Jim Caviezel Talks WHEN THE GAME STANDS TALL, His Passion For Filmmaking and Why He’ll Never Direct An Episode Of PERSON OF INTEREST

by     Posted 61 days ago

jim-caviezel-when-the-game-stands-tall-interview

Within a few moments of interviewing Jim Caviezel, it’s apparent immediately how much the actor loves talking about film.  Not just acting or his eclectic resume or any role in particular – but other facets of the process: lighting, directing, cinematography… Caviezel has made a career of playing quiet and introspective characters; but in person he is naturally gregarious and prone to go off any number of tangents – be it his affinity for directing or his relationship with WWII POW Louis Zamperini.  Perhaps it’s that naturally convivial nature that imbues his subtle roles with unforeseen depth.  In When the Game Stands Tall, Caviezel plays to type as the introverted Bob Ladouceur – the coach who led the De La Salle Spartans on the longest winning streak in high-school football.  It’s another quietly powerful performance for Caviezel, much of the film’s success dependent on his ability to convey a multitude of emotions with nary a word. Caviezel, as always, is more than up for the challenge.

In the following interview with the actor, he talks about the difficulties of portraying a living person, his passion for directing, what films he would like to make himself one day and why he’ll probably never direct an episode of his TV series Person Of Interest. For the full interview, hit the jump.

Executive Producers Jonathan Nolan and Greg Plageman Talk PERSON OF INTEREST, Killing a Major Character, Where This Season Is Headed, and More

by     Posted 268 days ago

jonah nolan greg plageman person of interest slice

The CBS drama series Person of Interest is not your typical procedural.  Sure, its characters have cases to solve every week, but there is also an ongoing mythology, character development you can really invest in, and major character deaths that affect everyone.

While at the CBS portion of the TCA Press Tour, executive producers/writers Jonathan Nolan and Greg Plageman spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about when they felt they really hit their stride with the show, that they do consider the show to be a procedural that also happens to have a variety of other elements to it, how equal thought went into both the recent episode where they killed off a main character and the episode immediately following it with its aftermath, where things are headed for the rest of this season, and how they will be focusing on artificial intelligence as a commodity and the possibility of another Machine.  Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
