Award-winning set decorator Regina Graves (Blue Jasmine, I am Legend, The Knick, Gotham, Vinyl) joins us this week to talk about her work on Martin Scorsese’s epic new picture The Irishman, premiering on Netflix this week. Regina Graves shares some the most fascinating aspects of her teams work and the massive endeavor that was The Irishman, with nearly 300 sets dressed.
We talk how she collaborates closely with production designer Bob Shaw, with whom Graves has worked on multiple productions. The amount of detail that goes into finding or building pieces for, for example, Jimmy Hoffa's (Al Pacino) office set or for Russel Bufalino (Joe Pesci) and Frank Sheeran's (Robert De Niro) homes. How Martin Scorsese’s own family influenced the set decoration, the style of the Italian American gangster genre and so much more. And Regina Graves also talks about her latest production, the upcoming movie The Many Saints of Newark, the prequel movie to the Sopranos TV series.
The Irishman is out in a limited theatrical release now and premiered on Netflix on November 27th.
