GARFIELD

Cinderella

boy Bill Murray ("The Royal Tenenbaums") has landed the starring role

in "Garfield" according to today's Variety.

With filming wrapped on the live-action segments of the movie, the comic actor

is now on board to provide the voice for the film's CGI star. 

 

HULK

Director Ang Lee sent "Hulk" star Eric Bana to watch a bout of

Ultimate Fighting to prep him for his role as the big, green rage-a-holic

according to a write-up at Empire

Online.

The U.K. movie mag reports that Bana, along with F/X staffers at ILM were

sent out for a night of "entertainment" arranged by Lee. It turned

they had ringside seats for a night at the brutal Ultimate Fighting competition.

"I really didn't want to do it," Bana told Empire.

"It was just short of finding an illegal bare-knuckle fight somewhere."

However

the actor watched as men pummeled each other into semi-consciousness. 

"I think it was about pure,

unadulterated rage. About being exposed to something very, very primal,"

the actor said of Lee's field trip. "There

were some specifics that I wouldn't like to mention that Ang wanted me to pay

attention to. Interesting, then, but not something I'm in any real hurry to see

again."

Empire

Online presents additional Q & A with Bana in the subscriber-only segment

of the website.

Thanks to Movie City

Geek for the lead.
