    I want to see him join the cast of FX’s Justified.

  2. I can’t think of any ‘surprise’ Oscar nomination that would please me more than seeing Hawkes get a Supporting Actor nod. Of course, I’d love to see Winter’s Bone and Toy Story 3 run the boards, but I digress…

    For the first couple of his scenes I knew his face seemed familiar to me. Then I realized that he was the guy from the beginning of Miami Vice. And that he had a 6 or so episode run in Season 6 of Lost, and other smaller roles sprinkled through the years.

    He was fantastic in WB. It would be nice if he got a nom, but the push will be focused on Lawrence, and I don’t think he would be angered by that.

    When I have time I’ll check out this full interview.

    Don’t forget Deadwood. Hawkes is awesome.

  5. Jux says:

    He was great in Identity.

    This guy is awesome.

    Loved how resigned he was to his own impulses. When he leaves at the end of the movie theres no pleading or reasoning, no tear drenched “it doesn’t have to be like this” speech. Just a look from the family knowing he’s likely going to his death. This was such an incredible movie.

    And I think the sheriff was a Deadwood alumni as well. The guy who shot Hickock?

  8. Paul MD (Stella's Boy) says:

    Garret Dillahunt had two roles on Deadwood, Francis Wolcott and Jack McCall.

“Well, actually, of that whole group that I call the post-60s anti-authority auteurs, a lot of them came from television. Peckinpah’s the only one whose television work represents his feature work. I mean, like the only one. Mark Rydell can direct a really good episode of ‘Gunsmoke’ and Michael Ritchie can direct a really good episode of ‘The Big Valley,’ but they don’t necessarily look like The Candidate. But Peckinpah’s stuff, even the scripts he wrote that he didn’t even direct, have a Peckinpah feel – the way I think there’s a Corbucci West – suggest a Peckinpah West. That even in his random episodes that he wrote for ‘Gunsmoke’ – it’s right there.”

“The thought is interrupted by an odd interlude. We are speaking in the side room of Casita, a swish and fairly busy Italian bistro in Aoyama – a district of Tokyo usually so replete with celebrities that they spark minimal fuss. Kojima’s fame, however, exceeds normal limits and adoring staff have worked out who their guest is. He stops mid-sentence and points up towards the speakers, delighted. The soft jazz that had been playing discreetly across the restaurant’s dark, hardwood interior has suddenly been replaced with the theme music from some of Kojima’s hit games. Harry Gregson-Williams’ music is sublime in its context but ‘Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots’ is not, Kojima acknowledges, terribly restauranty. He pauses, adjusting a pair of large, blue-framed glasses of his own design, and returns to the way in which games have not only influenced films, but have also changed the way in which people watch them. “There are stories being told [in cinema] that my generation may find surprising but which the gamer generation doesn’t find weird at all,” he says.
