The Career of Emile Hirsch

How did he go from an almost Oscar nomination in Into the Wile to doing Lifetime miniseries crap like the remake of Bonnie and Clyde?

How is it Kristen Stewart became the biggest star from that movie?

Maybe Kristen gives better blowjobs?

He's too tiny to be a major star.

It is on A&E

He has quite a reputation for being difficult.

"Speed Racer" was a mega-bomb, although I don't see why anyone would blame him for its failure.

He isn't an Oscar nominee.

by Anonymousreply 709/25/2013

OP said ALMOST Oscar nominee

That is often the case R5 when someone is talented and you wonder why their career isn't working out better.

Lainey always alludes that he's an asshole.

What's an ALMOST nominee? Who cares? Every actor in a movie is an ALMOST nominee.

by Anonymousreply 1109/25/2013

Not true, R11. He had a lot of buzz for Into the Wild.

by Anonymousreply 1209/25/2013

Not OP but I think almost nominee is clear. Someone in the running who didn't make the final cut--based on buzz at the time.

by Anonymousreply 1309/25/2013

Lainey is an asshole.

by Anonymousreply 1409/25/2013

He looked super hot in "The Darkest Hour" but that movie was ridiculous and badly acted by all, including Hirsch.

by Anonymousreply 1509/25/2013

Yeah it's fine to blame it on Speed Racer -- Emile fired his agent right after it bombed--but his career output/looks/"talent" suggest ITW was an anomaly.

He's too short and slight of frame to be a leading man, and too pretty/boyish to be a character actor.

by Anonymousreply 1609/25/2013

He's like 5'4", a little feminine looking and it's not like he's an especially good actor. I'm not surprised his career never took off.

Who cares how tall he is and how bad his acting skills are!? The most important thing is that he has a nice uncut schlong (uncircumcised Americans are practically an endangered species) which he put on display in Taking Woodstock.

Hirsch should have been nominated for MILK in which he gave a great supporting performance. To this day I still don't understand why his name never even came up during that awards season, especially when there was talk James Franco would be nominated for doing virtually nothing in the film except looking pretty standing next to Sean Penn (just my opinion).

And speaking of Penn, if being an asshole can cost you a career in Hollywood, how does one explain his long-standing success? Hasn't his reputation always been that of a major asshole? Or is that not true?

by Anonymousreply 2209/25/2013

He's a hot version of Jack Black!

by Anonymousreply 2309/27/2013

R22, Penn isn't an asshole on set, he's an asshole to photographers who everyone hates anyway.

by Anonymousreply 2409/27/2013

I don't know about his other movies, but in "Wanted" he seemed to confuse acting with SHOUTING.

I thought American parents didn't circumcise the millenials anymore, compared to the way nearly every American baby boomer boy was cut.

by Anonymousreply 3009/29/2013

I think he's a decent actor and certainly picks interesting projects. He looks like DiCaprio and Jack Black's love child. I thought he was adorable in The Girl Next Door/

by Anonymousreply 3109/29/2013

Emile is Jewish, I doubt he's uncircumcised. as for his height, I've seen him in person a few times, and I'd put him at around 5'7".

by Anonymousreply 3209/29/2013

Yep. He seems 5'7 ish to me. Actually, most of the big male stars in Hollywood are well under 6 ft tall.

The Mudge Boy was a great, if disturbing, movie and Hirsch was good in it.

by Anonymousreply 3709/29/2013

He held his own against Matthew McConaughey and Thomas Haden Church in “Killer Joe”. No easy feat. You simultaneously felt for and despised his trashy character.

Is it possible that Peewee Hirsch has gone about as fur as he can go? Count his blessings?

I loved that movie R37, I feel like it doesn't get enough love.

by Anonymousreply 4009/29/2013

Another thumbs up for The Mudge Boy. I also liked him in The Girl Next Door, Into the Wild, and even Lords of Dogtown. The only movie I've seen him in that I didn't like was that drug pic w/Tina Timberlake.

Too short, too ugly, too difficult.

R25, that wasn't Emile, that was James MacAvoy.

by Anonymousreply 4309/29/2013

He reminds me a less consistent Tobey Maguire, capable of turning in some very good performances, but an actor who should stick to carefully selected roles at the more indie end of the spectrum.

In the right role, he might make a viewer look past his doughy, bland looks.

He stars with Paul Rudd in the drama "Prince Avalanche" which opens shortly. It might do his career (and Rudd's) some good.

Something called Twice Born

by Anonymousreply 5309/29/2013

I think he's building a career of mostly smaller, independent projects and will have a long career. His only foray into big blockbusters, Speed Racer, was a misfire and i think he'll continue to focus on smaller projects

by Anonymousreply 5409/29/2013

Thank you, R54. I've been trying to think of the first of his movies I didn't see, and it was Speed Racer. And I haven't seen anything since (kind of like Tammy and Interview with a Vampire).

Got some woman in Florida pregnant.

Into the Wild” star Emile Hirsch will soon be a daddy. The diminutive actor, 28, who won a Critics’ Choice Award for his role in the Sean Penn directed film, slept with a Florida woman and got her pregnant, multiple sources confirm to Confidenti@l.

