In the interview, Siff, who received an M.F.A. in Acting at the Tisch School of the Arts, talks about how much of herself is in her character, why the best roles for women are on TV, her Shakespearean ways and what her plans are when the show ends.

I am a huge fan of Sam Rockwell. I honestly think he’s one of the most talented and versatile actors working today and he proves it once again by rescuing director David M. Rosenthal‘s, A Single Shot.
Rockwell plays John Moon, who, when the film starts is out hunting deer. He spots one, chases it through the woods and shoots. Unfortunately, he accidentally shoots and kills a young woman. He rushes up to her and as he watches her die, finds a box of money. He quickly hides the body, takes the money and hi-tails it out of there.
Using his new found cash, Moon hires the town lawyer (William H. Macy) to help him fight his divorce but he soon discovers that the money belonged to a couple of thugs, and guess what? They want it back. Read more

He’ll play evening performances starting tonight.
Reeve Carney, the original Peter Parker, played his final performance yesterday in order to begin shooting for the new HBO series, Penny Dreadful.
“We looked for our new lead in LA and New York. During Justin’s rehearsals as the alternate Peter Parker/Spider-Man, we realized this is the guy to take over for Reeve. He is one of Broadway’s great rockers,” said producers Michael Cohl and Jere Harris. Read more
Daniel Bruhl is absolutely fantastic in the new Ron Howard film, Rush. The film is great and a lot of that can be credited to Bruhl who portrays Formula 1 superstar Niki Lauda.
To play Lauda, Bruhl says in the video that he read Lauda’s biography, watched documentaries to get his body language right, worked with an accent coach and asked Lauda a “ton of questions.” He says, “to play him was not that easy because we don’t have that much in common. He’s very different. It freaked me out at first.”
In the video below, Brulh talks with Anne Thompson about the film, portraying Niki Lauda and more.

Here’s a couple videos featuring Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto talking about their new film, Dallas Buyers Club. I am really looking forward to this. McConaughey is on a spectacular roll the past couple of years and this will only add to it.
In the first video, McConaughey, Leto and Director Jean-Marc Vallee talk about why they wanted to make a movie based on the life of AIDS activist Ron Woodruff. McConaughey calls it a “bull ride” and how getting Woodruff’s diary was the key for him. Leto, who plays a transgender person, says he talked to several transgendered people and how the whole process became really “special.”
In the second video, McConaughey talks about his weight loss for the role and how hard it was to get the film made, Leto talks about the stereotypes of taking on a transgender role. Jennifer Garner also makes a brief appearance in the video as well.
