“Nic plays the character of Milton. Milton was a very bad guy when I lived on earth and he died and he went to Hell.
"I have a feeling that the way he left this earth is how he lived down there... I don’t think they have a barber’s shop around there. I don’t think you get groomed in Hell."
“Our co-writer/director Patrick Lussier really focused on the muscle cars and I’m a huge muscle car enthusiast. There’s some wild stunts."
"It’s not like Milton was a mild-mannered milkman who gets back and all of sudden gets tough. No, he was a tough dude before he left."
Vengeance Is Mine
“As Milton says in the film, you think you go to Hell you’re just alone down there. But there’s a live video-feed and you see everything that happens on Earth and all the shit that you did. Especially to the people you love. You see your actions and what they have to live with.
"He sees an injustice that’s happening to his daughter and he can’t take it and he figures out how to get out. So when he gets back, you really don’t want to mess with him.”
Death And Taxes
“I play The Accountant. He got a good job when he went to Hell. I don’t think he gets to come back that often, because I don’t think people break out of Hell that often.
"It’s a pretty rare event. But when he gets back, he gets a nice suit. He can shape-shift and move at incredible speeds.”
“I can tell you this much. We’ve all seen films that are shot to be an R-rated film and someone figures out, ‘Oh, let’s make it a PG, maybe we’ll get a bigger audience.’
"This film was meant to be R from the beginning, and Patrick never backed away from that. I’m shooting a hard R film. That’s it. And that’s what you get.”
“They say Amber Heard has some very short shorts in this movie. That’s what they say. And it’s true. She plays Piper, she’s like a young female version of Milton.
"She’s a good lady, loves her fiancé, but walks in and he’s with another woman. And boy, that just pisses her off. Don’t mess with her – she will take you out. She fights more than I do.”
Highway To Hell
“This is the Hell Car – which is cool. When you go back to Hell, let’s drive. They found this black ‘57 Chevy that was pretty torqued up.
"And it was like, ‘Sure, man. Why not go to Hell in a ’57 Chevy?’ I mean, if it’s gonna be an American road movie, tough and gritty, you can’t beat that.”
Mightier Than The Sword
"Well, there’s a gun in Hell called The God Killer. And Nic’s character steals it. And it’s probably the only thing that even The Accountant fears.
"There’s a great shot in the film when he pulls that thing out and he points it at me. And you can see the look on my face: ‘Oh shit. I didn’t know you had that ...’"
Crash And Burn
“I have an awesome car chase with Nic where he’s in this ‘69 Charger and I take a police car over and we get into a little side-by-side, just ripping over this very thin bridge.
"Doesn’t turn out too well for The Accountant – he takes a ride off the bridge. But you can’t hurt The Accountant... Watch this kid get hit by the car door.”
Death And The Maiden
“Amber and I have some really cool scenes. Because when I eventually find her, it’s my way to get to Milton. I have nothing against Piper.
"As I say to him, ‘I will get that pretty little lady in the back seat. You’d better come here...’”
