James Marsden may be one of the dreamiest men on the planet, but he never gets the girl. “27 Dresses” aside, he’s almost always the nice guy in films who can’t catch a break when it comes to love. Need examples? Just watch “The Notebook,” “Enchanted” or “Superman Returns.”
But maybe now Marsden’s finally getting lucky — he’s guest starring alongside Tina Fey on “30 Rock” when it makes its mid-season return. However, the actor was terribly tight-lipped about his stint on the NBC comedy when asked at the Savannah Film Festival last week.
“I can’t tell you anything. I am doing a six-episode stint on the show, kind of like what Matt Damon did last year,” Marsden told The Huffington Post. Read the rest of this entry »

ConnectSavannah.com has posted a new interview from Jimmy, thanks to b for the tip!
Is there a plus or a minus side to being closely identified with the X–Men franchise? A typecast point where you’d say “I don’t want to be the guy who’s in all the X–Men movies”?

It was something that certainly put me on the map. As well as being financially lucrative, they also were really well–made movies and were reviewed really well. Read the rest of this entry »
