Moviehole caught up with actor Daniel Gillies and talked about him playing astronaut John Jameson in Spider-Man 2…
“Mate, you know I am [excited], but I made it like a year ago now. I guess I should be jumping out my skin, but that’ll probably come on June 30, or July 1, when it’s released there in Australia”, the reticent actor laughs when asked if his nerves are in tack. “I’ve had such a long time to think about it, and take it all in, that at the moment, I’m quite calm. But I tell you what; the film looks beautiful, bloody beautiful. I did some ADR (Additional Dialogue Recording) for a couple of scenes on it yesterday, and it looks fantastic”.
Gillies said he saw Bruce Campbell’s scene, among others, this week.
The actor told of a stipulation in his contract when he signed on to play John Jameson. “Yep, I had to agree to come back for the third one. No big secret that there’s going to be a third one, it was recently announced publicly, and yep, I’m back. And after all, movies seem to be all about trilogies these days don’t they?”
And Gillies touched on his next movie, “Bride and Prejudice”, with Martin Henderson. “Yep, just did a film with Marty. It was awesome. We did it in England, and then India. It’s kind of like a play and I play a really interesting character, but to tell you much more would be ruining the story. Marty plays this debonair American character, and I’m an English guy. It was such an interesting character to play â€“ so much more than the â€˜weird’ movie I did before it. It wad called Trespassing and I played this psycho kid from Alabama. It was a weird film”, he laughs.
Thanks to ‘Clint’ for the alert!
