March 1, 2013   Ali   Articles & Interviews, Co-Stars, Les Misérables Comments Off on Seyfried, Redmayne complete ‘Les Mis’ love triangle

USA Today did a nice feature back in December on Eddie & Amanda … great interview! It isn’t brand new but thought it was fun for all Redmayniacs! Here is the part about Eddie …

Thanks to Jan for the heads up!

Eddie Redmayne and Amanda Seyfried take on the star-crossed lovers Marius and Cosette.

Eddie Redmayne, 30, as Marius

Musical background: Redmayne began on stage, earning a 2010 featured-actor Tony for Red, a play about painter Mark Rothko. But his first brush with musicals came at age 11 or so, when he was in Cameron Mackintosh’s production of Oliver!, directed by Sam Mendes. He has done TV (including HBO’s Elizabeth I, directed by Les Misérables’ Tom Hooper) and films including The Other Boleyn Girl and My Week With Marilyn.

Q: You have some music in your background, but until now, your résumé barely reflects that.

A:I did Oliver! onstage during the 1994 revival in London. For a long time, I always claimed I worked with Sam Mendes. But the reality of it was, I was workhouse boy No. 40, and I never met Sam. I always sung as a kid at university, but then I focused on acting.

Q: When did you first see Les Misérables?

A:My parents took me to see it when I was about 7 with my brother. We went as a family, and the CD was always on in the car. I grew up listening to it. When I found out they were doing a movie, I was actually in North Carolina doing a film and was in my trailer. I decided to do an audition tape on my iPhone. I sang Empty Chairs at Empty Tables. From there, it became a very rigorous process, sort of like American Idol or X Factor. Originally, it was just Tom and the casting director, but by the end, it was a whole big panel including Cameron.

Q: Why does Les Mis affect people so deeply?

A:It is so multifaceted. Whatever age or sex you are, there is something you can passionately connect to. When I was 7 and saw this, I just wanted to be Gavroche (the young boy who hangs out with the students). I thought he was the coolest little kid. He was strong and brave and got to run around the barricade and hang out with adults. It was the same way that girlfriends of mine wanted to be the little Cosette, being beautiful and singing about castles. There is romance, action, moments everyone can tap into.

Q: You were worried that Marius might come off as a drip on-screen. How did you avoid that?

A:There are a lot of aspects to his character that are deeply irritating. Various extraordinary people die for him. Everyone is giving up their lives, and he is sort of blindly going through. In our adaptation, he is this romantic prototype, but there needed to be something else in him so that the audience doesn’t want to slap him from the word go. We went back to the novel, where he ends up taking a keg of powder and is willing to kill himself and all the people around him for the cause. We added that back in. He’s not in any way a hero. He is complicated. So in the end, he is human and flawed but goes through this extraordinary transition from boy to manhood. That’s what I cared about.

Q: One of the scenes in the film that you probably wished was done more like the play is when Hugh as Valjean is forced to carry your limp, injured body through sewers awash in slimy liquid — which aren’t part of the stage version.

A:Tom tried to pretend it was chocolate, but I was not so sure. It was a horrible, grotty mix of stuff. Halfway through the day, it was freezing cold. Hugh had to go through so much. He had to carry my lumpen load through all that stuff. I was just there playing dead. It was hard and grueling. My makeup artist said it was made of clay, and it was going to be good for our skin. Like I give a toss.

Q: Amanda says you sneaked in a kiss during the wedding scene that was not scripted.

A:Yeah, she blamed that one on me.

February 27, 2013   Ali   Les Misérables Comments Off on Les Misérables on DVD & Blu-Ray: Get All The Details

Remember how I told you that Les Misérables was set to be released on DVD & Blu Ray starting March 22rd? Well we have all the details on the release here along with the special features.

Les Misérables will be available in the US on March 22nd and in Australia on April 24th. As I find more dates I will be sure to share them!

You can pre-order the Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy/Ultraviolet combo pack now and have it delivered straight to your door from Amazon.com. Click here to learn more!

