    2 really hot blind guys

  • British

    Actually Hugh was talked about in the media as a possible Bond before Daniel was cast but never recieved any contact from the producers.

    Its great to see two big Hollywood actors on stage together – I’d LOVE to see a play with even just one of them in it but to have two? Wow. I wish I was in NYC right now. Hugh and Daniel <3

  • so wrong!

    @dan’s the man: He was not auditioned for the role! Where did you read that? He was offered the role but he turned it down. He said that in that stage of his career, a Bond movie would not offer anything to him. I remember reading that in many articles on imdb, even in an interview on Men’s Vogue.

  • dan’s the man

    @so wrong!:

    I saw it in an interview he had with Alex Zane on sky 1 here in the UK
    back in Feb.

  • Terry

    @dan’s the man:
    He turned the role down. He was doing X-Men 2 at the time and didn´t want to be in two major franchises at the time. And as he says, you don´t need to be Bond to wear suits ;-) So, true. I just wish I could see the play. I don´t care much about reviews but I am glad perfromances are praised.

  • Guinness-I am sorry

    this is exactly what i was thinking!!! I am sorry because i don’t know you , or how he treats you , but damn, grow a spine and do something that makes you happy…but if he makes you happy…so be it… but you are prime target and i cant’ help it sometimes!!!

  • reviews

    Well the the reviews are in and they all basically say the same thing.

    Dan is far more believable than Hugh. You see Daniel knew what he was doing by growing that mustache, total transformation.

    Hugh looks bland.

    Satsuki looks ok, nice dress and smiling in a few pictures I have seen of her on other websites. Not totally miserable. One picture of her beaming on wireimage. Must be nerve wracking at these events too, must not forget that.

    She must be pissed though at still being referred to as the girlfriend that IF she is wife of course.

    It was all sunny smiles on last night’s red carpet for the record- breaking opening of “A Steady Rain” — thanks to the mega watt star power of two of Hol lywood’s hottest leading men.

    Stars Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman reportedly attracted the highest weekly gross for a nonmusical production on Broadway — but last night’s guests generated their own glitter.

    They included Jerry Seinfeld and his wife, Jessica; Matthew Broderick; Jeff Goldblum; Woody Harrelson; Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber; News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch; and Jackman’s wife, Deborra-Lee Furness.

    (no mention of stasuki…oh dear)

  • Terry

    I can´t imagine what more should Hugh do to convince people about his great acting. I saw the play and they were both great. The acting isn´t in the physical transformartion. That reviewers or even the Academy think that when you lose/take on weight or let grow a beard is doing a “great actor”. I think that actor who can play the character and still look like himself is much more difficult. Hugh could take on 100 kilos and they still wouldn´t praise him. I don´t understand since when is a good-look an obstacle. It´s not his fault and he is an amazing actor. I am glad that most of normal reviewers (theatrical websites) were able to understand the play. Some of the critics seemed to be bored like they just “had to” go to see the play.
    I personally really loved it. It was suprising, intense, dark and both actors were fabulous. I guess everybody likes something else but when someone wants to write a review he/she shouldn´t let his/her own prejudices (“two movie stars, blah, blah…”) to stand in the way. They are both stage actors, and some of these people don´t even know that but claim to understand the theater? Oh, come on…

  • You/Me

    Call me shallow but Daniel Craig and his gf look….not hot,lol. that p*rnstache of his makes him look slimy and his gf either got some really bad botox or she really, really did not want to be there. Give me Hugh and his wife any day over the other two.

  • Guinness-you said it!

    Terry, I would critique Hugh’s acting on his thread…so it is much more geared toward Dan on this thread…

    I did see the show, and i have reviewed it in other threads and you can read it there. Responding to your respectful post, you said it in the first sentence….”what does he have to do to convince people about his great acting…” yes, he does have to convince us because he isn’t convincing in his role here and I have stated numerous times what he needs to do to convince me of his great acting… “its not his fault he is an amazing actor’….. is not convincing…it is a matter of subjective reasoning…. he looks as if he is going to break into song…. this is not a “song-like” show. “but claim to understand the theater”….. um, is there a broadway secret that me as a layperson doesn’t understand about good raw talent that I don’t know about?
    And about the p0rn0stache grown…. it is just an extra added feature Dan doesn’t have to rip off his face after every show. he didn’t grow it to be better in this role-or to prove that he is better because he sacrificed his gorgeous lips for the role…. He would be a stunning actor with or without the ‘stache. Hugh is not a convincing Denny–he is a convincing vampire killer and freddy cruger…. touche.

  • Guinness-thanks
  • Sourpuss

    Hugh, Daniel and Deborra look great!! Same old, fugly sourpuss Satsmonkey. At least the gonk doesn’t have her raisin t*i*ts hanging out-the NYC crowd would laugh her out of the city.

