TC: As opposed to Armie, I have the tremendous benefit of absolutely nobody having any idea who I am, so I didn't feel like there was too much on the line. I didn't have The Social Network and that street cred, and this just felt like a fantastic opportunity to play a role at a young age that's complex, and layered, and contradictory. These roles for young characters really don't exist. It's very rare. I read a book called The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and I thought that was similar to Call Me by Your Name and awesome.
To work with Luca, whose other movies are amazing, and James Ivory's screenplay...for a young guy, how do you say no to that?
