BREAKING! : HOLLYWOOD ACTOR SHOWS HUMILITY, SEEMS TO CARE ABOUT AUDIENCE!; ALSO: SOMEBODY'S DREADS ARE FALLING OUT!


I admit to not knowing anything about Sam Worthington prior to Terminator : Salvation, and while I've had no reason to dislike the guy up to this point, I think he's instantly launched himself into the realm of actors I'd like to give a big hug to (without creeping them out).

Worthington recently said the below in response to beefs that fans/viewers expressed about T4:

---
"I can nitpick with the best of them and go down the list of things I saw on IMDB where they found holes in it, and go, 'You are f*cking right,'" he said. "If there was a big 10-ton robot coming outside that gas station, surely we would f*cking hear it. And I missed that. So I'm going to be a bit better when I'm looking through my f*cking scripts. So it raises my game a bit, because now I feel like an idiot for not saying it to McG."

He added that he takes criticism very seriously and uses it to become a better actor. "I read what people say, because they're my audience," Worthington continued. "And if you don't know how you're coming across, in my opinion, I think you're cutting yourself off a bit."

---


In other news, (probably) America's worst film director - it's a horse race between him, Kevin Smith, and Todd Phillips - has a new movie coming out this weekend... but he's totally stressing out!

The lead singer of White Zombie says:

---
"I cannot relax and settle down. My brain is always racing with ideas. I can't calm down. I'm like that all that time."
(LA Times)
---

I'm guessing that the sound of all those "ideas" racing around in Zombie's head is of one note.

good find on worthington's humility. that is good.

Fox said...

RC-

He even has a gentle mug. I feel tempted to flat-out call him a great guy, but I know little about him still.

Linden Arden said...

I'm sure Rob Zombie's probably thinking about the other classic American horror movies he can give the white trash/metalhead treatment to. He must be heartbroken that he missed out on Friday the 13th, and the chance to recast Mrs. Voorhees as a neglectful stripper-mom struggling to keep her animal torturing son Jason away from the cruel bullies at Camp Crystal Lake.

Ha! No doubt about that! I can see him at the premier in Los Angeles with Sheri Moon Zombie (I wonder if they actually sign checks and Christmas cards with the name "Zombie", and, if so, can they really still be pulling that off when they're 82 years old?) whispering in her ear how he could have done much better.

I bet he would have made the origin of the Jason mask into something really lame too.

Well, in the case of Friday the 13th, he would have simply been making a lame movie lame again. So no big deal there.

But I love the idea that he has so many "ideas" "racing" through his "head". He's like Picasso in that respect.

Fox said...

Bill-

When you and Dennis complete the Inglourious Basterds discussion, maybe we can set aside a week to break down H2? Sound good?

bill r. said...

Ha! We're still supposed to do a dual review kind of thing, aren't we? A week of Rob Zombie...whatever goodwill I may have built up by pairing up with Dennis this week would be obliterated by devoting any time at all to Rob Zombie.

I still do want to pair up with you on something, though.

Fox said...

Yes. We should. I still like the idea of us simultaneously live-blogging a movie that we've rented, but that might be completely self-indulgent. I don't know who else would get a kick out of it but us.

The back-and-forth you and Dennis had this week as set a pretty high standard. Have you been measuring your hits? I've been noticing links to you place from other blogs b/c of the convo. And it's well-deserved, you guys put a great effort into it.

bill r. said...

Even if live-blogging a movie together was self-indulgent, I still think it sounds like a lot of fun. I want to do that.

Thank you very much for the compliment, Fox. I haven't been measuring my hits, because outside of using Sitemeter -- which I do use, but I don't think that's what you're talking about -- I don't know how to do that. I have seen a few links, though. One, on a blog by a guy named Jamie Uhrer, called me brilliant, and then, as proof, attributed one of Dennis's paragraphs to me. I had to correct him, though it hurt like hell.

This may sound shallow and self-involved, but if you wouldn't mind e-mailing other links to me that are outside of our circle of bloggers, that I may not know about, I'd appreciate it.

That sounds horrible, doesn't it?

Fox said...

That sounds horrible, doesn't it?...

HA! No, it doesn't sound horrible. You should be proud! Part of the pleasure in blogging is gettin recognized for your good work.

The one I saw this morning was on Scanners HERE. I'm guessing you already saw that one, but I will definitely e-mail you more as I come across them.

But, dude, the Scanners one is sweet because you are in there with some heavies! No matter what people think of the voices as varied as Hoberman, Rosenbaum, and Armond White, there is no denying they are institutions. I think it's awesome that you're in there alongside them. Tell your wife. Maybe she will think you are awesome for once!!!

Oh and have you used Google Analytics? Don't know how accurate it actually is, but it gives you breakdowns of hits per day, etc.

bill r. said...

Yeah, Tony Dayoub was linked in that Scanners piece, too, and he was telling me how jarring it felt to his name mixed in with all those others. And I do indeed know how he feels. It's frankly a little absurd, at least as far as my own inclusion goes. This will probably sound like false modesty, or like I'm fishing for compliments, but I think Dennis has carred a lot of the weight in this. I just got his e-mail for his end of part four. I haven't had time to read it yet, but that fucker is long.

THEN YOU BETTER GET TO WORK!

Make this one your parting shot masterpiece! (sorry, that was putting some pressure on you there.)
