Sebastian Stan loves that ‘Civil War’ Iron Man fight as much as you do

Sebastian Stan loves that ‘Civil War’ Iron Man fight as much as you do

The very title of Captain America: Civil War lends itself to the notion of friends vs. friends, but it’s a real doozy when Team Cap battles Team Iron Man in the new film (out May 6). Alliances shift, bad feelings are had, and you have awesome moments like the one in the first Civil War trailer where Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), aka Cap, and the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), aka Cap’s childhood friend Bucky Barnes and former brainwashed Hydra assassin, throw down with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.).

Two against one may not be fair, but it’s sure fun to watch — and enjoyable to play, says Stan:

“It’s one of those days where the equivalent would be that scene in Apollo 13 when the astronauts come back and they’ve survived reentry to Earth and you cut to mission control and everyone’s like ‘Yeah!’ “

He admits that the scene, which had to be done in one take and involved well-choreographed fighting moves plus a bunch of shield sharing, took them just about 15 times to get right. Plus, there were times when Evans and Stan would be going through the scene without having Iron Man there at all just in case there needed to be CGI effects added in later. “Then you’re just fighting air, which is even more difficult.”

Stan’s looking forward to fans seeing Steve and Bucky — or as the Internet likes to call them, #Stucky — fighting side by side again with the added emotional layers of having to beat down Cap’s other friend from the Avengers.

“This is how I would look at it: It’s three people and they’re on a boat in the middle of the ocean, the boat is sinking and the boat may stay afloat with one less person on it. So who has to go? It’s inevitable at that point because blood will always win in the end, and (Steve and Bucky) are really like blood brothers.”

Jim Carrey’s ‘I’m Dying Up Here’ Casts Sebastian Stan

Melissa Leo, Sebastian Stan and Clark Duke have joined Showtime’s upcoming comedy “I’m Dying Up Here,” TheWrap has learned.

The series about the stand up comedy scene of the 1970s is executive produced by Jim Carrey. If the pilot is picked up to series, Leo and Duke would appear as series regulars, Stan would guest star.

Leo will play the role of Goldie, a brassy comedy club owner who rules over her business with an iron fist and nurtures her comedians with tough love.

Stan will play Clay “a funny, charming comedian on the rise, who declares irrelevancy as his biggest fear.” Duke will play Larry, a ballsy young comedian from Boston who moves to L.A. with the hopes of making it big.

They join previously announced cast members Ari Graynor, Andrew Santino, RJ Cyler, Erik Griffin and Stephen Guarino.

Dave Flebotte will write and executive produce the series. Carrey will executive produce along with Michael Aguilar, and Christina Wayne for Endemol Shine Studios and Assembly Entertainment.

Cast From ‘The Martian’ Compares Notes With NASA Astronauts

It’s the half-way point of a special one-year mission on the International Space Station. NASA is testing the limits of extended stays in outer space. That’s as a new movie about an extended stay on Mars is about to premiere.

“This will come as quite a shock to my crew mates — and to NASA — and to the entire world — but I’m still alive. Surprise!” said Mark Watney, Matt Damon’s character in “The Martian.”

“The Martian” centers on one astronaut’s survival on planet Mars. He is believed to be dead, but proves otherwise, and then needs to be rescued.

Actors from the movie visited the Johnson Space Center to compare notes with astronauts and crew members.

It was a chance for Sebastian Stan and Mackenzie Davis to meet ISS astronaut Mike Hopkins.

Mackenzie Davis: “Well, how long is a spacewalk?”

Mike Hopkins: “Spacewalks typically are about six hours.”

Davis: “Six hours!”

Hopkins: “Six hours, but that doesn’t tell the whole story. There’s a long procedure on getting into the suit.”

Sebastian Stan: “Forty-five minutes, right, it takes you, or more?”

Hopkins: “No, it’s even more than that. Yeah, it’s five or six hours from when we start preparing to when we’re actually going out the hatch. And all of a sudden it’s six hours later and you’re coming in after completing a space walk.”

For realism when making films about space, Hollywood often collaborates with NASA.

Sebastian Stan talked about one problem in making the film.

Stan: “I should mention, by the way, that when they made our astronaut suits, they did not, like, think about us going on pee breaks, at all!”

Hopkins: “Ditto! Yeah! That’s … it’s the same!”

“The Martian” opens in theaters on October 2nd.

JoBlo.com’s Exclusive Set Visit with ‘The Martian’ Cast

JoBlo.com’s Exclusive Set Visit with ‘The Martian’ Cast

Can you talk about the characters that you play in THE MARTIAN?

Kate Mara: I play Beth Johanssen. She’s basically the hacker of the group. She’s much smarter than I am. She’s definitely the computer wiz of the crew.

Sebastian Stan: I play Chris Beck. He’s a doctor which is kind of funny to me. I can’t imagine anyone entrusting their life to me. These are all very specifically trained astronauts and my character’s background is in medicine. But they do trade off certain tasks across the day and just help each other out.

