Heroes Ando Will Have a Bigger Role In Season 4

Heroes Ando Will Have a Bigger Role In Season 4


"He's going to set up a new business with Hiro [Masi Oka], so that's going to keep him busy," Lee said in an exclusive interview Thursday night in Pasadena, Calif., at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. "We're back at Yamagato. This new venture that we're starting, it's a handful right now. That's what this volume is about. It's about 'Can we go back to our normal lives and try to continue?' Him and I are obviously trying to take over for his father, my boss, but there's always little villains popping out of the woods, and we got to go fight crime again."

The new venture will remain a surprise, but Lee conceded it is related to superpowers. "I'm going to save it for the premiere, but you'll find out the first episode," Lee said. "You're going to see a giant billboard."

In the private sector, Ando's partnerships might get sketchy. "He's going to partner with somebody that you would never expect on the show," Lee said. "I'm going to keep that a little bit [mysterious], but someone that you totally did not expect."

Unfortunately, the bromance between Hiro and Ando may take a sad turn. "My buddy's dying, so he's got kind of a bucket list, because he wants to do all this stuff before he dies," Lee said. "I'm going to see if I can maybe change his fate a little bit. That's a big theme on our show. Can you really mess with fate? Can you change or alter history? Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I'll see. If I could change one thing from the history of the show, then what would it be? That's a good question that I think everybody asks in this season."

With time-travel powers available, it's not a leap to imagine that Ando could visit scenes we already know, from a new perspective. "You're getting warmer, my friend, you're getting warmer," Lee said. "I'd say don't be surprised if we revisit some of our favorite scenarios from when we first started."

Don't get too down about Hiro's illness: You'll still get the usual fun buddy banter between Hiro and Ando. "These guys, we are sort of the comedic aspect of the show," Lee said. "We want to keep it going. Sometimes when you have a death wish like my buddy, you tend to do crazier stuff, so I'm going to see if I can guide him a little bit on the way."

Lee expects to appear in between 12 and 15 of the season's 19 episodes.

"Maybe having a little bit lower expectations than we usually had before, I think it's going to favor the show, because now we're sort of the underdogs," Lee said. "Now we're just doing our thing. The writers are just writing, having a good time, so I think that's why this season will be a fun one. Unlike a movie, which has a definite beginning and an end and they have all this prep time, we have such a short turnaround time, I think the writers got maybe two weeks off in between seasons. I think that was a little too much. You brain's fried. You've got to recharge and come up with more stories. So we've had the time of rest this time, and I think it's helping. I love the writers on our show, man. When they just let them do their thing, that's when it happens."

Underworld 4 a Go. And will be in 3-D


Underworld 4 a Go. And will be in 3-D

Sony's Screen Gems is moving ahead with a fourth film in the "Underworld" franchise and is targeting a January 2011 release. The movie will be shot in 3-D.

We've received no word yet if Underworld: Rise of the Lycans stars Michael Sheen, Bill Nighy and Rhona Mitra, or former franchise stars Kate Beckinsale and Scott Speedman will return for the next film.

Back in February, we reported that the studio was pleased with the performance of the prequel that opened on January 23. The film was made for just $35 million and earned $91.1 million worldwide, not counting DVD and Blu-ray sales.

The film could star Either Kate Beckinsale or Rhona Mitra both are great eye candy to look at and the movies aren't half bad either.

New details on the Star Trek Sequel



New details on the Star Trek Sequel
Remember a couple of weeks ago when Star Trek's Zoe Saldana told SCI FI Wire that she believed the script for a second movie was about halfway done?

That is apparently news to screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, who told us on Thursday that they feel complimented that Saldana thinks they are so productive.

"She's so generous," Orci said in a group interview at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Pasadena, Calif., where he and Kurtzman were promoting Fox's Fringe. "She thinks so much and so highly of us. We had about a 15- [to] 30-minute discussion with the whole gang and went our separate ways. We're still in the re-reading and taking-it-all-in phase before we actually sit down and start designing it."

Developing a worthy sequel to this year's generally acclaimed and certainly lucrative Trek reboot will take much more time, Kurtzman said. They have to exhaust every possible idea to find the best ones.

"We take nothing for granted at this point," Kurtzman said. "We're only going to do it when it's really right."

The discussions include brainstorming classic Trek missions, which could be revisited with a new timeline established thanks to Spock and Nero's time travel. Even generating new ideas brings up past Trek episodes, Orci said.

