Thanks to Tony for the tip.
These new photos --which I haven't seen elsewhere online yet though who knows. The web is so vast and fast moving -- taken on the set of Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock were published in a Taiwanese paper. It's difficult to believe (at least for my eyes) but supposedly that's the film's lead actor, comedian Demetri Martin in a cross-dressing scene. Demetri has had quite a ride lately. Popular gigs on The Daily Show will do wonders for the career, no?
Demetri has the lead role as "Eliot Tiber" (the man who wrote the memoirs the film is based on) but his co-stars are pretty rich in filmography. There's Emile Hirsch (recently photographed on the set), Liev Schreiber, Eugene Levy, Paul Dano and even Oscar nominee Imelda Staunton who is playing Demetri's mother.
But how about that Ang Lee? From man on man romance in 1960's Wyoming, to 1940s espionage in China, to the emotionally deadened suburbs in 1970s Connecticutt, to Regency Era romance, to Missouri during the Civil War to, well, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. Is there any genre, time frame or milieu that he can't tackle? (If you're shouting out "superheroes" let it go.!) Taking Woodstock will be arriving in 2009 from Focus Features, to capitalize on the 40th anniversary of the legendary rock concert.
