Thanks for the link. Lainey didn’t like TGWTDT so much, so she appraised critically it. I supposed she disliked Fincher cuz he pointed out some problems regarding Scarjo. Maybe she found the BAFTA’s list out, so she changed her mind A BIT.
Hi, RC2012
How’s it going? :)

I really wish Daniel plays with Carey together sometime!!
Carey Mulligan Says She Went Through Three Rounds Of Auditions For ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’
http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplaylist/carey-mulligan-says-she-went-through-three-rounds-of-auditions-for-the-girl-with-the-dragon-tattoo
While the movie is out, and Rooney Mara has proven to be the perfect choice for Lisbeth Salander, the story of what could have been is alwasy intriguing. As has been well documented already, “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” wen through a lengthy, and very publicized casting process and in the final days, Sarah Snook, Sophie Lowe and Léa Seydoux were said to be the final candidates, with a mix of established and lesser known names like Ellen Page, Natalie Portman, Emma Watson, Mia Wasikowska, Emily Browning and Katie Jarvis also in the running. Last fall, David Fincher said that Scarlett Johansson gave a great audition but proved to be too sexy for the somewhat androgynous part. Also being considered was “Drive” and “Shame” star Carey Mulligan, and she reveals she was called back more than once to try out for the part.
“I auditioned three times for ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,’ ” Mulligan told Little White Lies in a recent interview. She went on to explain that Fincher’s exacting methods and pursuit of what he wants, isn’t just restricted to the film set. She also hoped that landing the role would allow to her break out of being offered parts that mirrored her youthful turn in her breakout film, “An Education.”

“The first audition I did, I don’t think I was sort of in his mind for it. So the first audition I did for the casting director without him. And then the second was with him and the third one was with him. He is very specific. He tells you exactly what he wants you to do. He’s very kind. I was intimidated, but he was very…He’s very direct. I like people who are direct,” Mulligan explained. “I just sort of went all out for it because I did feel a little bit stuck in sort of being young looking or playing these parts. And I’d done so much costume drama and all these things kept on presenting themselves as opportunities and I just thought, ‘If I could do that… ha!’ And also to work with him and to work with Daniel Craig was an amazing opportunity. It was such a great character. But he was just very, yeah, very specific, very direct, very honest and quite brief – with me, at least. His reputation of course is that he takes, like, 45 takes so him being brief with me was probably an indication that I wasn’t going to get the job. But that’s okay.”

A fascinating peek behind the curtain, from an actress who appears to be quite grounded. The rest of the interview is fascinating and worth clicking over there for, particularly for Mulligan’s thoughts on the “one for them, one for me” strategy (she doesn’t particularly buy into that notion), how her U.K. agents tend to take more risks in finding her roles the responsibility women have in creating their opportunities in the industry.

At any rate, though she lost out on ‘Dragon Tattoo,’ Mulligan has an envoius 2012 ahead of her with roles in two of the most anticipated films of the year: the Coen Brothers’ “Inside Llewyn Davis” and Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby.”

“But I’m afraid he mixes me up with my mom…”

The Mother 2 ? ;)

“Oh… but according to the books, Monica has curled-blond short hair, and blue eyes. Emma, 43 years old, may be too old to play Monica, 36 years old, tho…”

Hahaha, yes, but the book may say one thing, my imagination another…
Emma could easily pass for a 36 year old (and they might just not mention Monica’s age in the film…)

“I don’t know for sure. But I don’t want to know it. Because what else would this information do apart from bother me? I’d rather not know it”

That’s strange, knowing he’s so protective of his privacy. I thought he would definitely pursue the issue if he had an inkling his phone had been hacked…

“My job is simple I don’t have go coal mining or anything,” he said. “I go to work and act and it is just so much fun! I’m allowed to do what I always wanted to do. I work with incredible intelligent and creative people. What’s hard with that?”

Gotta love Dan!!!

“I can’t make out why they don’t put his knit on sale. I’m sure it makes a big hit!!”

Agreed! Those clothes are fabulous!

to LameyConcedes

“Maybe she can find someone else to hate this year.”

Doesn’t seem likely, with calling Dan ‘Daniel Cranky Pants Craig’ and not even showing a pic of him in the article (while featuring Fincher and Rooney)… ;)

@Mendel:
”not even showing a pic of him in the article (while featuring Fincher and Rooney)… ;)”
Well, now that you say it, that’s true. But those photos were taken at the Roma premiere. Daniel didn’t attend it.

