Marisa Tomei Is Not Just a Naked Lady

See? She’s wearing clothes.

“I was trying to convince Ed [Zwick] to try and slip in a dance sequence somewhere, but it just really didn’t work out.” Jamie Bell on why there’s no dance number in Defiance [MoviesOnline]

“Our version [of the Cleopatra story] will be like an Elvis musical in 3D. It’s a total rock ’n’ roll, 1966 aesthetic - like Viva Las Vegas meets Tommy.” Steven Soderbergh on why his upcoming musical Cleo will be insane [NYP]

“When you first hear the title, Spider-Man, The Musical, you think, ‘Oh what’s that gonna be like?’ The deal was that a man would never sing in spandex on stage, so, rest assured, Spider-Man will never sing in tights, only as Peter Parker.” Evan Rachel Wood assuages fanboy fears of seeing Spider-Man sing on stage [WENN via PR-Inside]

“I couldn’t think of anyone who was more right for this character than I was, at least on the surface of it. Because of the history of the characters I’ve played — (Million Dollar Baby’s) Frankie Dunn or (Heartbreak Ridge’s) Gunnery Sergeant Highway — this one sort of sums it all up, one old bigot and his family.” Clint Eastwood on acting in Gran Torino [MCT via PopMatters]
