Read Director Gary Ross on a Young Paul Walker

In this month's issue of The Hollywood Reporter, The Hunger Games director Gary Ross wrote a bit about casting Paul Walker in one of the actor's first roles: the naive jock Skip Martin in 1998's Pleasantville:

But before I could even call him to tell him he had the part, Paul showed up in the casting office. He was broke back then — really broke — and he was coming back to pick up his 8-by-10 headshots. He figured if we were all done with them, he could save the money on having new ones printed. It's like reusing a plastic fork.