"Even when you pitch stuff, sometimes someone will be like, 'Wow, that's like that one episode,'" Orci said. "So even in trying to stay away from it, you can crash back in there."

With so many Trek ideas in play, the writers have toyed with possibilities of multiple sequels, though they are not ready to announce a multi-picture commitment. "It was more the fact that we talked about the minute you start seeing how much Star Trek there is and how many ideas everyone's having, you could have enough material," Orci said. "There's been 43 years of material, so that's all that we meant by that. It has to cross your mind. But we're not leaning one way or the other yet.
At the same time, the writers want to make sure any follow-up is not too Trek-heavy, so as not to confuse the new fans who were brought into the fold by director J.J. Abrams' movie. "A lot of what makes die-hard Trekkers really focused on Trek are those details that can sometimes be alienating to people who are not on the inside," Kurtzman said. "That leads us back to what are the big themes, the emotional ideas? That's a language everybody speaks."

One thing Orci does want to do is get more classic catchphrases into the sequel. Memorable moments in Abrams' Trek included Spock Prime's "Live long and prosper" and young Bones' saying, "Dammit, Jim, I'm a doctor, not a ... ." An example of a possible catchphrase to come? Bones has yet to say "He's dead, Jim."

"I noted that," Orci admitted. "I was watching cable the other night, watching Star Trek. It's been on rotation, the original series. He said, 'He's dead, Jim.' I was like, 'Oh, that has to go [in the script].'"

Abrams' childhood friend, Heroes star Greg Grunberg, has appeared in some form or other in most of Abrams' projects: In Trek, he was the voice of Kirk's stepfather on the car phone. Grunberg has begun telling reporters that he wants to play Harry Mudd in a future Star Trek and most recently said it on Wednesday at the TCA summer press tour. Orci agreed to consider Grunberg's proposal. "It's a good idea," Orci said.

Orci went on to detail the collaboration between himself and Kurtzman, director Abrams and producers Damon Lindelof and Bryan Burk. "We're going to come up with the story together, obviously, in consultation with J.J. and Bryan," Orci said. "Then we're going to write it up together, the story. Also Damon, and then Alex and I will go write the script."

Lindelof won't be available for day-to-day writing work, as he runs the final season of Lost. "That's the thing, exactly," Orci said. "He's got this other little thing going on right now."

Is Terminator 5 in McG's Future?


Is Terminator 5 in McG's Future?
I was one of the few people out there who didn't Think Terminator Salvation was that bad of a movie. Well of course the ending was bad. But the rest of the Movie holds up pretty well.
Here is the article from IESB-
But According to IESB McG has plans for a Terminator 5 Movie

Hot off the heels of TERMINATOR SALVATION, director McG says he's already hard at work prepping the next installment regardless of the fan criticism he's received.
He seems to be following the Michael Bay Transformers model and jumping right back into the franchise.

At an interview with the producer/director about HUMAN TARGET his latest dive into TV starring Jackie Earle Haley, McG spoke candidly to IESB about the next TERMINATOR film.

McG: Yeah. I'm prepping 20,000 Leagues, every day, but I'm concurrently prepping Terminator 5, another Terminator picture. So, we're cooking that up. And then, I'm very active in Spring Awakening, the musical, also. So, we'll see. But, my focus, right now, is really pushing forward with 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

IESB: Do you want to take time off between Terminator films?

McG: It's interesting. Obviously, Michael Bay had tremendous success following Transformers, in a very short window. Sometimes people like to take time off, but I'm excited about the next installation of the story, in the Terminator idea.

So, for me, it's terribly exciting to get back out there and show a different face of that idea, and perhaps get out of the apocalyptic world and into a contemporary world. I think the audience is going to be very excited about our way in. I haven't talked to anybody about that yet. You're the first one.

IESB: Do you listen to fan criticism, or is that just too much information?

McG: No, I listen to everything. It's interesting because a lot of people don't like me, but a lot of people just don't like my name. I can't take that too seriously because that's been my name my whole life. It's not something that I prescribed myself. So, I just gotta roll forward and, hopefully, have the films do the talking.

You take your lumps, if they don't like it, and you enjoy it a lot more when they do. We've all been on every side of that, and what can you do, but figure out what you did right and what you did wrong, look at it a little more closely, study the people that you look up to, and continue to evolve as a storyteller.

