Unbroken's Jack O'Connell Talks All About Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt in 'At Large' Magazine! (Exclusive)

Unbroken‘s Jack O’Connell and American Sniper‘s Luke Grimes both look so handsome on their individual covers of At Large magazine, provided exclusively to JustJared.com.

Here’s what guys had to share with the mag:

Jack, on screen testing for Angelina Jolie: “Angie put out a worldwide search requiring self taping. There were a couple scenes attached. I had me little cousin reading in lines and we made a scene out of it. Later, when we screen-tested it, Angie was kind enough to bring that little cousin along and put him in the screen test with me.”

Jack, on advice Brad Pitt gave him: “Brad Pitt handed me this f*cking awesome advice that I’m sticking to: Just be patient. Between wrapping Unbroken and it releasing, don’t tie myself to anything that might compromise me. Them words seem true. And his leading by example, by his actions, he doesn’t have to tell me too much. I just watch the fellow.”

Luke, on knowing he always wanted to be an actor: “I knew that I wanted to be an actor really, really young, like when I was five or six years old. I loved getting up in front of people – I wasn’t a shy little kid. Which is funny, because now I’m incredibly shy and I don’t like attention very much. But the church needed a drummer, and when you’re the pastor’s kid you kind of do whatever’s needed.”

Luke Grimes Exited 'True Blood' Because He Refused to Play Gay Character?

Luke Grimes‘ exit from the hit series True Blood left many confused last year and the decision was said to be made because of the “creative decision of the character.”

The 30-year-old actor’s role was recast with Bunheads actor Nathan Parsons and now that the season premiere has aired, we know a little about where the director of the character is heading.

Luke‘s character James is heading towards a romantic relationship with Lafayette (Nelson Ellis) and now Buzzfeed is saying that he “objected to the first few scripts he received, once it became clear that his character would become romantically involved with Lafayette. He countered that he would be willing to play the role if Lafayette were attracted to him, but not if the attraction was mutual. He also did not want to do any same-sex kissing or sex scenes. The writers were unwilling to change the scripts on his behalf.”

While HBO stands by their original statement about Luke‘s exit, the actor’s publicist is saying that it was a matter of scheduling and that he always had an out clause in his contract, which he used to make films like Fifty Shades of Grey, American Sniper, and The Shangri-La Suite. The rep says the exit “had nothing to do with storylines, which he had not been privy to at the time of that posting.”

Luke Grimes Exits 'True Blood' Final Season, Role to Be Recast

Luke Grimes has left the hit show True Blood and his role will be recast for the show’s seventh and final season, according to TV Line.

The 29-year-old actor joined the show last season as James, the soulful vamp-camp lover of Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll). He recently joined the cast of the movie Fifty Shades of Grey as the brother of Christian Grey.

“The role of James is being recast due to the creative direction of the character,” an HBO spokesperson said confirming the exit.

“He initially joined the show because he wanted to work with [his Forever co-star] Deborah Ann Woll,” an insider told the site. “But when he started reading the scripts for Season 7, he was disappointed to learn that they were going in a completely different direction with James.”
