2 for the Show

22 August 2008 1:59 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

"I've built my career on being an asshole," asserts Steve Coogan. "And if you're happy being an asshole, it's freeing. You end up quite cool." "The end run to coolness," quips Elisabeth Shue. Coogan and Shue are successful actors, and so, despite their lighthearted banter, they know about the vagaries of acting and the pain of rejection. Shue admits, "Being an actress is extremely humiliating." Shue and Coogan co-star in filmmaker Andrew Fleming's Hamlet 2, released next week nationwide, so these are topics close to their hearts. Indeed, most actors can find something to identify with in the film. Part satire, part valentine, Hamlet 2 recounts the comic misadventures of Dana Marschz (Coogan), failed-actor-turned-high school drama teacher who transforms his "high risk" students into the hot musical-theatre cast of a singing, dancing, politically incorrect sequel to Shakespeare's tale.

Going where the money is, Allen has moved his latest production from London to Barcelona, where the sunny landscape and Antoni Gaudi's spectacular architecture seem to have provided the inspiration he's largely been lacking since, »

DeNiro + Hoffman Snub Allen Film

6 June 2008 12:21 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Robert De Niro, Jack Nicholson and Dustin Hoffman refused to star in a movie by filmmaker Woody Allen because they were not offered enough money.

The Oscar-winning moviemaker claims the Hollywood actors snubbed the chance to star in one of his movies, because he could not match their huge salaries.

He says, "There are plenty of actors and actresses that have said - even after saying 'I'm dying to work with you so I'd do anything' - that they're not available or they can't work for the pay I'm offering because they have a chance to make a movie for GBP4 million or GBP5 million and they need the money."

"For Deconstructing Harry I tried to get De Niro, I tried to get Hoffman, I tried to get Elliot Gould."

Allen claims Nicholson and Tom Hanks both turned down roles in The Curse Of The Jade Scorpion. »
