AHA!  I scanned this article early this morning and didn't even pick up on Ray's name!  Shame on me!  Anyhoo, here it is in full:

Billy Bob Thornton has set Robert Duvall, John Hurt, Kevin Bacon, Robert Patrick and Ray Stevenson to star with Thornton in Jayne Mansfield's Car, the first dramatic feature that Thornton has directed since 2001's Daddy and Them. The film is being funded by AR Films, whose principal, Alexander Rodnyansky, will produce with Media Talent Group's Geyer Kosinski. Production begins June 22 in Georgia.

Thornton, who co-wrote the script with frequent collaborator Tom Epperson, has been mobilizing the picture for a while and just locked his final cast. He has also set John Patrick Amedori to play a lead in the film. A comedy with dramatic overtone, it revolves around the culture clash of two families, from different continents, in 1969.

Rodnyansky is the founder of the Ukrainian TV channel 1+1 and former CEO of CTC Media when it became the biggest independent publicly traded media conglomerate in Russia with five channels in three countries. He has produced over 20 TV series and 30 films including Elena, which received the Special Jury Prize in the Un Certain Regard category at Cannes last month. "I've started to look for opportunities in America, and this is definitely not a single picture strategy," he told me. "When I read that script, I fell in love with it. I was a fan of Sling Blade and Billy Bob's other movies. No matter where you are making movies, it's all about the script."

Thornton has been busy with his music, and he delivered strong performances in films like Monster's Ball, Bad Santa and Love Actually. He also recently directed The King of Luck, a documentary about Willie Nelson. If he's got another Sling Blade or All the Pretty Horses in him, welcome back to the director's chair, Billy Bob.

P.S.  I don't believe that it's all about the script (not that anyone cares what I beleive!).  Sometimes it's all about the director.  Here's hoping that Billy Bob does right by Ray.

Here's another, you lucky Georgia fans!

Portions of downtown Cedartown will transform into a movie set later on this month as production crews begin filming for the Billy Bob Thornton flick "Jayne Mansfield's Car," Casting is under way for locals to be cast as extras in the film. The extras casting director, John Ingram announced that they are looking for men and women from 18 years of age to 60 years of age as well as a few children. He also announced that they are in much need of people with 1969 model or older automobiles.

If you are interested, send a clear and recent photo or of yourself along with your clothing sizes and height, and all contact information to Ingram at ecaindie@gmail.com as soon as possible. The same procedure should be used if you have an automobile that you would like to appear in the movie. They are looking for people with ordinary looks, no piercings or modern hair dye need apply.
 
Crews will begin filming in Cedartown the third week of June. Preparation for the filming has already began with the transformation of downtown buildings to be featured in the movie. The former "Moore's Soda Fountain" and the current "West Theatre" will be featured in the movie.  Production crews have covered the murals on the side of Moore's Soda Fountain with removable blocks. The blocks will be painted to look like a brick wall.
 
The screenplay for "Jayne Mansfield's Car,"  was written by Billy Bob Thornton along with his "One False Move" partner, Tom Epperson and will co-star Billy Bob Thornton and Robert Duvall. The movie is set in the year 1969, it is the tale of an Alabama man whose wife left him with four children to go off to London with another man some 20 years earlier. The two families must come together after her death to honor her dying wish to be buried in Alabama.
 
The film will be directed and produced by Billy Bob Thornton.

AHA!  Who else??? At least it would be credible that someone would run off with him and, for a change, he's NOT playing a thug!  Woo hoo!

Ray Stevenson talks Thor 2, G.I. Joe 2 and The Three Musketeers
By David Bentley on Sep 28, 11 11:31 AM


RAY STEVENSON was born in Lisburn, Northern Ireland, raised in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and Northumberland, and now lives in Ibiza.

The 47-year-old attracted Hollywood's attention when he appeared in TV series Rome. His big-screen credits include two Marvel Comics adaptations - he played the vigilante title role in Punisher: Warzone and was the rotund Asgardian warrior Volstagg in Kenneth Branagh's Thor.