LOL!! Listen to it!! :)

(VIDEO) James Bond Theme With Lyrics: Funny Video Explains 007
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/10/james-bond-theme-with-lyrics-funny-video_n_1197424.html
Sure, James Bond saves the day, but does that give him a free ride to do whatever he pleases?

Since Sean Connery first donned the tux, 007 has been famous for three things: infiltrating the organizations of international criminals and taking them down; sleeping with lots of women; and getting really, really drunk. Oh, he also causes tons of destruction and makes snide comments left and right. It’s been a delightful ride for the past 50 years, and there are millions of men who would kill to be him, but, well, his habits kind of make him a jerk, right?

YouTubers Rummy & Kormers tackle that issue in this new video, which lays the truth out to the tune of the famed Bond theme. (Don’t tell Daniel Craig about this; he tends to punch really, really hard).

Just don’t tell Daniel Craig about this; he tends to punch really, really hard. In fact, don’t tell Connery, either — he probably can still pack a wallop. Also it’s a tiny bit NSFW.

I realized something about Daniel Craig
http://juliarachelbarrett.net/2012/01/i-realized-something-about-daniel-craig/
He was cast in the first Lara Croft movie with Angelina Jolie. I didn’t even realize he was in Elizabeth with Cate Blanchette. Wow. Look at him now. He’s on my list of top ten actors. Might even be my number one.

What I find most interesting about Daniel Craig is the progression of a career. A real career. Not an add water get a giant dinosaur sponge type insta-celebrity career like say… the now nearly invisible Paris Hilton. You know, being famous for being famous. Although I have to admit I really enjoyed the Paris for President video during the last election. That was funny.

Writing is kind of like that. A career progresses in increments, yet the occasional author jumps to the front of the line, sometimes for very good reasons, sometimes the reasons aren’t readily apparent.

This is life, boys and girls. Some interesting discussions this week about authors, reviews and how we behave, or don’t.
Kinda feel like we can’t win for losin’ so we might as well take a lesson from Paris and laugh at ourselves.

Where I’ve Been
http://www.ryanairmag.com/story/where-ive-been/1095/1/
Daniel Craig
“WHEN I TRAVEL I ALWAYS TAKE A PILE of books, because I never know what I want to read – which is kind of bad for travelling because they’re so heavy. I’ve got Bose [noise- reducing] headphones. They are an old pair and they are literally taped up, but they are a great investment. I kind of got my money back on those straight away. You do one flight with those, and you can switch yourself off.
“Just being in Sweden is one of the biggest, best things. Filming in Sweden, working with Swedish people and eating in Swedish restaurants, just soaking up and pretending to be Swedish. I’m from the UK and there are traditions that we kind of share: it gets dark in the winter and we like the darker side of life. We like good drink. We enjoy discussing our depression! There’s also a very strong storytelling tradition. Stieg Larsson’s books deal with this dark side of life.
“In Stockholm the food’s good and the nightlife’s good – especially on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. It keeps you up all night until 3 o’clock in the morning. It’s banging. The Venice of the north! It’s beautiful. I highly recommend people to go there and visit in their millions.
“I loved the archipelago where we were filming [The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo], and a place called Katrineholm. It’s just beautiful, stunning countryside. I saw a tiny piece of it – it’s huge. There’s about four Swedes who live there, as far as I could make out. Four Swedes and about 20 million square miles up there. I think that was the ratio. It’s an amazing place.
“My character in the film, Mikael Blomkvist, is weak. He’s weak as a man; he’s weak as a human being. But he admits he is and he’s not kidding anybody. He’s not pretending to be anything that he’s not. In that sense, he is strong, he’s honest about that. He’s straightforward. He doesn’t lie. I did get told in Sweden that’s the way you chat people up, but I’ve never tried it out. ‘Do you want to do this, or what?’”
THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO IS IN CINEMAS FROM 21 DECEMBER.

“LOL!! Listen to it!! :) ”

Brilliant!

“I didn’t even realize he was in Elizabeth with Cate Blanchette. Wow.”

Neither did I, but I do remember the role he played – the rather menacing assassin with the striking blue eyes:

“What I find most interesting about Daniel Craig is the progression of a career. A real career. Not an add water get a giant dinosaur sponge type insta-celebrity career”

A real career, yes! He worked hard for it (although he’d probably say that acting is not as hard as working in a coal mine, and he is having a lot of fun… ;)

“I’m from the UK and there are traditions that we kind of share: it gets dark in the winter and we like the darker side of life. We like good drink. We enjoy discussing our depression! There’s also a very strong storytelling tradition.”

Hahahaha, how true!