  • re: 20

    No doubt they are married.

    =======================================================

    Well if it looks like a duck then it must be in your opinion then.
    Certainly looks like two rings. The band seems very thin.

    I often wonder why she stands on his right side now rather than left (she did before the engagement ring was on).
    Is it to hide the rings now? Her left hand is either behind his back or hidden with him holding it.

    Quite honestly, as she is still referred to as his girlfriend, I would be a little more than pissed off at that if I were Satsuki.
    Not one “friend” out there who will let it slip? Why are they keeping it such a secret? Security issues? Can’t be surely after her pea-hen display with the band. Possibly issues after that, then why wear the blooming thing at all then? Why try to hide it?

    That is the reason why I still have my lingering doubts about any marriage. Showing off to the press was certainly a deliberate ploy but still nothing found and no “sources” coming forward.

    Goodness, even the Royal Family have leaks within the Palace!

  • stella

    He can’t admit he’s married now even if he wanted to, not after all he said about his privacy.

  • pathetic

    if i were her i would let it slip yes. but to be married and to hide it from the world is ridiculous

    i think daniel is afraid for the world to see him as a married man?
    who knows and this couple have a very jumped up view of themselves.

    if it is a security issue heightened by a marriage then why is she even wearing it?

  • re: 22

    He can’t admit he’s married now even if he wanted to, not after all he said about his privacy.

    =======================================================

    Well you’re right but what about St Barths? Hardly private.

    Someone somewhere could let it slip. It doesn’t have to come out of Daniel’s own mouth does it?

  • stella

    Maybe whilest they don’t admit it keeps the fans/public interested in them, the are they or aren’t they game. Well it’s free publicity isn’t it??

  • re: 25

    Maybe whilest they don’t admit it keeps the fans/public interested in them, the are they or aren’t they game. Well it’s free publicity isn’t it??

    ======================================================

    Well that’s very sad then if that is true.
    Not much of a basis for a marriage either, afraid to let it slip anonymously because of the fear of interest going or the world/fans knowing? Why should they care?
    Correct me if I’m wrong but people who marry should do it for love and not be afraid of declaring it even if they are private people (which in my mind they are not), they simply are lapping this up.

    Pathetic.

  • Terry

    @Guinness-you said it!:
    Don´t say “us” but “convince you”. I read many reactions from people who are not his fans and those say he is great. I didn ´t mean to say that Daniel had to let grow the mustache to be convincing. It was more like a generalization. (look how many actors got Oscars just because they have changed themselves)
    Hugh is fantastic, I have seen him in ASR and I just don ´t understand why people think he would “break into the song”. He even isn´t a musical actor! He has never studied musical acting but drama acting. He was great in The Fountain and also in Erskineville Kings (a very similar role to this). I am not going to convince you to like him. Not all of us can like the same actors. I am a fan of both, Daniel and Hugh and I am saying they were both equally great. This play wouldn´t work if one of them failed. They didn´t and it´s great. I just don ´t understand some critics saying such stuff like “two movie stars trying to do theater” or “they should have taken shirts off”…or people speaking about how horribly one or anohter looks in the still photos. It´s a theater, not a magazine cover.

  • update

    Same old rubbish really isn’t it? I was told they (Dan and Satsuki) were asked but all marriage question were ignored. Not even one sly grin or nod.
    Really? Fancy that – anyway, no further in the game are we? Boo!!!
    According to one guy last night, Dan was quite tetchy and “on edge” – can’t blame the man, big event right ~ that’s the price of being such a superstar.
    I was reading above as to letting it “slip” to the press but, apart from some unfounded goose chases, no-one has. I guess quick easy money in this day and age doesn’t appeal but there again, maybe only a select few know.

    It will emerge slowly like a slow blackhead does on the skin ~ heaven I am abrasive today.

  • stella

    The funny thing is that no one would be asking the marriage questions to Daniel and Satsuki if she hadn’t have flashed her ring to the paps in the first place. So it’s their own fault they are being asked these questions.

  • update

    Believe me, the irony is not lost on the press and I’m sure it isn’t sitting well with the two masterminds themselves.
    Brilliant piece of evasive action by Satsuki ~ love to have heard her reasoning but there again, I’ve heard it all to last me three blinking lifetimes.
    Damage Control? ~ the SAS couldn’t patch this up.

  • satsuki

    ive noticed over the past year, the thread posts have become less and less.

    they used to to take up pages and pages of posts about satsuki but now, it’s like people have moved on and it’s fizzled.

  • oh my

    I hate to say this, but Hugh aged a lot over the past few months. In May he looked young, now he just looks like a guy who’s turning 41 soon.