He's in the upcoming G.I. Joe sequel and will next be seen on screen in The Three Musketeers.

Ray's new film Kill The Irishman was released on DVD and Blu-ray on Monday (September 26) by Anchor Bay Entertainment. Thor was released on the same day in the same formats, and The Three Musketeers gets a UK cinema release on October 12.

Here, the actor talks about his projects, including whether he will be in Thor 2 following the recent news that Patty Jenkins is stepping into Kenneth Branagh's shoes to direct the thunder god's next adventure.

HOW HARD WAS IT MAKING NEW GANGSTER EPIC KILL THE IRISHMAN?
Ray Stevenson: It was a very tough shoot actually. We shot it in seven weeks. It really does come across like a 40 million dollar movie; a huge testament to (director) Jonathan Hensleigh and those involved. I was basically filming every single day; there wasn't a scene that I wasn't in.

WORKING WITH CO-STAR CHRISTOPHER WALKEN MUST HAVE BEEN FANTASTIC
Oh my God, he's incredible. And they're thoroughly prepared as well. Him and Val Kilmer and Vincent D'Onofrio... all the guys from New York. They were just great.

YOU PLAY REAL-LIFE CHARACTER DANNY GREENE. HOW FAMILIAR WERE YOU WITH HIM BEFORE YOU STARTED WORK?
I thought I wasn't at all when I was first approached, but Jonathan (Hensleigh) sent me the script. as I was reading it I thought, 'Hang on, I know this'. When I finished it I realised three or fours years ago I'd seen a programme on The History Channel about American mobsters and it was the story of Danny Greene.

THOR WAS ONE OF THE YEAR'S BIGGEST BLOCKBUSTERS. HOW DID YOU LAND THE PART OF HIS ALLY, VOLSTAGG, ONE OF THE WARRIORS THREE?
Kenneth Branagh just called me up and he says, 'Ray, I've got this job...', I said, 'I'll do it!' He said, 'No, let me explain. I've been watching your work love, I know you're a big strapping guy and everything, but there's this part and I think you could do it'. Then the role nearly killed me. We were filming in New Mexico and LA. I had to have a vest on with ice water pumped through pipes on this vest to cool your core temperature down. I mean there's this huge latex fat suit, then a big pashmina woolly scarf as a beard, then a nice woolly hat as his headpiece. Then they put armour on you and give you a six-bladed axe to wield (see picture below of Ray in the role).

WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE IN THOR 2?
I think they're in talks with the director now. I know they want to mash these worlds together in The Avengers. I don't know. If the sequel happens it may be that Thor will go off on a wild adventure on his own and lead The Warriors Three to Asgard. We'll see.



YOU'RE ALSO PLAYING PORTHOS IN THE THREE MUSKETEERS
Yes, I'm going to be in London on October 2 for the premiere. I haven't seen it yet but it was such a good shoot. (Director) Paul Anderson and (Producer) Jeremy Bolt were just tremendous, and as was the whole cast.

HOW DIFFICULT WAS IT FILMING WITH 3D CAMERAS?
The only difference with the 3D camera is that the camera 'sees around you', so your fencing has to be absolutely on point; on target, so the whole discipline had to be stepped up for that, which was great because it made you keep great focus on set, but what a story to tell!

ROME WAS A GREAT SAGA WHICH SEEMED TO HAVE MORE LIFE IN IT. WERE YOU GUTTED IT ONLY LASTED TWO SERIES?
Yes, there was a whole lot more, and even HBO admitted publicly they made an error, an error of judgment pulling that series. But they took the decision, they pulled it and then it went huge. I can't complain. It's got me my access to get representation in the States, and it's been regarded very, very fondly. Everybody would have loved to have continued with it, but the decision was out of our hands.

