We have a quick Friday update for everyone. In a recent interview with Indiewire for his new film "Dead Man's Burden," actor Barlow Jacobs was asked about his involvement in "The Master" and gave the following tight-lipped details...
Now I have to ask about your part in "The Master." I'm sure you're not privy to tell me a lot. But what can you tell me about your role in the film?Are we excited yet? 105 more days to go...
It was amazing. Becoming an actor in your head you make this list of directors you want to work with. Somebody like Paul Thomas Anderson is at the top of my list. It was a huge honor to get to work with him. When you step onto one of his sets, you know that you're going to be working with the best at every level of production. I think it's going to be a super, super powerful film.
So who do you play?
I'm trying to be very careful about what I'm allowed to say. I play a young powerful lawyer in the film...in Philadelphia. That's all about all I feel comfortable saying.
Is it a movie about Scientology?
I can't say! I will say that obviously with this cast -- I feel like everybody just gave phenomenal performances. I cannot wait for it to come out in October and see how people respond to it. It's epic.
Now you've never worked on anything so tight lipped. What is it like to be a part of something like this, that has this level of secrecy surrounding it?
For me it's just more about being respectful of the people who made it. For me it's just exciting being a part of something that's just so big. It's the biggest thing I've ever been a part of. Laura Dern -- getting to work with her; I've admired her forever. I remember my first day on set where I was having dialogue and there's Philip Seymor Hoffman, Amy Adams, Laura Dern and Joaquin Phoenix -- you go into it and you just sit there going, "What is happening?!"
In case you missed it The Weinstein Company set up a Facebook page for "The Master" though nothing is up yet, you may still want to 'Like' it for future reference.
