Since we are so good at going off-topic in our Ewan-thread, we're starting our own here.

GLEAH stands for:
Gay-Loving Ewan and Hughanites

my god.
I've been looking for Ewan news to keep us slightly on topic for days now, and when we finally make a new thread, there is Ewan news and pictures explosion. xD
I'll just post them here so that you'll see tham.


Ruthe Stein
Friday, May 2, 2008

In person, Ewan McGregor looks even less as if he could be Colin Farrell's brother than he does onscreen. McGregor is tall but slight, with none of Farrell's potentially menacing bulk. But then Woody Allen, who chose Christopher Walken as Diane Keaton's brother in "Annie Hall" and Mia Farrow, Barbara Hershey and Dianne Wiest as sisters in "Hannah and Her Sisters," never puts much store in physical resemblance when casting sibling parts, relying instead on clever acting to make you believe his characters are related.

In "Cassandra's Dream," McGregor plays Ian, the emotionally stronger of two brothers. When their wealthy uncle asks them to murder a business foe, he does the dastardly deed and gets on with it, while brother Terry (Farrell) falls apart.

George Lucas directed McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi in three "Star Wars" movies, and Baz Luhrmann had him singing and dancing in "Moulin Rouge." But, like many actors, McGregor's dream had been to work with Allen, and he badgered his agent about it for years.

Here McGregor tells what happened with the call finally came and what it was like to be directed by Allen in "Cassandra's Dream," being released this month on DVD.


Q: Did Allen call you himself?

A: No. Your agent calls you up and says, "Woody Allen would like to meet you in New York." So off you go, and you meet him for, like, 45 seconds. He comes in and says, "I like your work, and maybe I have a part."

Q: Does he answer questions?

A: No. He just likes to see you in the flesh. I go away, and then they phone up and say, "Look, Woody wants you to read the script," and they send it around.

Q: What is it about Allen that makes actors take enormous pay cuts to work for him?

A: He's just one of the very few grand-master filmmakers there are in the world, really. There's' nobody who has the (nerve) to shoot the way he does. He only does wide shots. Occasionally, he'll come in for a close-up, but really only occasionally. So you get this wonderful naturalism because, as an actor, you've played these very long scenes in real time in front of a wide frame, and that's it. You do two or three takes, and then you're moving on to another scene. So it keeps things really real. And the dialogue is lovely. Woody is so (self-effacing) about it. He says, "They're just words I wrote. Don't say any of them if you don't want to." It's kind of like jazz music written in a way to work around it. But it's so beautifully written, I wouldn't want to change a word.

Q: Really? So you didn't change a single word in the script?

A: Maybe there was something I changed because it sounded less British than it might.

Q: "Cassandra's Dream" is the third movie in a row that Allen has made in England. Do you think he gets the whole British thing?

A: I do think so, because his subject matter is so universal - murder, guilt, deceit.

Q:[/b] You and Colin Farrell play working-class blokes. Do you think Allen understands the whole class-distinction thing in England?

A:[/b] I think he invented it to fit the film. I don't think he has to get it right because, within working-class society in London, there are hundreds and thousands of different families. They all live in different-looking houses. So he created this one family, and I believe in them. Terry is a mechanic, and Ian runs a restaurant. The boys have been brought up well. But because of their flaws, and because of their circumstances, they end up doing this terrible thing.

Q: Was there any question about which brother you would play?

A: No. That's the way I was offered it.

[/b]Q: It does seem as if Allen had you in mind for that role by naming the character Ian. Also, I was fascinated to read that you have an uncle who has been very influential in your life. Talk about him.

A:[/b] I really do. It's so funny (because of the "Cassandra" script). He never asked me to kill anyone, honest. But he was my inspiration to go into acting. I mean, because we both come from very small towns in Scotland, and I suppose the possibility of becoming a successful working actor might not have seemed plausible (to anyone) except for my uncle, who had done it. He paved the way for me. In my mind, it became possible. So I just followed it. I wanted to be like him very much.

Q: By another coincidence, you have a brother named Colin.

A: Yes, I do. He's older and lives in Scotland, and I live in London, so we don't see as much of each other as we would like.

Q: Did you draw on this relationship in creating your character?

A: I guess I did. I'm not really aware of what I'm drawing on, but it's a lot of subconscious stuff, so I'm sure I must have done that.

Q: Ian and Terry are both very sympathetic characters. Was that in the script?

A: Yes. Woody always talked about them being nice guys. I thought that was the way to go with it. This terrible thing collides into their world and f- them up.

Q: When you were growing up, did you long for success you thought was above your station?

A: No, because my drive never was to be rich or have this car or that car. It was always to be an actor, and everything about my life was making that happen, really from the age of 9 onward. Ian just wants to be rich and wants the benefits of money. He wants a nice house and a great life. But he wants someone else's life.

Q: I've always heard that Allen gives hardly any direction. Did you find that to be true?

A: No. The change may have come from within him, but he directs more than he used to. I found his directions really specific. I'd heard that he doesn't call you by your name, and none of that proved to be the case with us. I found him to be really hands-on, especially compared with directors who really do leave you alone.

Q: Now that you got your wish to be in an Allen movie, do you wish it had been a comedy?

A: No. I liked the heightened drama in the story when the brothers are asked to do something terrible. You can't do that in a comedy.





---------------------------------------

Oh no! Scottish scruff Ewan McGregor has not only turned gay on his female fans but ginger as well!

But don't worry, the Trainspotting actor and co-star Jim Carrey were just playing out their roles on a 'romantic' boat trip on the set of new film, 'I Love You Phillip Morris'.

The pair play a pair of gay cellmates, who fall in love in a new film based on the true story of a Texan convict.

In this scene, the two stars are filmed during a fumbling man on man moment aboard their dinghy, bobbing off Florida Keys.

Carrey was left with his legs sprawled in the air and his pants around his ankles, as McGregor looks on suspiciously.

It's a word on it's own by now.

I like it, only thing I can see is that the middle picture looks a little squashed, but the blend is really good.


For the most part, I'm horrified by the idea of people covering Depeche Mode, but they pulled it off.
They made it their own, kinda, and I just really like the way it sounds stripped down.
It just floats away so nicely. ^^
And it's one of my favourite songs, so yay for them not butchering it. Like Finger Eleven did with Walking In My Shoes xD
(oh, and don't be thrown off by Billy Corgan's voice, it'll probably grow on you. xD)

I hate when someone covers a song I love.  Can I give you a Michael example?

I can imagine some pretty horrible covers of his songs.


hm. If I admit that me favourite song by The Used is called Slit Your Own Throat, does that make me insane?
