"Joaquin Phoenix’s Commodus in Gladiator was certainly an inspiration for my characterization of Joffrey, that had a big impact, the smirk. It’s interesting sometimes when an audience can empathize with a villain. But to get completely lost in it, it’s exciting just to be intrinsically evil and not to have a speck of good or humanity in their bones."- Jack Gleeson (x)
Mel Brooks: Live at The Geffen will be a one man show where Mel Brooks shares his vast wealth stories throughout his legendary comedy career. It’s a one-off performance that is already sold out, but it seems as though it will be filmed and possibly released in one way or another for the rest of us to enjoy.
We also may not have to wait that long as the performance is next week.
