Ed Norton Met With Inmates to Prep for Role: I'm "Indebted" to Them
Ed Norton, at the New York premiere of his latest thriller "Stone" last night, said he took many of his acting cues from the inmates he met in Detriot to help him prepare for his role as a convict in the film starring Robert De Niro and Milla Jovovich.
Jake Gyllenhaal recently showed his brotherly love for sis Maggie and said he'll always be there for his older sibling.
Speaking from a director's chair on stage at the SVA Theater in Chelsea during The New Yorker Festival Saturday night, the hunky actor said he was in the middle of shooting a film but rushed to be by his sister's side when she was nominated for an Academy Award for "Crazy Heart" earlier this year.
"Had I missed out on that moment that would have been awful," Gyllenhaal said. "I got no sleep and was a cranky person, but I was there and that was what mattered to me."
He added, "Anyway, I love her a lot."
The actor, whose latest film "Love and Other Drugs" with Anne Hathaway is out next month, didn't rule out the possibility of a silver screen reunion for the siblings, but said the timing and the project had to be right.
"I think it would just take something where either there’s something that I love so much that meant so much to me, and I cared so much and, regardless the size of the role, she would want to be, I would need her to be, a part of. And vice versa," he said.
"We don't go around, 'Oh, let's look for something to work on,' you know?" he said.