Funny Man Zach Galifianakis Talks Hangover 2


Funny Man Zach Galifianakis Talks Hangover 2

I am not sure what they can do to this movie to make it any better then it was. Every time you make a sequel, Sure it can turn out better then the first movie. And then there are the sequels that Bomb. Like Caddyshack 2.Why mess with a good thing. But in Hollywood " Money Talks "
Here is a Exclusive interview with Funny Man Zach Galifianakis From IGN.

IGN: There was certainly a lot of buzz about The Hangover before it opened, including talk of a sequel. There was confidence it was a good film and would connect, but was it still astonishing to you to see just how big it is? That it's passed Beverly Hills Cop as the biggest R-rated comedy ever?

Galifianakis: You know what it was… I had dinner with the director, Todd Phillips, the other day and he was driving me back to my place. And I said, "I think it worked because there was some fresh jokes." I don't mean that there was groundbreaking new humor, but we would do some jokes and I'd say, "Todd, I've seen that before." Even with the jockstrap stuff. I'd seen fat guys in tighty-whities before. I said, "Give him a jockstrap." It was that kind of small thing… Not that that was the revolutionary thing. [Laughs] But it was those kind of small, little things… You need to surprise an audience.

They've become so saturated now, comedies. Cursing has become the new wit and it just drives me crazy when I see that. I saw a movie -- I won't say which -- and every character cursed. And that's fine, if you give them a reason to be that way. But they just did it gratuitously.

So this movie, The Hangover, had some cursing in it and all that stuff, but my character did not curse. I asked if he could not curse. I just didn't want to do it. So there's little elements like that that maybe were kind of new to people. Also, nobody knew the cast and that in a weird way helped. I think Todd Phillips knows… the studio left him alone. They gave him one note. They didn't meddle. And that's the reason, I think, that it's a good movie. They admitted they didn't know what they were doing and let Todd edit the way he wanted and shoot the way he wanted. We got very lucky, also. A good movie, a good TV show is coincidental I think. Because there are so many elements that have to fall into place and we worked hard, but there's some luck involved as well. That's a long answer!

IGN: What has Todd said about the sequel? Has he said where he wants to go with it?

Galifianakis: He is writing the script. But I haven't seen the script. I'm not running to do The Hangover 2. I told Todd, the last thing I want is the Police Academy chain all of the sudden, where I'm only known from… You've got to be careful with something like that. The movie's really good, why bother with a sequel? And I'm not saying that I'm not going to do it. I'm just posing these questions. These are things I ask Todd. Obviously, the reason is executives have Bentleys to pay for. I would love, love, love to work with those guys again. The script has to be good! But I'm working with Todd on a movie we'll be shooting in about six weeks. So I'll do that first, and then we'll see how it goes. Read more...

Chris Rocks Good Hair Trailer.

Chris Rocks Good Hair Trailer.

This whole thing started with one question from his daughter."Daddy,how come I don't have good hair?" It looks like we should all thank his daughter for asking that question. The documentary Looks like it is going to be funnier then shit. I can hardly wait to see this one.
When Chris Rock’s daughter, Lola, came up to him crying and asked, “Daddy, how come I don’t have good hair?” the bewildered comic committed himself to search the ends of the earth and the depths of black culture to find out who had put that question into his little girl's head! Director Jeff Stilson’s camera followed the funnyman, and the result is Good Hair, a wonderfully insightful and entertaining, yet remarkably serious, documentary about African American hair culture.An exposé of comic proportions that only Chris Rock could pull off, Good Hair visits hair salons and styling battles, scientific laboratories, and Indian temples to explore the way black hairstyles impact the activities, pocketbooks, sexual relationships, and self-esteem of black people. Celebrities such as Ice-T, Kerry Washington, Nia Long, Paul Mooney, Raven Symoné, Maya Angelou, and Reverend Al Sharpton all candidly offer their stories and observations to Rock while he struggles with the task of figuring out how to respond to his daughter’s question. What he discovers is that black hair is a big business that doesn’t always benefit the black community and little Lola’s question might well be bigger than his ability to convince her that the stuff on top of her head is nowhere near as important as what is inside.

