John Lithgow told OnTheRedCarpet.com his latest film, the comedy "The Campaign," makes him proud to be an American.
"Politics has gotten so ugly it's been turning everybody's stomach," Lithgow said at the Los Angeles premiere. "This just...you gotta love America. The fact that this country can generate a movie like this, in the middle of the political season, I think it makes me feel more American than anything."
Will Ferrell may be set to star as Cam Brady in the upcoming comedy "The Campaign," but the actor confessed to OnTheRedCarpet.com that he already had some experience in the political field from his youth.
"I ran in my senior year in high school for senior class council, gave an arousing speech, easily won my council seat, and then I don't think I showed up for any of the council meetings," Ferrell told OnTheRedCarpet.com at the Los Angeles premiere. "I did it for the resume - the college resume. I was very much like Cam Brady who gives great stunt speeches and then when it comes times to governing, is a no show."
"Slumdog Millionaire" actress Freida Pinto sings the praises of her "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" director Rupert Wyatt and said he made the film more "grounded."
"I'm excited for two people as far as this film's concerned and it's Andy Serkis and Rupert Wyatt," Pinto, 26, told OnTheRedCarpet.com co-host Chris Balish at the film's recent Los Angeles premiere.
Tom Felton, who stars in the new movie "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," says he is glad to be a part of a film that is unrelated to "Harry Potter."
"Rise of the Planet of the Apes," which hit theaters on August 5, is a prequel to the film franchise, which depicts the power struggle of apes whose intelligence is boosted via human experimentation.
James Franco is touted as the biggest star in the big budget prequel "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," but the actor thinks that the visual effects company and actor Andy Serkis should get most of the credit for the film.
"Andy had to wear gray pajamas and wires and he had a camera on an arm pointed at his face," Franco told OnTheRedCarpet.com co-host Chris Balish at the film's recent Los Angeles premiere.
Andy Serkis was the most-talked about actor on the "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" red carpet premiere, but you might not recognize his face from the film's trailer.
Serkis portrayed the film's lead chimp, Caesar, using "performance capture" technology created by the Weta Digital special effects team and was universally praised by his live action co-stars. Serkis previously worked with Weta on "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers," where he played Gollum. He also played the behemoth King Kong in Peter Jackson's 2005 film.
John Lithgow brought his superior stage presence to the set of "The Colbert Report" on Thursday to do a dramatic reading of aspiring presidential candidate Newt Gingrich's recent press release after he was accused of racism.
Gingrich famously called President Barack Obama the "most successful food stamp president in history," criticized and then apologized to Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin over Medicare reform and was "glitter bombed" by a Minneapolis protester.
