I am The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day!
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
I quite enjoy this BTS sub-genre of actors celebrating their birthdays on their sets. I ran a few a while back from Son of Frankenstein with Boris Karloff in full Monster gear had some cake with Basil Rathbone. Today we see Peter Ustinov’s birthday while shooting Spartacus.
Ustinov is flanked by Stanley Kubrick and Kirk Douglas. The reader who sent this in pointed out the image of Ustinov on the cake looks freakishly like the older Kubrick. Notice how Kubrick is looking at that prophecy made of icing… it’s almost as if he knows that’s his future.
Tomorrow’s pic is a repeat title, something I’ve covered a few times here, but it’s too good to pass up. A certain somebody is laughing. Talkback trend followers might figure out who is the focus of the photo…

He always looks so displeased with everything. Fits him somehow.

The resemblance is uncanny. You'll never un-see it now.

Harry on the set of Spider-Man during his cameo in the wrestling match scene. It's been almost 10 years, I've seen the movie countless times, and I still can't find the big lug in audience in that frickin' scene.

Wow what is up with this site...seems to still be very buggy. Every time I go to the thread about "what went wrong", it crashes Internet Explorer on me. And the TB formats are just so weird now...all of this must be obvious to everyone but Harry although maybe he realizes it and is 100x as frustrated as we are. Oh well maybe it will rise from the ashes like a phoenix, jean gray version.

have you considered that your problem might be that you're the last person using internet explorer?

Have you scored any photos of Terrence Malick? Now THAT would be a coup.

that is one damn primo pic, and loved that you called our attention to K contemplating the cake, I'm still laughing. That will bring a smile to my wintry mien a few times over the days to come.

I am kind of hankering for Harry's DVD picks for the entire month of December. what gives?!

He really would do anything for a role.

IE is used by 40%+...I'm far from the last person using it. Most websites are constructed in a way so that 40% of their users don't have it crash on them, dumbass.

ain't no news on here.com or ain't no mutha fuckers left here.com I'm not bitching I love this site but it's as dry as the sands of Spartacus these days :(

hang up his black lightsaber and move in to a retirement home

I've always enjoyed those morally shady, 'oily guy who works the system but still has some good in him' type roles - and Peter Ustinov in SPARTACUS is one of the best.<p> Also cool to see Kubrick without the beard, blowing ciggie smoke all over the birthday cake.
Dec. 29, 2010, 6:36 a.m. CST
he has a beard. Apart from that he looks fuck all like an older Kubrick.
Dec. 29, 2010, 7:12 a.m. CST
Pacino and DeNiro have fucked their careers, who must we lean on Nicholson and Hoffman? wtf? Pitt, Clooney and Depp are these the equivalent in this day?
nimrad, no to Pitt and Clooney - the smug that radiates from them is too much to bear.<p> Only our lord and savior Bale remains to guide us to the light.<p> (along with his prophets, of course, Stallone and Statham).

still smells like pussy and liquor. *insert carpet munching joke here* What up cobra man? I am impressed. You have fended off the hoards with nothing but a single broken chop stick. [bows to sensei]

Your mother, father, grandmother, little brother and significant other (if one in fact exists).

The dude directed films like he had mild Aspergers Syndrome. Don't get me wrong, great films - AMAZING films, but Kubrick almost made Scatman Crothers cry with his multiple takes, and dumped Malcolm McDowell as a "friend" as soon as a Clockwork Orange was finished. I'm not a fan of the borderline madness approach to filmmaking. To paraphrase Jack Nicholson, "Stanley knows lights, he knows the light technician, he knows the light technician's son, he knows the light technician's son's orthodontist. Stanley knows lights."

My partner in < p >!<p> With a broken chopstick, a homemade flamethrower and half a gallon of unleaded you and I could take this planet.<p> Any word from the peebers? If you still commune with cheeses_of_nazareth, pls tell him he is missed at this holy time of year.
Partner in 'P' gawdammit!
Dec. 29, 2010, 11:48 a.m. CST
now can we back to filming goddam it." And atkinson, on one hand you have Kubrick and Fincher who films take after take, and the other, Eastwood who's famous for one or two takes. Despite the method, isn't it the result that counts?
Dec. 29, 2010, 12:15 p.m. CST
Yeah good point "H.A.L." but if I'm an actor who worked with both guys, I'd put my money on the Man With No Name. Clint knows what he wants right away. Kubrick would be like, "Okay open the envelop and sip your tea - take 37!" Peter Sellers seemed to be a sucker for punishment seeing how he worked with Kubrick more than once.
Dec. 29, 2010, 2:09 p.m. CST
And it may sound like BS, but like a runner's high, I have heard of actors not complaining about multiple takes because of the love of the craft and minutia of acting, that something happens on take 56 that is like everything coming together for a perfect instant. Could be a load of bull, like I said, I don't know. But yes, if I were an actor, I'd take the Larry the Cable Guy approach, git 'r dun. Okay, you may now shoot me in the head. Please.
