CNN: “The Story of Luke” centers around a guy with autism who’s trying to get a job and get a girl. What’s been your connection to autism before this film?
Seth Green: I don’t know that I’ve had too much of a personal connection. I’ve met autistic people and I’ve seen the different ways Hollywood has portrayed them over the years. “The Story of Luke” is based on an amalgam of characters that (writer/director) Alonso Mayo met. He wanted to tell a story from the inside of a character who was unaware of something that’s different about them. Luke knows he’s special because he’s told he’s special but he doesn’t understand that there’s limitations to what he can aspire towards. My character is the opposite of that. He’s someone on the autistic spectrum who’s consistently been told that he’s only there to serve as guilt and empathy for anyone that’s neurologically typical. So he’s become bitter and isolated.
