Must have been from the same screenplay camp that came up with the movie where Keaton plays a washed up actor who had his high point a generation ago playing a comic book hero.

My wife was all like, "if Hugh Grant is out cheating on Elizabeth Hurley with lower-tier prostitutes, why the fark do I even bother doing yoga and shiat?"

I'm all "babe, you ain't skipping the garlic knots to look good for your man, it's to look good for all the other ladies at work". And Hugh stepping out with that Hollywood streetwalker is no reflection whatsoever on Liz Hurley's attractiveness. Proclivities and demons etc being the powerful forces that they are

After she agrees that I'm correct (a rare admission) we both agree that Elizabeth Hurley was/(is?) farking gorgeous. I know its de rigeur around these parts to bash British attractiveness, but imo the Isles are cranking out some stunningly beautiful actresses.

I wonder if his character will be charmingly befuddled?

I think I saw him present a documentary on ancient engineering about 10 years ago, I'm pretty sure he had some high level qualification in either history or archaeology.

You know what was fun? The movie about a screenwriter struggling to adapt a novel about a flower for film and eventually turning it into a screenplay about a screenwriter struggling to adapt the novel into a screenplay. It started with the writer's attempt at adapting the novel in the movie into a screenplay. I mean the screenplay started that way, not the movie. Although the movie did, too, obviously.

Weller had a guest role on Sons of Anarchy a season or two ago and directed a few of the episodes.

Sounds like it's worthy of Adaptation.

His PhD is in Italian History, and apparently he'll be in the next Star Trek movie.

A while back, he was on a local news program in Loss Angeles, and all I remember is one of the anchors asking where he finds the time to do everything he does. The guy keeps himself busy outside his acting career.

Jean Claude Van Damme does this, no one cur.

Michael Keaton does it, GENIUS!

Hugh Grant does it, no one cur.

that is a risk I would gladly take

Best movie about a washed-up actor EAVR.

Is that why Bill Murray has been so inactive recently?

I don't think Hugh Grant actually gives a fark whether he's an "actor" or not. So by that measure, he's doing fine.

Dude was in a few of the final episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise along with showing up as the secondary baddy "Admiral Robocop Marcus" in Star Trek Into Darkness. Hardly disappearing...

Granted acting is more of a secondary gig to him after his academic work, PhD and teaching etc.

When in doubt, go with the formula, eh?  The tried-and-true "number three at the box office for a week" film.
I was hoping maybe for something with a little more depth; maybe a remake of "In a Lonely Place", the underrated Bogart/Gloria Grahame pic.  It'd give Grant a chance to stretch beyond his same character he plays in every movie.

He had a large role in the last Star Trek movie. I doubt we'll see him in the next Star Trek movie because Benedict Cumberbatch crushed Weller's character's skull in with his bare hands.