HOW WAS IT WORKING WITH BILLY BOB THORNTON ON HIS UPCOMING MOVIE, JAYNE MANSFIELD'S CAR?
He's an amazingly bright, clever man. He's something very special, and his script is just amazing. Robert Duvall plays his father; Kevin Bacon and Robert Patrick are his brothers; we had Tippi Hedren as our respective mum, John Hurt, myself. It's just amazing. It's all set in 1969 around the time there was this travelling show where they would be taking Jayne Mansfield's car around the States as some freak show.

YOU DIDN'T HAVE MUCH OF A GAP BETWEEN SHOOTING THAT AND GI JOE 2: RETALIATION, IN WHICH YOU PLAY FIREFLY?
We did the last scene in the movie, which we finished at 2am one Saturday morning, and at 12.30 that afternoon I took a flight down to New Orleans to start on GI Joe 2. Literally out of the frying pan into the fire. I get to beat up The Rock twice, or I try to, and I get to play this cool, gnarly pyrotechnic guy.

FINALLY, AS AN IBIZA RESIDENT, HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE LIFE THERE?
I've got a very young family and Ibiza is... it's like having a harbour. There's a lot of people who don't make their living on the island who live on the island. We don't have seasons per se; we're not seasonal workers. Sometimes we're on the island, sometimes we're off, but it's never dull. It's good to have somewhere to 'refit the boat, scrape the barnacles off', then you're off again.

shoot = pun, cover of magazine says they are "Three Busketeers". What confuses me is 1) the open instrument case is missing (duh where else does the money go?) and  2) I thought there was a difference between street performers and people who stood on soap boxes... outside of my cultural norm.   The only place I have lived where there were street performers was Chicago and they had to pass auditions and be licensed.

Billy Bob Thornton Describes 'Jayne Mansfield's Car'
The actor and Oscar-winning screenwriter describes his first directorial effort in 11 years.

By Fred Topel October 24, 2011

Billy Bob Thornton’s breakthrough was the film he also wrote and directed, Sling Blade. Then he got screwed on his next two directing gigs, All the Pretty Horses and Daddy and Them. It took 11 years but he’s just wrapped another film as director. He spoke about the upcoming Jayne Mansfield’s Car while promoting Puss in Boots at a press conference.

“It’s tonally Sling Blade-like. I think there’s probably more humor in it than Sling Blade but it’s once again, very dark humor as usual,” Thornton said. “It takes place in the 1960s and we’re hoping that it will come out sometime in the late spring or fall of next year. We literally just finished it so we’re still working in post production on it.”

Thornton went on to clarify a few more details. “Just so you know, Jayne Mansfield is more of a metaphor for the movie. It’s not about Jayne Mansfield’s death or anything like that. It’s mentioned but that’s not what it’s about. It’s really about how war affects different generations, done in sort of a darkly humorous way. And about the examination of life and death and the fear and fascination with both.”

He’s got quite a cast for the film too. “It stars myself and Robert Duvall, John Hurt, Kevin Bacon, Ray Stevenson and Frances O’Connor. It was a very nice bunch of folks and a great experience. Hopefully I’ll get to come back and talk to you guys about it.”

Thornton provides the voice of Jack, as in Jack and Jill, in the Shrek spin-off Puss in Boots.

Puss in Boots: Amy Sedaris and Billy Bob Thornton Talk Playing Jack and Jill

...'Movie Fanatic: Do you have something new film-wise coming out?

Billy Bob Thornton: I just finished directing again for the first time in 11 years. It’s a movie called Jayne Mansfield’s Car. It takes place in the 1960s and we’re hoping that it will come out sometime late spring or fall of next year. It’s a movie that stars myself and Robert Duvall, John Hurt, Kevin Bacon, Ray Stevenson and Francis O’Conner. It has been a great experience.

Movie Fanatic: Is it like Sling Blade or All the Pretty Horses in feel?

Billy Bob Thornton: Tonally, it’s Sling Blade like. I think there’s more humor in it than Sling Blade. Once again, it’s dark humor, as usual. Just so you know, Jayne Mansfield is more of a metaphor for the movie. It’s about how war affects different generations. It’s about the examination of life and death and the fascination of those.

