,news Comments Off on James Marsden, the World’s Handsomest Man, is Back in “Westworld”
For one of GQ’s three October cover stories, we took a road trip from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara in a very handsome car (the Porsche 718 Boxster) to stay at a very handsome hotel (the San Ysidro Ranch) with a very handsome actor (James Marsden, the star of HBO’s new dystopian robot theme park drama Westworld). The purpose was twofold: to figure out why someone who should so clearly be a huge movie star isn’t just yet, and to have that dashing man show us how to wear a suit
How famous is James Marsden? He’s a movie star, sure, at least in the literal sense that he is a person who regularly stars in movies. He has all the required movie-star components: charm, talent, a face so obviously beautiful that he played a mutant who wears goggles to avoid blinding other X-Men with his piercing blue eyes. At this very moment, he looks like a movie star against the red interior of the Porsche he’s driving on the 101 Freeway. So far, though, Marsden’s gifts have not brought him full-blown movie stardom, but rather a long and lucrative career playing characters who look like movie stars but lose the girl or their lives to the movie’s actual star. Over his 22-year run—a surprisingly broad résumé of franchises (X-Men, Superman Returns), family blockbusters (Hop, Enchanted), love stories (27 Dresses, The Notebook), films about cooperative loft spaces used for murdering mistresses (The Loft), and genial self-mockery (30 Rock, Anchorman 2)—he has experienced this fate so often that he offers the insight that “if I’m in the movie and there’s another dude, we know how the movie ends.” James Marsden describes the act of Marsdening thus: “losing the girl to some other guy who’s got a little more charisma than him.”
Does this bum Marsden out? Shit no! “I should be working at the Dairy Queen,” he says, then mocks his Okie guilelessness with an “aw shucks” fist swing and a “Golly gee, I’m milquetoast!” But he’s right: How many people who grew up thrashing old cars in Oklahoma City are now behind the wheel of a Boxster 718 S, driving to the super-nice San Ysidro Ranch hotel in Santa Barbara?

US actor and model James Marsden, known for his role as Cyclops in the X-Men movie series, was seen on a romantic getaway in the Riviera Nayarit with his girlfriend, British singer-songwriter Edei. They seemed very much in love as they enjoyed the luxurious accommodations of The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort.
The Hollywood actor and the young chanteuse visited Las Islas Marietas as part of their experience, which also included the two signature activities of the St. Regis Punta Mita: the champagne ritual, which consists of opening a bottle with a sword; and the fishing ritual that takes place when the boats arrive with the catch of the day so the guests can choose their own fish and let the chef know how they’d like it prepared.
Originally from Oklahoma, Marsden has been featured in dozens of action and drama flicks, among them Superman Returns and The Notebook.
,photo Comments Off on Westworld: New details emerge on HBO drama
EW has four new looks at HBO’s buzzy new fall drama Westworld. Below are are quartet of exclusive images and comments from the cast about the sci-fi Western, which chronicles a futuristic theme park where robotic “hosts” entertain human guests.
Let’s start first with this shot of star Anthony Hopkins. Turns out Game of Thrones isn’t the only HBO drama with a wall of faces – Hopkins’ Dr. Robert Ford, who runs the park, also has a creepy face-wall behind his desk. Hopkins says producers initially described his role as cross between Walt Disney and Dr. Frankenstein. “He wants to create a pure dystopia or utopia, but he begins to realize that he’s lost track of it,” Hopkins says.
Here’s Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood), a naive prairie girl “host” who gradually begins to realize her reality might not be what it seems. For the actors, playing androids is particularly challenging because everything a host does must have some logical purpose. “Every little beat, every moment and every flicker of your eye means something,” Wood says.

EXCLUSIVE: Ben-Hur‘s Toby Kebbell, X-Men‘s James Marsden and Bad Teacher‘s Lucy Punch have joined Sofia Vergara and others in the cast of Whitney Cummings’ comedy The Female Brain. Based on the book by neuro-psychiatrist Louann Brizendine, Female Brain looks at the inner workings and complex power of brain chemistry among couples at different stages of their relationships and focuses on five couples who are struggling with each other — whether its commitments issues, parenting or simply admitting to being useless around the house.
Cummings is also starring and making her directorial debut on the project after adapting the book with Neal Brennan. The film is being financed by Black Bicycle Entertainment and produced by Erika Olde and Night and Day Pictures’ Michael Roiff, who earlier this year was nominated for four Tony Awards.

Crayen news Comments Off on James Marsden’s not afraid of bold attire
James Marsden always includes at least one bold element in his outfits.
The American actor began his career in television shows such as Party of Five before becoming a bona fide Hollywood star in hits like as 2007’s Hairspray and the X-Men franchise.
James is also no stranger to the fashion world, having modelled for Italian fashion brand Versace in the past. Accordingly, he likes to keep an eye on trends and isn’t afraid to branch out into new styles, as long as his look remains cohesive.
