Ed Lauter Exemplified Versatility, Authenticity in Character Actor’s Craft

28 January 2016 11:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Being one of the top character actors of American film and television must be the ultimate double-edged career sword.

On the one hand, if you’re good — and the late Ed Lauter was one of American cinema’s great character actors — you work all the time. On the other hand, as Lauter told Shock Cinema magazine back in 2010, “Sometimes people don’t know my name. They’ll say, ‘Oh, yeah! There’s that guy! You were in … Jesus Christ … you were in … in …’ So, in a way it’s good — and in a way it’s bad.”

Lauter was not alone in his plight. He and his fellow character actors who consistently deliver the goods have been a mainstay of American cinema since the days of the Hollywood’s “stock players,” a moniker that devalues the work of great performers from Hattie McDaniel to Peter Lorre, from Sidney Greenstreet to »

"Written and directed by four-time Oscar nominee Gary Ross (The Hunger Games, Seabiscuit, Pleasantville), and starring Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey. Free State Of Jones is an epic action-drama set during the Civil War, and tells the story of defiant Southern farmer, Newt Knight, and his extraordinary armed rebellion against the Confederacy. Banding together with other small farmers and local slaves, Knight launched an uprising that led Jones County, Mississippi to secede from the Confederacy, creating a Free State of Jones.

Matthew McConaughey Leads The Charge As A Freedom Fighter In First Free State Of Jones Trailer

11 January 2016 7:20 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Musket in hand and a fearless sense of leadership in tow, Matthew McConaughey spearheads a rebellion against the Confederacy in the rip-roaring first trailer for Free State of Jones, which has surfaced online for your viewing pleasure.

Thrusting McConaughey Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Keri Russell, and Mahershala Ali into the throes of the American Civil War, it’s the former star who toplines Gary Ross’ period drama as a downtrodden Southern farmer (Newton Knight), who sparks an uprising in Jones County. Less a Knight in shining armor and more of a grizzled, world-weary freedom fighter, McConaughey’s lead helped make history by setting up a tight-knit, mixed-race community that was unique to the Deep South at the time.

Drawing attention to the underlying racial tension and jaw-dropping set pieces, today’s trailer serves up a concise overview of the story without divulging too much, and we’re intrigued to see if the »

Matthew McConaughey Leads a Rebellion in First Trailer For ‘Free State of Jones’

9 January 2016 3:30 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Following his financially successful launch of The Hunger Games franchise, Gary Ross is going back in time for a Civil War drama. The Pleasantville director’s Free State of Jones is led by Matthew McConaughey and follows a Southern farmer who leads a rebellion against the Confederacy.

Once set to come out earlier this year, the newly launched Stx gave it the prime summer release date of mid-May, which hopefully is a promising sign of quality. The first trailer, which has arrived today, delivers about what you’d expect based on the premise, with another seemingly dedicated performance from McConaughey. Also starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Keri Russell, and Mahershala Ali, check out the trailer, new images, and poster below.
