To know Spike Jonze is to know that he’s a guy that delights in awkwardness. His roles in Wolf of Wall Street and Moneyball play up the playful nervousness that he projects. However, things got a little more than playful and a little uncomfortable when he started to grill a BBC interviewer on her thoughts on his film, Her.

These things tend to happen pretty frequently, and I really can’t blame even a celebrity for getting edgy or weird during their thirtieth interview of a junket, but to watch Spike Jonze move even a little on the offensive is a rare sight. Like seeing a dolphin teach driver’s ed.

What If Philip Seymour Hoffman Played The Siri In ‘Her’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/what-if-philip-seymour-hoffman-played-the-siri-in-her/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/what-if-philip-seymour-hoffman-played-the-siri-in-her/#comments Thu, 23 Jan 2014 21:42:56 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=258912 The man nails every role.

What would it be like if the phlegm-bubbling, possibly talking with its mouth full voice of Philip Seymour Hoffman played the sexy operating system in Her rather than the sultry tones of Scarlett Johansson? Thanks to this well-done re-edit from Richard Trammel, you don’t have to use your brain cells to imagine it. It is now reality. And it makes me need a shower.

Joaquin Phoenix Falls In Love With A Sexy J.A.R.V.I.S.

My wife gets mad at me because I’m always paying more attention to my phone than I am to her. But at least I’m not as bad as this guy.

In Spike Jonze‘s ‘Her’, Joaquin Phoenix plays a man whose creeper stache prevents him from finding love. In the reality of this film, the iPhone’s Siri is actually useful and is way better at flirting. And so, Phoenix finds himself falling for the disembodied voice of Scarlett Johansson as so many fans of the actress’s “Anywhere I Lay My Head” album and scrambled HBO viewings of Match Point already have.

Casting Round-Up: Joaquin Phoenix And Natasha Lyonne Get Back To Work http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/casting-round-up-joaquin-phoenix-and-natasha-lyonne-get-back-to-work/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/casting-round-up-joaquin-phoenix-and-natasha-lyonne-get-back-to-work/#comments Wed, 13 Jul 2011 21:42:23 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=220123 Also, Leatherface finds more pretty people to dismember.

The final piece is in place. Natasha Lyonne is officially returning for American Reunion. She’ll join other original castmates Jason Biggs, Alyson Hannigan, Chris Klein, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Tara Reid, Seann William Scott, Mena Suvari, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Jennifer Coolidge and Eugene Levy for the 2012 release. After a rough couple of years in Hollywood, Lyonne has agreed to do the role in return for any leftover pie. (Deadline)

Leatherface has more beautiful victims. Tania Raymonde and Clint Eastwood’s youngest son Scott have signed on to bake under the Texas sun while fleeing a chainsaw-wielding maniac in Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D. Eastwood’s deal has him returning for two additional sequels. Raymonde’s deal has her looking hot until she gets cut in half. (Deadline and Deadline)

I guess Joaquin Phoenix is all better now. He’s booked to star in Spike Jonze and Charlie Kaufman‘s untitled project. Plot details haven’t been revealed yet but it’s suspected the film is “a satire about how world leaders gather to figure out all the seismic events that will take place in the world, from oil prices to wars that will be waged.” Just like in real life. THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE!!! (Twitch)

Beastie’s ‘Fight’ Features Every Actor With a SAG Card http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/beasties-fight-features-every-actor-with-a-sag-card/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/beasties-fight-features-every-actor-with-a-sag-card/#comments Mon, 17 Jan 2011 22:49:49 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=17385 The premise is unknown for Adam Yauch's film short Fight For Your Right Revisited, but the casting news alone is enough to raise your eyebrows and drop your jaw.

The premise is stil unknown for Adam Yauch’s (Beastie Boy Adrock) film short Fight For Your Right Revisited, but the casting news alone is enough to raise your eyebrows and drop your jaw. Playlist says that the previously announced Elijah Wood, Danny McBride, Seth Rogen, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly and Jack Black, will be joined by (deep breath) Orlando Bloom, Susan Sarandon, Stanley Tucci, Kirsten Dunst, Jason Schwartzman, Steve Buscemi, Ted Danson, Rainn Wilson, Will Arnett, Chloë Sevigny, Rashida Jones, Martin Starr, David Cross, Steve Buscemi, Jody Hill. It’s a small miracle that the rest of Hollywood wasn’t forced to shut down during the filming of this short.

The film will be screened for the first time on Thursday at Sundance Film Festival, so expect the cat to be out of the bag about 45 seconds after the credits roll. Clearly, the Beasties have built enough cred up to enlist the A-list talent mentioned above, but will it be any good?

They’ve certainly got a pedigree in making music videos, having worked with Spike Jonze for the iconic “Sabotage” video, and their sensibility appears to be in the right place, but we should know for sure come Friday. Fingers crossed that the short ends in a pie fight.

Good news for Arcade Fire. Spike Jonze is re-teaming with Charlie Kaufman for a film project. After bringing us all Being John Malkovich and Adaptation, which made us all pretty happy, they are reportedly pimping a brand new film, the details of which are being kept tightly under wraps.

We do know that the secret project is not Kaufman’s Frank Or Francis. That’s currently shuffling slowly forward at Sony. But given that it’s a musical satire of Hollywood and the commercial machine, it might be awhile before we see it. Only time will tell what Jonze and Kaufman have in store. Lord, knows the world needs them to get the band back together. With the failure of Synecdoche, New York and Where The Wild Things Are, the hipsters are running out of Halloween costumes. (LA Times)

Kanye West + Spike Jonze = Fairytale http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/kanye-west-spike-jonze-fairytale/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/kanye-west-spike-jonze-fairytale/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Where the Wild Things Are arrived this past weekend, and it pretty much turned out to be a therapy session with a bunch of clinically depressed forty-somethings dressed like furries. So when we heard that "We Were Once a Fairytale," the Spike Jonze-directed film starring Kanye West, hit the Web today, it was the news equivalent of a Xanax. We have the 11-minute piece here, minus the first minute or so. Spoiler alert: it's effing weird.

Yeah, like we said, pretty weird. I’d like to see Spike Jonze revisit themes in Adaptation and do a film in which Kanye starts to interrupt himself, and then find out that his entire life was actually the daydream of an autistic child staring at a snow globe. That autistic child’s name? Kanye West.
