»Juno« director Jason Reitman casts Ellen Page as Han Solo for »Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back« live-read

Ellen Page will be taking on the part of dashing smuggler Han Solo in director Jason Reitman's live stage-reading of »Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back« at the Ace Hotel Theater in downtown Los Angeles on Thursday night. Other members of the cast include Aaron Paul as Luke Skywalker, Jessica Alba as Princess Leia, J.K. Simmons as Darth Vader, Stephen Merchant as C-3PO, Dennis Haysbert as Lando Calrissian, and Kevin Pollak as Yoda.

Film Independent - Live Read: The Empire Strikes Back

Casting an actress for the role of the captain of the Millennium Falcon felt as natural as it may seem surprising for Reitman. "Without Solo, it would be very easy for viewers to look at Star Wars cynically, he told Entertainment Weekly. "With him, we feel like we have an ally in this, and it allows the viewer to get closer to Luke and Leia. In casting Han, the most important thing is: Who has the most interesting, ironic approach to life? And when I think of that, I think of Ellen Page. She's a small human being who has the energy to fill Madison Square Garden." Asked about the fact that the grudging romance between Han and Leia will eventually be played out by two actresses, he answered that chemistry is chemistry, whether it be between a man and a woman, two women, or two men and he has no doubt that Ellen Page could have chemistry with anybody.

The major point of the live-read series is to take classic scripts and turn them into something we've never seen before. They are about experimenting with perceptions and expectations, and encouraging fans to consider the story and characters in different ways — even if they're only hearing about the performance from afar. The performances are designed as one-night-only experiences, especially since none of them have been recorded or shared. While the tickets for this upcoming event are already sold out, there will be a stand-by list for fans who want to give it a try. More details can be found at www.filmindependent.org.

Ellen Page shows off her taut tummy in W Magazine's October 2014 issue

Ellen is one of five cover stars of W Magazine's upcoming October 2014 issue, »The New Royals«. It will feature twelve standout women from the worlds of society, fashion, and show business, who share a rare combination of strength, charisma, and character and have been divided into new and classic royalty — a distinction based on time spent in the spotlight, more than anything else. Photographed in a classic studio setting with a gray background by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Page wears a Giorgio Armani jacket, a Gucci shirt, a Eugenia Kim hat and a Ralph Lauren Purple Label tie for the eye-catching cover shot.

W Magazine - October 2014W Magazine - October 2014

“I was 10 when I started acting. A casting director came to my school looking for kids. I auditioned for a TV movie called Pit Pony, and I got it. Acting became an immediate fixation. I was a child, but I was so ambitious.
At 17, I costarred in Hard Candy, about a pedophile and his victim, whom I played. My character had to castrate the pedophile. I’ve always loved learning things for a part, and I remember researching castration and thinking, This is so interesting. I’m a nerd that way: I love the challenges of this job.”

The issue hits newsstands on October 9th. Scans of the two-page feature will be added to the gallery as soon as I can find a supplier here in Germany!

The very first still from »Into the Forest« / Ellen and Kate Mara filmed a parody of »True Detective« for "Funny or Die"

While filming in Vancouver just wrapped up last Friday, Variety has already received the very first still from the post-apocalyptic drama »Into the Forest«. Furthermore, a selection of scenes will reportedly be screened at this year's Toronto International Film Festival (September 4 to 14, 2014). It is likely that is taking place behind closed doors and will be for the press and people of the industry only. The film itself is currently scheduled for release in the second quarter of 2015.

Into the Forest

Ellen, Kate Mara and Steve Agee also filmed a video clip for the website "Funny or Die" earlier this week, which looks like a parody on HBO's »True Detective«. This is surely no coincidence, since both actresses fueled casting rumors regarding the second season of the series by publicly chatting about the "idea of two tiny detectives" on Twitter in March.

