This week, the 26-year-old actor stopped by HuffPo Live where he was asked about filming the 1999 film The Sixth Sense with Willis. Unlike some other stars who've suggested Willis is hard to work with, Osment only had kind words for the 59-year-old actor.
"I guess I'm lucky," Osment said. "I don't have to be diplomatic because I had a great experience with him. When we were in The Sixth Sense, I think everybody was in the mode of like, 'All right, we have this wonderful thing, let's not mess it up.' So everybody was in a good place. [Director M. Night Shyamalan] created a great atmosphere on the set. Bruce was having fun making that movie."
"I feel bad for those guys because apparently they had a terrible experience but I had a good one," Osment added. "He was nice to me. »
Chicago – The headline is a quote (“Don’t say that you love me!”) from Fleetwood Mac’s song “Tusk,” which Kevin Smith gratefully includes in his film of the same name. The movie is either the most outrageous audacity of the year or a blatant middle finger from Smith to the audience. You decide.
I liked it, I hated it, I was mesmerized by some of the lengths the story took to stay on track. There were times during the proceedings where it seemed like the whole thing was a fraud, in the sense that Wizard-of-Oz like, Smith was going to walk on camera and say, “ha, dopes, you fell for it” (but he would have said something more piquant than “dopes”). The film defies logic, definition or a basis in dreamland, but it makes up in chutzpah, which has never been lacking in Kevin Smith. Whatever the final analysis will be, »

Is Bruce Willis difficult to work with? Haley Joel Osment doesn't think so! This week, the 26-year-old actor stopped by HuffPo Live where he was asked about filming the 1999 film The Sixth Sense with Willis. Unlike some other stars who've suggested Willis is hard to work with, Osment only had kind words for the 59-year-old actor. "I guess I'm lucky," Osment said.

Everybody had pretty much given up on Kevin Smith. If you were like me you adored Clerks and Mallrats and the others when you were in high school, immersing yourself in the vulgarities of the View Askewniverse and buying up Jay and Silent Bob merchandise while re-watching each movie re-issue with the treasure trove of special features on all the DVDs. Then, probably around the time of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, something happened. We all kind of just gave up on Kevin Smith. Perhaps we “grew up” and got over his potty humor. Perhaps we thought the relative quality of the movies he was choosing to make (ahem, Jersey Girl) from then on seemed to be out of touch with what got us into his twisted humor in the first place. Then after that, despite a worthy and legitimately great sentimental return to form with Clerks II, it »

Kevin Smith's midnight movie Tusk was apparently inspired by a story told on the podcast Smith hosts with longtime collaborator Scott Mosier, but don't let that fool you: This is clearly the writer-director’s own nightmare about losing his voice. The onetime enfant terrible of Jersey strip-malls made his name with that voice. Smith is a talker, and he makes movies about talkers: In Clerks, Mallrats, Dogma, and Chasing Amy, his characters held the world at bay with nonstop barriers of language, through their joking and riffing and snarking.The protagonist of Tusk is just another variation on those guys, an irritatingly self-absorbed motormouth named Wallace (a mustachioed Justin Long) who hosts a podcast devoted to dumb stuff on the internet with his pal Teddy (an unexpectedly chubby Haley Joel Osment). He travels to Winnipeg to interview a young man dubbed the Kill Bill Kid (à la the real-life »

Directed by: Kevin Smith
Running Time: 1 hr 42 mins
Release Date: September 19, 2014 (Chicago)
Plot: A podcaster (Long) is turned into a walrus when he meets a strange Canadian (Parks).
Just as Tusk was brought into our world, so does the film itself begins with a podcast. Wallace (Justin Long) and Teddy (Haley Joel Osment) are two toking jokesters who have a big following with their Not-See Party podcast, a petty Third Reich pun that stands for their shtick in which Wallace meets eclectic people, and then tells Teddy about his experience on-air. Wallace travels to Canada to meet an internet sensation named “The Kill Bill Kid,” who infamously filmed himself accidentally cutting off his leg while practicing sword moves. »

If you're a Kevin Smith junkie, as I am, you'll appreciate the verbal pinwheels he spins around the horror genre in Tusk. If not, go dull your brain cells at Hollywood multiplex gunk. Tusk feels as offhand and undercooked as a podcast, which is how it started for Smith, so the jokes are hit-and-miss. Justin Long impresses as Wallace, half of an L.A. podcasting team – Teddy (Haley Joel Osment) is the other – specializing in the bizarre. That leads Wallace to Winnipeg, where he meets wealthy recluse Howard Howe (Michael Parks, »
“Oh my Lord, this is gonna be so fun for me because I am so baked!”
That was how filmmaker Kevin Smith introduced his latest movie, “Tusk,” to a packed house at the Vista Theatre in Hollywood at a special screening Tuesday night. Fresh off its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival, where critics and audiences hailed the quirky flick as a return to form for Smith, A24 opens the film in theaters nationwide this Friday.
The horror-comedy tells the story of a podcaster named Wallace (Justin Long) who travels to Canada in search of an interview and is instead held captive by a madman (Michael Parks) who aims to surgically transform him into a walrus.The idea actually came about after a man in Brighton, England, put out an ad offering free rent to anyone willing to dress in a walrus suit and pretend to be said animal for two hours a day. »

