Re: Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake VI
So Philip Seymour Hoffman says JGL is one of his favs these days, and he thought what JGL did in TDKR was the most difficult thing in the movie. And that he pulled it off. He had to show integrity and it's not something you can just fake, etc.
I only heard it out of Peter Travers' mouth when he was interviewing JGL. But that's pretty cool coming from PSH. JGL looked blown away.
That's for all you haters out there who cant stand JGL's "Robin John Blake" character in the movie. If Hoffman respected what he did in the movie, it doesnt mean we all have to...but i think it means something when a top of the line actor like him praises not only Joseph Gordon-Levitt but the Blake character as well.
That other thread...the "Is Blake a problem or not?" thread is getting goddamn ridiculous, so ill just stay in here.
"Lets make one thing very clear here - Nolan's films are as faithful an adaptation as there is. It pays homage to its source material, remains true to its characters and above all else places the story first and foremost." - jmc
