Shame actors

http://watch-the-pacific-episodes-online.download-tvshows.com/james-badge-dale-is-in-shame/

Hi friends!

Do you have any idea why, The Pacific episodes’ star, James Badge Dale, is in shame?

Don’t panic!

‘Shame’ is the forthcoming project of The Pacific series’ star and he is absolutely perfect for the role.

I can see you all getting excited about wanting to know the details!

Chill guys, why do you think I’m here!

‘Shame’ is being directed by Steve McQueen and in this movie, you will get a chance to witness James in the role of a boss, who is really dominating.

Well, I have seen the most entertaining performances of James, each time I got myself The Pacific download. I’m really eager to catch this silver screen project, because I think it will bring forward the hidden talents of James.

The movie entitled ‘Shame’ is based on a middle aged man named Brandon, who lives in New York and like a lot of other men, is really frustrated with his sexual life.

In addition, he also thinks that no one can fulfill his physical desires. Brandon’s life spirals out of control, when his younger sister, Sissy, enters the scene.

Steve McQueen shared something about his forthcoming project, stating, “Shame is a compelling and timely examination of the nature of need, how we live our lives and the experiences that shape us”.

Well, I’m sure James will definitely do justice with his role. This silver screen project is full of feelings, desires, shame, sins and treachery.

I have seen all these shades in James’s character, which he played in The Pacific. You can catch his remarkable performances right here, if you watch The Pacific episodes online!

‘Shame’ is based on the physical and emotional desires of human beings and it will have a focus on the complicated sexual lives of the characters of the movie.

In this movie, you will also get a chance to witness Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan.

The movie is in under post-production at the moment, so keep your fingers crossed for the movie to release soon, so that you get to see your fave James in the role of a boss!

But if you wanna catch The Pacific star right now, then witness his incredibly interesting performances right here online!

Nicole Beharie In Talks To Star In Steve McQueen’s “Shame” Opposite Michael Fassbender
By Tambay, on December 22nd, 2010

Recall my post from September announcing Brit director Steve McQueen’s next project before his Fela biopic… A film that will reunite him with his Hunger star, Michael Fassbender, titled, Shame.

At the time of that posting, all we knew was that, in Shame, scheduled to begin shooting in January 2011, Fassbender will play a fellow by the name of Brandon, described as a 30-something man living in New York, whose addiction to pornography threatens to destroy his romantic life.

We later reported that Fassbender would be playing opposite a yet-to-be-cast-at-the-time black female lead, said to be in her 20s, “extremely beautiful,” and “very confident,” with an “unwitting sexuality,” and is “clearly attracted to Brandon.” The pair apparently date, and eventually develop a relationship, although she is unaware of his inability to connect with a woman on a more than superficial level, thanks to his porn addiction!

Thanks to a tip from Shadow And Act reader Vanessa, who pointed me to THIS interview with Nicole Beharie, dated December 13th, in which she gives the following reply when asked whether it’s hard getting acting work: “It hasn’t been and, knock on wood, I thank my creator and hope that I can keep it going. I actually have a job coming up in February with an interesting director, Steve McQueen, that we’re shooting in the city. I can’t talk about it until it’s official.”

Obvious guy says, of course she’s referring to Steve McQueen’s Shame project. What else could it be, given the role being cast, the actress, and the time of the shooting.

Although, it very well could be some other role in the film that hasn’t been announced yet, but I doubt it. I think she’s talking about the lead black female role opposite Fassbender. However, as she said, nothing’s official yet. Though, with the film scheduled to start shooting in about a month, I’m sure we’ll hear something official soon enough, whether the role is given to Beharie or some other actress.

You can read the full interview with Nicole HERE.

And, by the way, I posted a lukewarm review of the script for Shame, back in October. You can read it HERE.

Nicole Beharie, 2 Movies, 2 White Leading Men

You probably know Nicole Beharie from her work opposite Alfre Woodard in American Violet. Well, she supposedly has two films coming out soon that I am excited about seeing. In both films she plays the leading lady opposite White leading men.

Carey Mulligan in NYC for ‘Shame’ and ‘Through a Glass Darkly’

by Christine on January 31, 2011 ·

Before she takes the stage for Through A Glass Darkly, an adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s 1961 film which will premiere off-Broadway starting May 13, Carey Mulligan begins shooting the indie flick Shame in NYC this week.

Carey stars as the sister of Michael Fassbender who plays a “thirtysomething man living in New York, who is unable to manage his sex life.” Carey has already been spotted around NYC with her new boyfriend Eddie Redmayne.

In addition to these roles, she will also star as Daisy in the upcoming adaptation of The Great Gatsby later this year.

Carey Mulligan adds 'Shame' to her resume

* February 21st, 2011 12:40 am ET

Today's news states that Carey Mulligan has added Shame to her resume.

No, this accomplished actress is not embarassed about anything. In fact, the hard worker is involved in a number of film projects, the latest of which puts her on the same set as Michael Fassbender and James Badge Dale.

The starring vehicle for Carey Mulligan, called Shame, is a follow-up for the Steven McQueen drama, Hunger.

Reports a number of sources, including Newstroxy, 'McQueen will be re-teaming with his Hunger cinematographer Sean Bobbit.'

The publication stats that Shame is scheduled for a New York City shoot, with plans to hit UK theaters late this year.

With that exciting entertainment news being so, Carey Mulligan will apparently be hitting the Big Apple for about six weeks. For sure, this will, in no way, be a shame for her New York fans. In fact, these avid movie lovers will probably be following the production schedule for a chance to see the seasoned actress in the flesh.