We’ve heard a lot that NASA has been closely involved with giving advice. Have you guys experienced any training?

KM: I wish! I’m sure if we had to have had it, we would have found a way but a bunch of us came straight from other jobs. I really wanted to go visit NASA with Jessica. She went right before we came out here. I was stuck in New Orleans finishing a movie there and I couldn’t make it out. But I really knew nothing about space or NASA or anything of the subject. I’ve just been trying every day to go on their website and read about women in space and the history there. I had no information to go off of. When we got here, I read the book, which I hadn’t before reading the script. I know that NASA is really involved and really supportive of the whole thing. That’s always really nice to hear because it’s very rare.

SS: I concur. (laughs) No, that’s what I heard as well. I heard they were very excited and supportive. Obviously, all of the research I’ve done was from my apartment. I didn’t get to go to Houston or JPL or any of those places unfortunately. I wish I would have had the time to do that. All of the stuff I’ve found, not surprisingly, is close to a lot of the details that are in the book. Reading the book definitely helped. I feel like we’re on a new wave of interest for NASA and space, particularly Mars. There’s a lot of campaigns going on that are independent of NASA. Popularity is rising. I feel like we’re going to see this actually happen in our lifetimes. You sort of end up pinching yourself as you’re shooting this stuff. A lot of what happens in the book follows closely these theories that you can find on YouTube.

The set seems like a really challenging environment to shoot in.

KM: Yeah. The first two days, Sebastian and I didn’t have anything in our costumes, which are brilliant and really incredibly designed but so hard to wear.

SS: I refer to it as a car. Every day there’s a part of it that works better than another. Some parts have issues.

KM: The incredible set we’re on, obviously you can’t make everything work perfectly. We need to be able to take the helmets off quickly and put them on. They’re lit perfectly. But because of that, we have some problems with all the dust getting in our eyes and not being able to breathe. There’s a lot of panic involved when you can’t breathe and you can’t see and you’re trying to stay in it. It is helping with the scenes. It’s been wearing us down.

SS: We were talking about getting here. We leave the hotel during night because the sun doesn’t rise until 7:30. We leave at 5:30, 6 a.m. We get here, barely see the day while shooting, then get into the car and it’s night again already. So it kind of feels like isolation.

KM: We constantly feel like we’re in our own little bubbles. People are watching us and talking at us and we can’t hear a thing they’re saying. All we can hear is what all the other astronauts are saying. At first it’s a little jarring but then you get used to it. Again, that helps to stay in it.

What’s it like working with Ridley Scott?

SS: For me, it’s like having a front seat education to acting. You think, “I get to go to work with these types of people” and that’s enough for me.

Do you think he gets enough credit for the performances in his films? He’s seen as a big spectacle director but he gets great performances.

KM: As an actor, I know actors that know that and recognize that.

SS: A lot of his films are very character-based. I think there’s storytelling there and a focus on character. How many amazing characters have come from his movies?

KM: That’s one of the things I love about his movies is that they are epic in scale but they –

SS: There’s always a part at the core of it that sort of grounds the whole situation. He just sees something in a way an actor likes. He sees how they shine the brightest and how to translate that to film.

What’s it like being on Mars? Is it nice to have a practical set and scenery around you rather than it being all green-screened around you?

KM: It’s crazy.

SS: Oh my God, it helps so much. It’s funny, there is some green in there somewhere but –

KM: We don’t ever see it. We were shocked when we showed up on set and found out that’s what we had to play with.

SS: Half the time, I don’t even know where the cameras are.

KM: That’s another bonus. There’s five cameras going and we all have cameras on our helmets, which, we were just told, are also going at all times.

SS: It’s cool though because it keeps the momentum going. It’s kind of like a play that way.

Vulture: Sebastian Stan Was ‘Maybe Too Enthusiastic’ About His Big Nude Scene

Last January, Captain America star Sebastian Stan had Sundance audiences buzzing about his dark comedy The Bronze, especially since he gets pretty damn naked in an extended (and highly flexible) sex scene. “I was a maybe too enthusiastic about it,” Stan told us with a grin last night at the opening night of The Heidi Chronicles, “but I certainly, uh, brought everything I had.”

And then some! Stan plays a preening gymnastics coach in the film, and when he finally has his romp with Melissa Rauch’s former Olympic athlete, the two of them cartwheel, leap, and pile-drive each other in the nude. “I really enjoyed the people I was working with, and when they explained to me what the scene was about, it was so funny,” Stan said. “I just thought, You know what, you’ve just got to jump in the water sometimes, right? You’ve just got to take your clothes off and go for it.” So he overcame his initial hesitations about baring all? “No, that’s the thing, I had no hesitation,” he laughed. “I was very happy about it.”