Excellent Titus.. :clap:  Seems like there was more than two steed on the field that day, and they all look quite stable, as stable as a stud on a stallion.

Of course.  Why would she NOT?   :huh:

I'm so looking forward to this movie.  Maybe it will make casting directors re-think Ray, and cast him in non-thug roles.  I know, I know.  I really have a burr under my saddle about this.  Though, now I think about it, a burr under my saddle would be more of an annoyance to the horse than to me.  Where did that expression come from?

http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplaylist/berlinale-2012-review-jayne-mansfields-car-finds-a-solid-cast-at-the-wheel-but-not-a-whole-lot-of-gas-in-the-tank

A distinctly American, humanist drama, one that somewhat makes up in performances of warmth and generosity what it may lack in  originality, "Jayne Mansfield's Car," which just enjoyed its World Premiere at the 2012 Berlinale, finds director and star Billy Bob Thornton showing a certain spiritual kinship with fellow director/actors Clint Eastwood and Robert Redford. Off-key directorial choices, and a frustrating lack of narrative and characterisation consistency prevent the film from ever coalescing into something as satisfying as Clint is able to deliver, at his best, and for better or worse, it doesn't have the grander ambitions of a Redford effort, but the films of all three, are to a certain degree built as temples to the performances, sometimes to a fault. But that approach is somewhat justified when the performances are as unshowily enjoyable as they are here. It is not a panacea for all the film's flaws, but the actors' conviction elevates, or at least distracts from the insubstantial plotting and occasionally clunky dialogue.

Detailing rifts and reconciliations, generational divides and political face-offs, the 1969 Alabama-set film follows a few tumultuous days in the lives of rich WWI veteran and patriarch Jim (Robert Duvall), his sons (Robert Patrick, Kevin Bacon, Thornton himself) and daughter (Katherine LaNasa), and their respective families, in the wake of the death of their mother, Jim's ex-wife, Naomi. She died in England, and now Kingsley (John Hurt) the husband who stole her away from Jim all those years ago, is bringing her body back for burial, in accordance with her wishes, with his own grown up son (Ray Stevenson) and daughter (Frances O'Connor) in tow. If this sounds confusingly overpopulated, it untangles itself fairly quickly, thanks to deft handling of the introductions of each of the characters. That this ensemble then manages to colour in those quick sketches without straying outside the lines, with seemingly no one person treading on any other's performance to big up their own, is one of the chief pleasures of watching the film.

Because ordinarily with a cast of this many characters, where all have subplots with mini-dramas of their own, there is a point where as a viewer one loses interest in one of them, in favour of another. But here you rarely get that sense of disappointment when the action cuts from one sibling's strand to another's (and if perhaps the youngest of the three generations earns the least of our interest or attention, they also get the least screentime). This is almost to be expected when you pack your cast with such reliable actors' actors as Duvall, Hurt, Bacon, and even Thornton. But Robert Patrick is given a long-overdue biggish role here too, while mostly TV actress Katherine LaNasa turns in a similarly winning performance as the ex-beauty queen daughter, married to a boorish husband, and mother to two girls, who embarks on an extra-marital flirtation with Ray Stevenson. Stevenson himself, meanwhile, seems to relish what feels like a fairly atypical role; usually the hardman, and, perhaps just in this writer's mind, usually oiled and stripped to the waist, here he plays entirely contrary to that image, his bulk be-suited, his vowels clipped and plummy, his emotions (not quite entirely) repressed. Rounding out the impressive cast is British actress Frances O'Connor who somehow manages to create something memorable out of a role that consists almost entirely of reacting to the outlandish suggestions of Thornton's slightly simple Skip.