Gone are Haley Joel Osment's days of playing the adorable Forrest Junior in Forrest Gump. Now, the grown-up former child star, 26, is taking on very different roles. Osment made headlines last week when he was seen after a shocking movie makeover, playing a greasy-looking Canadian Nazi sympathizer in the upcoming movie Yoga Hosers, which is the sequel to this month's drama Tusk. "I play a real person — a comic version of a real person — named Adrien Arcand, who was the Canadian fuhrer in the '30s, [...] »
Forget seeing dead people. Haley Joel Osment.dressed as a Nazi.was quite a jarring sight to behold!
Fortunately, the former child star, now 26, was in character for his role in Kevin Smith's movie Yoga Hosers. Still, though, as he explained on Access Hollywood, his on-set ensemble was "not a popular look, the armband and everything, but there was a reason for wearing it."
"That's why my voice is kind of messed up, because all last week I was in downtown Los Angeles screaming Nazi things, which oddly the Internet took notice of," said the Sixth Sense star.
"It is kind of funny as back in the day if someone took a picture of you walking around dressed as a Nazi, the context wouldn't be clear," he said, "But luckily, on Twitter everyone was like ''Oh, Ok, it's a Kevin Smith movie.'"
From the singular mind of writer/director and podcaster Kevin Smith, and conceived from one of Smith’s own Smodcast’s, Tusk is a story unlike anything that has ever been committed to screen before. A tale that is equal parts hilarious and horrifying, Tusk will stay with you long after the credits roll.

The film stars Long as a radio presenter with a love of interviewing strange and interesting people.
He is lured to Canada to meet the reclusive adventurer Howard Howe (Michael Parks), only to find himself the victim of the walrus-obsessed man's crazed experiments.
The idea behind the film came from a joke on Smith's own podcast. He subsequently asked Twitter followers to vote on whether or not the film should be made.

Tusk will be released September 19 in the Us. A UK release date is yet to be announced. »
It’s the film born out of a podcast.
Kevin Smith got the idea for his latest project, Tusk, from an ad on the UK classified site Gumtree. When he read the posting on his SModcast podcast, Smith thought it would be a great idea for a movie like no other and asked his listeners to take to Twitter to voice their opinions on the film using #WalrusYes or #WalrusNo.
Smith has said the resounding support (with only one alleged #WalrusNo vote) pushed him to take his man-becomes-walrus movie into production. The film stars Justin Long and Haley Joel Osment as a pair of podcasters who explore the wacky and weird. When Long’s character Wallace treks across the border to the great White North, he stumbles upon a classified ad by the Most Interesting Man in the World, a traveler with tales to tell (played by character actor Michael Parks »

"Sixth Sense" star Haley Joel Osment started trending last week when he popped up on the streets of Los Angeles looking totally unrecognizable -- and now he's speaking out about his shocking appearance.Sporting a Hitler mustache and speaking in front of Nazi propaganda, the 26-year-old was a far cry from the adorable little moppet who used to see dead people.While it quickly became clear he was in costume for a new Kevin Smith movie, the actor still addressed his look in a new interview with "Access Hollywood Live.""It is kind of funny," he says. "Back in the day if someone took a picture of you walking around dressed as a Nazi the context wouldn't be clear, but luckily on Twitter everyone was like ''Oh, ok it's a Kevin Smith movie.'""It is not a popular look, the armband and everything but yeah there was a reason for wearing it, »

In the twenty years since his influential debut feature, Clerks, Kevin Smith has established himself as a singular voice in the American indie landscape with his wry observations of disaffected youth culture. With his 2011 horror film, Red State, and his new film, Tusk, Smith reinvents himself by bringing his comedic chops to a new, disturbing milieu. Wallace (Justin Long) co-hosts a popular podcast with his pal Teddy (Haley Joel Osment), focusing on cruel, mocking cringe humour as part of their mission to keep it “real and raunchy.” After his trip to Winnipeg to interview the “Kill Bill Kid” — a teen whose unfortunate samurai-sword video has gone viral — comes up empty, Wallace decides to make the trip worth his while and find a good story north of the forty-ninth parallel. A handwritten flyer he finds in a bar bathroom leads him to a grizzled old swab (Michael Parks) full »
Title: Tusk Director: Kevin Smith Starring: Justin Long, Michael Parks, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez and Johnny Depp Truly understanding other people’s pain and inability to cope with the agonizing experiences they’ve faced throughout their lives is a challenge many people are unable to understand, until they’ve witnessed their agony first-hand. The new horror film ‘Tusk,’ which was written and directed by Kevin Smith, is a prime and exhilarating example of how people, even as they mature and grow older, can joke, and even take pleasure in, other people’s misfortune. The movie smartly emphasizes that until a person is intimately shown the distressing past of even one other person, and [ Read More ]

Before Tusk is released to theaters on September 19th, we’ll have our review and interviews to give readers an idea of what to expect from the latest Kevin Smith movie. Until then, we have a look at a brand new clip, showing Justin Long’s character arriving in Canada:
“Tusk follows Wallace (Long), a journalist on a mission. He finds the story of a lifetime in Mr. Howe (Parks), a worldwide adventurer with amazing tales and a curious penchant for walruses.”
Tusk is directed and written by Kevin Smith, based on a conversation he had with friend Scott Mosier in the 259th episode of SModcast, titled The Walrus & The Carpenter. The film stars Justin Long as Wallace the journalist, Michael Parks as the walrus-obsessed Mr. Howe, Haley Joel Osment as Wallace’s best friend, and Genesis Rodriguez as Wallace’s girlfriend.

Like it or not, Kevin Smith has carved out his own niche in the world of cinema and I respect his decision to utilize his dedicated fanbase to make the movies he wants to make, rather than churning out studio garbage such as his 2010 feature, Cop Out. Tusk is his second venture into this latest stage in his career and, having not yet seen Red State, my first experience with something of a "new" Smith, a filmmaker that hasn't abandoned his comedic origins, but instead twisted his brand of comedy into the horror genre. The result is a movie that I didn't particularly enjoy or find funny, but still have to give credit where due, as I'd rather see more filmmakers making what they want to make and telling the stories they want to tell, instead of whatever second rate studio script lands on their desk. Tusk centers on Wallace »
