Hayden Christensen interview and BTS video for 90 Minutes in Heaven.
In this video interview for the movie 90 Minutes in Heaven, Hayden talks about his experience on the movie and getting to know "the" Don Piper in preparation for his role of portraying the Baptist minster. At the end of the video there is a behind the scenes video of Hayden and Don Piper speaking at the kick-off banquet for the movie. Even though this part of the video is silent, Hayden is particularly animated in the segment using a lot of hand gestures. Wish I could read lips and his sign language. Hayden looked very enthusiastic and happy to be there. You can watch the video below and look for 90 Minutes in Heaven in theaters on September 11, 2015 in the US and Canada.

Hayden about his portrayal of Don Piper
“I got to spend a lot of time with Don Piper, the actual Don, Hayden says with a smile. And it was a privilege and an honor. He was extremely generous with his time and I think really kind of took me under his wing, so to speak. He really gave me the tools I needed to play him and it was really special for me.
It wasn't that I ever wanted to do a Don Piper impersonation but it was very important to me that I get all the subtleties and nuances of who he is right, and be able to honestly capture what he was like at that time in his life, and try my best to inhabit the sort of pain and confinement of what he went through. But it wasn't possible without his guidance.
Don is referred to as the "Minister of Hope". I think that this is a story about hope and I hope that people will leave this film feeling uplifted and feeling better about life as I did when I put down the script the first time.”
