HOLLYWOOD Harry Potter beauty, Emma Watson, is in suspense like everyone else about which wizard characters will actually make it to the end of J.K. Rowlings final novel, and she tells Jeanne Wolf that shes on the fence about the fate of her character, Hermione Granger. Watson says, Some hackers are claiming that Hermione is going to die, and Im like, No, no, shes meant to be with Ron [Rupert Grint]. But I guess from an acting standpoint, it would be good to have a death scene.
HOLLYWOOD Christian Bale gets down and dirty for his role as a prisoner of war in the upcoming film Rescue Dawn, but the actor knew what he was getting into as soon as he met with director Werner Herzog to discuss the film. Bale tells Jeanne Wolf, During the first five minutes I met Werner he said to me, How do you feel about swimming in snake-infested waters? How do you feel about sleeping in the jungle all night and being covered by leeches? How do you feel about dangerous, weird spiders? How do you feel about biting the head off of a snake? I quickly figured out this wasnt a comedy.
HOLLYWOOD Actor Steve Buscemi finally gets his break as a leading man who gets to kiss the sexy Sienna Miller in his upcoming film Interview, and he tells Jeanne Wolf that playing a romantic role was a bit of a stretch for him. Buscemi explains, It was such a departure from the low-life scums Ive played, that people seem to remember me for it. I think it has to do with the way I look. I have bad teeth and a skinny face, and I look like Im on drugs. No movie magic is going to change that.
HOLLYWOOD A-lister Don Cheadle is slated to play his long-time idol, jazz legend Miles Davis, in an upcoming biopic of his life, and Cheadle tells Jeanne Wolf that he learned the ins and outs of Davis strong character while researching for the role. Cheadle says, Youd have to take everything he said with a grain of salt. Miles would tell a long story, and someone would go, Thats amazing. Did that really happen? Hed reply, I dont f■■■ing know. You figure it out. He wasnt interested in what you thought about him. He was like, Im about the music. Deal with that.
HOLLYWOOD 24 starlet Elisha Cuthbert is starring in the ultra-gory, torture-horror flick Captivity, and in real life, she likes watching guys get tortured playing hockey, that is. The blonde beauty tells Jeanne Wolf that growing up in Canada and even writing a blog for the National Hockey League has made her a huge fan of the rough sport. Cuthbert says, Not only does my brother play hockey, but my mom does too. Im always ready with a little pep talk for my favorite Kings players like, Youre nose doesnt look that bad dude, the girls wont notice, and Who needs that tooth anyway? Just kidding.