Updates On Nicole Beharie’s Attachment To Steve McQueen’s “Shame”

By Tambay, on February 22nd, 2011

Recall my post from December stating that Nicole Beharie was “in talks” to star opposite Michael Fassbender, in Brit director Steve McQueen’s next project, titled, Shame.

Nicole was quoted in a December interview, stating, “I actually have a job coming up in February with an interesting director, Steve McQueen, that we’re shooting in the city. I can’t talk about it until it’s official.”

Well, there never was a follow-up post on whether she she officially was cast in the role. I haven’t read any reports since then that affirm that.

So, I emailed the production company behind the film for answers. Their reply was vague. They wouldn’t confirm whether or not Beharie is indeed the film, but did say, “The shoot is well underway and casting complete.”

Ok. I’m not sure why they’re being so secretive. If casting is complete, and shooting is underway, then it all should be public record. But, regardless, I’ll go out on not much of a limb and say that Beharie is definitely in the film, which is currently shooting in NYC. There might be some on-set photos floating around the web that will confirm this.

To rehash… in the film, Fassbender plays a fellow by the name of Brandon, described as a 30-something man living in New York, whose addiction to pornography threatens to destroy his romantic life. He meets an “extremely beautiful,” “very confident,” black woman, with an “unwitting sexuality,” who is “clearly attracted to Brandon.” The pair apparently date, and eventually develop a relationship, although she is unaware of his inability to connect with a woman on a more than superficial level, thanks to his porn addiction! Drama naturally ensues.

The film should be out later this year.

And, by the way, I posted a lukewarm review of the script for Shame, back in October. You can read it HERE.

Best Actress 2011: Carey Mulligan, Shame

It's not uncommon these days for a young British (or Australian) woman in the 20 - 30-year range to score a leading Oscar nomination. In recent times, we've seen Keira Knightley, Samantha Morton, Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslet, Emily Watson. It happens every couple of years without fail and more often than their American counterparts. And most of the time, they go on to have quite successful careers, Blanchett and Winslet being the best examples of the sort. Morton and Watson also do quite respectably, perhaps in lower-key careers. Knightley is still in the game, yet, she is on a different trajectory, considering she had a multimillion dollar franchise tucked under her corset early-on and seems to be the one who relies the most on her physical beauty to get her by.

Carey Mulligan, quite charming in An Education, for which she received her first nod, appears to be possibly poised to follow in the footsteps of Blanchett and Winslet. She doesn't have a problem with endeavoring mainstream fare, though how successful those efforts will be down the road remains to be seen. While she gets a lot of attention in the press, it's still too early for her to be a household name. But, she's got the chops to make a long-term go at it and appears to be, at this point, in a better position than Knightley to score a second Oscar nod. She was quite affecting in Never Let Go and gained some traction, but its melancholy tone and subject matter kept the masses away. Now, it's just a matter of The Right Role.

She may get that in Baz Luhrman's version of The Great Gatsby in 2012. I found the classic a bit of a bore and, apparently, the 1970's film version failed to create sparks. But, Luhrman is all about the *Fireworks* and the film is set in the roaring 20's, so you know he's all over that s$#!. I just hope he tones down the camera spinning so I can hold my lunch down during the screening.

Until then, she has action-drama Drive on tap with cinematic prince Ryan Gosling. It filmed last Fall in L.A. Film District (Don't Be Afraid of the Dark) releases it on 16. September 2011 [U.S.]. Several companies were behind this including Marc Platt Productions.

She also has Shame from young British filmmaker Steve McQueen (apparently, he didn't get the memo that the name was permanently taken), costarring Michael Fassbender, a racy sibling drama that, if successful, could provide accolades. Shame is from a screenplay by McQueen co-written with Abi Morgan. Filming started in January. Production companies include See Saw Films (Oranges and Sunshine) and Film4 (The Iron Lady, The Deep Blue See, Wuthering Heights, On the Road).

Meet Rachel Farrar, a GSA alum who's appeared in "Salt," "30 Rock" and more.

RachelfarrarGSA

Year attended GSA: 2003

Discipline: Musical Theatre

College: University of Kentucky, Class of 2008

Degree: Bachelor of Music, Vocal Music Performance

Current home: New York, NY

A native of Lexington, KY, Rachel Farrar has found her way from the University of Kentucky's Opera Theatre to movie and sitcom sets across the boroughs of New York - all the while maintaining a strong connection to her home state and a great appreciation for her GSA experience. Read more about Rachel and her blooming career at www.RachelFarrar.com.

Boy-o! So much has happened in the seven wild and wonderful years since I attended The Kentucky Center Governor's School for the Arts. In 2004, support from GSA made it possible for me to attend the University of Kentucky where I received a Bachelor of Music degree in Voice. I am so glad I chose to stay in-state for college, where I had room to spread out and grow.

After graduating I was "ripe" and ready to work! I moved to New York hoping to perform full-time. I soon found myself singing in the professional choir at Saint Bartholomew's Church in Manhattan. In early 2009, my Saint Bart's colleagues and I were asked to sing in the Angelina Jolie blockbuster, Salt.

Thanks to this massive stroke of luck, I became eligible to join the Screen Actors' Guild. As a member of the union, I now work as an extra and stand-in on production filming inNew York. My most exciting background moments include playing dodgeball alongside Tina Fey in 30 Rock and being a regular Atlantic City resident on HBO's Boardwalk Empire. Since joinging SAG, I have also landed a few principal roles in film and TV. Most recently, I acted in a small role on the 2011 film Shame, starring Carey Mulligan, Michael Fassbender, and James Badge Dale.

