Actors around the world are in a complicated cat-and-mouse game, competing for the best roles in the industry. This, of course, has led countless actors to lose iconic roles, like when Nicolas Cage almost played Superman, OJ Simpson almost starred in The Terminator or when Will Smith almost played the role of Neo in The matrix. For many, these near misses are difficult to overcome.

Star of The French dispatch from director Wes Anderson, Adrien Brody opened up about how he got into a role in The Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson’s iconic fantasy trilogy. Like Brody said GQ, “I remember going to see Lord of the Rings at the theater with an ex-girlfriend. And she turned to me and said, ‘You passed away the Lord of the Rings?! ‘ Adding that he was simply “looking for something else”.

Continuing, the actor notes, “I remember feeling so stupid. But I don’t think I would have had the role of Jack in Peter’s. [King Kong]. I don’t think it would have translated ”. While appearing on HBO’s most recent series Succession, Brody has a number of upcoming projects on the horizon, including in Wes Anderson’s upcoming film. City of asteroids.

Speaking at the BFI London Film Festival screening of The French dispatch, Murray indicated that Anderson’s latest film would feature “the usual cast of characters.”

Continuing, he added: “We are filming in Spain, about 45 minutes from Madrid. It’s fun there, we have a great time. This is what we do in show business – we just say the name and people will clap. It doesn’t make any sense… I came from Spain. I want to get my money’s worth ”.

Starting production in Spain in August, Anderson’s latest project will signify his tenth collaboration with actor Bill Murray, having recently starred alongside Tilda Swinton in The French dispatch. Swinton, who is also set to appear in Anderson’s new film, revealed that despite filming in Spain, “It’s not about Spain.” Meanwhile, director Wes Anderson has said he’s “not ready to share any details” regarding the new film.