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz are close to ending their aggressive apartment search. The Hollywood power couple, who have been scouring downtown for a new home after getting married in June, are set to buy a three-bedroom, three-bathroom condo at 20-26 Greene St. in SoHo. The 4,350-square-foot apartment was listed at $11.5 million and taken off the market last week.
In addition to 2,000 square feet of outdoor space, Craig, now appearing in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and working on the next James Bond film, and the Oscar-winning Weisz might appreciate the apartment’s media room with a woodburning fireplace. Another dramatic entertaining space is the private roof garden with its own kitchen.
Brokers involved in the deal declined to comment.

Hi, Mendel
I know how Cate Blanchette felt. When Daniel came over from the other side, I thought so. “Who are you? (Damn!! Who is this sexy man?)” lol
Love these FUNNY captions!

Hi, Amy
Wow, she’s a great storyteller. Daniel was at the mercy of her. lol

Is this true? Or the Phil’s press made up story? If it’s true, why did Daniel want to see Rachel that much? :)

‘James Bond’ was also in PH: source

(QUOTE)
MANILA, Philippines – A source of ABS-CBN News has confirmed that actor Daniel Craig, the husband of “Bourne Legacy” lead actress Rachel Weisz, was also here in the country.

The source said he saw the James Bond actor at around 10 a.m. on Wednesday but he allegedly declined to have a picture taken with him so people wouldn’t know that he’s also in the Philippines.

The source also said that he heard Weisz call Craig “hun.”

Reports said Craig already left the Philippines last night.

Craig is famous for being the sixth actor to portray British spy James Bond in the highly successful movie franchise.

to Fio

it would make perfect sense for Daniel to go the Philippines to See Rachel. he’s obviously not required to be on the set of Bond 23 now so why shouldn’t he be with his wife.

Bourne Legacy’ movie starts filming in the heart of Manila
By: Marinel R. Cruz
Philippine Daily Inquirer
January 11, 2012 | 5:54 pm
MANILA, Philippines—Venus Reinoso, 22, said she felt the shivers after seeing Academy Award-winning actress Rachel Weisz in the flesh Wednesday morning, right in the middle of the San Andres Public Market in Malate.
The British actress arrived in Manila on Sunday night for the filming of the Hollywood spy-thriller “The Bourne Legacy.” Weisz, dressed in a black tank top and blue jeans, walked a total of seven minutes from her van that was parked at the nearby San Andres Complex to the actors’ holding area in Barangay 705. She later met up with director Tony Gilroy, who was in a white button-down shirt and denim pants.
“Rachel said she couldn’t believe people in the Philippines know her,” Reinoso said in Filipino. “Is she kidding? I’m her No. 1 fan.”
Reinoso, who traveled all the way from Quezon City, said Weisz was roughly 5-foot-eight tall and was “really really beautiful in person.” Reinoso added that she was about to take pictures of the actress with her camera phone when a production staff member stopped her.
Wednesday was the first of a 45-day shoot in the Philippines. Filming will also take place in the Navotas fish port, Marikina public market, Jones Bridge, Ramon Magsaysay Boulevard, Ayala Avenue and Pasay-Taft Rotonda. Some parts will be shot in scenic spots in El Nido, Palawan.
Manila will serve as the setting for the film’s climax or the last 20 to 25 minutes. In a previous interview, Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) chair Briccio Santos said Manila would be part of the story. “What I know is that Bourne’s group comes here in search of a rare medication and some forces try to stop them,” he explained.
During Wednesdays shoot, Weisz was made to buy medicine from a local drug store located on Purok (zone) Singko, then a chase ensued all the way to a chapel on Asuncion Street, according to source who requested anonymity.
In a nearby set, a “major actor,” believed to be Academy Award-nominee Jeremy Renner (“The Hurtlocker”), rehearsed his jump from a three-story building to a two-story house. Actual filming of the scene happens on Thursday, according to the source.
Renner plays the leading man, agent Aaron Cross, in this fourth installment of the popular spy-thriller flick. Several Filipino actors were tapped to play important roles, too.
Toteng Picados, who has been living in the area for six years now, claimed he saw Renner on Monday. “It’s possible that he wanted to see for himself how far the jump would be,” Picados said in Filipino.
When the Philippine Daily Inquirer called up Philippine producer Lope “Jun” Juban Jr. to verify the information, he said this was “highly unlikely. (Picados) could have just seen one of the American stuntmen rehearsing.”
“I’m very excited about this,” Picados shared. “I’ve been awake as early as 6 a.m. I’m not at all bothered by the chaos. I’m used to the noise and because I live close to the public market.”
Bike shop owner Sonia Prieto, however, was disgruntled. She said her business was affected by the road closure around the public market. “My clients are complaining. Nahihirapan silang pumasok (They’re having a hard time entering the area.) There’s also a big truck blocking the front of my store. I heard that this would go on for four more days,” she said.
Parked on Leveriza Street were 10 trailer trucks, some marked with “sound and video,” “grip,” “lighting and effects” and “props.” On stand by were an ambulance, an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) and a truck carrying power generators.
Twenty five personnel from the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) were deployed in the area since 4 a.m. “There’s still no word from our office as to when we could leave and go home,” MMDA employee Rogelio Nuiz told the Inquirer at noon.
Personnel from the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the film’s local producer, Philippine Film Studio Inc. (PFSI), took charge of crowd control.
“The first day of filming went well. They were mostly day scenes and interior shots,” said Juban, adding that today’s shoot would be “more or less in the same area. There would be exterior shots, too.”

