Sarah Paulson and Luke Wilson on channeling their inner scumbags

Say what you will about The Goldfinch—and a lot of critics are—but at least it has Sarah Paulson and Luke Wilson in it. In the film, Wilson plays Theo’s alcoholic, gambling-addicted father who’s maybe around for the wrong reasons, while Paulson plays Xandra (“with an X”), a stripper turned bar manager with a passion for square-cut acrylic nails and Las Vegas sunbathing. In the interview above, The A.V. Club talks with Paulson and Wilson about harnessing their inner scumbags, as well as what their all-time favorite book-to-movie adaptations are.

Marah Eakin is the Executive Producer of all A.V. Club Video And Podcasts. She is also a Cleveland native and heiress to the country's largest collection of antique and unique bedpans and urinals.