“She is five-and-a-half months pregnant now, but they are not dating,” one source tells us. “His friends know about it, he is doing the right thing and will be taking care of her and his baby financially.”

The source adds that Hirsch is happy to take responsibility, even though he and his baby’s mother do not live together.

“He will definitely be in her life and wants to be a part of the baby’s life,” the source says. “He’s told all his friends about it and it’s fine. He plans to be in the kid’s life.”

It is not clear if Hirsch knows if he will be having a boy or a girl. Another insider explains to us that the Hirsch and the woman were at one time in a relationship and are now “trying to figure out what they’re going through.”

“They’re friends and they’re young and they’re figuring it out,” says the insider.

The actor, who lives in Venice, Calif., will be flying out to visit the woman shortly, we’re told, to check up on her and make plans for visitation rights with the baby, due in February. Since both parties are cooperating and friendly, lawyers have not gotten involved in negotiations.

Hirsch just wrapped the action flick “Lone Survivor,” which is based on the failed 2005 mission “Operation Red Wings” during which SEAL Team 10 attempted to kill Taliban leader Ahmad Shahd. This year he also filmed a “Bonnie and Clyde,” miniseries for Lifetime, in which he plays Clyde for two episodes, and wrapped “Prince Avalanche,” about road workers on a summer break in the ’80′s.

He reminds me of Stephen Dorff.

by Anonymousreply 5910/10/2013

Emile is a fine actor, and I can't imagine him being "disqualified" for asshole behavior. I mean. Joseph Gordon Levitt can be quite an asshole too. Seriously.

I sincerely hope it's not drugs or alcohol that sort of stalled him. Maybe the simple truth is that he didn't catch on. He never seemed to play the H'wood game, chasing publicity, being photo'd with different hot girls, etc.

He will be one of those work men like actors who does a lot of indie work, & some TV, and it'll be hit & miss, but he'll stick around and maybe lightning will strike with some project in the future.

I believe he's undervalued. He won't go away, but he will never be a big deal. I agree about MILK he was wonderful in MILK.

by Anonymousreply 6010/10/2013

I was an extra on Bonnie & Clyde a couple of months ago and spent most of the night next to him. We were filming a speakeasy scene that lasted from 1 pm to nearly 3 am the following morning. Nice enough guy, I guess. Didn't really interact with any of us but he didn't spend the whole night in his trailer, either. In person, he's tiny and more pretty than handsome but I thought his stand-in was much hotter by far. Not much else to report, I'm afraid.

AGAIN Hirsch choked out a woman! A film exec at that!

He's over and so are you.

by Anonymousreply 6802/13/2015

R68 I understood perfectly. I think you are the one who didn't get me. Executives can be a pain in the arse and they can screw you over royally and sometimes you can't but think of choking them. Some actors don't go that far others do.

by Anonymousreply 6902/13/2015

Did he even know the woman? I think I read he didn't like that she looked 'tough' and attacked her.

Very costly drunken mistake, Hirsch

He did more than think about it. He did it and more importantly (for his career) it made the news. Therefore his career is most likely dead. He's not a big enough star to overcome this.

by Anonymousreply 7202/13/2015

I truly don't think he attacked her out of the blue, there's back story there

Thanks R73 I mean Ray Rice I mean Drew Peterson for the update.

It's nice to know that a woman can say anything and be assaulted. Maybe they should've taken it to the nearest elevator!

by Anonymousreply 7602/13/2015

R74 see the thing is that I didn't see this matter as a sexual politics issue; I saw it as an actor (creative person) vs executive (the suits, lacking any semblance of a creative sensibility)issue.

It is a bit strange to believe that this can happen out of the blue and I would have thought the same had it been two men fighting or two women.

"Ppl are too quick to judge, many of these executives are everything but angels."

Of course, but that doesn't mean that it's legal to strangle them.

by Anonymousreply 7802/13/2015

R78 it's not legal but it sends out the message that being an agent-executive-asshole has its risks. I am sure they would in the future be a lot more careful in the way they treat the talent.

I figured Whoopi Goldberg would be out tonight, celebrating Rosie's exit from The View. But evidently, she's right here on DL!

by Anonymousreply 8002/13/2015

Don't be silly, R79. The suits will not respond to this by questioning or modifying their own behavior, what they will change is their hiring practices.

No suit who cares about this will hire an actor who is druggy, unstable, or prone to temper tantrums after this. No sense taking any chances, when there are so many actors.

by Anonymousreply 8102/13/2015

r79, it has its risks if you're a 90 lb woman. That's not a new message. I think people are being optimistic assuming this will end his career. Blatantly shitting on people who are weaker than you (for no good reason) seems to be SOP in the industry. Hirsch's transgression is one of degree, not kind. He'll get whatever Utah's version of suspended imposition of sentence is and go back to his already marginal career.

by Anonymousreply 8202/13/2015

that JAP bitch probably deserved to be taken down a peg! I say bravo to Hirsch -
