The film A Little Prayer follows the story of a father named Bill (David Strathairn) who learns his son David (Will Pullen) is having an affair. Bill wants to save his daughter-in-law Tammy (Jane Levy) from the heartache but doesn’t know how or if he should intervene.


In an exclusive interview with uInterview, Pullen revealed what it was like working with Strathairn.

“Honestly, it’s one of those things where it’s like people say don’t meet your heroes, well that’s wrong with David Strathairn,” Pullen laughed. “I mean, I’ve been such a huge fan of his for so long and, you know, when I became a professional actor would I respect most of his choices as an actor, like I think he’s always choosing super interesting projects and he’s really an artist, so when I met him I was so nervous but he is just the kindest, most thoughtful man.”

Pullen also shared, “On set, we were both talking about how we love road trips and he was telling me about this book that he read called Blue Highways and I was like, ‘oh that sounds great.’ And then like three days later he came to set and he brought me the book and he’s just like that kind of guy, like always quietly kind and respectful and generous. He’s just a treat to work with.”