  • Hello

    I think Sats will be in the Hello Magazine most elegant poll next week.

  • Haw

    Funny how neither of them looks like a cop from Chicago. Why can’t the producers find some American actors to play the roles so that the audience won’t be constantly distracted from the story by thinking how well or how poorly they did their Amrican accent? The point of the play is missed IMO, quite unnecessarily.

  • Thorm

    H Jackman used so much makeup on his face that his face was practically of the color orange. Not so obvious on DC.

  • lol

    love the way people try to take the topic off satsuki

  • oh my

    @lol:
    Sorry, but not everyone’s obsessed with Satsuki like you are. I don’t feel the need to comment about her every single time there’s news about her/Daniel Craig. It’s obvious that you’re just jealous that she’s with Daniel. I don’t think she’s ugly at all, and if you think she’s ugly, then we’re all ugly. I don’t live in the city, but I can say this – 95% of all the women I see in the city are uglier than Satsuki. 70% of them are fat, and 15% of them are as obese as an elephant.

    I’m betting you’re in the overweight category.

  • to lol

    hmmm the thread is about the play and the opening night, so it’s just the other way round…..people posting the same old rubbish like always…

  • lol to 37

    wrong! lol.

    i bet you’re in the vindictive category that think all fat people are ugly.

  • re: 38

    hmmm the thread is about the play and the opening night, so it’s just the other way round…..people posting the same old rubbish like always…
    ==========================================================

    Not really. Satsuki was there so she was part of it.

    Anyway, no thread police so surely any topic goes?

  • Dana

    @Thorm:
    It´s most likely that his make-up person had shaky hands. I love Hugh but he is kind of orange here. It´s not necessary, he looks fine without it. But still is sexy, no matter what :-) And Daniel looks very good, too. He has nice eyes.

  • ??

    I don’t see many Hugh fans on here today.

    Just about every review mentions how Daniel nails it in every which way and Hugh needs to shake it up and loose the Outback accent.

    Could it be that the newcomer to B/Way has outshone the Tony award winning old pro?

  • “their ladies”

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/09/30/a-steady-rain-opening-nig_n_304610.html

    After bonzo box office, ‘A Steady Rain’ opened on Broadway Tuesday night after weeks of previews. Stars Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman were feted by famous friends including the Seinfelds, the Murdochs, the Dillers, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Weinstein, Matthew Broderick, and even the teacher from ‘Glee.’

    They also had the support of their ladies, with Jackman’s wife Deborra-Lee Furness and Craig’s girlfriend Satsuki Mitchell.

  • wed mother

    Hugh is wearing too much makeup and looks like he might have had some face work done…. he looks botoxed, artificial and pulled. ick.

    Craig looks handsomely natural

  • Guinness

    Yo, Mendel…check the previous thread for relevant posts of mine…you workin hard or hardly workin for some fun….hopefully both!!!
    thx UPDATE for your input. i am confused…are you saying they are secretly married or not married or breaking up soon or not sure…but yes, i agree the topic has gone around the corral a few times…and yes, Dan did seem titchy—-in the online interview of the opening night, DTM posted Dan left the scene quicker than all 4 of them, but that is his nature…always moving…but his demeanor is spot on–it is almost as if he gives his entire body’s attention when he is being in the spotlight or acting. for example, his body (omg) is in constant motion (omg) when being interviewed but with attention and yet during the 90 minute play, he was strictly at ease, motionless, concentrating, beautifully sexy, watching, waiting for his lines, sexy, quiet & calm, sexy. So i forgot what i was saying. he is sexy and thx for the photos everyone!

    And i thought only Hugh can sing…………http://i368.photobucket.com/albums/oo129/iluvguinness/1010503am.jpg

    _________________________________________________

    um, i think there was only one mastermind behind this mess and that was satsuki. i can take a guess at her reasoning; either they did get married and satsuki wanted to the whole world to know or the ring-gate was her attempt to force daniel into getting married.

    i dont think she thought that the fall-out would be what it was. now we have satsuki being hidden away from the press and when she does show up her left hand is almost hidden from view. have to wonder why? as for the SAS you talk about; i’m american so i have no idea who or what you are talking about.

  • oh my

    I agree with you #44. I think Hugh had some work done because his face looks DIFFERENT! He’s not hot anymore.

  • Guinness-omg-swallowed!

    I would love to swallow….well, surry, it isn’t morning but damn, night time is just as fun! love the different media opinions ,especially on Dan’s moostache!!! I swear I wrote his lip was being swallowed, but JC I have read so much on this I probabably am guilty of plagerism–or spelling errors!! sleep. sleep. sleep. miles to go until i sleep!!
