Macy in Fargo, Boogie Nights, and Pleasantville. Everett Collection More William H. We thought Chicago was enough. Macy has appeared in more than 50 movies since, and though he battled typecasting after playing the sad sack in a string of acclaimed films Fargo, Boogie Nights, Pleasantville, etc.
Macy has also been directing, beginning with the musical drama Rudderless and currently with the new film Krystal, in which he also acts with his wife, Felicity Huffman. Nick Robinson Jurassic World stars in the drama as an year-old with a heart condition and strict Christian upbringing who falls for a recovering alcoholic and ex-prostitute Rosario Dawson.
He has no recollection of it, though he did recently find out he can be heard in the Jodie Foster-Anthony Hopkins Oscar winner. This has happened to me before. Someone was talking to me about The Silence of the Lambs and my role in it. So I guess I was in Silence of the Lambs! But I was sort of the outsider. The cast, I remember, was very, very tight. They went on vacation together, all the guys went on vacation.
And they came home from vacation and they were still pals. And the bar was set really high on that thing. I really wanted it.
I went to school in Vermont so I have some land up there. My nearest neighbor was a mile-and-a-half away. I had no one to tell. I was ricocheting off the walls, I was so excited. Those guys prepare exquisitely. It was professional and yet they laugh a lot. But I controlled what they called the gore gun. It was a backpack under my clothes and it had a pipe that stuck out the back with compressed air so you could blow the blood and it appears to be coming from the back of your head.
I controlled it by pulling the trigger, and there was a squib in the pistol and it also fired the gore gun. We had a couple of aborted takes because something went wrong. That was about a minute cleanup because they had to clean up the wall and reload everything. I think we got it. They had this guy who built my suit, and he dressed Cary Grant. And I had never seen so many rain trees. They had these giant construction cranes, I think there were three of them, holding piping as big as this room, and pumping thousands of gallons of water through these things.
And they had built a street, so I could walk almost a block. The rest of it never made it into the movie. It was scripted that my character weep and really fall apart in that moment. I was so emotional, I wept like a baby. We shot kind of in order, and when we got there it was coursing through me.
It was scripted that I look at my wife and a tear roll down and you can see color. It was a big scene, and a big moment, and it was a huge setup. Gary had every toy in there known to man to shoot this thing.
You gotta tell me when the money shot is. So tell me when we get to it. I just could not stop crying all day. Joe Johnston went for it. When the plane crashes , we were in that fuselage for a week with them rolling us. And they rolled it and rolled it. We shot that forever. And I was 35 feet above the water. For my safety, they put a harness on me and they had me chained to the crane. And the crane was supposed to look old and decrepit.
And it did look old and decrepit. I thought that was genius. I read these scripts and I have the same reaction as the audience does. Some germ of that idea actually came from one of those writers. Watch an exclusive clip: Read more on Yahoo Entertainment:
