LOS ANGELES – Vera Farmiga and Dax Shepard are definitely part of the Robert Downey Jr. fan club, especially after working with the “Iron Man” on “The Judge.”

But don’t discount: Billy Bob Thornton is apparently a pretty good hang.

The co-stars told HitFix reporter Louis Virtel what made their own roles in the flick so cool (or “cute-cucumber,” whatever your preference) too.

“I like taking on feminine characterizations I admire, and want to be more like,” Farmiga said of her role Samantha. “There’s a lot in between the lines.”

For Shepard, he said this is the first time ever he’s “played someone who’s a straight[-up] good person,” he said. “I’m not witty, I’m not making fun of anyone. I do my best… really acknowledging how I feel about Downey in real life. Which is ‘this guy is the greatest.'”

Which roles would the actors love to take from their movies, and turn into a TV show?

Frito from “Idiocracy” is certainly a fan favorite, as far as Shepard’s resumee is concerned. He likes to make his wife Kristen Bell laugh by busting out that dumbbell accent around the house.

And Farmiga would love to be that good ol’ “wacky prostitute” Oana from 2006’s “Breaking and Entering.”

Watch the rest of the interview above, on other fun moments from “The Judge,” why Shepard’s caught on the term “buffoon” and how fans see Farmiga after getting a load of Norma Bates from “Bates Motel.”

Robert Downey Jr. counts actress Vera Farmiga, one of his co-stars in The Judge, among “my favourite human beings in the world.” Back at you, Downey. Farmiga thinks so highly of you and of fellow co-star Robert Duvall that she calls working with the duo on The Judge “a great privilege.”

This kind of buttering-up can be utter nonsense, trite asides during a movie promotion. But, in this case, the mutual admiration sounds genuine and therefore believable. It started with the respect she had going in on the project, Farmiga says in a one-on-one interview prior to the release of The Judge, which is now playing in theatres.

“Duvall and Downey are arguably the best actors in the world. So there is a respect already that we all came with.” Naming other members of the ensemble, including Vincent D’Onofrio, Jeremy Strong, Billy Bob Thornton and Dax Shepard, Farmiga says “the calibre already is five-star across the board.”

Layer that support cast under the Duvall-Downey duo and the set was electric, Farmiga says. “So you come in with such respect and anticipation and joy — and that is what you yearn for as an actor, to have this kind of opportunity!”

VERA Farmiga will tell you that doing love scenes is awkward enough (“it’s just weird”), but when your on-screen love interest’s wife is a producer on the film and is standing just out of shot, it can prove downright bizarre.

“I’m sitting on Robert Downey Jr’s lap, and the director is telling me to move this way and that, and his wife Susan is standing there, nodding her head,” laughs the actor.

“The pressure was on me to please Susan. The first person I looked at was her, like, ‘Susan, is that OK?’ I mean, she kisses him on a daily basis — she’s the expert!”

Farmiga and Downey star in The Judge, an old-fashioned weepy (mixed with those old family resentments, grudges and things left unsaid) about Hank, a high-flying lawyer (Downey) who returns to his small hometown to deal with his gruff father (Robert Duvall), the town’s judge, who’s facing a murder charge.

Farmiga plays Sam, “a solid, peaceful gal”, and Hank’s high school girlfriend.

“She’s pretty much the only woman in the film,” groans Farmiga. “So there was a lot of testosterone flying around. Actually, it was good that Susan (Downey) was there!”

Farmiga reckons that “films like this” just aren’t being made in Hollywood, and that it took Downey’s star power to get the project across the line.

“I think there’s a very noble message here (about family). I know what it does for me in my life, I know what direction it points me to. What it sort of deems me guilty of in my life.”

Such as?

“I’m not going to tell you,” she laughs, “but in a general sense, I know where there’s anger, and indignation and hurt and resentment that I’m not addressing.”