Stan will soon have to report for duty for Captain America: Civil War, where he’ll be reprising his role as the conflicted Winter Soldier. Has he seen a script yet? “You know, I have, actually, believe it or not!” he said, sounding as surprised as anyone. We wondered whether there’d be much room for his character in a Captain America sequel that adds Iron Man, Black Panther, Spider-Man, and Hawkeye to the mix, and Stan wasn’t willing to allay our fears. “You should figure that one out,” he laughed. “I have no idea.”

Sundance Opening Film ‘The Bronze’ Gets Summer Release Date

The_Bronze_still Bryan Buckley’s The Bronze becomes the latest Sundance film to nab a summer release date.

The comedy, the opening-night title at the Park City film festival in January, has been given a July 31 wide release, distributor Relativity announced on Friday. The film will have a limited release on July 10.

The Bronze revolves around a former Olympic gymnast portrayed by Melissa Rauch, with a cast featuring Gary Cole and Thomas Middleditch.

U.S. rights were acquired by Relativity for a figure in the range of $3 million, sources previously told The Hollywood Reporter. International rights went to Sony.

In a festival review, THR’s chief film critic Todd McCarthy wrote that Buckley “brings energy to his directorial feature debut but precious little style.”

With a wide release on July 31, the title may serve as counterprogramming against Paramount tentpole Mission Impossible 5, which recently vacated its Christmas release plan to avoid a showdown with Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Other films planned for release that weekend include Antoine Fuqua’s Southpaw and Ryan Reynolds’ thriller Self/Less.

The Bronze is one of multiple titles to emerge from Sundance with a theatrical debut in the next few months.

Sebastian discusses ‘Once Upon A Time’ Mad Hatter return: ‘Never say never’

Sebastian discusses ‘Once Upon A Time’ Mad Hatter return: ‘Never say never’

Zap2it.com — Sebastian Stan has his hands full with his role of Bucky Barnes/the Winter Soldier in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that doesn’t stop fans from clamoring to have him back on “Once Upon A Time.” His last appearance as The Mad Hatter was in the 2012 episode “The Doctor,” and he says a return likely won’t happen any time soon.

“It’s a hard question to sort of answer,” Stan tells Zap2it while promoting “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” “I really enjoy that character and I have a lot of fun, and I enjoyed both of the showrunners and everyone on the show. Never say never. It’s very possible. At the moment, it’s not really on my radar, but you never know. I remain a big fan of everybody there.”

He does think that there is story left to be told with that character, though he says that any questions about what storylines those could be should be directed to “OUAT” creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis.

“There’s so many possibilities there,” Stan says of The Mad Hatter. “One of the things those guys did so well — out of the many things — is they just reinvented all of those characters in a new way. They reintroduced them to a whole new generation. The Mad Hatter was never like that in just the cartoon. It remains to be seen.”

“Once Upon A Time” airs Sundays on ABC at 8 p.m. ET/PT. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” hits theaters on April 4.

Sebastian Stan More Than Meets the Eye in Broadway’s Picnic

You can check out Seb’s entire interview over at PLAYBILL.COM

How did Picnic come about for you? Were you actively looking for more theatre work?
Sebastian Stan:
I actually met up with our director Sam Gold about two years ago — in L.A. of all places. I’d heard such great things about him. He didn’t know at the time when or if it was going to happen, but we started discussing Picnic. Then I read the play and thought it was great. I love the ’50s and grew up loving works from that time period and from those great playwrights. Fortunately, the timing worked out, and we were able to do the play together two years later.

So you were already buffing up to reprise your role as Bucky Barnes in the “Captain America: The First Avenger” sequel, “Captain America: Winter Soldier.”
SS:
Yeah. And it’s funny, because everyone’s had very different reactions to my physique. Somebody who came to see the show said to me, “Don’t you think you’re in too good of shape for this? No one looked like that in the 1950s.” But I watched a lot of movies from that time period. Because Paul Newman had been in the original Broadway production of Picnic, I watched a lot of Paul Newman movies like “Cool Hand Luke” and “The Long, Hot Summer,” where he played a homeless drifter, and he was in incredible shape — ripped, tan, and glistening. So I didn’t find myself to be out of line when I was physically preparing for the role.

You were only 12 when you moved to the United States. That’s not exactly the most ideal age to be different.
SS:
Yeah, it was an interesting time. I really didn’t want to be different at all. I lost my accent — although it still comes out every once in a while — but I just wanted to be like everyone else. It took me a few years to finally realize that I should actually embrace where I come from, because it’s something that sets me apart. In my head, that’s sort of what Hal’s trying to do too. Hal’s desperately trying to be someone he thinks he should be and someone he thinks will fit it. Finally, he comes across someone, Madge, who basically says, “Listen, dude, calm down and stop trying to be someone else, because I like you for you.” The peace of mind he discovers at the end of the play is that it’s OK to own who you are.
