The Dude's abode from 'The Big Lebowski' is on the market, man
If Chunky Bracelets for Men Become a New Trend? "I'll Take the Blame for It. I'll Start a Line of Them."
When you read the script and you realize, 'I'm playing the classic Western man with no name,' how much fun is that?
Craig: I was given the script, I read it, and I found my people, and I said, "That's amazing; it's great. I'd love to see this movie. I don't know why I'm in it." I sat down with (screenwriters) Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman and Jon (Favreau), and we talked about it. They said, "We want you to do it; we want you in it." It was a dream come true.
Was there a blink factor from the title, trying to reconcile the idea of how quick and brief the mental image of the title gives you versus the fullness of the film?
Craig: Those two things were one of the biggest appeals that there was no shying away from the fact this is what it's called. We're not going to change the title. It's not "Lonergan's Progress" or "Dolarhyde's Dilemma": it's "Cowboys and Aliens," and that's what happens. Within that, you hire the best talent you can and a great director, and you tell a story. I hope the audience is going to get whipped up enough by the story and emotionally involved with the characters enough to care for them when the s**t hits the fan.

On Makeovers, Comedy and Bein' Smooth with the Ladies
In "Crazy, Stupid, Love.", Steve Carell plays a long-married man whose imploding life-long marriage leaves him adrift and lost -- the perfect kind of human jetsam for smooth seducer Ryan Gosling to meet, mentor and make-over after childhood sweetheart Julianne Moore pulls the adult trick of crushing his heart. Carell's character, flailing and failing, is the center of "Crazy, Stupid, Love." -- with the intriguing irony that Carell's never been more in control of his career; the comedy marks the first release backed by his own production company. We spoke with Carell in New York.
This film looks at a lot of big relationship issues and a lot of things about truth, but let's talk about the tough stuff first: You get a pretty good makeover.
Carell: I do.
Was that gratifying to see that happen?
Carell: Yeah, I needed it.
You're certainly a stylish gentleman in the real world.
Carell: For sure.
When they slump you down and then you get to twirl as if by magic and you're like Cinderella at the ball with Ryan Gosling --
Carell: It's a dream come true.
