We have added posters & key-Art, production stills and screencaptures of the first trailers and website of Matthias’ upcoming film “The Drop” in our gallery. The movie will be released on September 12, 2014 in the US after premiering at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. Matthias co-stars in the movie alongside Tom Hardy, the late James Gandolfini and Noomi Rapace.
THE DROP is a new crime drama from Michaël R. Roskam, the Academy Award nominated director of BULLHEAD. Based on a screenplay from Dennis Lehane (MYSTIC RIVER, GONE BABY GONE), THE DROP follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) through a covert scheme of funneling cash to local gangsters – “money drops” – in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. Under the heavy hand of his employer and cousin Marv (James Gandolfini), Bob finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood’s past where friends, families, and foes all work together to make a living – no matter the cost.
Fox Searchlight also released the first movie clips of the movie last week including one featuring Matthias and his co-star Tom Hardy.

Matthias covers OUT’s September 2014 issue. We have added the magazine scans and photoshoot in our gallery. Be sure to pick up your own copy while it’s on newsstands! The full interview can be found in our press archive and excerpts can be found below.
On potentially becoming typecast: “I don’t want to be pinned down as just a physical actor. I understand that people may think I am, since Bullhead and Rust and Bone popped up one year after another, but that’s a coincidence. I’ve done a lot of different stuff.”
On the vulnerability of acting: “When I get on set, I don’t know what’s going to happen,” he says. “And it makes you very vulnerable, as an artist, to do that. In our job, we’re always the subjects of judgment, and if you want to do the real work, I think you have to be vulnerable as hell. You have to be prepared to suck.”
On truthfulness leading to sexiness in acting: “What I think is sexy is truthfulness, and that’s something that overwhelms time. That’s why Marlon Brando is still sexy nowadays — not because he was a gorgeous guy, but because his work was truthful. The rest is form. That may make me want to have sex with someone, but it’s temporary, and in the end it’s bullshit.”