Caery mulligan

While I am certainly proud of what I've achieved so far in New York, the career of any artist has its ups and downs. I think one of the greatest things I learned during my time at GSA is the profound importance of community. There are so many GSA alumni and Kentuckians in New York pursuing artistic careers. Staying connected with them offers me invaluable support and inspires me to stick with it. Thanks to them, I am excited to see what else 2011 has in store.

Carey Mulligan rolls up on set with her hair in curlers

By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 9:51 PM on 10th March 2011

Her Oscar nominated role in The Education shows she is wise beyond her years but Carey Mulligan look older too as she stepped out on set yesterday.

The 25-year-old British actress was spotted on the set of her new film, Shame, which is filming on location in New York, with a full head of rollers in her hair.

Adding to the old-fashioned look, Carey was scruffily dressed in a long flowing skirt which she paired with men's style brown shoes, ankle socks and a khaki green military style hooded jacket.

Looking glum, she clutched a hot coffee as she headed into her trailer during a break from filming.

The actress has been shooting this film in New York for several weeks alongside Michael Fassbender who plays Brandon, a 30-something who has problems managing his sex life.

In the film Carey plays his sister Sissy, who tries to help him after moving in with him.

Following Shame, Carey will be embarking on filming The Great Gatsby, alongside Leonardo DiCaprio as title character Jay Gatsby and Tobey McGuire as his friend Nick Carraway.

Mulligan beat off competition from big name stars including Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, and Keira Knightley for the part of Daisy Buchanan in the movie.

The multi million dollar remake, based on the classic American F Scott Fitzgerald novel, will be directed by Baz Luhrmann and shot in Sydney.

Back in November, the director announced Carey had the part.

He said: 'Regarding the role of Daisy Buchanan, I was privileged to explore the character with some of the world’s most talented actresses, each one bringing their own particular interpretation, all of which were legitimate and exciting.

‘However, specific to this particular production of The Great Gatsby, I was thrilled to pick up the phone an hour ago to the young Oscar-nominated British actress Carey Mulligan and say to her, “Hello, Daisy Buchanan”.’

Carey Mulligan will sing on screen for the first time in Shame, an intense drama about a brother and sister on the loose in Manhattan.

Director Steve McQueen has the actress perform the John Kander and Fred Ebb anthem New York New York in a nightclub scene: Carey purrs her way through the number about waking up in a city that doesn’t sleep.

Shame, written by Abi Morgan (who penned the BBC drama The Hour), features Carey and Michael Fassbender as siblings who experience complex emotions in their love lives.

McQueen shot a lot of the film on a closed set because of the full-on explicit images.

McQueen, producer Iain Canning and executives from Film 4 and Momentum will take Shame on the road, with a premiere at the Venice Film Festival followed by screenings at the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado, the Toronto International Film Festival and a major gala slot at the BFI-American Express London Film Festival on October 14.

http://blogs.indiewire.com/shadowandact/archives/exclusive_nicole_beharie_talks_career_choices_burden_of_representation_bein/

Exclusive! Nicole Beharie Talks Career Choices, Burden Of Representation, Being An “It” Girl & More

Actress Nicole Beharie, 26, is a fan of Sci-Fi, especially Octavia Butler novels; which she wishes would be adapted to the screen. Beharie is “like in love” with Whoopi Goldberg, and she’s also fervent in professing the respect and admiration for the performances of Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer in the controversial film The Help, in theaters now. Would she like to eventually follow the footsteps of Viola Davis and produce her own films? The answer of this wise beyond-her-years talented actor was the most certain and resounding one of this nonetheless candid phone interview, which lasted over an hour, “DEFINITELY, definitely.”

As soon as Nicole sent me a text message, saying that she would be calling me in five minutes, right after getting her tea and reserving a spot at a busy café, I realized this was a surreal moment for me. I have been following her career upon seeing her magnificent performance in 2008’s American Violet. Besides her striking looks, the graceful and delicate Juilliard graduate, portrayed an ordinary woman with an unprecedented fortitude, maturity and intelligence not commonly seen on the screen. I knew at that moment she was an important talent to watch.

She then continued to carve her own path, selecting projects that spoke to her artistry and showed her dynamic acting range: an angry and resentful daughter with a nervous condition in Lifetime’s Sins of the Mother, a down and out singer who falls in love in My Last Day Without You, the love interest of an afflicted sex-addict in Steve Mc’queen‘sShame (opposite Michael Fassbender), a bipolar and secluded woman involved in an online affair in Small of Her Back, a slave country wife anxious to explore the world in Broadway’s A Free Man of Color, the high school sweetheart of an ex-football player in Matthew Cherry’s The Last Fall and a member of a community searching for a couple’s missing daughter in T.D. Jakes’ On the Seventh Day. She will also be seen this fall, in a guest spot playing an attorney for CBS’ critically acclaimed hit show The Good Wife, which premieres this September 25th at 10pm et.

VM: Steve McQueen’s Shame is a highly anticipated film screening at Venice Film Fest this month and at Toronto next month; how did you get involved with the project? Did you audition?

NB: I was doing A Free Man of Color at the time, and it was a crazy work schedule with all the shows. I didn’t have time to go to the audition. He [McQueen] was looking for people, and he’s like really hands on. He contacted my agent to arrange the audition, they were like, “why is she standing you up?” But I wasn’t; I meant to go in but our schedules kept changing. It’s kind of strange; I think it peaked his interest by me being unavailable [laughs]. I ended up meeting with Steve to talk about the character. I think he was a little upset; in a way reprimanded me for having missed my audition [chuckles].

Then I put myself on tape and that was the end of it, not that I thought I had the part by no means, but after meeting with Steve, I knew this project was going to be special, as far as what he had in mind and his style of work, which he’s willing to play with and change to allow the actors to define their roles was something I needed to experience. Whatever people read on the script is not necessarily what the film is going to be. For example, there’s a scene that’s almost eight pages of dialogue that we ended up improvising, so I’m very interested in seeing the film myself.