Movie is due out October 9,2009

Little Red Riding Hood Getting a Goth Remake


Little Red Riding Hood Getting a Goth Remake


Looks like we maybe getting a Darker Version of Little Red Riding Hood. With a Gothic Twist.Sounds a little out of the norm. But enough of the Happy versions of Riding Hood. Let's come with something new.
Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way banner is developing a Gothic reimagining of Little Red Riding Hood with screenwriter David Leslie Johnson, Variety reported:

The Warner Bros.-based banner partnered with Johnson on horror pic Orphan, which has grossed $28 million in its first 11 days. ...

The best-known version of the story—in which a wolf disguises himself to fool a girl delivering food to her sick grandmother in the forest—was published in the 19th century by the Brothers Grimm. Earlier oral versions of the tale, which date back to the Middle Ages, are far darker and sometimes involve a werewolf rather than a wolf; the first published version, by Charles Perrault, concludes with Red Riding Hood eaten by the wolf, with no happy ending.

Here is some back ground on Riley Courtesy of Twilightwikia

Spoiler-You have Been Warned

Riley was among the first humans, if not the first, that Victoria changed into a vampire so as to form her army. She needed an older vampire to help control the newborns. To get him to work with her, Victoria told him that she loved him and convinced him to serve her faithfully. He corralled the other new vampires and told them what their mission was and what they were supposed to do.

Riley was also the one who came into Bella's room to get her scent. This was because he was the only mature vampire there besides Victoria. If any newborns had come there, Charlie would have been killed. Thankfully, Riley spared him.

When he faced Edward in the clearing, Edward tried to convince him to give up the fight by telling him how Victoria really felt about him (she didn't really love him; her mate was James who was killed in Twilight), but Victoria’s hold on him was too strong. He tried to attack Edward, but Seth got to him first. Seth, with a little help from Edward, managed to kill Riley.

Movie is in Pre Production as we speak.

Is Smallville Coming back for a 10th Season?


Is Smallville Coming back for a 10th Season?


Dawn Ostroff, president of entertainment for The CW, confirmed that the network's not quite finished with Smallville, though it's been reported that the upcoming ninth season might be its last.

"I hope it's not the last season," Ostroff told reporters at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Pasadena, Calif., today. "I think the producers have done a great job coming up with really good storylines this year, but I do think the show still has a lot of life yet to it."

Smallville moves to Fridays this fall, when Ostroff wants to use the long-running series to anchor a new night of programming (WWE Smackdown previously ruled The CW on Fridays).

"This is the first year we're actually migrating all of our viewers to Friday night," Ostroff said. "We felt the best way to open up Friday night was with a big established hit like Smallville."

Ostroff is also holding the door open for the return of Michael Rosenbaum, who played Lex Luthor for several seasons but recently left the show. "I wouldn't rule it out, but I don't know if it will happen this season," she said. "I don't know if we really actually had a conversation with Michael, but I think the idea was to keep the character alive and make his presence really felt."

Supernatural, which was Smallville's companion series on Thursday nights, also continues to go strong. "We hope Supernatural will go on," Ostroff said. "Eric Kripke's done a great job with the show. Creatively, the show has gotten stronger every year. The cast is wonderful, so we're hopeful it will stay on the air for a long time."

Smallville returns Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. Supernatural returns Sept. 10 at 9 p.m.

Exclusive Zachary Levi From NBC Chuck Interview.

I was lucky enough to get a short exclusive with Zachary Levi the star of one my wife’s favorite shows “Chuck” during an autograph signing on Saturday at Comic Con.

Q: Were you nervous about Chuck getting renewed for a 3rd season?

A: I was cautiously optimistic. We have the greatest fans in the world and they did a great job letting the studio know that Chuck needed to be renewed. The subway sandwich campaign was Awesome!

Q: I know that you are a gaming/Comic Con fan. Were you able to go the Tron panel on Thursday or to Flynn’s Arcade ?

A: No, I wasn’t.

Q: I have a Flynn’s Arcade Coin for you…

A: Oh wow, thanks a lot. I am going to put this right in my pocket!

I also talked to him about my wife and how much she likes him but I won’t go into that since she will kill me. The one question that I forgot to ask is what is his favorite sandwich but don’t worry I was able to do a little research and it turns out it is a Turkey Breast on wheat with all the fixings from Subway of course.

I have to say that Zachary Levi is one of the coolest actors out there and definitely someone that I would just like to go hang out and have a beer with. Read more...

Meet the lovely ladies of GI Joe


Meet the lovely ladies of GI Joe

Female characters in military-action-fantasy films are often second-class citizens, reduced to serving as eye candy and standing on the sidelines while the guys handle the heroics and/or the villainy, but that ain't the case with G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Yes, the guys figure prominently, but the ladies are the guys' equals in every way.

