Emile Hirsch Ate Pig Crap for Ang Lee


Emile Hirsch talks to Parade about his experience playing a Vietnam vet in Taking Woodstock and the scene in which he and other festival-goers take a wild ride on a mud slick:

"I haven't really had my hair cut since I did Milk. It was fine for Woodstock, but I still can't get a trim because my girlfriend likes it long. I cry myself to sleep every night dreaming of buzz cuts. No, I'm kidding, I like long hair. I'm trying to bring long hair back. When I was actually doing the sliding scenes it was a lot of fun. It was kind of an animalistic pleasure, like a dog rolling around in the dirt. But it wasn't real mud -- it was movie mud. And I was like, 'What is this stuff made of?' because some of it ended up in my mouth. And they said, 'It comes from pig crap. We clean it up and put some vegetable oil in it.'"

Emile Hirsch Flashes Some Skin on the Road to Woodstock


A still from Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock, which premiered last night and features an extended acid trip, according to Movieline: "Not that anyone flies or bounds about the nearby foliage, but it’s a stunner nonetheless, overlapping pastel lighting effects, green-screen animation, shifting film speeds, lens trickery and undulating CGI in its glimpse at what’s casually referred to as 'the center of the universe.'"

New Trailer for Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock


A trailer has arrived for Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock, the adaptation of the memoir Taking Woodstock: A True Story of a Riot, a Concert, and a Life by Elliot Tiber, with Tom Monte.

Ang3 Taking Woodstock tells the story of Tiber, the gay man who helped facilitate Woodstock, providing the permit that made the Festival possible, as well as the eventual location on his milkman Max Yasgur's farm.

The film stars Demetri Martin as Tiber, Imelda Staunton and Henry Goodman  play Tiber's parents, Jonathan Groff plays Woodstock organizer Michael Lang; Emile Hirsch plays a recently returned Vietnam vet, Eugene Levy plays Yasgur, and Liev Schreiber plays a transvestite named Vilma. Jeffrey Dean Morgan plays a closeted married man having an affair with Tiber, and Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan play a hippie couple attending the concert.

Emile Hirsch talked about the mudslide scene (below) last year, to EW: "The mud's pretty cold. It's later in the year than it was during Woodstock. We were all shivering, and we had these silver-foil space blankets that miraculously keep you really warm...I did a Superman slide down a hill, and started turning on my back. I was covered in mud. I think there was pig crap mixed in, because we all smelled like crap."

Check out the trailer AFTER THE JUMP, which Demitri Martin introduces in his trademark drawing style...
