This is the official kick-off for a new project for Rachel McAdams Online: “Rachel McAdams Exclusive” which is a countdown to celebrate our upcoming 7 Year Anniversary in June. We will try to post regular updates with a RMO Exclusive stories like fan encounter, interviews, or another (suprise) update related to Rachel and her career with people who met or worked with Rachel throughout the years. It’s not only a celebrating for our anniversary, but also for the wonderful career Rachel had so far, and will have in the future.
Our first exclusive is with actor Jett Anderson. He is Rachel’s co-star in the upcoming untitled Terrence Malick Project. Accroding to IMDB he plays Brad, Rachel’s character’s husband. As you may know Jane is the character Rachel is playing in the movie. Read our exclusive interview below:
• How did you get involved in the upcoming Terrence Malick Project, did you audition with Rachel?
I answered an “open” casting call for extras… I understand that some 7,000 people answered that same casting call. About 2 months later I received a phone call suggesting they had a role I may be interested in. I tried out with several others (not sure exactly how many), and I landed the role. I did not audition with Rachel. A week later I was on the set with Rachel McAdams, Terrence Malick and others.
• How was it working with director Terrence Malick and his upcoming project?
Mr. Malick was a prince of a man. Even though it was my first major production, he treated me no different than he did any of the others. He had total vision for exactly what he had in mind. The man is an artist. What a privilege to have the opportunity to work with him.
• How was it working with Rachel McAdams, we know you play Brad her husband?
Ha ha, I can neither confirm nor deny the actual part I played 😉 But I can tell you Rachel was so gracious. The ultimate professional. She encouraged me every step of the way… and only spoke words of encouragement between shoots. She genuinely asked about “me” and my life – total grace in action. A genuine class act. Total lady. Think about my position: Rachel went from Sherlock Holmes, with Robert Downey Jr.; then Morning Glory, with Harrison Ford, to our set with Ben Affleck… and little ol’ me. And Rachel never let on like there was any difference.
I hope I have the opportunity to work with Rachel again in the future.
• We know you can not give us any details about the movie itself, but maybe you can you give us a (Rachel-related) anecdote?
One scene we shot began inside a barn, and as the scene ran, we walked outside the barn. It was early morning and around 50 degrees, so it was a little cool after being out there so long. After one of the takes, Rach and I were standing outside talking, and she asked me, “Want to go inside the barn and get warm?” Once inside the barn I smiled my lop-sided grin and said, “You know, ‘wanna go inside the barn and get warm’, means something totally different in Oklahoma than it does where you come from.” [laughs]
Needless to say, I would’ve been more than happy to “get warm” with Ms. McAdams. Did I also mention her great since of humor? [laughs]
• What can we expect from the movie?
What I gather, there will be love stories that intertwine with unexpected curves and a richness that only Malick could pull out of a dramatic love story.
Thanks for the chance to brag on one of the most beautiful people, inside and out, in Hollywood.