What are we talking about here? Well, in the movie, which opens Friday, Sienna Miller (Stardust) plays Ana, better known as the butt-kicking, duplicitous baddie the Baroness. Rachel Nichols (Star Trek, Alias) is one of the protagonists, Scarlett, who's both book-brilliant and a martial-arts master. They fight everyone and anyone and, of course, each other.

"That's what really appealed to me about the script, was the fact these women hold their own," Miller said in an exclusive joint interview with Nichols on Saturday in New York. "I imagined, like [many people will], that they'd probably just be the eye candy, and instead they're fully developed, they both have arcs. They're strong, and they're good fighters."

Nichols nodded in agreement. "Yeah, we can play with the boys," she said. "We can go toe to toe with them. We can prove that G.I. Joe is not just for boys, obviously. That was great. It's always nice to see [that]."

<


Much of G.I. Joe was shot on green screens, with the effects added in later. As a result, Miller and Nicholas said that seeing the completed film for the first time was an eye-opening experience.

"We all saw the film for the first time in Australia, at the beginning of the press tour," Nichols said. "When you're making a film with CG, even though a lot of it is actually live-action, you really have to trust your director. When he said, 'This is what it's going to look like in the final product,' you just have to sort of go with the flow and agree. [Director] Stephen [Sommers] really, I think, went above and beyond and exceeded all expectations."

Miller added, "Yeah, we really loved it. We were cheering. It was really funny, because it was just the cast watching it, and Marlon [Wayans] came on, and we were like, 'Whoooo!' And with Channing [Tatum], we were like, 'Yeah!' and screaming the whole way through and laughing at things, little in jokes. But it was so much fun. I think it's a great film."

New Photo of Iron Man 2


New Photo of Iron Man 2

New Picture of Robert Downey Jr playing Tony Stark Has been going around the Web. Marvel has released the new picture.

One of the coolest scenes in "Iron Man" was Tony Stark engineering the Iron Man suit in his workshop where he interacted with holographic images. We had a chance to revisit Tony's workshop on the set of "Iron Man 2" where we were required to wear padded slippers to walk around. The reason being, the entire floor of Tony's workshop was covered with a reflective black tile utilized to reflect interactive, holographic images anywhere in the room!

While we looked around, there were remnants of the first film throughout. There was the gaping hole in the ceiling referencing Tony's first flight test.

But there was a lot of new, too--like all models of the Iron Man suit being on display, including the newly joined Mark IV. This new suit has much broader shoulders and wrist guards compared to the Mark III, which still displays battle damage from the fight with Iron Monger.

Elsewhere in the shop were newly added posters and signs on the walls from various oil conglomerates. There is even a poster in the same style of Barack Obama's presidential campaign poster showing a "stark" red and blue silhouette of Iron Man. It is clear "Iron Man 2" is injecting the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the current "realities" of society.

But the most interesting section was a carpeted corner that looked unkempt and much more cluttered. This section seemed separate from the rest of Tony's workshop. It featured numerous blueprints, an old film projector, newspaper clippings, a German passport and numerous references to NASA. It appeared Howard Stark was connected with the Manhattan Project, which will be an important clue in discovering what Tony's father was working on. The entire set provided a very Cold War aesthetic indicating a Russian slant to the film.

In addition to walking on the set, we were privy to witness two scenes being film for "Iron Man 2." The first scene depicted Tony (Robert Downey Jr.) looking down at a scale model of the Stark Expo, which closely resembles the New York World's Fair Pavilion. This included a Unisphere at the center of the convention. As the camera panned from the level of the model towards Tony looking inquisitive at the Stark Expo, he spoke to himself, "The key to the future is...where?"

The second scene we saw featured a much more animated Tony, as he interacted with Jarvis in his workshop. The sequence required Tony to utilize the holographic-floor as he paced around the workshop to investigate further into the main pavilion of the Stark Expo. Prior to filming the sequence, we saw Downey speak with the post-production director regarding the ideal gestures and motions to best interact with the planned projected images.

In this scene Tony reconstructs the main pavilion by enlarging and relocating structures with his hand motions. Doing so evidently allows Tony to reach a conniption prompting him to remark to Jarvis, "I am discovering-rediscovering-a new element."

