SAG Awards 2021 - Congratulations to the cast of The Trial of the Chicago 7


Thanks to Amy Komorowski (@akgroomer on Instagram) who took the beautiful
SAG Awards Virtual Red Carpet photos of Eddie wearing Gucci. 

Logging in from around the world were Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne,
Frank Langella, Mark Rylance, John Carroll Lynch, Alex Sharp, and
Kelvin Harrison Jr., cast members of Aaron Sorkin’s historical courtroom drama.

The Trial of the Chicago 7 won the SAG Award
for 'Oustanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture' ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

After winning the guild’s top honor, the cast spoke briefly with The Associated Press
in an interview recorded Thursday before Sunday’s broadcast of the pre-taped awards.

"A lot of credit has to be given to Francine Maisler, who was our casting director.
All of the characters represented in the film were so unique and so specific.
I think she collected a group of actors who had completely different styles and
completely different outlooks on the way to approach work. For me, what I
loved when I got to see a cut of the movie was that you saw that. It was like
a clash of different types of music, whether it was jazz or rock or classical —
but all of that coming together under Aaron. He was the conductor, almost. So
I give Aaron and Francine a huge amount of credit. It was a joy day-and-day-out
to watch these great and different and varied actors slugging it out." 

"Making films is such an odd process. You sort of come together with a disparate
group of people. Sometimes you have rehearsals but on this, we didn’t really have any.
Actors would come in for a day or two. You make the film and you all go away again.
The promoting process, sometimes, can be the moment when you actually all sit down
and get to know each other. The only time we have all met up is on Zoom calls when
someone like yourself is asking the questions. It feels unique. And I feel pretty lucky.
But at the same time, it sort of buries a slight sense of it not feeling complete."

Jessica Chastain announced the news in her Instagram story on 11th March.

and Eddie in Netflix’s anticipated serial killer thriller. Former All-Pro
NFL player-turned-actor and producer Asomugha will play Danny
Baldwin, one of the lead police detectives who works with Chastain’s
character to investigate the deaths.

Stamford, Connecticut, US according to issue 1240 of Production Weekly.

Stamford turning into a film set means more than movie stars walking down
Washington Boulevard. The casting agency is looking for paid extras to play
everyday pedestrians. But there’s also a twist: the team wants contortionists,
sword swallowers, and circus performers, too. (Source: stamfordadvocate)

The movie will shoot on Morgan Street on Thursday (April15) and Friday.
Production will move to Beal Street from April 20 until April 23, and will
resume on April 26, said city spokesperson Arthur Augustyn. Filming times
will run from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., according to signs posted by the film crew.

maybe Emmerich will play the other police detective Tim Braun.
