Sunny Suljic Defining Roles

The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) – Sunny Suljic plays Bob Murphy

Colin Farrell is reuniting with Lanthimos and a bit bushier and grayer than before.  He plays Dr. Steven Murphy, a noted and respected surgeon. Externally, he would seem to have it all. He’s powerful and successful with a gorgeous wife named Anna (Nicole Kidman), who happens to be an ophthalmologist. They have two children—15-year-old Kim (Raffey Cassidy) and younger Bob (Sunny Suljic). Steven has befriended a 16-year-old named Martin (Barry Keoghan), the son of a man who died on his operating table a few years ago. (Source: rogerebert.com)

Mid90s (2018) – Sunny Suljic plays Stevie

Stevie needs friends — he needs somebody — badly. The film opens with a head-on shot of his domestic hell. In the dank cramped chartreuse hall of his home, his older brother, Ian (Lucas Hedges), beats the holy crap out of him. Stevie has to find some sort of escape, but the kids who are offering it have almost nothing in common with him. Stevie is basically a nice sweet puppy with middle-class values and manners.  Whereas, his mostly older skate pals are a blitzed, fried, stunted, blunted crew of loutish teenage wastrels.

The House with a Clock in Its Walls – Sunny Suljic plays Tarby

The plot—about Lewis (Owen Vaccaro), a newly orphaned pre-teen who becomes a powerful warlock with some help from kooky uncle Jonathan (Jack Black)—is mostly adequate. And the scene-to-scene pacing is patient enough to establish the importance of certain key plot points and character dynamics. Also, the menagerie of computer-generated monsters, which includes talking dummies and sentient jack-o’-lanterns, are slick-looking. So if you’re not paying too much attention, you might be able to overlook the programmable nature.  Maybe you’re distracted by how much money you paid for your kid’s concession stand treats.  Or, maybe you’re watching the film alone at home.  (Source: rogerebert.com)

Sunny Suljic Quotes

I’m not really aware of it, you know what I mean? I don’t see it yet. I know that the reviews are really good and that it the trailer is everywhere, but I think it’s so insane that I’m the lead role in this film and it involves skating! It’s just like, I look at myself on the poster and it says Mid90s, and it doesn’t make sense to me. I’ve been in films before but this is so major for me! People are like, “You’re gonna be famous,” but I don’t feel it yet. It’s just gonna hit me one day.Sunny Suljic

I think their parents just want their kids to do what they couldn’t do. But sometimes it’s too forceful and it’s not what they like. My mom never put that pressure on me. She’d be like, “Whatever you want to do.” Obviously, she wasn’t like, “You can do anything!” But she supports whatever I do, and she’s pretty understanding. She’s not always gonna say yeah.  Well, with me and my mom too, my mentality is skating first and then acting. ‘Cause I grew up skating and started acting, so I can’t get rid of skating but I can get rid of acting. Even though that’s “where the money is” or whatever—I enjoy both.Sunny Suljic

Jonah is the best. Everyone in the cast, and Jonah as well, we’re very close. And I almost don’t even think of him as an actual director or writer or any of that. Just recently he came out with Maniac, and I looked at it as almost like, my friend just got into acting, and he got a show and booked something, and I’m just so proud of him. So I wouldn’t look at it as like, “Oh, Jonah just got another role.” I just look at it as like, “Oh, no way, I’m so happy for him, this is so sick.” Almost like it was his first time doing anything.Sunny Suljic
