Hello! [29 Jun 2006|10:35am]

I love Edward Burns' genuine sensitivity, and his way of writing women characters so perceptively...(how does he do that?!) I just watched Sidewalks of New York last night, and loved it. I know he is often compared to young Woody Allen, but I think he's got his own stamp - less intellectual, but less judgemental and more heartful. (Although I do love Woody Allen - rent Deconstructing Harry sometime.)

Anyway, at first I thought this was actually Edward Burns' livejournal! (As if!)

Cheers for now!

Hi. I'm new here and to livejournal in general. I love Edward Burns and I am so desperate to see new material that he has written. I am always excited to see him in any movie but it's just that much sweeter when he writes, directs and stars. I am so glad that I found other people who understand my devotion.

Rock my socks!

From British Vogue online:

CHRISTY TURLINGTON is celebrating the birth of a daughter, by actor Ed Burns. The American supermodel, who married Burns in San Francisco last June in a gown by John Galliano, has refused to comment on her pregnancy since rumours began to abound shortly after the wedding. But according to a report in the New York Post, their baby girl was born last Saturday. She is likely to be the first of a large brood for Christy and Ed. The beautiful pair, who originally delayed their wedding following September 11, have often spoken in the past of their desire to have at least four yoga-loving, vegetarian children.


From Indiewire.com:
UP THE "RIVER": Brace yourselves, Ed Burns is making another movie. He's just starring in this one, a murder mystery called "The River King," to be directed by Nick Willing ("Hypnotic"). The film is based on the Alice Hoffman novel; David Kane will adapt the screenplay. Burns plays a small-town cop who investigates a prep-school student's drowning. London's Myriad Pictures is working with Canada's imX communications to produce, through U.K.-based Grosvenor Park's First Choice Films. More casting announcements will be made soon, and the flick is supposed to start principal photography in Canada in spring 2004.


From E! Online:

It was a model delivery for beauty Christy Turlington.

The supermodel turned yoga pro gave birth to a baby girl last Saturday with hubby Ed Burns by her side, reports the New York Post.

Interview [08 Nov 2003|05:21pm]

[ mood | amused ]

It's been quiet so I'm going to start digging up more news on Ed. I think some pimping of this community is definately in order.
An interview with Ed:

In first-time screenwriter Doug Jung's "Confidence," actor/writer/director Edward Burns takes on the role of Jake Vig, master con man and quasi-leader of a gang of grifters.
When searching for an actor to capture the role of the charismatic con man, director James Foley recalls, "If we had the wrong guy, then we'd be sunk; Jake needed to be a calm man—to be able to con anybody out of anything, but he also had to have this soulful side.

What I like about Eddie Burns is that he's got a strong, extroverted personality. He’s very self-confident, but there is a part of him that’s very private."

In this interview, Burns discusses 'Jake,' working with acting icons, and even offers up an explanation of the difference between con and heist movies:

Do you ever get intimidated by working with stars such as Tom Hanks, Robert DeNiro, and Dustin Hoffman?
You get intimidated the nights leading up to it, especially if you haven’t met the guys. Hanks was different because I had met him once and we had done the whole boot camp experience. But certainly DeNiro and Hoffman and Andy [Garcia] were very different in that I'd never met them. It’s sort of like the night before you’re going to play one-on-one against Michael Jordan, only the good thing is you show up and instead of playing against Jordan, he’s on your team. So you get to be Scotty Pippen to his Jordan.

When you work with a DeNiro or Hoffman, they love what they do so much that there’s never any competitive vibe. It’s more about how do we do this thing together. If you’re smart for a younger actor, you sit and listen and you learn from these guys. After 5 minutes they no longer become Dustin Hoffman, they become 'Dustin,' this guy you’re working with and you have a good time with. We really hit it off and I think you can tell in the film that we have a really good rapport with each other.

You’re really up close and personal with Dustin Hoffman in the first few scenes. Was that difficult?
Dustin’s part was originally written for a 250 pound NY Mafioso who won a boxing championship. Dustin signs on and the scenes still need to have the physical threat but Dustin, obviously, cannot do it with just sheer brawn. We did this rehearsal period with Jamie Foley and the screenwriter where we did a lot of improvising. I should say, Dustin was sort of leading that charge and my job was to stay with him as he tried to figure out how he was going to become an ominous physical threat to me, without just being able to overpower me physically. I think the first thing he said was, "Let me read your palm." The minute he saw my discomfort with that touchy, feely side, that’s when he started to run in that direction with the character.

Where do you think this film fits in the tradition of the con?
The difference between the con and the heist movie – and they are 2 different things - [is] the heist has a gang of guys who are going to pull off a heist and explain to you how they’re going to do it. The film is basically then you watching them execute it. The con movie is a little bit different where maybe we tell you what we’re going to do but it never goes down the way you expect because there’s so much double-crossing and cheats and lies going on along the whole way. I guess you have the two [David] Mamet ones, "House of Games" and "The Spanish Prisoner," and "The Sting" and "The Grifters." Someone said this movie is like "The Sting" meets "Pulp Fiction," or something like that.

Similar to "Reservoir Dogs?"
Yeah, but that’s more a heist than a con. "Ocean’s 11" is a heist movie, not a con. There’s no outwitting anybody – maybe a computer or sophisticated alarm system. Ours is more a complicated chess game where you have to outsmart everyone involved, even the members of the con team. At some point you are lying to them to get them to do what you want, but you can’t lie so far as to lose their trust entirely.

Movie star Ed Burns has hailed his new crime movie "Confidence" as his "favorite professional experience."

The "Saving Private Ryan" actor - who is married to supermodel Christy Turlington - puts his satisfaction down to concentrating all his efforts on the film, ignoring other projects.

Multi-talented Ed, who also writes and directs, says, "Confidence has been my favorite professional experience - better than any of the things I've written and directed, and even better than Private Ryan, and I think it's because I finally got it.

"For the first time I wasn't writing a screenplay in my trailer during my downtime.

"I showed up and I said, 'I'm going to attack this thing with the same single-minded focus I do when I'm writing and directing.'

"Just suit up, shut up, because you never know who you're going to learn from and what you might pick up."

Not much news on the lovely Ed Burns but I did find this in a review of Gigli:

Affleck already grappled with love for a lesbian in "Chasing Amy." The difference here is a significant drop-off in IQ points. Affleck plays Larry Gigli like Edward Burns on stupid pills. Lopez is the more natural star here, thanks to her radiant smile and general ease in front of the camera, even if they rarely connect with a coherent character.

Hi. New.

I've always had an exponentially longer list of celebrity women I've considered attractive than celebrity men. Edward Burns is one of the rare long-time loves. Along with the likes of Alec Baldwin, Peter Steele and Travis Barker. But Burns definitely takes the cake. And he is the sole reason I've come to loathe Christy Turlington.

I saw him on Conan O'Brien years ago. He was promoting a movie of his and I thought to myself That man is beyond hot, I HAVE to see his movie!!! And the rest is history! : )

Fav Burns movie: Sidewalks
Character: "Pete the cinematographer" in Life or Something Like It, only because I desperately want him after seeing it. Too many gratuitous dirty/romantic scenes..
