  1. Interviews are harder than the actual making of the movie. Poor baby, we all know how he hates this part of his career. Love him absolutely, Sandy Someone tell me how to make this stop calling me AngelofMusic.
  2. In that business almost everything is insured by Lloyds. When I was in thebusiness they insured my nails, can you believe that? What a lovely interview. Ryan is right, all he has to do is stand there and most people are happy, but then that voice could literally say anything and be impressive. Love him absolutely, Sandy I don't know how this picked me up as AngelofMusic but I am shirsan. What happened?
  3. I would listen to this, but I truly dislike Howard Stern, and the tastlessness and constant vulgarity he considers entertaining...even Gerry can't make me listen...pity, never thought Gerry would agree to be on that show.
  4. gotta love him having a new movie out....talk show appearences galore! I am on cloud 9...
  5. when is Gerry going to be on Craig Ferguson?
  6. I have to say...I am usually pretty critical about the accent in an actor's performance, however, overall I was very pleasantly surprised with Gerry's accent in the trailer. The film looks wonderful, and I cannot wait to see it. Gerry works so hard, and while his accent change is def. noticable, I think he sounds fine and I know that accents are not always his strong point....and that's okay...a lot of actors have to work really, really hard to get the accent just right. And the vocal aspect of an actor's performance is very important, it's kind of a package deal you know...and I know, at least in my experience as a film buff, that if a person's accent sounds off, it kind of ruins it for me a bit, especially if they're portraying a real person. An actor having to change their accent is no different than them having to lose or gain weight, or change their hair or appearence.
  7. I just love it!! Like...oh my goodness...job well done to the person who designed it. If (big hypothetical 'if', because I SO do) I didn't want to see this before, I would now lol. I too also read that the trailer for it is coming Friday...dying of waiting...but yay, only three days away.
  8. The film looks terrific, and I completey agree with the article. I love Shakespeare so much, I always have, and it really bothers me when people do adaptations of his plays and make the adaptations so unrecognizable to the point where about the only thing that still makes it Shakespeare are the character's names. However, with someone like Ralph Fiennes who has had a very distinguished stage career performing those plays, I trust to do justice to the Bard's work because there is that genuine respect present. It is possible to modernize Shakespeare and also to have the original dialogue there at the same time, it's doing it correctly that can be very tricky. However, if this trailer is any indication, I have nothing to worry about.
  9. Got my copy in the mail a couple days ago...very cool to see him and his work gracing periodicals again.
  10. It should be interesting to see how Coriolanus and Machine Gun Preacher fair come awards season....it would be fantastic to see them get nominated for the big awards, but I really do not want to jump the gun and get my hopes up for Gerry to get nominated because I have in the past and I ended up getting disappointed, so I am just going to wait and see what happens. This year, it seems like there is going to be a good bit of competition as there seems to be so many great films out now or coming out in the next couple of months. I myself just saw Midnight in Paris yesterday....phenominal film, best Allen film in a very long time, and absolutely deserving of praise...could very well be one such film that's in the run for the big awards...it's that good.
  11. because the release date for the film in New York and Los Angeles is a little over two months away, and typically with a film...a trailer would have been released by now, if not an official trailer, at least a teaser...haven't seen one for Coriolanus either yet...curious....
  12. Gerry looks great and as handsome as ever...however, he looks positively annoyed and aggrivated too, and understandabley so, at the horrid paps...hate those guys!! Can't they just leave him alone for like two seconds?!? I feel so bad for him...like so bad. Poor G
  13. Great interview!! I agree though, what was with her pronunciation of Gerry's name? I've been a fan of his since forever, and I've never heard him say it like that let alone anyone else. I already knew Gerry had been an extra on The Bodyguard however....I think I can remember what scene he is in, its a big crowd scene, I know that, its just been a while since I've watched that movie so I can't recall specifically.