VM: How was working with Steve McQueen?

NB: It was amazing. He allowed me to relax and not be so self-aware; not worry about how I’m looking. He was like “do you.” He thinks along the grain of how I like to think. He was great to work for and him being a visual artist, especially a black artist, and us sharing some in depth conversations about that; I’m forever indebted to him.

VM: How was working with Michael Fassbender?

NB: He’s a riot. Very intelligent, fearless, playful. We were shooting a scene back in February or March; it was freezing raining, we were walking down East Village over and over again, and it was so much fun to enjoy the person you’re working with. He made some of the uncomfortable scenes easier. I’m just glad I worked with the guy. He’s blowing up and for a good reason!

VM: Obviously, Shame is a sexually charged drama overall. Did you have any doubts going in?

NB: If you’ve watched Hunger [Steve McQueen’s directing debut], there’s a lot of nudity in that, and it’s for a reason. This film is about something taboo [sex addiction]. I have gotten reactions from my family and other people who have an idea of who I am as an artist, and they’re like “I can’t believe you’re doing something like that,” and I’m like “well, you see music videos and you get more than enough,” and here you have a story about something that’s really talking about where addiction lives and things that go on everyday right underneath our noses and there’s a big problem with that. For everyone involved in the film, it was pretty much about everything else going on besides that.

VM: What can you say about your character Beth Hutchins in T.D. Jakes’ On the Seventh Day?

NB: My character is a professional woman and she’s part of the support system in the community, who helps a couple find their missing daughter. It’s an uplifting story, but it also forces you to look at secrets. I can’t give too much away, but there’s a lot of twists and turns in the story.

VM: How hard is it to find work? Are you getting offers?

NB: I’m auditioning. You may audition for something a month ago, you don’t hear anything and then they call you. I have been getting a few offers here and there. The problem with that is, if you have an idea of the character that is different from whatever they thought you were like. I show up sometimes, and they expect me to be the girl from American Violet in real life [laughs]. I show up and I’m 5’1” and kind of shy.

VM: What can you say about S&A’s topic about the “Burden of Representation” for black actors?

NB: I think there are all kinds of representation. As artists, you can’t box yourself in. Like Christian Bale gets to do the coolest things; I think the other side of that, is to limit ourselves because we have this ‘compensating middle class thing,’ and we have to be like, perfect. There are expectations in how you play your character as a black woman, to be sassy and the same kind of feel, as if there are no quirky black women. I struggle with those things constantly, trying to add dimension to my work and that’s the goal too.

There’s so many things that I’ve read that I’m just like “naahh.” I have certain socio-political ideals that won’t allow me to do certain things [chuckles]. I’m going to have to watch my sun and my mercurial spirit. But yah, I don’t want my mother or grandmother to be embarrassed by anything that I do.

VM: What can you say about The Help film?

NB: People criticize Viola Davis because she was in it, but, she was amazing. The actress is amazing. I have a lot of respect for her and Octavia Spencer; she was wonderful. There were moments where I was moved. I enjoyed certain parts and that’s all I’ll say about that. Everything about us black people is complicated, us being here, being a minority, being a woman, all those things are complicated.

VM: Any other projects on the horizon??

NB: I usually don’t say anything until the contract is signed; I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but I’m trying to make moves and keep things going.

VM: Would you get involved in a film set in a historical period during slavery?

NB: yeah, I’m not averse to that. It’s part of my history. You have to be sensitive with they way it’s done. I feel like we’ve done a lot of the same things and there’s other ground to cover. So yeah, if the script is good, I’m not like “no slavery ever!”

VM: How do you feel about becoming a so-called “celebrity” or “it girl”? Are you scared/interested in getting exposure in that regard?

NB: Ultimately, anyone that is doing something they enjoy, wants to have more opportunities. I think everything is always changing and fluctuating when it comes to the concept of “it” girl. I don’t see that for myself. I think you have to go to parties and do all that kind of stuff. I love what I do, and I’m constantly negotiating what it means to do this, and working with different people, and it’s been my dream for a minute. I plan on being here for a while, not necessarily to be a superstar.

I’ve been fortunate to work with Alfre Woodard and Jeffrey Wright; people who are artists, have careers, longevity and full lives. That looks good to me. I’m figuring out how to do this still. There are people I watch like Penelope Cruz; you look at her early work and look at her now. I want to grow man! That’s the goal. I want to get there, learning new things. But, you know, whatever God has for me in his plan, and God willing, I’ll be working [laughs].

NOT JUST SEX

Finding an actress who can convey nuance without uttering a line of dialogue is hard. Finding that kind of talent in someone who’s also willing to take off her clothes? That’s almost impossible.

“I had so many passes I couldn’t even tell you,” said Avy Kaufman, a casting director who faced precisely that challenge in casting the NC-17-rated “Shame,” Steve McQueen’s New York-set drama about a taciturn sex addict named Brandon (Michael Fassbender) that hits theaters Dec 2. “I was unbelievably frustrated.”

Kaufman is a veteran of her craft, having cast complicated productions such as “The Sixth Sense” and “Brokeback Mountain.” But she had a unique assignment from McQueen, who wanted top-quality performers even for tiny parts like Brandon’s fly-by-night sex partners. The idea was that those partners would propel the story forward via their silence, showing Brandon’s state of mind, or suggesting the history of their relationship with nothing more than a look or a gesture.

Perhaps the trickiest of those castings was for the character of “Hotel Lover,” a woman summoned by Brandon to a hotel in the middle of the afternoon. In the scene, “Hotel Lover” has sex with Brandon standing up, against a floor-to-ceiling window, and utters only a quick line of dialogue afterward (about her earrings).

