Jeremy Irvine created fake showreel for War Horse

Dec 8 2012, 4:20am CST | by

Jeremy Irvine created a showreel of fake work to land his job in 'War Horse.'

The 22-year-old actor - who had his breakthrough role in the hit movie - became so obsessed to finally get a job he resorted to hiring cameras and filming the showreel before passing it off as real to agents.

He said: ''I was making show reels with my friend - this is basically how I got 'War Horse'. I spent a year making this four-minute thing, and I went around agents telling them it was professional work.

''Looking back, it's embarrassing, but I made lots of clips. I did a bit of 'King Lear,' I did a few other scenes from things with different costumes, and made it look as though I'd done a load of work!''

The star - who is dating singer Ellie Goulding - admits his fame has made it even harder for him to have a relationship and he says he was star struck on the set of his latest film 'Great Expectations.'

He said: ''Let's just say it wasn't easy to go on dates before all this [fame] and it sure isn't easy now.

''A lot of it is still guess work. Of course, walking onto a set with people like Ralph Fiennes [as Magwitch] and Helena Bonham Carter [as Miss Havisham], you are going to be a bit like, 'God, that's Helena Bonham Carter, you know?'

''I'm just this snotty-nosed little new kid. But you just try desperately not to think about it.''

Get a Jump Scare with New Woman in Black: Angel of Death Trailer

Oct 10 2014 10:26am CDT | Source: beyond hollywood

Yeah, I know, leading you into a scene (using a innocent kid, no less) and then throwing a jump scare at you with fancy quick cut editing is a bit of a cheat, but hey, it kind of works. Anyhoos. Take a gander at a new trailer for the Brit horror sequel “The Woman in Black: Angel of Death,” take a ganderers. I guess Harry Potter was wielding some weak magic, since he apparently didn’t manage to kill the old broad in the first movie after all. England, 1941 With London in the midst of ...

New Teaser for THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGEL OF DEATH Introduces the Title Character

Oct 10 2014 9:35am CDT | Source: Collider

I remember being a little underwhelmed by The Woman in Black when I first saw it in 2012.  It was a well made movie, but fell firmly into the category of "not my thing" despite the fact that I'm a huge horror nut.  Most fans disagreed with me though and the movie made an impressive sum of money on a relatively small budget.  If you saw the ending of that film, it will come as no surprise that Daniel Radcliffe doesn't return in the ...

THE REACH Review | TIFF 2014

Sep 9 2014 7:33pm CDT | Source: Collider

I like the premise of humans hunting other humans for sport because it’s delightfully ludicrous and perversely entertaining.  It’s a lean, direct concept that removes the frills to become a battle of wits between the hunter and “the most dangerous game”.  For the majority of its runtime, Jean-Baptiste Léonetti’s The Reach sits comfortably inside this framework.  The story takes the occasional shortcut, but it also works in some subtext about economic i ...
