Basically we fund ourselves and we are able to track the true movements and see a lot of the atrocities in real time. We will have images up in a few days, in the hope to try to slow down or make it prohibitive. We'll give them to the Hague and the images will be used against them. We've already given tons of actual atrocities, true movements, bombs being dropped on villages but they would claim it was tribal infighting when of course no tribe has these weapons.
12. He also thinks the UN should have its own army.
13. He explained how his roommate took his infamous cat litter box prank.
14. He talked about this interview.
15. He had some sort of lovely things to say on Gravity co-star Sandra Bullock.
I remember the Coen brothers assumed I could sing, I kind of assumed I could too. I went into the studio with T Bone Burnett and the Coen brothers and sang my version of Man of Constant Sorrow and they were all looking down at the ground and kind of shaking their heads and they play it back and it's just terrible, and I think great, they're going to have to tell me they're going to have to bring in another guy to sing. We were in Mississippi in the summer, even though it was all golden brown. It was the first time they really tried to digitally change the color of a film like that. It was really fun. The first day, I'm shooting a scene with John Goodman where he hits me in the head with a stick, and I was playing it like an idiot because these are the stupidest guys in America and Joel and Ethan walked over and said 'Listen, you're the smartest guy in the room in every single scene,' and I said 'Oh, okay' and once I knew he was the smartest guy in the room the character really made sense.
