As we posted before, Joel is at the new edition of Esquire UK! On this new interview, Joel discuss his new movie, Bright, and much more, check it out:

Joel Edgerton must be exhausted. He’s 35 days into the shoot for Boy Erased, the film he has written and is in the process of directing, producing and starring in. It’s taken time for the 43-year-old to get to this point of polymathic authority, but he’s glad that success came relatively late. “If I’d come to it too young, I’d have blown it in some way,” reckons the Australian actor. “You know, by becoming one of the casualties of war, the casualties of too much attention. To be very frank, a slow-burning career has given me the opportunity to fail on a smaller scale.”

That slow burn began in the mid-Nineties. After drama school in Sydney, Edgerton and his brother Nash hatched a plan to make short films that allowed the pair’s respective acting and stuntman abilities to shine, but after years of graft, it wasn’t until 2010 that Joel crossed the bridge to the big time. There were appearances in major productions along the way — King Arthur (2004), Smokin’ Aces (2006) and even a turn as Luke Skywalker’s uncle Owen Lars in Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith (2005) — but it was his work in Gavin O’Connor’s MMA movie Warrior and Aussie crime drama Animal Kingdom, that got him noticed by the right people.

“Neither lit the box office on fire,” recalls Edgerton, “but I think film-makers like to watch good films, and both Animal Kingdom and Warrior were well-realised movies. The opportunities suddenly became available that weren’t there before. I was always looking at the level up, the quality of scripts that was a little out of my reach. Movies like Warrior and Animal Kingdom, they lift you up so you can reach the better scripts.”

He hasn’t taken his foot off the gas in the past seven years. There was hunt-for-bin-Laden thriller Zero Dark Thirty (2012), Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby (2013), Ridley Scott epic Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014), Black Mass (2015), and thriller The Gift (2015), his directorial debut. The story of a bullied man terrorising his aggressor years later didn’t smash any attendance records but it enjoyed critical acclaim — The New York Times called it a “superior specimen” — and was further vindication for Edgerton’s late arrival to Hollywood’s top table.
