    I feel like Adam isn't getting enough love in the comments. Hearing the way that other actors have talked about him helping them stand up for themselves (Terry Crews for instance) and how he's just a normal dad/guy outside of acting is just amazing. He genuinely cares so much about people

      The host totally skipped on him with one of the questions and didn't get enough time to talk.

      I feel like it's not too big of a deal? Because he's been on a roundtable before, think of it as a legend returning with different stars 🤷🏾‍♂️. It kind of does suck but it's great we got to hear from the other guys especially Brendan, Austin and Ke.

      There was probably stuff left out of the edit, that maybe he was asked. He also seemed to be very quiet anyway, maybe to give others more room to speak, or maybe he was more comfortable listening.

    Colin seems such a self-aware dude. As he ages, I like him more and more as an actor. Such a caring group - watching these guys intently listening to each other and really trying to understand all points of view, is amazing....

    • Cameron Bierman
      Cameron Bierman 2 months ago +3

      I would say the opposite! He seems to be the only one from the six who lacks self awareness. Just talks a lot of Hollywood nonsense like with each sentence he’s trying to say something so profound and clever.

    • Theriatjohnsson
      Theriatjohnsson 2 months ago +8

      @Cameron Biermani think he just doesn’t care about retaliation and says everything that comes to mind, I feel like everyone else is just holding back

    I cried hearing how Brendan and Ke reconnect and support each other. Not to mention the amount of gravity and respect Brendan brings to light for the themes of the Whale and the COVID environment it was made. You can tell how into the conversation Colin is, how he even feels comfortable enough to lean onto the table and put his head down. Austin and Jeremy talk so much about respecting the truth of each of their real-life characters to justice. I am amazed at how much care they are giving each other. Amazing group of men.

    Ke Huy Quan went from being a refugee as a child, to becoming an Oscar winning actor. He is really very inspiring, and he’s a role model for people who come from impoverished backgrounds. The sky’s the limit, you can do anything if you reach out and take it.

    • Wahid Al-faqun

    When Jeremy shared what his therapist said, I had the same reaction everyone in that room did…nothing but value. The drive to push everyone away that Austin spoke about as he dealt with grief and depression…thats whats ive been doing for years. It was important to hear that the difference is he always did one more even when he was full of doubt.

      That's kind of the theme of the whole discussion; always assume there's a reason why you should get out of the house, do the thing that scares you. It was a matter of hope against hope in several of their stories.

    Coming to this group interview after the Oscars is so cool to watch. Brendan and Ke are such genuine guys. Colin also felt extremely warm towards these guys. Great stuff.

    Treeboy Productions 4 months ago +10661

    Colin Farrell and Brendan Fraser are engulfed in this conversation. You can tell when someone is truly listening just by their body language. Brendan is about to cry at points in other people's stories and Colin almost looks childish in his wonder. What cool people.

    These roundtable discussions are phenomenal. In a world where everything seems empty and hopeless, they give people hope. Just seeing these guys down to earth and expressing their true feelings with the struggles they've been through is such an inspiration.

  • LTD Quilting

    I loved Austin Butler saying after starting to break out of his shell, "I'm not self-conscious, but others-concious"...what a profound truth!

  • TinyStag
    TinyStag 3 months ago +188

    Hearing Austin talk about Lisa Marie just days before she passed made the story of Elvis and his family so much more real. I'm glad they were able to do the project before she left.

  • Emilyn Alexandra Bolivar Limo

    I think the beauty of this roundtable is how all the actors left their egos behind and opened up to being vulnerable. Talking about their insecurities. And I think this was in part thanks to ke huy quan, who from the beginning set the tone for how the dynamic of the conversation was going to be. His humble and very down to earth way of telling about his life experience, made the atmosphere relaxed and made everyone feel in a safe space to talk not only about the success or situations inside the sets, but also about the fears and moments that influenced their life. Also the interviewer takes part of the reward for this incredible interview, because he was able to navigate topics that can be uncomfortable and delicate for people in a very open but yet respectful way. Bravo!

  • Lorena D
    Lorena D 2 months ago +97

    This Roundtable made me cry in minutes. Ke is awesome, as are Brandon & the others. Adam was class act taking the back seat & letting others be in the spotline to enjoy the moment they've been waiting for so long.

