This just in: EW.com says that was Dylan McDermott‘s voice on the phone, not Zachary Quinto, which I NEVER would have thought. Wait, WHAT? I could maybe pick McDermott’s voice out of a line up, and I’m usually great at recognizing celebrity voices in general, and especially in commercials (especially if it’s some sex-bomb alpha-male like Jon Hamm or Clooney, or someone’s voice I’ve deliberately… OK). I was feeling all proud of spotting Frances Conroy in the preview, too. I’ll try to reblog that piece shortly, but EW.com has NEVER let me reblog a piece before, and getting this to you may just be a glitch. I’m off to find a certain Grindhouse holiday-themed trailer for you now, but until then, enjoy this… and pray for Lana!
I know one thing I’m going to be thankful for the rest of my life: that five years ago, we got to see Grindhouse opening night, in the biggest single-screen theater in Seattle, with one of the coolest, most fun audiences I’ve had the pleasure be part of to watch a movie with my entire life.
When this Eli Roth-directed trailer for a film that doesn’t exist came on between Planet Terror and Deathproof, we all HOWLED through the entire thing (one of many highlights of the evening). I’d already seen the “trailer” on the Grindhouse website, so I knew the trampoline scene was coming, but it still got a loud, “HOAH!” out of me –and for once, the rest of the theater drowned me out (it’s a rare occasion that I wish would happen more often). Roth said he had plans to make the movie, but so far, only Robert Rodruiguez delivered on his promise to make his trailer, Machete, into a feature-length film. There really weren’t any leftovers …but this trailer will definitely bring on the stuffing.
