Vulture is reporting that an offer has gone out to Oscar winner Marion Cotillard to play Morgana in director David Dobkin’s Arthur & Lancelot. For those unfamiliar with Morgana from the Arthur Legend I pulled this from Wikipedia: “The stereotypical image of Morgan is often that of a villainess: a seductive, megalomaniacal sorceress who wishes to overthrow Arthur. Contemporary interpretations of the Arthurian myth (notably the film Excalibur) sometimes assign to Morgan the role of seducing Arthur and giving birth to the wicked Mordred, though traditionally Mordred's mother was Morgause, another sister. In these works Mordred is often her pawn, used to bring about the end of the Arthurian age. In Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court Morgan le Fay is an archetypical corrupt and cruel feudal aristocrat, keeping prisoners for decades in her dungeon.” Since her win for Best Actress at the Oscar a few »
I'm always curious about movie buffs on the West Coast. It's like another planet to me despite being such an origin spot for my life's obsession. So today we're chatting with Vinci in West Hollywood.
Nathaniel: When did you start reading Tfe?
Vinci: I think it was about 2004/2005. I'm not sure. But I do recall questioning you on why you didn't consider Vera Farmiga as a Best Actress contender for Down to the Bone, so it was at least by then. You were one of the first Oscar sites I visited (the now defunct EverythingOscar was the other). I grew up in a small town before the internet and didn't have friends who were even casually interested in the Oscars, actors or even movies like myself. I felt a kinship with you. I stuck around because you write well and cover a lot of what interests me.
Do you remember your first movie or obsession? »
