Josh Lucas也要進攻電視圈了啊!!

雖然說我私心希望他繼續當個電影明星,但演電視也不錯啦!
一樣的道理,可以週週有戲追。
Josh近年多半參與獨立電影的演出,台灣根本不會推出,
所以要看到Josh的演出實在很難。

雖然近半年已在《命中注定多個你》和《下流正義》中看到他,都戲份都不多。
但Josh在《命中注定多個你》裡,卻還是害我口水流滿戲院,男女主角都被我冷落一旁。
《下流正義》雖然好看,但戲份太少,
不過這些遺憾馬上即可由《黑色豪門企業》補足了!

NBC翻拍阿湯哥的經典電影《黑色豪門企業》,本來吸引力就不小了!
畢竟我也曾迷過John Crisham的小說。
現在由Josh來接演Mitchell McDeere,吸引力更是強大。
但前有珠玉阿湯哥,難免比較,壓力也是不小。
不過影集篇幅長,有電影沒有的優勢,希望可以有自己的風格。

影集的設定在是電影故事發生的十年後,和「Nikita」一樣。
不重覆電影的故事線可以免除背負包袱外,又有更寬廣的劇情可發展。

Yeah!! 超期待啊!!

Josh Lucas in 'The Firm': Thankless task or golden opportunity?

by Jeff Labrecque
2011.06.09


Though there’s no established rules, movies typically get translated into television shows, and vice versa, in one of two ways. A movie becomes a hit, like M*A*S*H, and the studio arranges to bring those characters to the small screen quickly thereafter. Or, a classic television show, like The Fugitive, is relaunched as a movie decades later for a new generation of fans. Rarely do you see what NBC is currently attempting: resurrecting a movie, The Firm, as a television series — 18 years after the Tom Cruise hit. Yes, In the Heat of the Night successfully pulled off a similar trick — 21 years after the original film — but typically, networks aren’t looking that far in the past for their next hit show.

That said, there’s some hope for NBC’s mid-season replacement. One, they have the John Grisham fanbase that bought 7 million copies of The Firm, a fanbase that, no disrespect to Cruise and director Sydney Pollack, rather preferred the book to the film. Two, they have a handsome, likable movie star willing to step in Cruise’s shoes: Josh Lucas. The 39-year-old Arkansan is as suited for attorney Mitchell McDeere’s skin as the more-intense Cruise ever was, and the idea of him picking up the story 10 years after the events of the film has merit. People may always identify Cruise with the character, but it’s not like Lucas is resurrecting Top Gun‘s Maverick or Jerry Maguire. After a few well-written episodes, Lucas can put his own stamp on the character, just as Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alan Alda did on Buffy and M*A*S*H, respectively.

Why do you think networks don’t look to older movies more often when they’re ordering pilots? Does Tom Cruise’s Firm cast such an imposing shadow to threaten NBC’s series, or do you think that Lucas can very quickly make the role his own? What TV versions of characters, in addition to Gellar and Alda, equaled or surpassed the original cinematic portrayals? (Can I get some love for Robert Hays’ alien in TV’s Starman?)

婕兮亂語:
其實這篇有講到婕兮的隱憂耶!
接阿湯哥的棒,真的很吃力不討好耶!

就算Josh Lucas的演技修為可以重新演繹出不同風格的Mitchell McDeere,
但觀眾的刻板印象還是很難改變的。
18年,說長不長,短亦不短。尤其是重看管道發達,年輕人不見得沒看過。
再加上《黑色豪門企業》的主要觀眾群也不會太年輕。

就算像文中提及的,Mitchell McDeere不是其它阿湯哥更著名的角色,
如Maverick或Jerry Maguire那般不可取代,
但還是有一定的難度。

眼下,只能希望不論幕後劇本或台前演出,
都能有令人眼睛一亮的表現,
令Josh Lucas小螢幕首戰之途可以順順利利。

Josh Lucas To Star In NBC's 'The Firm'

by NELLIE ANDREEVA
2011.06.01


Meet television's Mitchell McDeere. Josh Lucas is in final negotiations to play the lead in NBC's midseason drama The Firm, marking his first major TV series gig. The series, based on the hit Paramount feature starring Tom Cruise as McDeere and on John Grisham's best-selling novel, picks up the story 10 years after the events of the film and novel. As a young associate, McDeere brought down a prestigious Memphis law firm, which operated as a front for the Chicago mob -- and his life was never the same. After a difficult decade, which included a stay in the Federal Witness Protection program, Mitch and his family now emerge from isolation to reclaim their lives and their future -- only to find that past dangers are still lurking and new threats are everywhere. The Firm is produced by Entertainment One in association with Sony Pictures TV Networks and Paramount Pictures, with Grisham, Lukas Reiter, John Morayniss, Michael Rosenberg and Noreen Halpern executive producing. Lucas has been heavily pursued for series in the past few years but had largely stayed away before he responded to the script for The Firm. The WME-repped actor was most recently seen in the feature adaptation of another best-selling novel about an attorney, The Lincoln Lawyer. He just wrapped Medalian and will next be seen in Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar, in which he plays Charles Lindbergh, and Red Dog.