  14. I did not care for The Bounty Hunter at all, so that little caption in the picture made me laugh, I think Gerry is far too good an actor to be wasting his time on romantic comedies like The Bounty Hunter...JMO... I did thoroughly enjoy reading this article, however, and I eagerly await to see Coriolanus...its about time he did a real meaty role, and to top it off its Shakespeare too.
  15. I agree as well...while all these new pics are a very welcome treat, because my goodness does he look amazing... ...I still hate seeing the paps constantly following his every move. It must be especially irritating for him no doubt, he cannot do anything without those people just shooting away. He's a saint for putting up with it constantly and being such a good sport, because I know that I would never be so courteous to them as he is if I were in his position.
  16. While I absolutely agree that portaying such iconic figures can be treading on dangerous waters, in the past, I've seen that it can be done. For example Joaquin Phoenix did an excellent job portraying the great Johnny Cash, and the same can be said of Jamie Foxx's portrayal of Ray Charles, or Cate Blanchett's portrayal of Elizabeth I (that one, as a history buff, blew me away). I have every belief that if Gerry does indeed get offered this role, and he accepts, that he would do an outstanding job. As for Liz Taylor, my vote still goes to Natalie Portman...for an actress who has been one since she was 11, she really has become an extraordinary performer.
  17. well Vivien Leigh will actually be a character in "My Week with Marilyn", because she was Olivier's wife at the time when Olivier directed and starred in the film "The Prince and the Showgirl" along side Monroe, which is what "My Week with Marilyn" is all about, the filming of that movie. Leigh will be portrayed by Julie Ormond. The character of Arthur Miller will also be in the film, and he will be played by Dougray Scott...which also makes me smile. There is GREAT casting in this film.
  18. I'm such a "Oscar"-type person, and its especially heart-warming for me to see the smaller, lesser known films get rewarded, and just like last year, there are a ton of films this year that look so fantastic. I cannot wait to see "A Dangerous Method". I'm still waiting to see "Jane Eyre" but luckily I heard that the dvd for that will be out in August, so yay . I've also been dying to see "Midnight in Paris", as well as "Beginners", but there aren't a whole lot of indie films shown where I live so, again I have to wait for the dvds for those two. I absolutely plan on seeing "The Help" because I'm reading the book to it now, and it is such a phenominal book and I can't wait to see what they do with it. Besides those, obviously Gerry's two films lol, both of which I know will be amazing. And also the film "My Week with Marilyn" starring Michele Williams, I want to see that one so much, especially because the ever amazing Kenneth Branagh will be portraying Laurence Olivier. Man, I am going to be so busy come award season lol, watching everything and anything.
  19. I adore the thought of Natalie Portman playing Liz Taylor, she is such an outstanding actress, her performance in Black Swan alone is enough to convince me as such let alone her entire body of work. She like Taylor also had a great deal in common in terms of what it meant to be a child actor, because both were. I think she along side Gerry would be so utterly terrific, and with Scorsese at the helm (such a huge fan of his!!)...yeah, this could be big. Scarlett J. is all wrong, as are a few others suggested, Rachel Weisz could be good, but I think she look too old to play the part.
  20. Gerry could be a great Burton...he looks sort of like him. I also like the suggestion on the site of James Purefoy to play Burton. As for AJ...I've never been a fan, so I wouldn't ever want to see her play Liz Taylor...she doesn't really look a whole lot like her either, and I don't think she's dare I say, good enough to portray such a legend. Just my opinion.
  21. I've been dying to see this movie, really, but do I see myself seeing it before dvd release? No. This is simply because it is not the kind of film that typically has nation-wide releases, which sucks so much. I have every ammount of faith in the Weinsteins, and know that they are more than capable of producing good work. Heck their company distributed my two favorite films last year, Black Swan and The Kings Speech. And I'm such an indie film person anyway, and honestly about 90 percent of the movies that I'm interested in seeing are all independent or 'art-house', plus I'm a Shakespeare buff. But, I'm just thinking realistically and I feel that most people won't know about this film and it therefore won't get wider distribution.
  22. dang...and I was so looking forward to seeing this around my birthday...oh well.
