Matthew Fox's Vantage Point

Matthew Fox arrives at Roissy Charles de Gaulles airport in Paris, France on Sunday.

Fox, 41, is in town to promote the Pete Travis-directed thriller Vantage Point, out Feb. 22. The film’s tagline is: “8 Strangers. 8 Points of View. 1 Truth.”

Vantage Point synopsis: Thomas Barnes (Dennis Quaid) and Kent Taylor (Fox) are two Secret Service agents assigned to protect President Ashton (William Hurt) at a landmark summit on the global war on terror. When President Ashton is shot moments after his arrival in Salamanca, Spain, chaos ensues and disparate lives collide. In the crowd is Howard Lewis (Forest Whitaker), an American tourist videotaping the historic event to show his kids when he returns home. Also there is Rex (Sigourney Weaver), an American TV news producer who is reporting on the conference. It’s only as we follow each person’s perspective of the same 15 minutes prior to and immediately after the shooting that the terrifying truth behind the assassination attempt is revealed.

While doing press for Vantage Point, Fox mentioned how he loves living in Hawaii: “I really don’t like to get the whole paparazzi thing just in my daily life – photographs of my kids and that type of thing – which happens, but it’s very rare. I think if I was living in Los Angeles it would be more difficult for me, so Hawaii has been good in that respect. There’s not a lot of paparazzi that want to do the 2500 mile trek into the South Pacific to get a picture of me walking on the beach. [laughs]”

Matthew Fox: Lost For Humor

Lost star Matthew Fox, aka Dr. Jack Shephard, hangs out with two female friends Thursday on a balcony in Sydney, Australia. He’s in town to promote the third season of Lost and his new movie Vantage Point.

He was recently asked about being name-dropped in the comedy Knocked Up. In the movie, Katherine Heigl plays a TV journalist named Alison Scott, who tells her boyfriend Ben Stone (played by Seth Rogen) that she is interviewing Fox.

Stone: Matthew Fox from Lost?

Scott: Yeah.

Stone: You know what’s interesting about him?

Scott: What?

Stone: Nothing.

Fox‘s humorless response to the movie reference was: “I couldn’t care less. That doesn’t have any effect whatsoever. I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about s— like that.”

But Fox is excited about getting back to filming Lost: “I love the story of Lost and I also would like a bit more certainty in my life. I’d like to see something happen (with the strike) so I can plan working on Lost, some other projects and also life outside of work.”

The survivors of Oceanic Air’s Flight 815 return in the Season 4 premiere in ONE WEEK — Thursday, Jan 31, @ 9PM ET/PT on ABC.

Matthew Fox Spills Season 4 Secrets


Lost star Matthew Fox dishes the dirt on the upcoming four season of this hit ABC show in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly (on newsstands Monday).

On the 8th episode of Lost this season: “There’s going to be some huge mind-blowing (stuff). Jack gets people off that island, [and] suddenly he and the other people are very well known— it becomes this massive story because everybody thought that every person on this plane was lost…. Who are they? What is everybody else doing? Jack’s mission was to get all of them off. It’s the overriding force behind him. So, the fact that he ends up getting off and doesn’t get that accomplished—I’m very curious to find out how that all goes down…. If I start giving you words about what I think it’s really about, I’m going to be honing in on some stuff that I’m not sure I’m authorized to talk about. A truck might pull up and a bunch of dudes in suits get out and mow us down with Uzis.”

On this season dealing with time travel and other supernatural elements: Really fascinating stuff. Last year, we find out Jack and Kate are off the island. How the f— did that happen? And why does he want to go back? In answering those questions, you have to start addressing the bigger, epic scope of the show. In doing that, you’re going to get into questions about the show that the audience is just dying to start finding out. What is this island? Where is this island? When is this island?

'Speed Racer' Movie Stills

The very first Speed Racer movie stills have been released courtesy of USA Today.

Speed is a live action cartoon and is a much-anticipated adaptation by the Wachowski brothers (The Matrix trilogy, V for Vendetta).

“The effects are beyond belief,” says producer Joel Silver. “We called it ‘car fu,’ because it was like kung fu with the cars. We couldn’t have made this movie until right now… It obviously has a present-day aesthetic to it but it’s still a great yarn about family and not selling out. That’s an important message to the (Wachowskis) and why we all connected to the show.”

Emile Hirsch as Speed Racer, Christina Ricci as Trixie (Speed’s girlfriend), John Goodman as Pops Racer, Susan Sarandon as Mom Racer, Matthew Fox as Racer X (Speed’s rival) and Korean pop star Rain as rookie racer Taejo Togokhan.

Speed Racer drives into theaters nationwide on May 9th, 2008. The trailer runs tonight on Entertainment Tonight. More movie stills inside…More Here! »

Matthew Fox: Columbia College Speech


Lost star Matthew Fox returns to Low Plaza at his Alma Mater on Tuesday to deliver the keynote address during Columbia College Class Day at Columbia University.

(You can watch the video feed here but you need to download Real Player.)

Fox, 40, introduced himself and joked that while Harvard got Bill Gates, “The only difference is I actually graduated.”

“You may have an idea where you want to be in 20 years and some of you will get there. But if you do, I guarantee you won’t have let yourself take chances. 18 years ago sitting in these seats, as hung over as I was, I remember a sense of accomplishment & a sense of fear. In defining the future for yourselves, the safest choice may not be the best choice.”

Fox concluded: “Live for your own passion, not the aspirations or expectations others have for you. Trade fear for trust. Allow yourself to find that area either of your excellence or your excitement that motivates you to apply the same focus and energy that got you through Columbia. Whatever that area is, there is value in it simply because it is the area of your passion.

“Finally and most importantly, do not apologize. One of the most beautiful things you can see is that moment of which a person stops apologizing for who they are and what they want to do and who they want to be and they drop being themselves. That’s it, that’s all the wisdom I’ve got to offer.

“As of tomorrow you are the author of your own life. I’m excited about what I get to do. I get to tell stories but equally as exciting as that to me is the story each one of you is yet to write. The first chapter is coming to a close, where the story goes from here is up to you. Congratulations class of 2007!”

Fox, who received a standing ovation at the end of his speech, graduated with a B.A. in economics (CC’89) and played wide receiver on the Lions’ varsity football team.

UPDATE: Here’s the actual video of Matthew Fox‘s speech thanks to JJ reader Johanna! The recording was taken from one of the side tents. Foxy is quite charismatic and more importantly, funny! Great Class Day speaker…

Fox even addressed the seniors’ reactions published in the Columbia Spectator. “I’ve never heard of this guy. The years before got a Pulitzer Prize-winner and a potential presidential candidate,” Julia Kite, CC ’07, said. “I suppose that after what happened last year, they wanted someone less controversial.” Watch the video below!
