'Ray' vs. 'Saw': Hit the road, hack

29 October 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Halloween is Sunday, and Hollywood is ready for another weekend of fright. But while Lions Gate Films' Saw and the second week of Sony Pictures' The Grudge should attract their share of fans, the likely winner for the frame is anything but horror fare. Instead, Universal Pictures' biopic about the late Ray Charles is on track to take the top spot. Ray, which Universal acquired in March from Phil Anschutz's Bristol Bay Prods., features a remarkable performance from Jamie Foxx that already has awards handicappers talking Oscar. Playing the legendary musician, Foxx spent 14-hour days with his eyes sealed shut to make the performance more realistic. The PG-13 film, directed by Taylor Hackford (Proof of Life, La Bamba) and co-starring Kerry Washington and Regina King, already has been well received, and Universal is expecting a long theater life. Ray is tracking strong and has seen interest percolate among blacks of all ages, women and older men. Industry insiders put the film's opening weekend in the high-teen millions and possibly into the $20 million range, depending on how Halloween affects Sunday grosses. »

Quaid Thanks Crowe for Humiliating Him

30 January 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor Dennis Quaid has thanked Russell Crowe for stealing his wife Meg Ryan, because it forced him to realize their troubled marriage was in ruins. The Far From Heaven star - who divorced Ryan in July 2001 after a 10-year union - admits he felt "humiliated" when the Australian hunk had an affair with his wife on the set of Proof Of Life, but accepts Crowe ultimately played a vital part in his long-term happiness. Quaid says, "I think he was a bit surprised when I thanked him. But, looking back over the past two years, I think Russell did Meg and I a big favor. He forced us to face up to something, because we were clinging on to a dead relationship. I felt hurt and humiliated, of course, but we hadn't been getting on for quite some time. We were bored with each other." »
