With just a few weeks to go before the release of ‘Dom Hemingway’ in UK, Lionsgate has debuted the first TV spot online. Check it out below!
Jude Law found being naked on the ‘Dom Hemingway’ set ”a wonderful release”.
The 40-year-old actor who stars as lead Dom Hemingway in the film of the same name has a couple of nude scenes, one of which shows him walking through what appears to be a vineyard, and he found filming these had a great kind of freedom.
He told Empire magazine: ”I insisted we do the first scene first. I wanted to stroll on set naked and start as I meant to move on. I thought, ‘If I can do that with all the crew around and not care – be graphic and that vulnerable – then we’re going to be alright.’
”Actually, we did it on a test day, it wasn’t even a filming day. And it was a wonderful release, a wonderful sense that everything and anything could go.”
Jude gained 28lbs for his alter-ego by drinking 10 Coca-Cola soft drinks each day, eating calorific foods he also smoked 40 cigarettes daily to get the appearance of a heavy smoker.
The British star admits playing a character who eats, smokes and drinks a lot took its toll on him physically.
He revealed: ”I did get sick of it though. Towards the end, the last couple of weeks, I started to feel physically sick and drained. I was probably drinking too much at night, certainly drinking too much Coke and eating crap food during the day, smoking 40 a day…”
Jude Law, Demian Bichir, Emilia Clarke and the stars of Richard Shepard’s comedy ‘Dom Hemingway’ stopped by THR lounge during TIFF 2013 to discuss their new movie.
First reviews for ‘Dom Hemingway’ are coming online, and it seems Jude’s performance has impressed everyone who got a chance to see the film at the screeining in Toronto. I personally can’t wait for the film to hit the big screen after reading these reviews!
Jude Law is absolutely on fire as Hemingway. Law has had plenty of great performances in his career, but this one is easily my favorite. Law approaches Dom with all of the seriousness of a Shakespeare character. The actor’s commitment to his character makes Hemingway’s unrelenting vanity and spite truly mind-blowing. Sheperd’s vulgar language rolls off Law’s tongue like beautiful poetry. The Oscar-nominated actor also handles the emotional side of the character, but the comedy is where Dom is untouchable. – Collider
Now that Law’s a little older, and a tad more rumpled, he feels like an actor prime for reinvention, and Shepard gives him the opportunity. This is Law as you’ve never seen him before, with a thick (or as he’d pronounce it here- fick) cockney accent, a hard man beard, and a bit of a gut. He’s certainly a long way from Alfie, and he looks cool as hell. I really can’t oversell how amazing Law is here. From his opening five minute monologue where he waxes poetic on the beauty of his penis while getting fellated by another prisoner, Law’s out-of-control good. He also manages to walk the same fine line Brosnan did in Matador, in that he’s probably unhinged, but somehow manages to stay likable. You see, underneath it all, Dom has a good heart, and just wants to do right by his daughter. And, if he can possibly get rich while doing about a pound of cocaine and sleeping with every prostitute in sight, that’s all the better. [...] Law’s going to win himself a lot or new fans with this, his best role in years. It feels like it could be the start of a whole-new facet of his career, as he plays dark comedy really well, and makes a convincing hard-man now that he’s older. To me this played out as one of the breakout hits of TIFF, and is not to be missed. Dom Hemingway is fan-f**king-tastic! – JoBlo.com
