I’ve already posted video of Gina Torres and Bethany Joy Lenz discussing their favorite films (Torres digs The Shawshank Redemption and Lenz loves Equilibrium). Pearson co-star Simon Kassianides brought the movie discussion home with his picks of The Princess Bride and The Deer Hunter. Check out the video below!

Along with his work on the upcoming series Pearson, Simon Kassianides has starred in the James Bond feature Quantum of Solace and was a recurring actor on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Simon Kassianides on The Princess Bride and The Deer Hunter:

“I would say The Princess Bride because as a kid I was the spitting image of Fred Savage. I fell in love with Robin Wright then and I still love her. I watch that film the most. My favorite film, after that – I have to be greedy – is The Deer Hunter. It changed my life. The dynamics of friendship and the pain of war which luckily I haven’t experienced directly but my family did. Understanding those dynamics is heartbreaking. I’ve chose two because I’m greedy, but The Princess Bride would come first.”

Pearson, a Chicago-set Suits spinoff, is “coming soon” to USA Network.
