Its a hard thing to do to say, Hey, I have a vision. I know what I want to see out of this scene and with this story, but yet be open enough to his actors and the people he hires to trust, to listen to their opinion and to be open to changing what he has in mind.Thats a difficult thing, but thats the only way that something can be elevated.Blucas, who is best known for his role as Riley on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and as Matthew on USA’s “Necessary Roughness,” recently starred in Kevin Smith‘s “Red State” and will also appear in an episode of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” this season.He is represented by Paradigm and Anonymous Content.I think that any actor who has the opportunity to work with another actor who has decided to get behind the camera, its usually a pretty great experience for that person.Ive been such a fan of Forest as an actor for a long time, just as I have Michael Keaton.
Director: Gideon Raff Innocent lives hang on the whim of an elusive psychopathic murderer whose strange riddles and impossible timelines force three people into a mission to end the game before one or all of them die.And its the actors job to come to the table with a take on the role and the scene and the story.Thats what were supposed to do, as a filmmaker, thats what a director is supposed to do.Marcus Paul "Marc" Blucas (born January 11, 1972) is an American actor, known for playing Riley Finn in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Matthew Donnelly on Necessary Roughness. His father is of half Polish and half Czech descent. His mother is of half English and Scottish, and half Croatian, ancestry. Blucas (the son of Peter Martin Blucas and Katherine Caroline Kendelski) and Alice Phillips (the daughter of Charles Phillips and Barbara Suhar). It seems that no matter how many years have passed since he co-starred on the cult series, the subject of Buffy invariably comes up, no matter what project hes actually promoting. I think it was when she was with Chris (Klein) at something. But I could say that about my own show (Buffy) at that time, too. Were at all aware of the other First Daughter movie being made around the same time?In this interview, Blucas talks about working with Katie Holmes and Forest Whitaker on First Daughter, and, of course, the continued support of Buffy fanatics. Ill be in in a little bit. And he kind of stopped and looked at me for a beat or two too long, and Im like, I was just judged right there. And he went in. And obviously, I think it was at the point where they had narrowed it to seven or eight guys at that point. Yeah, which kind of shows her commitment and her professionalism. (Teasing) I have no idea what youre talking about. All along, as an actor trying to find work in town, I knew about both of them.INTERVIEW WITH MARC BLUCAS (James): Whats the story behind being cast in this film? Probably three or four months after we wrapped, the casting director said he just walked into the room and said, I just met my guy right in the parking lot. So, yeah, he could have saved me a lot of anguish, some stress going in there. I think he wanted to see people with Katie [Holmes] because chemistry really isnt something you can just wish to happen. That was something she probably didnt have to be at, at that point. We just found a very easy way of being with one another. I knew, I guess rightfully so, it was a race to see who comes first. Theres a concept out there and suddenly all of a sudden theres three of the same things out there.What happened was, all of this I learned after the fact of course, he could have saved me a lot of stress and agony by not putting me through the audition process. I was going to the meeting and Forest (Whitaker) was going to the meeting as well, and I parked my truck and he was about 20 feet away. She wanted every guy in there to have a fair shake, and it was very easy. And I think that, we forget that when Big came out there were two other movies very similar to that that we really dont remember, and it was kind of a race to see which one came out first then. We dont weigh in on the decisions the studios make, but I would like to think that they saw some of their footage and said, Hey, were going to give the filmmaker as much time as he needs to finish out his vision, to make the movie he wants because we think we have something special and it doesnt matter when it comes out.Two teen TV veterans, Marc Blucas ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer") and Katie Holmes ("Dawson's Creek"), star in the romantic comedy First Daughter, directed by Forest Whitaker.Holmes plays the college-aged daughter of the President of the United States who wants nothing more than to lead a normal life on campus, away from the happenings in the White House.
