Ellen DeGeneres’ chat show helps John Turturro cast his movies

John Turturro binge watches Ellen DeGeneres’ daytime TV chat show when he’s casting roles in his films, because actors are much more themselves on the programme.
The Big Lebowski star made his first appearance on the show on Friday (30Sep16) and told the host he was impressed with the way she puts big names at ease.
He revealed he uses her programme as research when selecting stars for his projects, explaining, “Whenever I wanna cast someone in a movie I always kind of Google you and see how they do.
“You always get everyone to let their hair down on the show… You can see things that you can’t see sometimes when someone’s acting. It’s very different.”
