Alexandra Wolfe, Weekend WSJ: Sarsgaard, “Blue Jasmine”

Mr. Fabulous:  Peter Sarsgaard

Mr. Fabulous: Peter Sarsgaard

One of the biggest things about the current season of “The Killing” (self’s current TV fascination) is Peter Sarsgaard.

Self caught the episode where he sneaks a razor blade out of a bar of soap and into his mouth during a prison shower (He plays a Death Row inmate) and was smitten for the rest of the season.  This weekend’s WSJ has an Alexandra Wolfe interview with the actor.  Most of the best parts aren’t about “The Killing,” though: they’re about Sarsgaard in Woody Allen’s new movie, “Blue Jasmine,” which frankly self wasn’t planning to watch until she read this:

Friday marked the opening of the new Woody Allen movie, “Blue Jasmine,” in which he plays a role new to his repertoire — a pretentious, distracted diplomat who is the love interest of the fallen socialite Jasmine (Cate Blanchett).  He spends most of the film blissfully unaware that she is having a nervous breakdown.

This passage was frankly hilarious:

While filming “Blue Jasmine,” there was no rehearsal and no talking on the set.  Everyone just showed up to work, leading to the sort of existential angst often evoked in Woody Allen movies.  “We’re so used to being led around by directors, producers and everyone else that, if you’re suddenly empowered by someone like this, it can be alarming,” says Mr. Sarsgaard.  The cast would ask, “But who am I?  Where do I come from?”

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
