Mark Povinelli took time out of his busy schedule to take a call from The Kinkers to talk about stepping into the shoes of the character Kinko/Walter in Water for Elephants. We are so thankful to Mark for his time and sharing insight into his experience filming the movie. The interview is an audio recording placed into a video with Mark’s personal stash of photos from the set.

Our 30 minute interview includes answers to questions like:

  • Did you have as good of an experience working Augie, the dog that portrays Queenie, as Rob, Reese and Christoph did working with Tai the elephant?
  • What in the world is comic book porn and why is your character Kinko so obsessed with it? Why not real stuff?

Plus, find out what Mark thought about working with Reese, Rob, Christoph and Tai! And the Water for Elephants sequel – The Revenge of Kinko! ;)

Join Mark Povinelli and The Kinkers at our Cocktails with Team Rosie event Saturday night in New York City! Mark will be there signing autographs and taking pictures with fans!

Thanks so much to Mark for his time, and to Angelique for setting this up!
