An award called 'Kevin Kline'
www.stltoday.com

A few years back, when Kevin Kline was playing a man with cancer in "Life as a House," he happened to run into Tom Hanks, who had played a man with AIDS in "Philadelphia." Kline remembers what he asked Hanks:

"How much weight do I need to lose for a nomination?"

You're not supposed to care about those things, and Kline knows it. The best American actor of his generation, he appreciates that making art ought to be its own reward. Furthermore, he's in the enviable position of making art - mainly onstage, mainly in the classics - while making "ludicrous" amounts of money, as he puts it, in the movies.

Besides, he already has awards, oodles of them, including the biggest prizes in his field. Kline's figurative mantel boasts the Oscar he won for best supporting actor in "A Fish Called Wanda" and two Tony awards for best actor in a musical, for "On the Twentieth Century" and "The Pirates of Penzance."

A nice article about Kevin and Phoebe's son, Owen.

*****

Owen Kline
www.time.com

Frank, the 12-year-old in The Squid and the Whale, gets a double dose of bad luck. The breakup of his parents' marriage comes just as Frank has hit puberty—hit it like a crash-test dummy slamming into a granite wall. In no time he has become a heavy drinker and a chronic masturbator while somehow remaining a sweet, devoted kid. The great trick is in the "somehow." Somehow Owen Kline embodied that bundle of complexities, found the pathos and comedy in poor Frank's turmoil.

Breeding plays a part. Owen, 14, is the son of actors Kevin Kline and Phoebe Cates. Serendipity helps too. Write-director Noah Baumbach had shown his script to friends Kline and Cates. When he was having trouble casting the role of Frank, his wife Jennifer said, "We need someone like Owen, someone who is soulful and funny." Cates and Kline let their son audition and, when he was chosen, were on the set with him. The "tough" scenes (spilling his seed in school, trying on his first condom) were the easiest, Baumbach says: "It actually was just faking things." The real challenge came when Owen had to cry. "When the parents announce that they're breaking up, we did that scene a few times," says Baumbach, "and Owen really could cry in each one. It was very touching and at the same time so impressive. It's talent."

Kline and Jovovich Come to America [Nov. 7th, 2005|03:49 am]

Kline and Jovovich Come to America
The Hollywood Reporter

Kevin Kline and Milla Jovovich are poised to star in the sex trafficking drama Welcome to America, which will be released by Lions Gate Films in North America, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on "The Girls Next Door," a January 2003 New York Times Magazine cover story by Peter Landesman about sex slavery, "America" was developed by Centropolis partner Roland Emmerich (The Day After Tomorrow) and producer Rosilyn Heller with Oscar-nominated screenwriter Jose Rivera (The Motorcycle Diaries) and up-and-coming German director Marco Kreuzpaintner.

Kline will play a Texas cop who finds out that he may have had a daughter who was trafficked some years ago. In the course of his investigation, he meets a young boy (Mexican actor Cesar Ramos) from Mexico City whose 13-year-old sister (Mexican actress Paulina Gayton) has been kidnapped. They go on a quest to save the Mexican girl, who is befriended by Jovovich, a young Russian woman who thinks she is coming to the U.S. to become a nanny, but is instead enslaved in Mexico.

The film is scheduled to start filming in Mexico City in late November. Emmerich will start shooting his next project, 10,000 B.C., in March.

Baumbach's Brooklyn Break-Up [Oct. 5th, 2005|02:45 am]

Baumbach's Brooklyn Break-Up
comingsoon.net

CS: How did you convince Owen's parents, Kevin Kline and Phoebe Cates, to let him make his movie debut in this?
Baumbach: The Klines were friends, and I actually had a very hard time casting that part. My girlfriend said, "You need someone like Owen" and finally after a lot of trial and error with different kids, I asked them. They read the script because I'd shown it to them as friends, and they went for it. I auditioned lots and lots of kids, and both Owen and Jesse really went through a lot. By the time I passed them, I felt pretty confident.

Director Altman is a commanding presence [Aug. 24th, 2005|08:13 pm]

Director Altman is a commanding presence
Associated Press

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Kevin Kline is in the zone. The Academy Award-winning actor is so focused on his role as hard-boiled gumshoe Guy Noir that he doesn't notice he's cut his finger as he shoots a scene for the "A Prairie Home Companion" movie in the lobby of the Fitzgerald Theater.

Decked out in a pinstriped suit and with his hair slicked back, Kline does take after take, adding funny asides under director Robert Altman's quiet gaze. Kline does a pratfall over a bar counter, pops the cork on a bottle of champagne and drinks a toast with "Saturday Night Live" actress Maya Rudolph, who's playing an assistant stage manager.

"I'm bleeding!" Kline declares at the end of a take.

He holds up a bloody left ring finger as his makeup artist applies a tissue to it.

"I'm surprised he didn't notice it," Rudolph says.

"Notice? Notice? I was acting!" Kline says, sounding like the Master Thespian.

    C.J.: Kline declined for jury duty [Jul. 3rd, 2005|02:23 am]

    C.J.: Kline declined for jury duty
    www.startribune.com

    Doesn't sound as though it pleased the court to let Kevin Kline out of jury duty to shoot the "Prairie Home Companion" movie in St. Paul.

    We heard about this because Minneapolis attorney Clay Taylor was in NYC studying the court system to prepare for a case he's got involving Fubu and Sean John; Puffy is scheduled to testify.

    "I've never tried a case in state court in Manhattan, and they do everything different in New York. The rest of the world doesn't matter; New Yorkers just have their own way of doing it," Taylor said Wednesday. (No need to tell that to a gossip columnist who's had stuff filched by the New York Post's PAGE SIX. Heads up, Richard, this might be another item worth stealing.)

    "Trying to be the diligent lawyer, I went out and spent three days in the courthouse just watching trials."
