Chris Pine learns acting tips from Kevin Costner

Jan 24 2014, 2:38am CST | by

Chris Pine admits he's learnt a lot about acting from Kevin Costner.

The 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' star was initially nervous about working with his Oscar-winning co-star, but the anxieties soon subsided and he started picking up tips and tricks from him.

He said: ''[Kevin] was so wonderful and gracious. There was no patronising happening. I think just by watching him you gain so much.

''Kevin just has a comfort in front of the screen. He's been a movie star for so long - he knows how to do it. And you just watch.''

The 32-year-old actor - who took over the role of Jack Ryan from previous franchise stars Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck - also praised the film's director Kenneth Branagh.

He explained to Access Hollywood: ''By watching Ken being around people that have been in the business and that have worked at that level, you can only add to your experience and your bag of tools.''

Meanwhile, Chris has struck up a close friendship with co-star Keira Knightley while filming the new spy thriller and admits working with the Oscar nominee was a ''wonderful experience''.

He said previously: ''I don't know if I've ever had more fun with an actress. She could not have been any more professional. She's younger than I am and she's done probably three times more films than I have. She'd show up, super smart, friendly, charming, in it, in the moment, and then she'd wrap. There was zero drama with Keira Knightley. It was the most lovely, wonderful experience you could ask for.''

21 Outstanding Actor Turned Director Debuts: I Really Want to Direct!

Sep 18 2014 2:35pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

They say in Hollywood that everyone who is an actor or actress, really wants to direct. It's an old saying, that has almost become cliche.  Many actors and actresses do try to helm their own movies, and more often than not, it does not work out all that well.  Others, do it as brilliantly as some of our most esteemed directors and several have even won Oscar gold for Best Director in the ...

Alexa Davalos Cast in Amazon’s ‘The Man in the High Castle’ TV Series

Sep 9 2014 5:30pm CDT | Source: slash film

The Man in the High Castle is among the more well-known Philip K. Dick novels, perhaps because it explores a premise many people have perhaps mused upon at some point in their lives: what if Germany and Japan won World War II? The novel is set in the early ’60s in an America that is occupied in the east by Germany and in the west by Japan, with a stretch of “free” land in the middle. Years of development attempts have so far failed to yield a TV or film a ...

Review: Even With Standard Weapons 'The November Man' Still Excites

Aug 29 2014 8:57am CDT | Source: First Showing

What's that? Pierce Brosnan needs a new action franchise now, 12 years after his James Bond stint ended? There's a series of novels ripe for the action genre taking that would suit him perfectly? Let's make that deal. But The November Man, from the novels by Bill Granger, ends up being more than a run-of-the-mill spy thriller. Aided by some superb action directing from Roger Donaldson and a nice turn from its charisma ...
