It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!April 14, 2021 at 7:14 am #1204199989
I wonder if Jackman will be campaigned on lead.April 14, 2021 at 7:29 am #1204200001
It’s about time for Jackman to complete his EGOT.April 14, 2021 at 7:51 am #1204200026
Reading around this sounds like another great play from Zeller with a similarity to The Father in how praised it has been for realistically and empathetically portraying illness. This focuses on depression in a teenage son, with his parents struggling to support him and his condition. Reviews generally praise the play quite strongly and it sounds like Jackman and the teenage son are leads, whilst Dern will be in a strong supporting role. They might run one of the men in supporting, perhaps a Timothy Hutton kind of situation with the son, although it might be hard to justify by the sounds of it, so perhaps Jackman will be run there instead. The notices for the son character are particularly strong, and it sounds like a similar role to Hopkins’ in The Father in terms of viscerally portraying a condition, so I wonder if a young actor could have a good shot at a nomination with that role. Really impressive production team behind this, too, so I like its chances.April 14, 2021 at 7:53 am #1204200031

Can’t wait the “The grandfather”
The Son is part of a trilogy with The Father which also includes The Mother, so, you joke, but we are probably getting another one. No complaints from me, though, especially when Isabelle Huppert starred in it on stage!April 14, 2021 at 8:00 am #1204200042

I read in an interview recently Zeller has someone specific in mind, wouldn’t surprise me if it was a boring choice like Chalamet or Hedges (as much as I like both actors)
Vitalina Varela, Vitalina Varela (Actress)
Andrea Riseborough, Karim Saleh, Possessor/Luxor (Actress, Actor)
Rosamund Pike, Peter Dinklage, I Care a Lot (Actress, Supporting Actor)

Sophia Loren, Abril Zamora, The Life Ahead (Actress, Supporting Actress)
Carey Mulligan, Promising Young Woman (Actress)April 14, 2021 at 8:05 am #1204200063
13 Reasons Why‘s Devin Druid would be brilliant in that type of role. He’s already got a shoutout from Barry Jenkins for a different role, and his performance in the show (particularly Season 3) has been well-received.
Movie-lover overall.April 14, 2021 at 8:22 am #1204200089
