Liberace set photos
  • Photos of Matt and Michael Douglas on the set of Behind the Candelabra in LA on Monday are at Zimbio and the Daily Mail. Matt is photographed on set with his agent, Patrick Whitesell.

  • Matt is narrating two advertisements for United Airlines during the Olympics, in addition to his ads for TD Ameritrade (all funds going to charity). The United ads are available here and here.

  • Jimmy Kimmel was asked whether Matt will be making an appearance at the Emmys (which he is hosting) - from Yahoo:

    When asked by AccessHollywood.com about whether another one of his more prominent pals - Matt Damon (who often appears on his own show) -- could appear on the Emmys, Jimmy said the actor is busy - for now.

    "I actually did see him the other day... I think he's busy making out with Liberace right now, filming," Jimmy said, referring to the Liberace bio pic where Matt stars as Liberace's lover. "So I don't know. So far we have no plans to incorporate Matt into any aspect of my life."

    Matt pics

    He really does look great for that era. Being that his hair is dyed (not blonde) I figure they will be utilizing that later in filming. Maybe he'll be wearing platforms to make up for the height issue. It looks great so far.

    Re: Matt pics

    It's a really interesting look and getting a lot of coverage from media outlets. Matt does look taller than Douglas in the shots. Fantastic wig.

    Some coverage (Us Weekly claimed Matt was playing Liberace):

    not-bourne movie

    Sorry if everybody is sick of this but I was just noticing (with delight) the flood of negative comments concerning Gilroy's interview on huffpost. That guy says the strangest things.... like this is the first time in history that one movie dovetailed into another, when Ultimatum did that same thing! Strange! Knowing what we already know, it almost seems like he's addicted to trying to take credit for other people's work.

    The interviewer also stated that he's given Renner superpowers, which the trailer only implied, which seems to shift the flavor of the series so radically into teen crapola. Even if I wasn't already mad, that in itself would repel me.

    Re: not-bourne movie

    And a lot of the comments were also objecting to the superpowers idea. Lainey (of Lainey Gossip, who is really pushing the film/Renner) says it starts out slow but gets much better and the scenes with Norton/Renner are great. Whatever. Empire's comments about the film being 'bigger and better' than previous films were actually taken from their cover, and didn't relate to their review.

    From the official production notes of Legacy (an interesting way to word what happened):

    In April 2010, several months after Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon opted not to participate in this chapter of the series, producers Jeffrey Weiner and Ben Smith met with the franchise's narrative architect, Tony Gilroy, and asked him if he...

    Legay producer says he now plans three more movies with Renner because that is what the audience wants:

    Re: not-bourne movie

    Are you serious? Renner has superpowers? So they are trying to turn this into a superhero franchise? Im not following the legacy press. Only exposure I have to it is twitter and here. (and i happened to see 2 trailers while watching tv). Can't wait for it to be over.

    Now I'm really disgusted. And I really could care less what Lainey has to say or what she thinks.

    Ok rant over. Had to get it off my chest.

    Re: not-bourne movie

    I'm also not trying to watch it closely (but it's impossible to avoid). Renner's character may not be a superhero but he is genetically enhanced.

    Re: not-bourne movie

    If Gilroy is making strange and negative comments, he really must feel that the public are total fools and will listen to his sayings like he was a wise sage. This confirms that he is a pompous ass, and not to mention an out of touch with the people complete jerk.

    Re: not-bourne movie

    Gilroy is also aiming to fix issues he had with Ultimatum in Legacy and to make it more 'intelligent':

    Gilroy's negative comments

    Comments about Gilroy and his negativity towards the Bourne series:

    (Article also confirms Matt's comments about the one script for Ultimatum and Gilroy writing the script on the condition he would not have to talk to Greengrass)

    Those quotes are from the New Yorker article, including:
    The studio, with Gilroy's help, hired a new director, Paul Greengrass, who had made "Bloody Sunday," about the 1972 British massacre of Irish protestors in Derry.

    Greengrass's aesthetic was cinema verite, his trademark a constantly moving handheld camera. Greengrass made the "Bourne" sequel a visually innovative picture, one in which dialogue was scant and motivation gave way to momentum. The Times praised the look, the speed, and the sheen of the film, calling a chase sequence "one of the three or four most exciting demolition derbies ever filmed." There was no mention of Bourne's atonement.

    Gilroy is still angry about it. "It was sort of like a crime against the gods of storytelling," he says.

    In 2005, the studio used another large check to persuade Gilroy to write the third "Bourne" movie. One of the conditions of his taking the money was that he would not have to speak with Greengrass. Gilroy wrote a draft of the script, and then left the project. Then Greengrass passed the script on to four other writers, among them Tom Stoppard. Frank Marshall, one of the series' producers, says that "The Bourne Ultimatum" is, at its core, still Gilroy's story. Its worldwide gross was four hundred and forty million dollars. Gilroy never saw it.

    Re: New photos

    I remember that Matt's character was supposed to have had plastic surgery to look more like Liberace. His face looks a bit different in these new pics, sort of sharp.

    I was a bit dubious about this project, but the clothes are a riot. There was an interview with the cast of one of the Ocean's movies in which they asked the actors which role they would have liked to play, assuming they couldn't play their own. Matt said Elliot Gould's part "just for the clothes." Lol.

    Here are some more fantastic outfits on set - twitpics taken by the Actors Comedy Studio, which is located in the same building as the filming the last couple of days. It is the scene where Thorsen is kicked out of Liberace's apartment by his manager (played by Dan Aykroyd, also on set). More photos are at newscom.

    Matt looks hot in those clothes! Wish more straight men would dress in tight clothes like that (It's a pity because usually when you do see a guy looking like that he's gay and not looking for feminine attention).

    Liberace (and Matt's new house)

    He does look so sexy in the gay clothes!!! Oh his chest is naturally smooth deliceous and kissable? His wife is so lucky I almost 'hate' her sometimes but then I feel bad because she's Matt's. I love his work and I can't wait to see this one too. I want to be his personal assistant like in the Original Bourne so bad but then again I couldn't stop touching him if I were and his wife would have me fired like the first day or hour...

    About his house--WOW--they never have to 'fight' for the bathrooms ha ha! But I'm so sad that he moved from the East Coast because now he's so far away! I almost moved to LA again like the other unsucessful times and now I can't anyway I'm sort of stuck here. Anyway, thanx for letting us see it but you paid way too much money for it if it's true!!!

    He's totally in character--him and Michael D. with their rich-man alure and the fur coat alone makes me wanna go to see it so much! It will seem like 4-ever until it comes out though, it always does...but really I'm so excited about this one it seems like another fun one like 'Stuck On You' was, xoxo.
