EASTWOOD, CLINT: BLOOD WORK EASTWOOD, CLINT: BLOOD WORK
In his latest film, Blood Work, playing an old man with a heart transplant is just an opportunity to play another character he couldn’t play before, Clint Eastwood tells Jenny Cooney Carrillo. Besides, he has no choice.
EASTWOOD, CLINT: SPACE COWBOYS EASTWOOD, CLINT: SPACE COWBOYS
CLINT EASTWOOD walked right in where other directors feared to tread and took his talent into space; no big deal, the laid back old cowboy tells Jenny Cooney Carillo.
EASTWOOD, CLINT: True Crime EASTWOOD, CLINT: True Crime
True Crime is Clint Eastwood’s 21st film as a director. It’s also his 41st starring role. So what was it that appealed to him about it, asks NICK RODDICK.
ECKHART, AARON: In the Company of Men ECKHART, AARON: In the Company of Men
People think he’s a prick – and then tell them about their life; Aaron Eckhart’s role as Chad (pictured right) in In the Company of Men has elicited visceral reactions, he tells ANDREW L. URBAN.
ECKHART, AARON: THE CORE ECKHART, AARON: THE CORE
From a working partnership with celebrated indie auter Neil LaBute to helping Julia Roberts win an Oscar for Erin Brockovich, Aaron Eckhart's career has been quietly simmering away. Now the Californian's career is bubbling to the boil with The Core, his first big Hollywood blockbuster. He tells Shannon J. Harvey the secret to his success.
  EDER, KLAUS
International film critic Klaus Eder sat on the Brisbane FIPRESCI jury and loved what he saw. On his way home, he stopped briefly in Sydney and talked about the big picture of film criticism, with Andrew L. Urban, and admitted that rating films with stars caused him pain.
EFTHYMIOU, STAVROS : TRUE LOVE AND CHAOS EFTHYMIOU, STAVROS : TRUE LOVE AND CHAOS

Andrew L. Urban goes on location in Melbourne to interview Stavros Efthymiou about the making of True Love and Chaos, an unusual road movie that blends humour and tragedy.

  EJIOFOR, CHIWETEL & EDGERTON, JOEL – KINKY BOOTS
London born Nigerian actor Chiwetel Ojiofor and Australia’s Joel Edgerton co-star in Kinky Boots, an English comedy that clearly has legs – or at least feet. But they had to overcome physical and professional challenges to deliver their roles, as they tell Andrew L. Urban. Like waxing off the eyebrows ...
  ELLIOT, GEORGE: THE CROP
They said he was a dingbat, he didn’t have the brains to be a bricklayer, now he’s written a movie, The Crop, stars as its lead, and raised over $5 million to do it. George Elliot is the sort of dingbat whose smarts are hidden under a naïve front, as Andrew L. Urban discovered. He’s also charming and very determined.
  ELLIOTT, STEPH & SHERIDAN JOBBINS – EASY VIRTUE
When Australian director Steph Elliott was asked to direct an adaptation of Noel Coward’s play, Easy Virtue, he said categorically no. Not his bag, really, is it, after all. But then he was given the green light to make it in his own image, as it were, and in tandem with co-writer Sheridan Jobbins, he went to work. It was both hellish and wonderful, he tells Andrew L. Urban in this [uncensored] interview over pots of tea in the slightly fading glory of an enormous old English-style suite (complete with grand piano for Noel Coward effect) at Sydney’s Sir Stamford Hotel.
ELLIOTT, STEPH :WELCOME TO WOOP WOOP ELLIOTT, STEPH :WELCOME TO WOOP WOOP
Steph Elliott’s latest film, Welcome to Woop Woop, is an ode to an Australia he believes is vanishing, one which was rustic, raw and rough-tongued – but very real. After a lengthy post production period and re-editing, the film is ready for release (Aug. 13, 1998); on the eve of his promotional tour in Australia, Elliott talked to ANDREW L. URBAN.
  ELLIOTT, STEPH – A FEW BEST MEN
People the world over need a laugh, and Steph Elliott is giving them several with A Few Best Men, a farce that does for weddings what The Hangover does for bucks’ nights. Elliott stole Andrew L. Urban’s chips while they discussed the making of the film.
  ELLIOTT, STEPH – EYE OF THE BEHOLDER, DVD
Eye of the Beholder ruined him financially, and then he nearly died in a skiing accident; now, with the film out on DVD in Australia, Steph Elliott is back in business, beholden to no-one and back on the slopes, as he reveals details of a new chapter in his life to Andrew L. Urban.
  ESTEVEZ, EMILIO - BOBBY
The day Bobby Kennedy died is the setting for a new movie by Emilio Estevez, who had been touched by the young politician – literally as well as metaphorically, he tells Philippa Wherrett, at the film’s world premiere in Venice.
EVERETT-SCOTT, TOM : An American Werewolf in Paris EVERETT-SCOTT, TOM : An American Werewolf in Paris
It took four hours each day to do the icy cold, sticky make up that transformed Tom Everett Scott from a clean cut American to a messed up werewolf victim – but, he tells ANDREW L. URBAN there were compensations, like seeing Europe, working with Julie Delpy and jumping off the Eiffel Tower.
