Christopher Plummer calls Terrance Malick "pretentious" saying he rewrites his lines so much that they aren't realistic and becomes hard for the actor to identify.
What do you think. It seems the issue here is more the second point, the idea of an actor thinking they are the lead but then getting shafted. Clooney, Plummer (Canadian) and the black women all seem to identify with this sentiment, and all look somewhat smug (in my opinion.)
Clooney mentions that Adrien Brody was cut as the lead from Thin Red Line.
Fassbender seems not to be concerned with this information, asking "was Mickey Rourke in it?"
Tilda Swinton casually muses "Everybody was in it."
At the same time, Clooney becomes serious and clasps his hands together.
"Yeah, but he was the LEAD" Clooney reiterates.
Fassbenders jaw goes slack, and juts.
Charlize crosses her legs, brushes her hair, and gives a little excitable eye glimmer. "No!" She exclaims, feigning surprise, "They didn't tell him?"
Clooney goes on to explain how Adrien Brody was on MAGAZINE covers and DIDN'T EVEN KNOW he wasn't in the movie.
Fassbender, Swinton and Theron nod, each giving a polite jaw drop or little "wow."
Plummer then goes onto to mumble about how Malick has beautiful photography, but has no story, how Plummer thought he was fantastic in the movie, how his role was moved around in the editing room, how he became "background noise" how the entire movie became unbalanced because his emotional performance was displaced, and how he will "never work with mr. malick again."
What I'm getting from this is that Malick is "2deep4" clooney, black, and Plummer, and that the brits and the south african (theron) are more keen onto the actual level Malick is going for. Have I struck at the very basis of what makes these invading actors so wonderful?
