Rosemarie DeWitt Interview for “Promised Land!” I Love Her! 

I love, love, love Rosemarie Dewitt! From “Mad Men” to “United States of Tara” to her film appearances this year in the fantastic “Your Sister’s Sister” and “Promised Land,” Dewitt is a fine actress. In “Promised Land,” she plays Alice, the woman between the dueling gas company salesman (Matt Damon) and activist (John Krasinski).

Sure, “Promised Land” is being called a fracking movie but it’s more than that – it’s about a community and their collected lives, hopes, and dreams. And it’s funny!

In this interview, Dewitt and I talked about:

*** Her character as the heart of the film
*** Her party-teacher character
*** What got her interested in making “Promised Land”
*** The film’s script written by Damon and Krasinski
*** The chemistry between Damon and Frances McDormand
*** Working with Matt Damon and John Krasinski
*** Matt Damon’s character’s evolution

Ewan McGregor Interview for “The impossible” 

I’ve always admired Ewan McGregor. I think he’s an underrated actor who has always been consistent in shining in his movies. In his latest flick, “The Impossible,” McGregor is fantastic as Henry, the father of the family devastated by the Tsunami of December 26, 2004. This is their true story.

In this interview, we talked about:

*** What did he think of the script initially?
*** Playing a parent for the first time
*** Working with the child actors
*** His chemistry with Naomi Watts
*** My favorite scene of his in “The Impossible”

Tom Holland Interview for “The Impossible” 

Relative newcomer Tom Holland is a marvel in the new film “The Impossible.” He’s a stage veteran by now, having starred in “Billy Elliot” in London’s West End, but this is first full-feature film and he has to share screen time with Naomi Watts who’s playing his mom. Holland stars as Lucas, the eldest son of Maria (Watts) and Henry (Ewan McGregor). When the Tsunami hit the coast where their family is vacationing, it’s now up to them to find each other before time runs out.

Based on a true story from one of the survivors, Maria Belon, “The Impossible” is directed by Juan Antonio Bayona. You will cry a lot!

In this interview, Holland and I talked about:

*** What was his initial reaction to the script?
*** Working with Naomi Watts
*** Acting on-stage versus on-film
*** Filming the violent underwater scenes
