It’s not often that Hollywood actors come to Mumbai to promote their films. Given the fact the market share of American movies backed by Hollywood studios is only 10 per cent in India, it’s indeed a rarity to spot film stars from the West. Unless they are on a secret vacation and avoiding shutterbugs at all cost! These are the some of the reasons why we were intrigued to learn that James Marsden (of the X:Men fame) and Michelle Monaghan (feted for her strong part in True Detective) were in town for the promotions of their latest film based on Nicholas Sparks’ romantic novel: The Best of Me. Making the most of the event, hitlist sat down with the two and had a freewheeling chat.
Q. The late Paul Walker was the first choice for the role you play in the film. What was your reaction when you were offered the part?
A. James Marsden (JM): I don’t remember my first reaction. It was really tragic to learn about his demise and I can’t say enough about how good he was not only as an actor but also as a person. When they finalised me, all my thoughts were directed towards making sure I do justice to the role.
Q. Michelle, what exactly do you look for when you’re offered a script?
A. Michelle Monaghan (MM): I look for material that I haven’t come across before. As an actor, you don’t want to repeat yourself. If you do that, they’ll stereotype you and you don’t want that to happen. I took up The Best of Me because I always like Nicholas Sparks’ writing. Besides, I was getting an opportunity to work with a director such as Michael Hoffman. Read the rest of this entry »

We love when stars play along.
Hollywood hunk James Marsden appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen alongside Minnie Driver last night, and while answering caller questions during the after show, the blue-eyed cutie ended up being put on the spot with a little game many of us are familiar with…but with a twist.
One fan asked the Best of Me star, “James, if you were gay, who would you shag? Who would you kill? Who would you marry?” and gave Marsden his three choices: Andy Cohen, Anderson Cooper and Neil Patrick Harris (yeah, that wasn’t awkward for Andy at all). Read the rest of this entry »
James Marsden dropped by the Today show to talk about his new tearjerker The Best Of Me.
The hunky 41-year-old actor also brought a picture from his high school yearbook that caused a wave of excitement too.
To James’ half-hearted dismay, the photo of his younger self appeared on screen, grinning ever so confidently and sporting the haircut so cherished back in the ’80s and so maligned now – the mullet. Read the rest of this entry »

Speaking to Yahoo Celebrity at the launch of his new film ‘The Best of Me’, the Oklahoma native dished out some advice to new parents, Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes. Read the rest of this entry »
