Judy Greer in Alexander Payne's The Descendants

Cameron had the wonderful opportunity to talk with Judy Greer for Interview magazine at the time of Elizabethtown‘s release back in late 2005. With her recent Oscar worthy turn in Alexander Payne’s The Descendants, we thought it would be a great time to share it with you. She talks about Elizabethtown, Arrested Development, her ideal role and much more. Enjoy!

Zoo Inspirations: Peter Riegert, Mark Knopfler and Local Hero

Comments Off

Denis Lawson and Peter Riegert in Local Hero

You might have read that Bill Forsythe’s 1983 film Local Hero was a big inspiration for We Bought A Zoo. Not just with Mark Knopfler’s score setting the mood, but creating a world that the main character (and the audience) can get lost in. Cameron took that a step further with a few homages to the film. In Zoo, Kelly mentions that Ben is “our local hero” and one of the films stars, Peter Riegert plays Matt Damon’s boss at the beginning of the film.

Peter sat down for a chat with Reel Life with Jane and discussed working on Zoo, Local Hero and his impressive 40 year career. So head on over and read the interview and if you haven’t see Local Hero, check it out, you won’t be disappointed.
