Sam Riley talks a bit about OTR He says they 'prepared for the film by attending 'Beatnik boot camp'

While Riley was eased into the role of Pinkie, it was a slightly different scenario on the set of his latest film, an adaptation of Jack Kerouac's On The Road, in which he plays Kerouac's autobiographical narrator, Sal Paradise.

"It was very intimidating to play Kerouac, or Sal Paradise, especially as an Englishman," he says. "And day one was a funeral scene," he grimaces.

The cast, including Twilight's Kristen Stewart, prepared for the film by attending 'Beatnik boot camp'.

"We all wore berets and moved around clicking our fingers," he jokes.

"It was an incredible experience. I'd never been to any of the places we went to. We went from Montreal to Chile to Argentina, Louisiana,
Arizona, Mexico, Calgary, San Francisco."