But these pleasures aside, soon enough the chickens come home to roost as far as the overstretched narrative is concerned, and in its final third the film resorts to a few cheap tricks to resolve the story's more pressing questions. And so the deus-ex-machina device of a certain spiked drink feels unearned, especially when a single dose of acid seems to heal the kind of familial discontents that have brewed and festered for decades. Similarly Thornton's rather overfamiliar savant/naif character -- perhaps the familiarity can be forgiven because a) he's also directing and b) he does it so damn well -- tacks much closer to the "savant" side of his nature in these last scenes, as he usefully becomes a vessel to deliver unadorned, childlike truths that urge longstanding issues toward rather hasty resolution.

But perhaps the biggest directorial misstep is in the choice of final scene. The film is already tonally erratic, sometimes to the point of clumsiness, but having essentially closed out the story on a big, broad, warm note that feels of a mood with what has gone before, we fade unexpectedly back up from black again to an orphaned single epilogue scene. Now, we don't deny the narrative appropriateness of what happens in this scene, just its placement, because it not only does it play out in a minor key that is tonally dissonant with the scene immediately preceding, but it seems, cynically, placed exactly there in order to lend the film a claim at deeper political resonance than it ever actually earns. And the attempt to refocus our attention away from where it has been directed for the preceding hour-and-a-half, is counter productive anyway, as all it really does is remind us that despite this late grab for grandiosity, the film is slight.

Even the title reminds us of this slightness. Jim, the irascible, intractable, prejudiced father of the family has a bizarre and ghoulish hobby, apparently based on Thornton's own father's quirk, involving tracking police scanners and visiting the scenes of car crashes. At one of these, he studies the twisted corpse of a recent accident victim and we move into slo mo as the music crescendos: for a moment it is as though Thornton is trying to say something profound about the nature of collision, or the American relationship with the automobile, or the catharsis to be gained from constantly exposing oneself to death. But then the scene ends and we revert to the comedy of manners and clashing cultures that is the film's natural element for the majority of its running time. Same with the titular car; in a scene signalling a kind of rapprochement between Jim and Kingsley, they go to look at the car Jayne Mansfield famously died in, as it does a kind of freakshow tour around the region. But the point of the scene escapes us, and again, there is no real conclusion to be drawn from Jim's compulsion: slightly too little is made of it for us to understand its bearing on the arc of the story, but slightly too much for us to not ask those questions.

A Russian/American co-production, and Thornton's first fiction feature as director in over a decade, "Jayne Mansfield's Car" feels curiously old-fashioned and has none of the focus and discipline that made his debut "Sling Blade" such an immediate, Oscar-winning success. But as a nearly stageplay-like showcase for some extremely watchable actors, it is diverting enough to almost compensate for its awkwardness in other areas.

A lot to catch up on in this thread and all great news...even Betta;s corset..maybe I could pass her a few of mine that are no longer suitable for this body..lol.

Great review for this movie and it is definitely the kind I want to see Ray in instead of fan boy movies. We older women are die hard fans and for those of you watching Downton Abbey he would have made a good match for Mary..all fire and ice together.

When is this due out? I haven't checked, but love all the pics too.

Thanks to all for great work finding these, and to you to Titus, or have you not gotten your eyes off of Betta's lovliness to look at the other pics..ah shucks, can't blame a red hotted lad for that.

Oh. I concur with gusto. A really nice find.

This film trailer is very interesting. It has certainly made me want to see the movie (and Labia sighs with relief that there is a film coming out that doesn't have super-heroes, animated penguins, major explosions; or Jennifer Aniston, in it).

And I so agree that Ray's parts are too small (and I never thought I'd hear meself saying that); ahem. I mean the drama or comedy roles such as in The Other Guys where it was blessed to see him in the present day and in normal attire.

Jayne Mansfield's Car Exclusive Poster Premiere: Billy Bob Thornton Directs A 60s Throwback

It may have the name of one of the most beautiful and famous actresses of the 1950s, but Jayne Mansfield's Car is not a movie about glamour or Hollywood; it is a movie about war. OK, technically it's a movie about the clash between a Southern family and a British one when the woman who united them dies, but the new film directed by and starring Billy Bob Thornton has war lurking everywhere in it. Thornton's character and his two brothers (played by Kevin Bacon and Robert Patrick) are World War II veterans, their father (played by Robert Duvall) fought in World War I, and the film is set in 1969, as thousands of young men are being sent off to yet another war in Vietnam.

