Ray Winstone’s BAFTA Talk On Tough Guys, ‘Noah’ & Working With Scorsese

5 October 2014 2:07 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

BAFTA’s latest Life In Pictures conversation featured British screen icon Ray Winstone, who proved a big draw despite the unseasonably warm October afternoon. With no new title to stump for (although he did mention his upcoming childhood-focused autobiography Young Winstone), the veteran instead entertained the crowd with a freewheeling look at his four-decade-long career, which includes prominent roles in films such as Noah, The Departed, and Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull.

While he had plenty of quips about his adventures in Hollywood – including an uncanny Martin Scorsese impression – Winstone spoke passionately about his work in British cinema.

Famous for playing East End tough guys – “My wife asked me why I always walk in a room looking like I’m going to kill someone” – Winstone waxed lyrical about Gary Oldman’s work directing him in the gritty 1997 drama Nil By Mouth.

That film unflinchingly looks at »

Bob Hoskins' finest role? | @guardianletters

1 May 2014 4:45 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

When Bob Hoskins (Obituaries, 1 May) took the part of Ray Johnson in the film of Last Orders, he anxiously apologised to me for not having the physique. He had to play a small, slight man, a follower of horses with the lifelong dream of being a jockey. Bob was short, but huge across the shoulders. He needn't have worried, since he turned in one of his finest, most tenderly nuanced and humorous roles, a role I'll think of as his memorial.

On set he was enormous fun. He called me "sunshine". He called everyone, male or female, "girls". But he was scrupulously professional. I remember one close-up "take", when everything was ready, camera and sound were rolling, but Bob did nothing. He didn't speak or move, he froze. The whole set froze. Finally, the inimitable voice piped up to director Fred Schepisi: "Well give me an 'action' then."

R.I.P. Bob Hoskins, 1942-2014

30 April 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Bob Hoskins, the celebrated English actor who brought gravitas and a wicked smile to any genre he worked in, from crime thrillers like The Long Good Friday to fantasy comedies such as Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Hook, died from pneumonia Tuesday. He was 71.

The actor claimed to have never taken any acting lessons – according to him, he was waiting at a theatre bar for a friend to finish an audition when someone gave him a script and said, “You’re next.” He scored the part at that audition and soon after, the short-statured Hoskins became a giant on the stage and screen, beloved by audiences around the world.

Hoskins appeared in various UK television series and mini-series during the 1970s, when he also found a calling on the British stage. However, the actor broke through on the big screen in the 1980s. His first major role was in the »

R.I.P. Bob Hoskins

30 April 2014 7:11 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

British acting legend Bob Hoskins has died of pneumonia at the age of 71. Hoskins' agent confirmed to the BBC that he died on Tuesday in hospital, surrounded by family.

With over a hundred credits to his name across film and television, Hoskins announced his retirement from acting in 2012 after being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. His final films were British comedy "Outside Bet" and big-budget fantasy feature "Snow White and the Huntsmen".

Hoskins will be remembered far more though for his memorable turns in films such as "Who Framed Roger Rabbit," "The Long Good Friday," "Mona Lisa," "The Honorary Consul," "Brazil," "Hook," "Nixon," "The Cotton Club," "Twenty Four Seven," "Super Mario Bros.," "Last Orders," "Mermaids," "Mrs. Henderson Presents," "Unleashed," "Hollywoodland," "Doomsday," "Enemy at the Gates," "The Wall" and TV productions like "Pennies from Heaven," "On the Move," "The Lost World" and "The Street".

Hoskins had a dry sense of humor, famously »

Berlin — Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay are set to star in rising British helmer Andrew Haigh’s “45 Years,” which is being repped in international markets by The Match Factory. Haigh is the director and exec producer of the well-received HBO show “Looking.”

“45 Years,” which will start to shoot this spring, follows Kate Mercer in the five days leading up to her 45th wedding anniversary. The planning for the party is going well, but then a letter arrives for her husband. The body of his first love has been discovered, frozen and preserved in the icy glaciers of the Swiss Alps. By the time the party is upon them, five days later, there may not be a marriage left to celebrate.

Haigh adapted the screenplay from a short story by the poet David Constantine. Tristan Goligher is producing for The Bureau. The pic has received coin from the BFI Film Fund, »
