Australian press continues to post promotional interviews Hugo did for Oranges and Sunshine. The latest two are both from the Herald Sun. One is a formal interview about the new film, the other a roundup of brief thoughts on other subjects, including yet another affirmation that the Transformers movies aren’t what he considers a highlight in his career. 😉 Also, Hugo salutes the late Australian actor Bill Hunter (his costar in Priscilla and three earlier movies). At the end of the Reel Thing interview, Hugo also fills in a tiny bit of info on his forthcoming project Cloud Atlas: “That’s a project that’s really exciting because all the actors will be playing more than one role…I actually have six characters in the same film and they are all different people in six different stories.”
Since the print version of the article includes a new pic of Hugo and both of the online pieces, I’ll embed that below.
For a larger-size version of the article, go here. Hugo was also interviewed by FilmInk and Inside Film while promoting Oranges and Sunshine; I’m working on getting copies of those articles as well. Looks like it’s going to be a very busy year for him, with something for everyone. 😉 So there will definitely be more to come.
Those waiting for the stateside version of Uncle Vanya will be pleased to learned that the Sydney original reaped record profit for the STC. You can read more about that in the Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian and Broadway World. You can watch the trailer (or watch it again, heh heh) here. Tickets for the Kennedy Center engagement go on sale to the general public on June 10.