Kaufman — who would put prospective actresses at ease by having young, Fassbender-ish men from her office read with them — located Amy Hargreaves, a stage and screen actress who has gone on to a recurring part on Showtime’s “Homeland.” She and Fassbender prepared for their scene, well, the only way one might: by smoking a cigarette and downing a shot of tequila. “I’m so proud of what we did in the film,” Hargreaves said, then added with a laugh, “Though I’m glad it’s getting an NC-17 — my parents will never see it.”

Another actress, Lucy Walters, appears in the opening and closing moments of “Shame” as a newlywed with whom Brandon eye-flirts on the subway. She doesn’t get a word of dialogue but manages to communicate with her looks and her gestures the arc that Fassbender’s character has taken over the course of the film.

“It’s super-easy to have a charged scene with someone as relaxed or as sexy as Michael Fassbender,” Walters said. “But there’s a lot more going on there than just sex.”

Carey Mulligan on Evading Arrest and the Tattoo That Won Her Shame

By Kyle Buchanan

Whatever the Frank Sinatra staple "New York, New York" means to you — whether it's a rousing theme song for the city, a karaoke classic, or mere sonic wallpaper — it won't be the same after Carey Mulligan gets done with it in Steve McQueen's new drama Shame. Her yowling, damaged singer Sissy has been attempting to reconnect with chilly sex addict brother Brandon (Michael Fassbender) to no avail, but 30 minutes into the movie, when Brandon reluctantly shows up to one of Sissy's gigs at the Boom Boom Room, she steps up to the mike and delivers a devastating, intimate rendition of "New York, New York" so full of weary pain that it brings tears to the eyes of her emotionally closed-off sibling (and potentially, the audience). It's an unexpected moment both for her train wreck of a character and for Mulligan herself; after leaning hard on her winning naïveté for roles in Drive, Never Let Me Go, and An Education (for which she was Oscar nominated), Mulligan finally gets to play a woman who knows way too much. She spoke to Vulture about how she made it happen, and a tattoo was involved.

You’ve said that you begged and begged Steve McQueen for the part. Was he resistant to casting you?
You know what? Someone said to me on the phone in my last interview, “It’s so nice to see you doing a role like this, because you were kind of getting into your comfort zone there for a minute.” I was like, “Wow, okay, all right!” [Laughs.] But I think the work that anyone has seen from me has been these middle-class, comfortable people or quiet and sensitive types, and I haven’t really played anything onscreen over the last couple of years that’s been as extroverted as Sissy in Shame. So I don’t think I was the obvious choice for Steve, and yeah, I had to beg him.

How did that go down?
I met him at the hotel he was staying at — I was back in London for the London Film Festival — and I had read the script and I met him for coffee. And he kept on trying to leave! It had been ten minutes, and he said, “All right then,” and got up, and I was like, “Uhhh,” so I kept on trying to engage him in coversation. You know, Steve is an artist, and he’s very much of the mind-set that actors are artists, too, and everything around that is superfluous. We’re meant to create things, and that means taking away vanity and taking away the machine that surrounds it — though that [publicity] is a necessary thing and a good thing, because it gets people to watch the films that you do.

So he was talking about that, and he was like, “You’re an artist, you’re an artist!” And I said to Steve, “You know, I played Nina in The Seagull a couple of years ago, and I’ve never found a role onscreen that’s matched how difficult it was and how much I loved doing that part and how much it stayed with me. There’s no equivalent, and nothing I’ve done onscreen has been as hard or as interesting or as fun to do.” And then I read Shame and I was like, “She’s practically related to Nina, they’re like cousins, almost the same person. If I feel the way that I felt when I played Nina, I can play this onscreen,” which I’ve never been able to do, because I’m quite uncomfortable around cameras.

So I said that to Steve, and I said, “I’ve been thinking about getting this seagull tattoo on my wrist as a reminder, because there’s this brilliant thing Nina says in Act Four when she comes back and she’s completely f&%$#& up — she’s had a child with this writer and she’s lost the baby and she’s lived in abject poverty, and she comes back and she’s fraught but she’s got this clarity — and she says, ‘I know now that it’s not about fame or glory or all the things I used to dream about. It’s the ability to endure, to bear your cross and keep the faith. I do have faith, and when I think about my vocation, I’m not afraid of life.’” [Beaming.] And I thought, That’s so sick! And it’s stayed with me, and when I told him about that little passage, he got excited and was like, “Yeeeah!” and I’m like, “I’ll get a tattoo!” and he’s like, “Great!” So it was sort of raucous and I got a call a couple of hours later that he was offering me the job, and I think it was only because I told him I was getting a tattoo. [Laughs.] I got the tattoo the following morning.

Have you watched the movie? How do you feel watching yourself play a woman who's so exposed, like a raw nerve?
I’ve only seen it once, because I’ve been down in Australia doing Gatsby, so I haven’t been out to any of the premieres — the boys did all the film festivals, and I was so sad not to go with them. So I’ve seen it once, but I didn’t watch the first scene, because I’m naked in it. Ugh. Literally, my worst nightmare. Watching yourself onscreen is bad enough, but watching yourself onscreen naked? It’s just a f#%@#&! nightmare. But doing the film was a very cathartic experience. I was acting with Michael Fassbender — a complete dream — and we had these whirlwind fight scenes and we filmed a lot at night, so when I’d leave and get in a cab and go back to my apartment, I’d be wired. Like, I couldn’t sleep, I was so excited. It was great, I loved it.

