Gedestirrerne (Da Obi-Wan mødte The Dude)

I dag udkommer "The Men Who Stare At Goats" på dvd og Blu-ray. Jeg anmeldte Grant Heslovs krigskomedie for Filmmagasinet Ekko, da den havde dansk biografpremiere:

I februar mødte jeg Ewan McGregor i Berlin. Det egentlige emne var "Roman Polanskis Skyggen", men vi fik også tid til at snakke om Ewans samarbejde med Jeff Bridges, alias The Dude, i den film, som Sandrew Metronomes marketingfolk seriøst overvejede at kalde "Gedestirrerne" på dansk i cirka ét minut.

Ewan McGregor livede synligt op, da han fortalte følgende anekdote fra en typisk dag med Jeff Bridges på settet:
Our first scene together was the acid trip scene. That was quite a brilliant baptism to be working with The Dude, pretending we're tripping on acid.

We had to come out of this room into a corridor, and in the room there was this old keyboard, I guess it was a prop. But Jeff went, "Oh man, they put this here for us". He plugged it in, and he started playing all this weird freaky music, like he was tripping on acid, "Ooooooooh yeah, man".

The keyboard had just been put there, because it was in the way! But he thought it was there so that we could prepare ourselves for this weird vibe.

Did he seem like The Dude? Oh yeah. He's definitely The Dude!
