Ok this is what we have been informed, and I daresay we will hear more on the topic!
I'd like to see
more on the subject!
I know we won't be able to see the independent film yet because it was just filmed, but if you happen to have clips from G vs. E, or from the short film VIGIL, I'd love to see them. I know some people don't like to see their favorite 'nice guy' actors play roles that are rougher around the edges (or downright nasty) -- admittedly, it's difficult for me to watch sometimes, too -- but I still like to see the variety. Especially when the actor isn't afraid of the challenge.
When I was a music major in college, my voice teacher told me to take acting classes, in order to get more comfortable with myself and my body as an all-around performer. Taking those acting classes was incredibly difficult for me -- I found myself enjoying the challenge, even feeling a high on those rare days when scenes or moments fell into place and felt wonderfully natural, but most of the time I struggled because I couldn't get out of my head. I fell back into a long-held mindset that I was supposed to follow the 'rules' and do what the teacher said and do it perfectly... but in acting, I've found, there are no hard or fast rules; you've got to let yourself go and stop thinking so damn much (at least, in my case, I think it's true).
That's why I admire TJ so much, whatever role he's playing. He seems to have a natural ability to let go, unafraid of whatever emotions or actions come up in the scene, ready to let things happen. It's not
easy. And it's definitely more impressive than I could ever fully express.
