Shannon Theule x Beck Hansen

Monday, February 15th, 2010

A few weeks ago we were filming a scene for the new Charlotte Gainsbourg video. In the last shot of the day I noticed a familiar face standing next to her. It appeared to be Will Ferrell, though it was unclear what he would be doing in a house in Canoga Park on a hot summer’s night standing in the back ground of a music video. The look-a-like turned out to be Shannon Thule, an extra working on the video. Coincidentally, I was planning to speak to Will in a few days time for the website. I took the opportunity to also speak with Shannon about his experiences living life as Will Ferrell’s doppelganger and growing up around the world. Here is the conversation.