Sissy's constantly trying to provoke a reaction out of her brother, and she throws everything at him that she can, no matter how inappropriate it is.
Steve always says that women get lost in these movies, so he would always try to goad me into matching Michael, and really, I could never do that. He really is incredible, and I admire him so much. He's one of my heroes, really, as an actor. So I thought, I'm going to try really hard to give as much as I'm getting, to push him like he's pushing me. We had so much fun, and Steve was so excited all the time, and that sort of spurred us on. He'd come in after a take and say, "f&#!! It's like f#%@#&! Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire in here! Awesome!" So you'd go in and do another one, and it would get wild and out of control.

Last night, my best friend in the world said to me, "Sissy is you in extremis. It's the ugliest that I've seen you, and I've seen you that way." Not that I've ever done anything that she ... well, I have done a few of the things she's done. I have got horribly drunk before. I have cried on the phone to a boyfriend before. And [my friend] has seen all those things. So it was awesomely freeing to be able to do that character. I've had those moments before where I just get lost in a mess, where I'm just a complete mess.

Is there a certain thrill to just f#%@#&! with Michael Fassbender until he reacts to you?
It's fun to have a big fight. I have an older brother, and we used to beat the s$#! out of each other when we were kids. Like, we used to damage each other. I've never played a character with a brother before, ever, and obviously it's a little strange because she's naked all the time, but it was fun to play that. The brother-sister relationship is so amazing.

There's a lot of purposeful ambiguity around these characters and their backstories. Did you embrace that, or did you want to figure out something a little more concrete to help you play Sissy?
We all do our homework, and me and Steve and Michael definitely had conversations about where these characters came from. But that's the cool thing: I don't want to know that stuff, and it's not interesting to talk about that in a film, because it victimizes them in a way that it shouldn't. It's about the business of how they're handling where they are right now.

I assumed that Shame would be the most controversial film you starred in this year, but since Drive came out, we've had someone who threw a hot dog at Tiger Woods and blamed it on the movie, and there's that weird lawsuit where that woman is suing because she went to the movie —
— and thought it was going to be like The Fast and the Furious! I know, it's so funny!

The afterlife of that movie is so odd! What happened there?
I think it must be Nicolas [Winding Refn, the director].

I'm sure he's tickled by all these things.
He's so hilarious. We were in London together to do press for Drive on BBC Breakfast a month ago and went to the BBC. He'd never been to the BBC, and I've done some dramas for the BBC, but I'd never done BBC Breakfast, and it was a huge deal because every morning my parents switch on the TV and watch BBC Breakfast. We always had a thing of, "Maybe one day I'll get to sit on the sofa with Bill and Sian," the presenters, so I was psyched because it was a childhood dream. And then we get there and Nic shows up, and I say, "Nic, you cannot swear. This is live, it's nine o'clock in the morning, people have this on when they're eating their breakfast. You can't swear." He's like, "Yeah yeah yeah." I'm like, "Seriously, I'm not messing around. You cannot swear on BBC Breakfast." He's like, "Of course! Who do you think I am?"

The ironic thing is that there was this famous rocker who used to be a drug addict that went on before us, and he was flawless. We get on, and ten minutes into the interview, they ask a question about the violence in the film, and Nic's answer is, "Well, you know, violence is a lot like f#%@#&!." And the presenters freaked out.

Did your head go straight into your hands?
The thing is, I'm so used to this kind of behavior! We almost got arrested once in L.A.

What happened?
I used to drive him to and from work when we were doing the movie — I didn't work very much on Drive, I just came into work and stared at Ryan Gosling occasionally — and one day we shot until two in the morning. I'd never had Red Bull before, and I had, like, six of them that night, and I was like, "This is THE BEST THING, EVER!" So I was freaking out. We got in the car at the end of the night, and I had been wearing these shoes that really hurt, and I had pink fluffy slippers in the back of my car and I put them on; meanwhile, Nic had got sent a bunch of free tracksuits by Puma, so he had been wearing Puma tracksuits to work every day, and he looked hilarious.

So we got in my white Prius and we were driving out of downtown Los Angeles back to where he was living with his family, and I was trying to do the navigational thing while he was sitting next to me — he cannot drive, he's made a film about driving, but he cannot drive — and I'm so wired on Red Bull that I think my head's going to burst, so I'm, like, veering around in the road. There's no one around, it's two in the morning, but suddenly there are flashing lights and I get pulled over. The policeman comes round and I roll down the window and he tells me that I was weaving — which I was, since I was trying to figure out my nav guide — and I'm sitting there in my pink fluffy slippers, Nic's sitting there in his Puma tracksuit looking like a drug addict, and the policeman's like, "What are you doing?" And I say, "I'm not drunk I just had seventeen Red Bulls!!!” And Nic’s like, “We’re making a mooovie.” It was so uncomfortable, and the cop just looked at us like, we’re making a movie, really? We looked ridiculous. Thank God he didn’t want to do the paperwork and he let us go. [Laughs.]

“ At The Movies ”

Carey Mulligan on who's cooler: Michael Fassbender or Ryan Gosling?
Published Tuesday, Dec 6 2011, 4:52am EST | By Simon Reynolds

Of all the breakthrough movie stars of 2011, two actors stand out above the crowd: Michael Fassbender and Ryan Gosling.

Carey Mulligan (who saw her star rocket in 2010) has been fortunate enough to work with both Gos and Fass over the last 12 months - playing the object of 'The Driver's affection in Drive and Fassbender's wayward sister in upcoming sex addiction drama Shame.

Digital Spy recently talked to Mulligan about what makes both of them tick, and asked the impossible question: Who's cooler - Michael Fassbender or Ryan Gosling?

