Whether you’re Tom Cruise or Lupita N’yongo, acting remains the same tough balancing act of scratching your own creative itch, hewing close to the director’s vision, and delivering a performance that’s interesting to an audience, all while not having any control over how your work ends up looking. Since yesterday brought an edition of Film4’s “Self Portrait” series that featured some of the greatest directors working today, it’s only right that we turn our gaze onto actors.

Lasting just under ten minutes, the “On Acting” episode of Film4’s series has rounded up some big names for its interviews (like Michael Fassbender, Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio) with actors that discuss the meaning of acting. One of the more honest and funnier responses comes from British actress Olivia Colman, who responds that she has no idea what makes acting so great but that “I really love it and I hope I can do more of it.” Some actors get a little more philosophical about their purpose, like Tom Hiddleston, when he calls his profession a sort of version of “3D anthropology or archaeology,” in that actors study and ultimately share the emotions of a multitude of people that have existed over countless centuries, and in countless emotions, with some actors even portraying non-human or extra-terrestrial characters.

This video is a wonderful look into the more philosophical and reflective side of actors that is usually ignored in most interview contexts, where actors are trying to sell their current project to an audience. Watch Film4’s “On Acting” below.

The official synopsis for ‘High-Rise’ is here!

London, 1975.

A slick apartment tower rises above the Thames, the beginnings of what will soon become the world’s biggest financial hub. Dominating the landscape, it is simply called the HIGH-RISE… its address a mark of exclusivity. Its newest resident is Robert Laing, an ambitious young doctor utterly seduced by the lifestyle and cutting-edge technology the high-rise has to offer.

Laing meets Wilder, a charismatic provocateur who introduces him to the seedy underbelly of the high-rise. The cracks in this apparently flawless society grow rapidly, and Laing is shocked at the depravity he sees. Life in the high-rise quickly descends into madness and violence, and Laing finds himself amongst the marauding hordes of bloodthirsty tenants who take over the building, floor by floor.

A disturbing vision from the director of Kill List, this action-packed thriller depicts society’s most chilling nightmares.

The ‘High Rise’ audiobook is now available for download at Audible.Com! It is free when you signup for a 30 day trial here.

 

NEWARK, N.J., Mar 26, 2015 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Audible Studios, a production arm of Audible.com, today announced the release of Tom Hiddleston’s vivid interpretation of J. G. Ballard’s unnerving dystopian novel, High-Rise. The narration by The Avengers star Hiddleston, which anticipates the release of a new film adaptation of the novel in the fall, is available for download at www.audible.com/HighRise.

“I spent last summer holed up as Dr. Laing on the 25th floor of the ‘High Rise,’ as brought to life on film by Ben Wheatley and Amy Jump,” said Hiddleston. “The book was always, necessarily, our cornerstone. Ahead of the release of the film, it was great to go back to J. G. Ballard’s original text and to read it aloud. Ballard was prescient about so many things: our seduction by (and reliance on) technology; our attempted colonization of the sky; and his particular, distinguishing implication that modern civilization is perhaps only a few neighborly disagreements away from collapse and chaos.”

“Because Tom was already immersed in the film version of this modern classic, he was the perfect actor to create the audio version,” said Audible Publisher and EVP Beth Anderson. “His performance is nothing short of remarkable, and listeners will be riveted by how viscerally he brings the terror and mayhem of this story to life.”

The forthcoming film adaptation of High-Rise stars Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller and Elisabeth Moss. High-Rise was first published in 1975.

In addition to Hiddleston, among the acclaimed performers who have narrated works of literature for Audible are Dan Stevens, Jake Gyllenhaal, Kate Winslet and Tim Robbins. In 2013, Audible Studios won its first Grammy Award, for its production of Janis Ian’s memoir Society’s Child, and also won the Audie Award for Audiobook of the Year, for Colin Firth’s performance of Graham Greene’s The End of the Affair.

Audible, the world’s largest seller and producer of downloadable audiobooks and other spoken-word content, invented and commercialized the first digital audio player in 1997, and has since been at the forefront of the explosively growing audiobook download segment. In 2014, listeners around the world downloaded 1.2 billion hours of audio from Audible.com outlets; Audible members downloaded an average of more than 17 books over the course of the year. More than half of current Audible members are first-time audiobook buyers.

loki-128144Five-time Oscar-nominated actor-director Kenneth Branagh, who directed the first Thor(2011) film, shares his thoughts on what makes Tom Hiddleston’s Loki a fan-favorite.

“People like villains. People like damaged villains,” Branagh told IGN when asked about Loki’s appeal. “He was always an enormous part of the comics. A much loved villain, much of the way that happens on those big legacy pieces. They happened to find a great actor in Tom Hiddleston, who again brought depth to it the same way Cate Blanchett did with this stepmother role in Cinderella. Why people go to the dark side is always fascinating. The survival instinct makes them very inventive. It means they’re always surprising you. So, when you have that dark, damaged quality and literally a box of tricks to play with that kind of character is going to be around for a long time.”

He reiterated a desire to return to the Marvel cinematic universe as a director, and adds that he would be open to working in the Star Wars universe as well.

Horror master, Stephen King was treated to a private screening of the upcoming horror film due out this October and has praised the film!

When you’re the most famous horror author of all time, you get a bunch of perks. One of which is sometimes you get to see major motion pictures seven months early with a plus one. I’m talking of course of Stephen King, who recently took to Twitter to heap praise on Guillermo del Toro‘s Crimson Peak, which he apparently had a chance to see in recent days. King’s son, accomplished author Joe Hill, also saw the film and he too had some wonderful things to say about the movie, which opens October 16. Read the Stephen King Crimson Peak reaction below.

A stellar line up from the British film industry have gathered in central London for a service to remember Oscar-winning director Richard Attenborough.

Dame Judi Dench and Sir Michael Caine were among those who celebrated “a truly great man” of stage and screen.

Also attending were Alan Rickman, Jane Seymour and Sir John Hurt.

Lord Attenborough, a stalwart of the British film industry for more than half a century, died aged 90 last year.

Sir Ben Kingsley and Lord Attenborough’s brother, TV wildlife presenter Sir David Attenborough, were among those who spoke during the Westminster Abbey ceremony.

It was led by the Dean of Westminster, the very reverend Dr John Hall.
