"The Debt" Movie Review! How Many Kisses Does Sam Worthington Get? 


To watch my interviews with:

Sam Worthington, and you should, click here

Jessica Chastain, click here

Director John Madden, click here

Here’s more info on “The Debt” from Yahoo:

In 1997, shocking news reaches retired Mossad secret agents Rachel and Stefan about their former colleague David. All three have been venerated for decades by their country because of the mission that they undertook back in 1966, when the trio tracked down Nazi war criminal Vogel in East Berlin. At great risk, and at considerable personal cost, the team's mission was accomplished - or was it? The suspense builds in and across two different time periods, with startling action and surprising revelations.

Hot for Teacher! Johnny Depp's "21 Jump Street" Cameo Revealed! 


Johnny Depp rose to fame in the 1980s as a teenage heartthrob in the hit TV show "21 Jump Street." With the film version now in production, it is nice to hear that Depp has not forgotten what made him a big star.

The actor is set to make a cameo as a teacher! According to Life & Style Magazine, "Johnny makes a cameo as a teacher and he bumps into his 'old' character in the halls of the high school."

Aw...

Depp, of course, starred in the series as the lead detective Tom Hanson. It's interesting to note that on the pilot episode of the show, Jeff Yagher played the character but was replaced in the next episode by Depp. I wonder whatever happened to Yagher.

Jonah Hill co-wrote the script of the movie version and is also one of the stars. He promises that his take on "21 Jump Street" will appeal to the adult crowd. Is he saying that this film will be smart? Hill says, "It's an "R-rated, insane, 'Bad Boys'-meets-John Hughes type movie. We're not even spoofing the [original], it's not strictly comedic, either. We're doing a full-on action movie, blowing s--- up."

So will Depp's co-stars in the show also make cameo appearances? Will Holly Robinson Peete (Judy Hoffs), Dustin Nguyen (Harry Truman Loki), and Peter DeLuise (Doug Penhall) bump into their old characters too?

We'll find out when "21 Jump Street" hits theaters March of 2012.

Sam Worthington Loves Me After All These Years! Check Out My Fun Interview with the Actor for His Fantastic Film, "The Debt!" 


It’s no secret that I love Sam Worthington! Why? Because he’s sweet, charming, and he reads my blog! When I met him for “Terminator Salvation” two years ago, he surprised the heck out of me by pronouncing that he goes to my website. My little old website is being visited by Mr. Sam! (Check out my interview with the Worthington for "Terminator Salvation" right here, compare and contrast!)

So two years later, after the huge hits “Avatar” and “Clash of the Titans,” Sam and I are back in each other’s arms for the great film “The Debt.” I was mesmerized by this edge-of-your-seat thriller, and was very impressed with Worthington’s performance as David Peretz, the younger Mossad agent played by Ciaran Hinds decades later! Check out “The Debt” when it opens Aug. 31st.

No 3D glasses required!

In this interview, we talked about:

*** His interest in working with John Madden, how the director enticed him to work in the film?
*** Was he familiar with the original Israeli film “Ha-Hov” which “The Debt” was based on?
*** The qualities he brings to the film – machismo and vulnerability!
*** How he worked with Ciaran Hinds for their character’s thread of continuity
*** Working on the set
*** The safe house location as another character in the film
*** It’s fun to watch a Sam Worthington movie without putting on 3D glasses!
*** His scruffy, gruff look – what the heck? He’s saying buh-bye to the whole Metrosexual look
*** Now the fun part – does he still love me after all these years?

My Fun Interview with Jessica Chastain for "The Debt!" I LOVE HER!!!!!! 


I love Jessica Chastain, she was sweet and down-to-earth in person! And truth be told, she was my favorite among the cast of “The Debt.” She plays the younger Rachel Singer and the great Helen Mirren is her character’s older version. Watch the film on August 31st for Chastain’s subdued yet emotionally rich performance! Hats off to this fine, fine actress!

In this interview, we talked about:

*** Her subdued acting where you can practically see emotions flutter across her face
*** What attracted her to play Rachel Singer in the movie?
*** She’s the only American actor in the ensemble! Go USA! :happy
*** How she explored the thread of continuity with Helen Mirren
*** Working with the Queen herself, Miss Mirren
*** How she used Krav Maga to prepare for the action scenes of the film
