2014/10/15 James Marsden Talks The Best of Me, Westworld, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and More

Based on the best-selling novel by author Nicholas Sparks, The Best of Me tells the story of two former high school sweethearts, Dawson (James Marsden) and Amanda (Michelle Monaghan), who find themselves reunited after 20 years apart. In their hometown for the funeral of their beloved friend, they are suddenly forced to face the love that they’ve never forgotten, as well as the life that got in their way. The film also stars Luke Bracey, Liana Liberato, Caroline Goodall, Sebastian Arcelus, Jon Tenney and Gerald McRaney.

At the film’s press day, actor James Marsden spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about playing the romantic lead that the audience is rooting for (unlike in his last Nicholas Sparks film), sharing the role with Luke Bracey, getting the first kiss right, and how much he enjoyed working with Michelle Monaghan. He also talked about how he kept his appearance in X-Men: Days of Future Past a secret, as well as what attracted him to the highly anticipated HBO sci-fi/Western series Westworld, how Jonah Nolan sold him on the project, the terrific cast (which includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Rodrigo Santoro and Miranda Otto), and how he hopes that it goes to series so that he’ll get to do more. Check out what he had to say after the jump.

Your first time around with a Nicholas Sparks movie (he was in The Notebook), you were not the guy the audience was rooting for, to get the girl. Read the rest of this entry »

2014/10/15 The Best of Me: James Marsden & Michelle Monaghan on Living “Vicariously” Through Nicholas Sparks

For the stars of The Best of Me, James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan, having Luke Bracey and Liana Liberato play their younger selves was a blessing, and for Marsden a bit of a curse!

“It was great to see Luke go in there and sweep her off her feet. He set the bar a little high for me,” Marsden said in our exclusive video interview, as he and Monaghan laughed. “In the gym, too!”

Bracey and Liberato play Dawson and Amanda as young sweethearts who are basking in the glow of first love. Read the rest of this entry »

Actor James Marsden just dropped $1,834,075 on a Mid Century home in an exclusive neighborhood in the Hollywood Hills!

Built in 1959, the post-and-beam-style home is the quintessential Hollywood Hills home designed for indoor/outdoor living with timeless design.

Inside, Marsden’s new digs has wide spans of open living space and walls of glass that merge the indoors and out. When he needs privacy, James can retreat to a large master suite with a massive walk-in closet. Just down the hall, there’s two more large bedrooms. The fourth bedroom is a great versatile space, and would make either a great office or and additional guest suite. Read the rest of this entry »

2014/10/09 James Marsden: It Was an “Honor” to Take on Paul Walker’s Role in The Best of Me

James Marsden was honored to take over the late Paul Walker’s role in The Best of Me, the handsome actor told Us Weekly in an interview on Monday, Oct. 6.

“All I can say about that is he is just one of those tremendous actors that was even that much more special of a human being,” Marsden told Us when asked about Walker. “There was a wonderful energy about him and he was a terrific actor. You always want to be good stepping into a role like this but [it] felt a little bit more of an honor to play this role because of him,” the X-Men actor shared.

Walker, who died in a car accident in November 2013, was originally cast to play Dawson in Nicholas Sparks’ upcoming romance flick. A month after Walker’s tragic death, the role was offered to Marsden. Read the rest of this entry »

2014/10/09 Watch James Marsden Sing Garth Brooks With Lady Antebellum

We knew he was from Oklahoma, but we had no idea James Marsden could sing country like this.

When the actor and his Best of Me co-stars stopped by On Air With Ryan Seacrest on Wednesday (Oct. 8), they were joined by Lady Antebellum, who have a song on the soundtrack for the Nicholas Sparks adaptation. When Seacrest suggested that Marsden join Lady A for a song, he was initially reluctant — but once the first lines of Garth Brooks’ “Friends in Low Places” came out of his mouth, it was clear he was up for the challenge.

“Now I’m just pissed, because he’s better than me,” Lady Antebellum singer/guitarist Charles Kelley joked.

Watch Marsden’s performance for yourself below:

2014/10/05 James Marsden On Who Could Replace Him As Cyclops

James Marsden, the actor who played mutant hero Cyclops in the original ‘X-Men’ trilogy, has backed his ‘The Best of Me’ co-star Luke Bracey to replace him in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’.

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ writer Simon Kinberg exclusively revealed to Yahoo Movies last week that Cyclops, Storm, and Jean Grey would probably have to be recast for the next X-Men film, due to its 1980s setting, and Marsden thinks Bracey – who plays a younger version of himself in ‘The Best of Me’ – could be just the man to fill his distinctive visor.

“Yeah, that’d be great [if Luke Bracey took over as Cyclops],” he explains in our exclusive video below, “Then he could just eventually take over being me. Then I would never get another role as long as I live!” Read the rest of this entry »
