Helen Mirren on Bob Hoskins: 'A spectacular firework just as it takes off'

Bob was a great actor and an even greater man. Funny, loyal, instinctive, hard-working, with that inimitable energy that seemed like a spectacular firework rocket just as it takes off. When I worked with him on The Long Good Friday he was supportive and not egotistical. He was never sexist, when many around at that time were. I had the honour of watching the creation of one of the most memorable characters in British film. I watched his brilliant Bosola in The Duchess of Malfi, and then had the greatest of pleasures in playing again opposite him in the film Last Orders. Playing again with him was like playing a duet with a brother I had grown up with, which professionally I had. I personally will miss him very much, London will miss one of her best and most loving sons, and Britain will miss a man to be proud of.

Prince helps man break up with his girlfriend on Arsenio Hall Show

"In this relationship, things are much harder than in the single world. Keegan, in this life you’re on your own. Keegan, this is what it sounds like when Steven breaks up with you."

Here’s what I managed to bring back from BAM’s Little Shop of Horrors Sing-a-Long: a little bit of Rick Moranis talking about the original ending. And a fake rose they intended for us to throw at the screen.

Other interesting tidbits from his introduction:

  •  Little Shop of Horrors is his favorite film out of all the films he appeared in.
  • LSOH was shot on the 007 stage at Pinewood Studios, “which is the closest I’ll ever get to James Bond.”
  •  During scenes with the plant where he’d have to move at half speed (more accurately 2/3 speed), he found the trick to walking in slow motion is to keep your butt tight because you tend to let it loosen up when you walk in slo-mo.
  • He would practice slow-mo walking with Sigourney Weaver, who was shooting Aliens on a neighboring stage and had to do the same thing.

(The line we all laughed loudly over: “Hahaha, isn’t it funny that everybody’s dying.” :)

The rest of his intro felt and sounded much like the Nerdist interview, so go have a listen to that for Rick Moranis telling you story after story in a fatherly sort of way.

P.S. The lovely lady is Cheryl Henson.

I WAS THERE (not quite this close)

AND IT WAS SO FUCKING AWESOME.

I am so, so, SO grateful. O what a world.

Robert Towne: I wanted something that would really shock you and make you feel that the capacity for really cruel violence was always lurking there. The snip of a man’s nostrils is an act of violence that appeals to the viewers imagination, which is, “Jesus Christ, that must hurt!” Then Roman didn’t allow his leading man to recover from this little nose nick. He plastered that Band-Aid across Jack’s face, with the stitches in it, and he lived with it throughout the lecture. People said, “That’s a hell of a thing to do to a leading man. That’s stupid!” But it added credibility. If you get hurt, you don’t recover so quick. Also, you’ve got that thing about being nosy and being a private detective and having your nose slashed.

Hillary Clinton Sweat? Never, Says Conde Nast Traveller

“It’s an improbable physical anomaly that was cited more than once (along with superhuman stamina, uncommon thoughtfulness, and a steel-trap mind) by longtime aides and members of the press corps,” writes Kevin Doyle.

In case you needed another reason to be awed by Hillary Clinton!