We don't want you to sit on the fence like Carey, though. Cast a vote on who you think is cooler (we've used pictures of them wearing sunglasses, just to illustrate coolness).

What Filming a Sex Scene is Really Like: DeeDee Luxe and Calamity Chang Explain 'Shame' Threesome
Shame Threesome

First Posted: 1/11/12 12:33 PM ET Updated: 1/12/12 06:49 PM ET

Michael Fassbender has gotten some deserved awards-season buzz for his towering role in "Shame" -- a film where he famously bared all. If you've seen the movie, you know Fassbender wasn't the only one to strip down for its gritty sex scenes -- perhaps the most memorable act involves his threesome with two women. So who are those women, exactly?

They're professional burlesque dancers DeeDee Luxe and Calamity Chang. I reached out to them separately, hoping to get the skinny on what really goes down during a Hollywood sex scene. Turns out, they've become fast friends since their on-camera tryst -- they immediately texted each other and decided on a spot where we could all meet.

And so it was at a swanky West Village wine bar that I found myself sandwiched between two gorgeous, glamorous women, giggling and sipping Malbec as we discussed on-screen vs. off-screen chemistry, first-time female-on-female makeout sessions, and what kind of a kisser Fassbender is. Girls will be girls, as it happens -- here are eight things I learned, straight from the source.

1. YOUR DIRECTOR MAY GET A LITTLE BASHFUL, EVEN IF YOU'RE NOT

Did you have to take off your clothes for the audition?

Calamity Chang: Yes. But [director Steve McQueen] was so polite, he was like, "Uh, I'm going to turn this way, just let me know when you're ready." [DeeDee laughs] You know, like, we're accustomed to being naked in public!

You're accustomed to being naked, but not FULLY naked right?

DeeDee Luxe: I am. But that being said, I guess doing that when you're not on a stage -- instantly I felt comfortable with him. If I didn't, I wouldn't have done the movie.

On the day of shooting, was it nerve-wracking having a bunch of crew members watch you?

DDL: It was a closed set. It was Steve, the filmographer Sean Bobbitt...

CC: So there were really five of us in the room.

I was going to say -- and then you're going to lunch with all of them!

DDL: Honestly, I don't think I would've had a problem with that.

CC: Me neither!

DDL: Once you get in the scene, you block it out. Just like when you're on the stage. I'll get nervous right before I go on, and I think that I felt the same way before we shot the scene, but once we started doing it you really get into your character.

CC: I think it says a lot about Steve's decorum and respect for the actors that he's working with -- to have it closed. We would've done it anyway, because that's what we signed up for.

2. CONSIDERATION IS KEY

What did you each do to prepare for being naked on camera?

DDL: Shower and shave! [Calamity laughs]

CC: I shave, I moisturize. Brush your teeth. We brought gum.

DDL: Yeah, we brought mints and stuff.

CC: Michael was doing that, too ... he was using the little toothbrush thing.

DDL: We were all very conscious of that. They made us break for dinner and I was like, "No! We already freshened up! Now I gotta go eat?"

CC: Yeah, so we were like, "No garlic, no red onions or anything."

3. GET TO KNOW YOUR COWORKERS BEFORE YOU GET TO KNOW YOUR COWORKERS

Did you two hang out before the scene was filmed?

Calamity: Yeah, and I'd heard of DeeDee before I knew her and so when we were both picked for the roles by the person from the burlesque agency, she said, "Oh, well, DeeDee Luxe is going to be your partner." So then we synched up. DeeDee came by to my show ... and we chatted really quickly, and I was so glad because I didn't know who I was going to be acting with, if she was going to be some crazy, like --

DDL: You were so chill!

CC: And you were too!

DDL: It was pretty much we got cast and they were like, "Can you do it Friday?" It was like, "All right! I don't have time to get my nails done!" It was like, bam! I think that's kind of how [McQueen] operates. He likes to have people just ... you know, real.

The casting director has mentioned how difficult it was to get people to be in this movie -- and I'm sure part of it is that people had to take it on faith that the subject of sexual addiction was going to be handled properly. And if you're not someone from the film world or you don't know about Steve's material, it could be scary.

CC: I did my research before. I looked him up. And of course I knew who Michael Fassbender was because of "Inglourious Basterds." So I knew that this is a real film, this is not like the casting couch for a porno.

How did they pitch the movie to you?

CC: They said the film is a major film by an award-winning director. They didn't give us any names until we were selected.

DDL: I know after I left I had a little packet they gave me, all stuff about Michael, and I had already looked up Steve ... and I was really impressed. So I knew he was an artist.

So you both met the night before the scene, but how did you meet Michael? The day of shooting?

DDL: We met while we were in hair and make-up.

CC: We introduced ourselves and then we just sat there and did our hair and make-up, and we chitchatted.

DDL: He's human, he's meeting people for the first time too and he's going to be naked -- so I think we all made each other feel comfortable, because we were casual and we were joking around. Between takes we'd just sit on the bed and talk about stuff. It didn't hurt either that it was easy to make out with him.

4. EVEN PROFESSIONALS CAN BE FIRST-TIMERS

CC: If anything, I was more nervous about making out with DeeDee because I've never made out with a girl. This was the first threesome -- in every sense of the word, in real life or on film -- I've ever had! So with Michael I was like, "Oh, whatever it's just a guy."

Did you tell DeeDee that before the scene?

CC: I told her that the night that we first met.

Did you guys just kiss and get it out of the way before you were on camera?

CC: No, we waited until we were on camera.

5. HAVING A BURLESQUE BACKGROUND GIVES YOU AN EDGE

DDL: Our scene was re-shot ... it was originally shot with two different actresses and Steve didn't like how it turned out, so they re-cast it.