  • Galactic123
    Galactic123 4 months ago +8186

    What really bothered me hearing Ke's story is that if his work on Everything Everywhere All at Once is any indication, we as a film loving public were robbed of 20 years of potentially incredible performances.

    This felt like a therapy session in the best of ways, thank you to everyone involved with this production from the camera people, the staff, the amazing interviewer who let them all talked and asked such great questions and the actors who were vulnerable with each other and with us.
    I was in charge of the marketing campaign for Elvis in the movie theater that I worked as when that movie was coming out and got to see a lot of behind the scene stuff, Austin was always so humble and you can tell he really respected everyone. I saw that movie like 5 times when it came out, each time had me sobbing and made me a massive fan of Elvis and Austin. People were still going in December to watch that movie or rewatch it.
    I'll be watching the other movies!

      I’ve said it before I’ll say it again, Brandon Frasier is too pure for this world, and he must be protected at all costs. It’s a rare gift from the Gods to get a human on this planet that doesn’t hold grudges when he has every right too always looks out for the people around him and only ever exudes humbleness and genuine kindness for others

    I was so grateful that each of the actors had plenty of time to tell their stories without being cut off like in most interviews. It had a very calm feeling about it that allowed each actor to think and respond with their deeper insights. Also they didn’t interrupt or talk over each other - they were very respectful of each other. I was very impressed with each of them - not focusing on ego - but trying to share their own journey.

    Brenden, Ke and Collin are such delights to watch on screen and off screen. Loved the genuine conversation taking place. It's so sad we were deprived of their so many potential phenomenal performances just because opportunities in Hollywood were different back then (still is but lesser now). Loved to hear all these stories. The only roundtable I found was so warm and supportive after the one of Andrew Garfield, Dev Patel and Jeff Bridges. I hope to see more of all these actors in upcoming projects.

    Ke's got such a unique past with most of us. Even if we never heard of him, it's a moving story of him getting this role and accomplishing what he did in this movie. But most of us also grew up watching him in such iconic roles that he's a part of our past. It makes it that much better seeing his success.

    Ke's advice at the end: when you have a dream and you doubt if you can ever accomplish it and when you can achieve your dream, he tells us to be patient. Your time will come. Look at Ke, though it took him 25 years to get where he is, he got his time now that he deserves. So helpful! Thank you, Ke.

It's a much more interesting story to open up roles. Now I want to see many more roles open up for older female actresses. Men are lucky that they can be 50s and up and still get offered a variety of roles. Women in 40s, 50s, 60s, and up get stuck with mother or grandmother roles as of they aren't doing other things. I see it's better...with JLO, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Anniston, getting better roles, but let's see more. And more women of color that are older as well. Please expand the characters to reflect more of society.

    I love how GENUINELY seriously Colin is taking as everyone speaks, its almost like he is drinking it in like a man dying of thirst in a desert, he is engrossed in every person who is speaking and for some reason it caught me off guard and kinda made me like him more than I already did.
    Every man there is a treasure to the medium and there was a great deal of important and useful information being shared here.

      i remember when Fright Night came out, you could see it in his eyes in interviews. Dude knew he was getting a chance to come back and he was NOT going to act like he didn't care or that he was owed. He was ready to work cuz he appreciated the work and had seen what it was like to have it taken away.

  • Brian Thornton
    Brian Thornton 2 months ago

    I needed this. As a young actor, my sons were 2 and 4 when my wife died. Even though my dying wife made me promise I would pursue my acting 100%, my "why" was being a father. A 2nd marriage(nulled) and a 3rd son and my "why" remains Father... I have turned down more opportunities than I accepted because I felt would infringe upon my son's time with me; with their father. I am grateful for my roles I HAVE been able to play but I fear I am irrelevant. I keep going. And I have for 30 years. At 56, I can tell you that I have a deeper healthier relationship with myself which enriches the roles I get to audition and play. These guys were phenomenal mentors for me. So I loved and needed to receive, today.

    Every time I hear Brendan talk.... It is so fragile, like he is holding back a lot of emotions. And I have seen it in other clips where he does let his emotions go. I have the feeling that the duality of him returning to Hollywood and the appreciation he is receiving versus the experiences that made turn his back is so emotionally draining that he needs to constantly hold himself in check....