Why did you post the article? The article didnt prove Daniel was in the Philippines though we already knew Rachel has been in the Phils.

@Fio:
“why did Daniel want to see Rachel that much? :)”
Because his wife is Rachel Weisz. Isn’t this a good enough reason? :)

Rachel has just sold her old house at $3.4 million, with the buyer being Darren.

Daniel Craig And Rachel Weisz Buy 11M Home

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz are splashing out $11.5 million on a three bedroom apartment in New York.
Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz are splashing out $11.5 million on a new home.
The couple – who married in a surprise ceremony last June – are set to buy a three-bedroom, three-bathroom apartment in New York’s SoHo district.
The 4,350 square foot property boasts an additional 2,000 square feet of outdoor space – including a private roof garden with its own kitchen – and facilities including a media room with a woodburning fireplace, the New York Post newspaper reports.
Meanwhile, city records show that Rachel has just sold her old house in the city – with the buyer being her former partner, director Darren Aronofsky.
The ‘Wrestler’ filmmaker – who has a five-year-old son, Henry, with Rachel – paid $2.52 million for the five-storey townhouse.
The sum is considerably less than the $3.4 million the former couple paid for the 11.5 room property in 2005 and the house is said to be worth an estimated 3-4 times more than what Darren has just paid.
Though it is unclear how many bedrooms the house has, it also boasts a terrace off three second-floor kitchen, a double parlour, and a garden.

OSCARS: Producer Scott Rudin Talks Critics Awards, Salander, His ‘Jeopardy’ Discovery And Why A Non-Baseball Fan Relates To ‘Moneyball’

(QUOTE)
AWARDSLINE: What made Daniel Craig right guy to play Mikael Blomkvist? An actor known for action takes a backseat in that department to Salander.
RUDIN: He’s the guy that can do anything. He has integrity and smarts and sex and righteousness. He’s exactly the thing you want in a movie star. And, in a way, he accommodates to the presence of Lisbeth in the most beautiful, effortless way. I mean, she comes into the movie and sort of like inhales everything around her and he just sort of exists next to her in the most fantastic, stylish, witty way. He’s totally confident in every single move he’s got in the story and she’s like this dervish around him. He’s the essence and stillness and I think it’s really beautiful to watch.

I was misreading it. Rachel sold her old house at $2.52M.
Hi, susan
I thought Daniel was filming Skyfall in UK, so I wonder if he has got time to see Rachel. And Daniel was all the time with Rachel until last week, nevertheless he wanted to see Rachel soon. I mean, he seems to want to stay close to Rachel at all times, so he still looks like a lovesick man! lol
Hi, Amy
Yeah, it makes perfectly sense :)

Skyfall Gold!
Sneak peek at Daniel Craig as Bond
http://www.empireonline.com/news/story.asp?NID=32874
2012 sees the Golden Jubilee of a true British icon – someone who, for 50 years, has ruled hearts and minds, and become a one-person monument in the process. We have managed to get our hands on this stunning shot of Daniel Craig as James Bond taken during filming of Skyfall at the London Four Seasons recently.

With Craig and director Sam Mendes promising something on an even bigger and more emotional canvas than ever before, expect great things from Bond 23…

Skyfall also stars Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Albert Finney, Bérénice Marlohe, Naomie Harris, Helen McCrory and Javier Bardem. It will hit cinemas on October 26, 2012.

@Fio: I came on to post that, thanks Fio! It’s almost not human. AND. I. LOVE. IT. Rachel is a lucky girl!!!