You'd better believe that sounds like a stacked cast, and in this exclusive, brand-new poster for the film, you can see just how deep the talent runs. The British family is played by John Hurt, Ray Stevenson and Frances O'Connor! Kevin Bacon is playing a hippie! Even if you've never heard of Jayne Mansfield, that's a cast that can get anyone's attention. And hey, aren't you dying to figure out how Jayne Mansfield's car figures into the story at all? To find out you'll have to buy a ticket-- or hit the "rent" button on your remote.

After premiering at the Berlin and Toronto International Film Festivals, Jayne Mansfield's Car-- the first film Thornton has directed since 2001's Daddy and Them-- is coming to theaters on September 13, and will be available on-demand starting August 20. For more on the film, you can check out the official synopsis below:

In what critics are calling his best work as writer/director since SLINGBLADE, Academy Awardâ winner Billy Bob Thornton stars – along with Oscarâ winner Robert Duvall, two-time Oscarâ nominee John Hurt and Golden Globe winnerKevin Bacon – in this story of fathers and sons, wars and peace, and the turbulent time that changed America forever. It’s 1969 in a small Alabama town, and the death of a quirky clan’s long-estranged wife and mother brings together two very different families for the funeral. But do the scars of the past hide differences that will tear them apart or expose truths that could lead to the most unexpected collisions of all? Robert Patrick (WALK THE LINE), Ray Stevenson (“Dexter”),Katherine LaNasa (“Deception”) and Frances O’Connor (THE HUNTER) co-star in the acclaimed comedy/drama thatTwitchFilm calls “A perfect film for a lazy summer day with near-perfect performances across the board!”

Opening in theaters this weekend...but, they say the film stars Tippi Hedren as Naomi.  That's odd because I don't remember seeing her at all.  Pretty sure they cut her part out.

Cast: Tippi Hedren, Kevin Bacon, Ray Stevenson, Robert Patrick, Hohn Hurt, Robert Duvall, Billy Bob Thornton
Distributor: Anchor Bay Entertainment

The first narrative feature Billy Bob Thornton has directed since Daddy And Them (2001), the provocatively titled Jayne Mansfield’s Car had its debut in competition at the 2012 Berlin International Film Festival. Distributor came on board the film set in 1969 Alabama soon after its premiere there. “We loved it – it has a phenomenal cast, a unique storyline and it’s Billy Bob Thornton’s return to directing,” said Anchor Bay president Bill Clark. “We knew that audiences could identify with one or more of the diverse characters in the film – everyone has an uncle, father, grandfather that embodies the aspects of each generation.” The film centers on the death of a clan’s estranged wife and mother which brings together two very different families. “This film is geared toward a mature audience, although all families have some sort of dysfunction, and will find the film relatable,” said Clark. “Jayne Mansfield’s Car is backed by a nationwide marketing and publicity campaign. The film has had strong word of mouth screenings leading up to release. Billy Bob Thornton has supported this film through broadcast, print and online interviews. The rest of the cast, including Mr. Duvall, have also been extremely supportive.”

Jayne Mansfield’s Car, which screened at the Mill Valley and Austin film festivals last fall, began its Ultra-VOD release in August and is slated to open 10 markets in 10 theaters including New York, L.A., New Orleans, Dallas, Austin and additional Southern cities this weekend. Clark noted the film has “done quite well” in VOD and its expansion will be based on what is “best to maximize the film’s performance for its audience, filmmakers and Anchor Bay.”

Opening in theaters this weekend...but, they say the film stars Tippi Hedren as Naomi.  That's odd because I don't remember seeing her at all.  Pretty sure they cut her part out.

