Max Winkler Talks about Lee in a MTV Interview

Feb 5 • by Gel • No CommentsLee News

Ceremony direct, Max Winkler, talks a bit about Lee in this interview with MTV.

MTV: From what we see in the trailer, it looks like we’ll be seeing a more mischievous side of Lee Pace, which is awesome.

Winkler: Lee Pace is like a stone cold master. To me he is King Lear status. He went to Julliard and he can do almost anything. He can do anything. He delivered lines in a way that I never imagined and so much better than I envisioned them in my head, he was unbelievable. He brought a real human quality to this character who might be a bad guy in a different movie but you really feel for him because of what a great actor he is.

Lee Pace as Superman?

Dec 12 • by Gel • 2 CommentsLee News

Fused Film put together a list of 5 actors they could see play the infamous caped superhero, Superman. They listed Lee as one of their choices! Here’s what they had to say:

Lee Pace – Another mid-westerner, this 31 year old is from Chickasha, Oklahoma. Pace is a classically trained actor spending time in the theater after graduation from Juliard. Pace starred in several off-Broadway plays, including The Credeaux Canvas and The Fourth Sister. He also starred in a production of Craig Lucas’s Small Tragedy. For this role, he was nominated for a Lucille Lortel Award as Outstanding Actor. In 2006, Pace starred in the two-character play Guardians by Peter Morris. This role earned Pace his second nomination for a Lucille Lortel Award as Outstanding Actor.

Pace played Aaron Tyler in the acclaimed but short-lived 2004 television series Wonderfalls, which was co-created by Bryan Fuller. Later, Fuller cast Pace in the lead role of Ned in the series Pushing Daisies, which debuted on ABC in October 2007 and returned for its second, and final season, on October 1, 2008. Pace has also appeared on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit in season 3, episode 18 ‘Guilt’. Pace was recently cast in the new HBO pilot The Miraculous Year. What I like most about Pace is his classic Chris Reeves meets George Lazenby look. He would be an interesting choice for Supes but a welcome one for me.

HBO pulls the plug on ‘the Miraculous Year’

Nov 10 • by Gel • No CommentsLee News

Some unfortunate news…

HBO has opted not to proceed with John Logan’s hourlong pilot The Miraculous Year, which was directed by Kathryn Bigelow. I hear that the appeal of the project — an exploration into a high-powered New York family: a self-distructive Broadway composer (Norbert Leo Butz), his powerful painter father Alex (Frank Langella) and his attorney sister Mandy Vance (Hope Davis) — was probably too narrow. The cast of the pilot also included Eddie Redmayne, Linus Roache and Patti LuPone as well as guest stars Susan Sarandon and Lee Pace.
