By the time Fox’s New Girl, starring Zooey Deschanel, premieres, it won’t seem so fresh off the presses. Variety reports that the network will allow viewers to watch the whole series before it is broadcast Sept. 20th on live TV. Viewers will have access to the show through various outlets, including an unprecedented pre-primetime viewing on iTunes. The network hopes that through this new strategy they can access sampling opportunities. Before the launch, the show will be available for free on iTunes, Hulu, Fox.com, and Deschanel’s Hello Giggles blog.
Movieline extracted a boozy, druggy anecdote from Nick Nolte that occurred during the filming of Warrior, including “mixed-up” assistants, other people’s girlfriends, cocaine, and 5 AM fights. It’s a far cry from TOH’s talks with Hardy, Edgerton and O’Connor about the upcoming film, which will be released September 9th.
Speaking of booze-hounds, actor Corey Stoll speaks candidly about playing Ernest Hemingway in Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris in an interview with Ask Men, in response to Allen’s suggestion that for dialogue, he “make something up”:
Make something up? I’m making up Ernest Hemingway dialogue, in a Woody Allen film! It was terrifying, and I was a little timid the first couple times, but then I realized they probably won’t give me another take. There were definitely several times where I made the very conscious decision to will myself to be superconfident. “I’m Ernest fucking Hemingway! I don’t have to apologize for anything!” I think that’s a part of his character that’s so attractive and exciting to people now. Aside from being one of the most brilliant writers of the 20th century, he had a world view that was unapologetic. I had to embrace that, because I’m certainly not unapologetic.