Cast: Tippi Hedren, Kevin Bacon, Ray Stevenson, Robert Patrick, Hohn Hurt, Robert Duvall, Billy Bob Thornton
Distributor: Anchor Bay Entertainment


Wonder if somebody mixed up Tippi Hedren and her granddaughter. Her granddaughter was just cast as the female lead in the 50 Shades of Gray (Grey?) film, I believe. Forget what name she uses. Dakota Johnson? (Melanie Griffith & Don Johnson's kid?)

Howdy! :wave: Thanks for news and all to everyone! :snog:

*bead*

Good idea, but I don't think that's it.  The character, Naomi, is talked about a lot.  And there may have been flashbacks that featured her.  But I think they cut those out.  I wasn't more specific because I didn't want to spoil anything, but Naomi is actually dead.

I hope I did this spoiler thing right.  I think you're supposed to scroll over it.

I found this excerpt from an interview with Billy Bob at http://www.craveonline.com/film/interviews/568857-exclusive-interview-billy-bob-thornton-on-jayne-mansfields-car?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=exclusive-interview-billy-bob-thornton-on-jayne-mansfields-car that talks about why Tippi Hedren's scenes were cut:

I saw that Tippi Hedren was credited online as playing Naomi. Did she have a lot of scenes that were cut out?

There were two scenes. There were actually two scenes. At the end of the day, as usual, there are things that you have to lose and those were two scenes that we could lose and not hurt the movie. And I hated to lose them because they were terrific scenes and she and John [Hurt] were both terrific in them. They were toward the very beginning but finally, in cutting the movie, the place we found we could cut the most and not damage the movie was in the beginning of the movie. And then we had the idea that, "Well, look, who needs to see the British people until they get here? Let's look at it through the point of view of the people in Alabama who are waiting for them." So, we don't see them until Alabama sees them.

We originally even had a phone call, between Ray Stevenson and Duvall, where we cut back and forth on the phone call. We took that out also and just made a decision, since we're gonna have to cut this stuff, what should we do? Well, let's just cut all of it. Because that way, we don't see them until they get to Alabama. There was actually a very funny scene at the little airport that cut out too, but we cut it before we ever shot the movie. We knew it was a big expense and we didn't have a lot of money to make the movie, so we knew it was a big expense for a payoff, only as a standalone scene. In other words, it didn't really service the story that much. But she was terrific.

I wonder if Billy ever considered cutting any of his own interminable scenes? In particular the one where he stands shirtless with his mouth moving for at least 20 minutes. I don't know what he was saying since I ff'd it.

Indeed, I was thinking, "Who needs to see that?"

Billy Bob was probably fulfilling a lifelong fantasy, to wank on the big screen.  I could have lived my entire life and not seen it and been perfectly happy. 

 Maybe we can adapt the Dexter tee shirt to this, because I've certainly been unable to bleach my brain of the image.  On top of that, I paid 10 bucks to see that thing OnDemand!  I'm vexed.  I'm very, very vexed!   :brutus:

Can't say I didn't warn you, but I guess it's like with milk- even when you know it's sour, you just GOTTA smell it!

It was actually rather integral to the plot though. Espesh later when you see him with the medals.

Oh you meant the WANK scene? Yeah, I could have gone my whole life as well, lol. All I remember when I watched that scene (because I'm apparently a masochist) was thinking, 'Wonder how they made the squippy wanky sounds for the soundtrack?' I know, I'm fun to watch movies with.

Just when I had successfully forgotten that. :( Slap slap slap.

Now I don't just want to gouge out my mind's eye, but puncture my eardrums as well.

This is the best I could do, Bonny. As for the 10$, I'm afraid there's no solution for that. :(

Damn you Titus. I clicked that link. Then I clicked another one and got a rousing rendition of "I"ve Got a Crush on You Billy Bob Thornton." :frown:

Wingit, I need another blast from the neuralizer please. Full volume.

Never mind the 10$. Ask him for the rest of that deleted hot scene. I'll reimburse you when you pass it on to me. ;D
