,news Comments Off on Once a Cowboy…OSU Alumnus James Marsden stars in the new season of ‘Westworld’ on HBO
James Marsden has had steady success since he left Oklahoma State University in the early 1990s to pursue an acting career. His work in projects ranging from musicals to action films to comedies has given him career longevity and kept him from being typecast in spite of his blue eyes and leading man looks. He recently talked with the Stillwater News Press about how he got his start in the business and his newest project.
Q: The story we hear is that you and your family were on vacation and you met Kirk Cameron and his sister Candace and that they encouraged you to come out and visit in L.A. and that was part of what got you out there. Is that correct?
Marsden: That’s exactly right. It was a sort of convergence of me discovering theater and what it feels like to be on stage at 15-16 years old, middle school, high school, and feeling pretty good at it, at least enjoying it and at the same time I was on vacation in Hawaii and I stayed at the same hotel as the Cameron family…We exchanged numbers, kept in touch and they invited me out to come stay with them and watch a taping of “Full House” and “Growing Pains” and I thought, “Wow, what a cool lifestyle this would be.” I already had the bug for performing and then on top of it that was my dream to be in TV and film. So I kept in touch with them and they encouraged me to come out and give it a shot…Otherwise I would have stayed in Stillwater and probably gotten my degree.

,news Comments Off on Which robot traits would ‘Westworld’ stars most want IRL?
Westworld hosts truly have the most.
The android denizens of the futuristic Wild West theme park have mental and physical skills superior to those of mere mortals, but they’re also subject to the whims — ranging from rudeness to murder — of the human guests who visit.
Actors in HBO’s sci-fi hit, returning for a second season April 22 (9 ET/PT), might wish they could use superior artificial intelligence when trying to keep up with the changeable personalities of their lifelike android characters, not to mention the varying timelines.
“I think we were all, after a while, just surrendering to the fact that we didn’t exactly know what was going on at all times,” says Evan Rachel Wood, who toggles between two host personalities, sweet Dolores and vengeful Wyatt.
,news Comments Off on The milestones, aspirations and views of James Marsden
James Marsden is pretty hard to miss.
Some may remember him as Scott Summers/Cyclops from the “X-Men” movies, while others love him for portraying Corny Collins—and showcasing his singing talent—in “Hairspray,” and Prince Edward in “Enchanted.” This actor, who played the lead in the 1998 science fiction horror film “Disturbing Behavior,” is the same guy who now plays Teddy Flood in the HBO Series “Westworld.”
In an interview with Super, the 44-year-old actor enthusiastically talked about some of the greatest milestones in his career.
Crayen news Comments Off on James Marsden Loves Scotch
MANILA, Philippines — Hollywood actor James Marsden arrived in Manila to sit down with us, as he took a step back from his Hollywood responsibilities to discuss his poison of choice (although, as Westworld fans, we were definitely tempted to ask). “I find that when I’m looking at a drink menu and I’m confused about what to have, I can always default to scotch,” he says. (For those who may want to send him a drink at the bar, Marsden’s preferred way of enjoying scotch is with just a little bit of room-temperature water. You’re welcome.)
A true scotch enthusiast, Marsden doesn’t find that he has a single favorite; rather, each occasion calls for a different scotch. “It depends on my mood. I tend to jump back and forth between my mood and my atmosphere. If it’s dark and fire-lit, I would go with a Lagavulin. If it’s a sunny day, I’d go for a Singleton. And if I felt like throwing in some mixers, I’d definitely go with Johnnie Walker. They all have different characteristics and flavor profiles, so it’s a bit like picking your favorite color.”
He says that while he doesn’t have a distinctive first memory of his experience with scotch, he remembers exactly when it was an important drink to have. “I booked the role of Cyclops and celebrated with my manager at the time with a very nice glass of scotch. I don’t remember what it was, but I do know that it was not that affordable,” Marsden says with a small smile.

,video Comments Off on ‘Westworld’ Stars Evan Rachel Wood & James Marsden Kick Off ‘Carpool Karaoke’ Season Two At SXSW
The Westworld fun won’t stop taking over SXSW. First, there was that immersive experience, then there was the reveal of Shogun World at the panel, and now, series stars Evan Rachel Wood and James Marsden are kicking off the filming for the second season of Carpool Karaoke.
The official Twitter account of the popular Apple Music program sent out a video featuring the actors from the HBO drama getting ready to film a driving-and-singing segment around Austin. The two can be seen attempting to keep cool in the warm Texas weather while doing their “red leather, yellow leather” vocal warm-ups in preparation for their stellar in-car performance.
This isn’t the first time Carpool Karaoke has visited SXSW. Last year’s Austin-based confab had Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner driving around the city with an appropriate Game of Thrones-inspired karaoke segment, which immediately became one of their popular episodes.
