Alan Rickman on why he nearly turned Die Hard down

19 April 2015 10:09 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

"I'm not doing an action movie", said Alan Rickman of Die Hard. But here's why he did...

Alan Rickman's second film as director, A Little Chaos, is currently playing in UK cinemas. Last week, he was on the promotional trail for the movie, and as part and parcel of that, he was interviewed as part of a BAFTA event dedicated to his film work. As you might expect, Die Hard was mentioned, and Rickman revealed that he very nearly turned the movie down.

"I didn't know anything about L.A.. I didn't know anything about the film business... I'd never made a film before, but I was extremely cheap", he said. Yet when he first read the screenplay, his reaction was "what the hell is this? I'm not doing an action movie".

Yet the script won him over for a number of reasons in the end, with its wit one factor. »

Alan Rickman nearly turned down Hans Gruber role in Die Hard

18 April 2015 10:54 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Alan Rickman has revealed that he nearly turned down the role of Hans Gruber in Die Hard.

Speaking to BAFTA (via The Guardian), Rickman said when he first read the script for the Bruce Willis film, he thought: "What the hell is this? I'm not doing an action movie."

He added: "I didn't know anything about La. I didn't know anything about the film business… I'd never made a film before, but I was extremely cheap."

Rickman also said that he admired the "progressive" nature of the film's script.

He explained: "Every single black character in that film is positive and highly intelligent. So, 28 years ago, that's quite revolutionary, and quietly so."

During the same BAFTA talk he revealed the young actors in the Harry Potter film series Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint were often replaced by "very small adult actors" during filming. »

Kevin James Teases Fake Spinoff 'Game of Thrones of Queens' on 'Letterman'

17 April 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

These days, Kevin James does most of his work in film  – starring in goofy comedies like Zookeeper and the upcoming Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2. But as he explained to David Letterman on Thursday's Late Show, he longs for the "routine" of the TV sitcom format he enjoyed on The King of Queens. In the above segment, he reveals his upcoming (fake) return to the small screen with Game of Thrones of Queens, a joke spin-off of the HBO fantasy series. 

"We've already started production," James says, cutting to a »

Alan Rickman Says 'Die Hard' Was "Quite Revolutionary," But Admits He Almost Turned It Down

16 April 2015 9:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In the pantheon of great villains, Alan Rickman's delicious Hans Gruber from "Die Hard" ranks right up there. The baddie from the first, and best, movie in the franchise is a big ingredient for why it works so well — every hero needs a formidable foe, and the more colorful, the better — but Rickman recently revealed that he nearly didn't take the part. “I didn’t know anything about La. I didn’t know anything about the film business … I’d never made a film before, but I was extremely cheap,” the theatre-trained Rickman said at BAFTA (via The Guardian) about his earliest foray in Hollywood. And he certainly wasn't taken with script at first, recalling that he thought, “What the hell is this? I’m not doing an action movie.” Read More: Survive Hard: All The Times John McClane Should Have Died In The 'Die Hard' Series »

12 Things You Didn’t Know About Zooey Deschanel

14 April 2015 1:48 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Matt Sayles/AP

Zooey Deschanel is everyone’s favourite loveable weirdo, with her main role playing the part of head-in-the-clouds school teacher Jess Day in New Girl on Fox.

The 35-year-old can play a whole range of roles, but she will be remembered for her quirky, often socially-awkward characters nailing the deadpan humour, and earning her a way towards a soft spot in the hearts of her fans.

Her acting career has dipped into three separate decades, and while New Girl is her biggest lead role, she’s featured in a range of box-office productions including: The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy and (500) Days Of Summer, while she’s starred as the main love interest for Jim Carrey in Yes Man, and Will Ferrell in the festive favourite, Elf.

New Girl is where most of her time is being invested, and she hasn’t featured in a film since medieval comedy, »
