9 Actors Who Went Too Far For Roles

As a former actress, I feel twitchy when I hear that an actor uses the Method. What that means essentially, is that the actor feels they need to immerse themselves in the role, on and off screen, in order to give a believable performance. This can be something relatively harmless like taking boxing lessons to prepare for the role of a boxer. Or doing something more intense, like dropping acid in preparation for an acid trip scene.

This is what Shia LeBeouf admitted to doing for his film “The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman.” He actually set aside a day to trip on acid to make sure he was prepared. Keep reading »

Facebook: The Movie?

First we heard that a Facebook status message was going to be turned into a movie. Now, a fictional documentary about Facebook itself is in the works. While it sounds like a snooze fest to us, apparently Columbia Pictures digs the idea and is working to bring the biopic about Mark Zuckerberg and his social networking site to the big screen. The script was written by “The West Wing” creator Aaron Sorkin and is based on the soon-to-be-released book by Ben Mezrich, The Accidental Billionares. Most importantly, Columbia Pictures is in advanced talks with David Fincher, of “Fight Club” and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” fame, to direct. And initial casting searches have Michael Cera and Shia LeBeouf neck-in-neck to play the Harvard dropout. Since anything David Fincher, Michel Cera, and Shia Lebeouf touches generally turns to gold, if Columbia Pictures can get these folks on-board, maybe this flick will turn out to be more than “Revenge of the Nerds: Part 56.” [CNet] Keep reading »
