Dev Patel isn’t comfortable with big roles

Actor Dev Patel isn’t comfortable playing a lead in a big-budget movie and would prefer be a part of an ensemble cast in a smaller production.

The Slumdog Millionaire star describes his time on M. Night Shyamalan’s movie The Last Airbender horrendous and admits he prefers working as part of an ensemble in smaller movies.

Working on something that big and trying to get heard as an actor is tricky. You feel so diluted and worthless.

he told Empire magazine.

I would happily shape my career doing great low-budget indies like that. I’m not that hero-type dude, so I’m never going to be playing the handsome lead character.

he added.