I wonder if those other actresses had burlesque experience -- I bet that really made a difference.

CC: She and I have the same energy. I think going into it we were comfortable with our bodies and we weren't too worried about how we'd be portrayed.

DDL: I think because we're performance artists that nudity to us isn't a big deal. But he's an artist and we're artists and it just felt really natural.

And as far as the scene goes -- how much direction did Steve give you before you went in there, and then during filming? Was he calling stuff out to you or did he just let you do your thing?

DDL: At certain points he would be like, "Move this way" or "Just keep doing what you're doing" or maybe "Change angles a little bit." I'd say at certain points we collaborated, we talked it out.

CC: It was really funny because DeeDee and I were like, "OK -- this is what we're going to do to, Michael." [laughs] "We're going to kiss each other, and then you're going to go that way and I'm going to go this way, and then we're going to switch." But that's the burlesque side of us coming out, because we were choreographing it like an act.

6. SOME OF THE NUDITY INVOLVED MOVIE MAGIC (AND RESULTED IN AMNESIA!)

Were you guys covered at all during the scene, or were you completely naked?

DDL: We were covered. They gave everybody flesh-colored panties.

CC: Why do people always ask that? It's so weird.

I mean, it's clear that there are angles -- that things are shot a certain way and there's a certain amount of movie magic, but there are some parts where you all get in there, and it makes a person curious! I remember there's a part with you, Calamity, where Michael just sticks his face in your butt.

CC: Was that my butt? No, it was your butt. [Nods to DeeDee]

DDL: [laughs] Oh yeah, no, it was my butt. [DeeDee and Calamity laugh]

Sorry! At a certain point there are just body parts flying! I remember watching it and thinking, "How did they do that without DOING that?"

DeeDee: I said that too, because I was like, "When did that happen?" [DeeDee and Calamity laugh]

7. THE LIVELINESS ISN'T RESERVED FOR THE MOMENTS BETWEEN "ACTION" AND "CUT"

What happened when you guys cut during the scene?

CC: We always high-fived each other and were always like, "Great job!" They were so cool, they just hung out.

DDL: Yeah, we'd joke around and talk smack. We had to be there at 6 p.m. for hair and make-up ... and then, I don't know when we started, maybe two hours later? Until like two in the morning.

CC: I think we all had a really good time. We were all very comfortable with each other and we joked around -- there was rapport. Because there was a couple of takes that we all started making out before the cameras started rolling, because we were like, "Oh, OK, let's start!" [Calamity and DeeDee laugh]

DDL: And then Steve would be like, "Guys -- I'm not rolling yet!"

8. IT'S YOUR DUTY TO KISS AND TELL

I don't mean to state the obvious, but you ladies are kind of the envy of women everywhere. You're one degree from Michael Fassbender -- you're the closest I'm ever going to be to the man! So you have to dish, because I'll never get to make out with him!

CC: He's a good kisser! His body's pretty cut.

DDL: Yeah, I agree.

James Badge Dale Talks SHAME, Director Steve McQueen, Robert Zemeckis’ FLIGHT, RUBICON, THE LONE RANGER, and a Lot More
by Steve 'Frosty' Weintraub Posted:January 20th, 2012 at 12:32 pm

James Badge Dale is one of those actors that while you know his work, you don’t yet know his name. However, I think that’s about to change. Because after starring in HBO’s The Pacific, AMC’s short lived but really well done Rubicon, and as Michael Fassbender’s friend and boss in Steve McQueen‘s Shame, Dale has shown his versatility and range and he’s become one of those actors that I can’t wait to see what he’ll do next. And with his roles in Joe Carnahan‘s The Grey, Robert Zemeckis‘ Flight, Marc Forster‘s World War Z alongside Brad Pitt, and Gore Verbinski‘s The Lone Ranger, it looks like I’m not the only one who is a fan of his work.

Last week I got to sit down with Dale for an extended interview at The Grey junket. Since I spoke to him on camera for The Grey before this interview, I decided to use this time to ask other questions. We talked about how he got into acting, does he still have to audition, what making Shame was like (he tells some great behind the scenes stories), Rubicon (for fans of the show he talks about a different final episode that was never shot), how he had to fight to be in Robert Zemeckis’ Flight and what he did to land the role, comments on McQueen’s Twelve Years a Slave, and discusses The Lone Ranger. He calls it a “big, fun Western” with “a different take on it.” Hit the jump for more.

Since I know many of you might not have the time to watch an almost twenty minute interview, here’s a few of the highlights. Also, the entire interview is time indexed below so you can watch the parts that interest you.

Finally, a huge thank you to James Badge Dale for giving me so much time.

Director Steve McQueen uses long shots of six or seven minutes with no cuts.
Even after planning, McQueen likes to give opposing directions like, “If I told you to go right, go left.”
The restaurant scene in Shame is one long take.
The shot of James Badge Dale and Michael Fassbender watching Carey Mulligan sing was the first time they’d actually seen her sing.
Mulligan, who isn’t a singer, sang the song for the first time at 3AM
Actors and directors were encouraged to take risks when filming Rubicon.

Parkland might not be a box-office slam-dunk, but it continues Dale’s current run of superbly calibrated performances. He points to Steve McQueen’s Shame, the 2011 movie in which he played the skeevy boss to Michael Fassbender’s sex addict, as a crucial artistic turning point. “Steve McQueen and Fassbender were the ones who gave me a lot of confidence in my own instincts,” says Dale. “Steve was like, ‘I didn’t hire you to be somebody else. I hired you to bring what you bring to it. You’re an artist. Take risks and fail. Don’t ever play it safe with me. That’s the way Fassbender works too. I learned a lot from them.”
