Tom Felton to film cameo for Jonah Hill’s “Get Him to the Greek”

Tom Felton to film cameo for Jonah Hill's "Get Him to the Greek"

It was just yesterday that Tom tweeted about some exciting filming he had coming up this Friday, and while he couldn’t talk about it at the time, it seems the ban has been lifted. Tom has just announced via his Twitter account that he will be shooting a cameo appearance for Jonah Hill’s new film, Get Him to the Greek.

So the exciting news that I mentioned yesterday is that I’m filming a cameo on Friday for Jonah Hills new film ‘Get Him to the Greek’

Looking forward to being on a new set….and working with Jonah will be a learning curve I’m sure! His work is fantastic….He’s hilarious.

Starring alongside Hill is Russell Brand, Elizabeth Moss, and Rose Byrne. The film will also include cameo appearances by Christina Aguilera, Katy Perry, Lars Ulrich, Pink, and Jack Black.

According to the film’s IMDB webpage:

Aaron Greenberg (Hill) gets things done. The ambitious 23-year-old has exaggerated his way into a dream job just in time for a career-making assignment. His mission: Fly to London and escort a rock god to L.A.s Greek Theatre for the first-stop on a $100-million tour. His warning: Turn your back on him at your own peril. British rocker Aldous Snow (Brand) is both a brilliant musician and walking sex. Weary of yes men and piles of money, the former front man is searching for the meaning of life.

As the countdown to the concert begins, one intern must navigate a minefield of London drug smuggles, New York City brawls and Vegas lap dances to deliver his charge safe and, sort of, sound. He may have to coax, lie to, enable and party with Aldous, but Aaron will get him to the Greek.

Clockwise from top left: Jonah Hill, Russell Brand, Rose Byrne, and Elizabeth Moss.

New Interview: Tom Felton Faces The Two Sides of Draco Malfoy

New Interview: Tom Felton Faces The Two Sides of Draco Malfoy

Life Style: Movie Magic Magazine has just released it’s latest issue featuring dozens of pages on Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Included are features on Tom, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, and Bonnie Wright.

The three page article on the life of Tom Felton includes information about his choir days, his music, his hopes to get out there and fish some more, and why he would love to continue acting.

Some notable quotes from Tom include:

On the comparison of filming and fishing…

“Patience is required heavily in fishing and much the same with the film set. Some days it doesn’t go as fast as you would have hoped or you would have expected. But it’s all about keeping the energy and not only being patient, but just enjoying every minute of it – because sometimes it can be quite easy to slump back if you have an hour or two to wait, and it’s important to make the most of the time with the cast and crew while you’re there.”

On fans confusing him with his character Draco…

“Very early on, some people took very seriously how I was making Harry’s life not pleasant at school and they would plead with me not to pick on him. They seem to associate me with something rather negative which I can only take as a compliment really, I suppose. … I tried to reasure them that nothing was real, and that me and Daniel [Harry] were quite good friends, but it didn’t work.”

And on his hopes for the future…

“I’d love to continue acting. … By the same token, I’m keeping all angles open, really. I’ve been intrigued to do other things. I mean, music has always been a passion of mine, and nature and so forth. I’m not really ruling anything out.”

Other articles feature the actors behind Tom Riddle (aka, Voldie-Mort), producer David Heyman, director David Yates, the designs behind the sets, and the fun and games the fans have at conventions. Also included is a sneak peek into the making of Deathly Hallows which features a lovely interview with Tom’s onscreen dad Jason Isaacs as he recounts begging author JK Rowling to “get me out of [Azkaban] prison.” Life Style: Movie Magic Magazine is available for purchase on news stands through the end of the summer.

Plenty More Malfoy: Moviefone interviews Tom Felton

Plenty More Malfoy: Moviefone interviews Tom Felton

In an article titled 15 Things to Know About ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’ conducted by Moviefone, number three was dedicated to the character of Draco Malfoy.

Tom Felton and Moviefone had this to say about HBP having “Plenty More Malfoy”:

3. Plenty More Malfoy
One character who gets a much more developed role in ‘Half-Blood Prince’ is Harry’s Hogwarts rival, Draco Malfoy, who in this film receives direct orders from Lord Voldemort. Bad for Harry, good for Tom Felton, the actor behind Malfoy. “It’s really nice to take him to a higher level, rather than just being an annoying git at the back of the classroom,” Felton says. “It’s really nice that he’s grown, he was quite a two-dimensional character in the previous films.” He’s also got a girlfriend in this installment, Pansy Parkinson (Scarlett Byrne). Felton’s favorite scene this go-around? “To be able to stand on [Harry's] nose has been a lifelong dream.”

The interview also included a fun fact about actor Jim Broadbent, who plays the new Potions master Horace Slughorn.

Fun fact: Broadbent played Tom Felton’s father in the young actor’s first film, ‘The Borrowers.’
