200px-augustposter.jpgI cannot wait to see August. In an interview with the New York Daily News, Bowie’s “August” co-star Andre Royo commented that Bowie took the time to learn his lines which made Royo and the rest of the cast “feel great because there’s someone iconic who’s taking it seriously. This is David Bowie. He could have said, ‘Listen, I don’t give a f-. I’m David Bowie. You didn’t cast me because I’m a thespian of the ages.'” (Incidentally, that makes me wonder if a lot of high-profile actors who do cameos don’t bother to learn their lines.) I know I’ve said before that I don’t think Bowie is the best actor, but he was amazing in “The Prestige” (and should have gotten an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor) so I hope he follows up that flawless performance with another.