Having viewed these scenes it became apparent that a central mystery in "Iron Man 2" requires Tony to look into his father's past, specifically the Stark Expo. This will play a major role in the energy crisis, which is a chief issue in the film.

Movie comes out May 7, 2010

Steven Spielberg is going to Direct Remake of Harvey.


Steve Spielberg is going to Direct Remake of Harvey.

Havrvey was Made into a Movie in 1950 Staring James Stewart and a classic Stage Hit.

The classic stage hit gets the Hollywood treatment in the story of Elwood P. Dowd who makes friends with a spirit taking the form of a human-sized rabbit named Harvey that only he sees (and a few privileged others on occasion also.) After his sister tries to commit him to a mental institution, a comedy of errors ensues. Elwood and Harvey become the catalysts for a family mending its wounds and for romance blossoming in unexpected places. Written by Mary Chase

A press release from Spielberg

“I am very happy to be working again with my friend Tom Rothman who shepherded us through ‘Minority Report,’ and with Elizabeth and Carla, who I’m looking forward to collaborating with,” said Spielberg. “DreamWorks has experienced a creative and profitable relationship with Twentieth Century Fox in the past, and I look forward to renewing that time together.” Read more...

Jeremy Renner Going to be the Next Mad Max?



Jeremy Renner Going to be the Next Mad Max?
I sure hope so. He is a Great actor and with his acting in the New movie Hurt Locker and the Oscar Buzz for him. I think that he would be the Best choice.

Q: What attracted you to the role and script?

A: It was a complicated role. Everybody asks me, what makes that guy do his job? That to me was someplace I could go to understand somebody. Who does that kind of job? That made me really curious. It's one of the best written antiheroes I've read in 10 years. I was fortunate enough to play him.

Q: How did you get into the mind-set of a guy whose job it is to not get blown up?

A: I got to train and spend time in the bomb suit with EOD techs. Some of these guys have done four tours, were going back for another tour, were just starting. So I got to pick their brains. They were very gracious and giving with time.

What I love about the film is that people will all take something different from it. That's what I dig about it. Good cinema doesn't tell you what to think or how to think. But it certainly encourages you to think and feel something. I could tell you what I think the character is about, but the right answer is what the audience thinks.

Q: How was it working with director Kathryn Bigelow? Were you a fan of her work before?

A: Yeah, I was. I had seen probably five of her films prior. When I got the script, I was very excited to hear that she was fighting for me to do the film. I was in London shooting "28 Weeks Later" at the time and the producer gave it to me and said Kathryn was a fan of mine because of "Dahmer."

Q: How were conditions? Was it physically challenging?

A: Yeah, the shooting conditions were tough for everyone. ... It wasn't like there was a trailer to go back to and eat green M&Ms. Everything -- the flies, the sweat, the redness -- was real. There is no makeup in this movie; no acting in this movie. It's only reacting because of how Kathryn set up the shots.

Q: You'll be here Friday for the première. What does it mean to you to be able to screen the movie in your hometown?

A: It's really important for me to come back. I am curious to see what the audience in Modesto thinks. I'm really glad I'm getting a chance to bring it to the hometown.

Q: Does the excitement around "The Hurt Locker" take the sting out of "The Unusuals" being canceled?

A: Well, I was already feeling the momentum on "The Hurt Locker" when they were deciding if the show was going to go or not. I would have been happy if (the show) came back; it was a great series and cast.

But I am much happier to be in film. I think the quality of TV is great, but it doesn't fulfill me as an artist. It's not as creative or collaborative as I'd like it to be and just can get a little stifling. But that's just me. I've definitely always been a film guy.

Q: What is next for you?

A: I'm off to Boston on Aug. 19 for a film Ben Affleck is directing called "The Town." It's based on the novel "Prince of Thieves" about a group of career bank robbers. One of the robbers falls in love with a girl we rob. So it's a great crime thriller and romance. It's a lot of fun.

I'm a robber. Ben will direct and star. It also has Rebecca Hall ("Vicky Cristina Barcelona"), Jon Hamm ("Mad Men"), and Blake Lively ("Gossip Girl") plays my sister.


I'm also fighting to do the new Mad Max film with George Miller. That might be next summer. I'm screen-testing and meeting George Miller.
Q: Are you also clearing space on your calendar for March 7, 2010, the date of next year's Oscars?
A: (Laughs.) It's hard to think that far ahead.
