GARFIELD

Cinderella
boy Bill Murray (“The Royal Tenenbaums”) has landed the starring role
in “Garfield” according to today’s Variety.
With filming wrapped on the live-action segments of the movie, the comic actor
is now on board to provide the voice for the film’s CGI star. 

 

HULK

Director Ang Lee sent “Hulk” star Eric Bana to watch a bout of
Ultimate Fighting to prep him for his role as the big, green rage-a-holic
according to a write-up at Empire
Online
.

The U.K. movie mag reports that Bana, along with F/X staffers at ILM were
sent out for a night of “entertainment” arranged by Lee. It turned
they had ringside seats for a night at the brutal Ultimate Fighting competition.

“I really didn’t want to do it,” Bana told Empire.
“It was just short of finding an illegal bare-knuckle fight somewhere.”

However
the actor watched as men pummeled each other into semi-consciousness. 

“I think it was about pure,
unadulterated rage. About being exposed to something very, very primal,”
the actor said of Lee’s field trip. “There
were some specifics that I wouldn’t like to mention that Ang wanted me to pay
attention to. Interesting, then, but not something I’m in any real hurry to see
again.”

Empire
Online
presents additional Q & A with Bana in the subscriber-only segment
of the website.

Thanks to Movie City
