Our pal Brad Blanks, the master of the red carpet interview, attended the premiere for the new Coen Brothers movie True Grit. Along the way he nabbed great interviews with principle castmembers Jeff Bridges (who steps into John Wayne‘s big shoes to play an eyepatched Rooster Cogburn), Matt Damon (whose character is, in his own words, “a bit of a jackass”), and newcomer Hailee Steinfeld (she’s “the star of the show,” says Bridges, “she carries the ball all the way through”).
Before you watch the interview with our friend Brad, check out the trailer for the Coen brothers upcoming take on the classic western True Grit based on the book by Charles Portis.
Check out the interview with Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and the fresh faced Hailee Steinfeld. Our favorite part is Bridges response to what kind of cowboy he would be back in the good ol’ western days [hint: not a cowboy].
‘True Grit’ is released on December 22. What do you think of the trailer? Do you think we have another No Country For Old Men on our hands? Let us know what you think via the comments.
