‘It’s Just The Best Job There Is’: Eric Roberts On ‘The Righteous Gemstones’ And His Fascinating Career Portraying Unsavory Characters

Nobody in Hollywood has had a career like the one Eric Roberts has had. It doesn’t even seem like he’s had a career. It’s more like several. In the 1980s, he was a hybrid of handsome leading man and quirky character actor, known for roles like the real-life killer Paul Snider in Bob Fosse’s Star 80, low-level criminal Paulie in The Pope Of Greenwich Village, and escaped convict Buck McGeehy in Runaway Train, for which he received an Academy Award nomination. By the end of the decade, he transitioned to muscular action star in films such as The Best Of The Best and The Specialist. After that, he became one of the most prolific actors to ever work in cinema, appearing in everything from The Dark Knight and Inherent Vice to Lifetime’s Stalked By My Doctor franchise, among his more than 600 acting credits. Oh, and there’s also his appearance in the iconic video for The Killers’ “Mr. Brightside,” which has been streamed on YouTube more than 464 million times.

Back to One, Episode 186: Eric Roberts

Barring any unforeseen circumstances, Eric Roberts will soon have more credits as an actor than anyone else who has ever lived anywhere in the world. An intensity matched only by raw talent on display in films like Star 80, The Pope of Greenwich Village, and Runaway Train established him as a respectable actor’s actor in Hollywood. And, as he talks about in this episode, once video replaced film, and more people began shooting, they wanted Eric Roberts in their movies. And once he became privy to how many offers were coming in, he started saying yes. Work begot work fairly quickly, and he never stopped. I ask him how he handles non-professional crews and actors on these ultra-low-budget sets, and if the drain on his energy is worth it. He compares acting to exercise, sex, and kissing, talks about the art of using cue cards, tells insightful stories about Mickey Rourke and Bob Fosse, explains why The Righteous Gemstones is his favorite working experience ever, plus much more.