Bonus Features Exclusive to the Blu-ray
Les Misérables Singing Live: The star-studded cast and production team discuss how the daunting challenge of singing live rather than lip-syncing to pre-recorded tracks ultimately gave them the creative freedom to deliver nuanced, emotionally powerful performances.

Battle at the Barricade: Director Tom Hooper wanted the dramatic building of the barricade to be as visceral and intense as possible, so he had his actors build it in real time, literally hurling furniture out of windows to construct an actual barricade. This featurette takes an in-depth look at the creation and filming of all the action on this remarkable set.

The West End Connection: Meet the “godfather” of the original stage production of Les Misérables, renowned West End producer Cameron Mackintosh, who was deeply involved in the filming, as well as former Les Misérables, theatrical stars who were thrilled to appear in supporting roles in the current film.

Les Misérables on Location: Filming rather than staging Les Misérables presents the opportunity to shoot in real world locations: a massive dry dock on the coast of England, a beautiful underground chapel in the heart of London and the ancient city of Winchester. Members of the cast and crew talk about what it was like to find and work in these incredible locations.

Bonus Features on Both the Blu-ray and DVD
The Stars of Les Misérables: Director Tom Hooper talks about casting the iconic characters, and the actors discuss why it was important to them to be a part of this groundbreaking version of Les Misérables.

Creating the Perfect Paris: Production designer Eve Stewart created a massive Paris set featuring real cobblestones and running water. Take an intricate look into the detailed recreation of these Paris streets that no longer exist in today’s world.

The Original Masterwork: Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables: This mini-documentary takes a look at the historical backdrop and universal themes of Hugo’s classic, and how the filmmakers mined the novel to enrich the look and feel of the film.

Feature Commentary with Director Tom Hooper

February 27, 2013   Ali   Les Misérables, Video Comments Off on Les Misérables | Ground Breaking

Less than a month until Les Mis is on DVD & BluRay (can’t wait!) NBC has released this video showing clips of the movie and excerpts from the cast.

February 26, 2013   Ali   Charity, Video Comments Off on END 7

Eddie along with Emily Blunt, Tom Felton, Priyanka Chopra and others have joined the END 7 Campaign. Watch the video and see Eddie’s reaction to some of the things going on in the world … and what you can do to help.

END7 aims to raise the public awareness and funding required to cover the cost of distributing medicine and setting up treatment programs for NTDs. A big problem is that NTDs affect neglected communities — the world’s poorest people. So END7 is about providing them with a voice to help address a big problem. Emily Blunt (“Salmon Fishing in the Yemen,” “Devil Wears Prada”); Eddie Redmayne (“Les Miserables,” “My Week with Marilyn”); Tom Felton (“Harry Potter” series); Yvonne Chaka Chaka (South African pop star); Tom Hollander (“Pirates of the Caribbean,” “Pride and Prejudice”); and Priyanka Chopra (leading Bollywood actress and international recording artist) are featured in the video and are END7 supporters.

This won’t be easy. To end these diseases by 2020 we need to raise money from governments and the public to transport the pills to those in need and set up treatment programs that communities can run themselves. While the diseases have been around for centuries, the global effort to eliminate them is brand new.

To do your part visit End7.org or visit their Twitter or Facebook pages to learn more and to get involved in the fight to help end these seven illnesses.

February 26, 2013   Ali   Events, Style Comments Off on GQ’s Red Carpet Breakdown: Eddie Redmayne

I loved Eddie’s look at the Academy Awards and so did GQ.com … they did a breakdown of his look.

As we said in our round-up from last night’s Academy Awards, Eddie Redmayne has proven to be this awards season’s MVP, stepping on to each red carpet in perfectly fitted rigs that expertly walk the line between modern and traditional. This year’s Oscars were no different, with Redmayne’s Alexander McQueen getup easily being one of the evening’s best. But a closer look reveals some stellar details that are lost from afar, like those gold monkey fist studs on his shirt, badass barbed wire McQueen cufflinks, sleek gold case Omega watch, and subtle McQueen skull slippers. It all makes us appreciate Redmayne’s efforts even more, while simultaneously forcing us to wonder why other celebs can’t take a risk or two with as much ease.