Finally a personal matter: Regular visitors to this website may have noticed the lack of new articles and the sporadic updates in the past months. I don't want to bore you with details, but let's just say that I needed to adapt to new life situations. This also had an adverse impact on my leisure-time activities like maintaining this site dedicated to a Canadian actress. Since I still feel involved with this long-term project, my current plan is to catch up on some things I missed and write articles about the latest casting news concerning »Freeheld« (filming is scheduled to start at the end of September in New York City by the way) and the events surrounding the release of »X-Men: Days of Future Past« in order to reach the status quo in the foreseeable future. At the same time, I would like to announce that I will ease up and reduce my efforts on EPO to the bare minimum. This wasn't an easy decision to make, but due to the current overall situation as well as the disappointing behavior of two individuals and a recent incident in August it was a logical one.

Ellen Page comes out as gay at Human Right Campaign's »Time to THRIVE« conference for LGBT teens

Last night, Human Rights Campaign Foundation's first national »Time to THRIVE« conference promoting safety, inclusion and well-being for LGBTQ youth kicked off at Bally's Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Its goal is to engage a broad audience of youth-serving professionals, including K-12 educators, mental health providers, pediatricians, religious leaders, recreational athletic coaches, and youth development staff at places like Boys and Girls Clubs and YMCAs. The event also provides a "one-stop-shop" opportunity for these professionals to build awareness and cultural competency, learn current and emerging best practices, and gather resources from leading experts and national organizations in the field.

HRC Time to Thrive

Special guest Ellen Page made a big announcement on stage by coming out publicly in a powerful, emotional speech which was later viewed more than a half-million times within the first 12 hours on YouTube. A full transcript is available after the jump.

Hello! Wow. Thank you.

Thank you Chad, for those kind words and for the even kinder work that you and the Human Rights Campaign Foundation do every day—especially on behalf of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people here and across America.

It’s such an honor to be here at the inaugural Time to THRIVE conference. But it’s a little weird, too. Here I am, in this room because of an organization whose work I deeply admire. And I’m surrounded by people who make it their life’s work to make other people’s lives better— profoundly better. Some of you teach young people—people like me. Some of you help young people heal and to find their voice. Some of you listen. Some of you take action. Some of you are young people yourselves…in which case, it’s even weirder for a person like me to be speaking to you.

It’s weird because here I am, an actress, representing—at least in some sense—an industry that places crushing standards on all of us. Not just young people, but everyone. Standards of beauty. Of a good life. Of success. Standards that, I hate to admit, have affected me. You have ideas planted in your head, thoughts you never had before, that tell you how you have to act, how you have to dress and who you have to be. I have been trying to push back, to be authentic, to follow my heart, but it can be hard.

But that’s why I’m here. In this room, all of you, all of us, can do so much more together than any one person can do alone. And I hope that thought bolsters you as much as it does me. I hope the workshops you’ll go to over the next few days give you strength. Because I can only imagine that there are days—when you’ve worked longer hours than your boss realizes or cares about, just to help a kid you know can make it. Days where you feel completely alone. Undermined. Or hopeless.

I know there are people in this room who go to school every day and get treated like shit for no reason. Or you go home and you feel like you can’t tell your parents the whole truth about yourself. Beyond putting yourself in one box or another, you worry about the future. About college or work or even your physical safety. Trying to create that mental picture of your life—of what on earth is going to happen to you—can crush you a little bit every day. It is toxic and painful and deeply unfair.

Sometimes it’s the little, insignificant stuff that can tear you down. I try not to read gossip as a rule, but the other day a website ran an article with a picture of me wearing sweatpants on the way to the gym. The writer asked, “Why does [this] petite beauty insist upon dressing like a massive man?”

*pause*

Because I like to be comfortable. There are pervasive stereotypes about masculinity and femininity that define how we are all supposed to act, dress and speak. They serve no one. Anyone who defies these so-called ‘norms’ becomes worthy of comment and scrutiny. The LGBT community knows this all too well.

Yet there is courage all around us. The football hero, Michael Sam. The actress, Laverne Cox. The musicians Tegan and Sara Quinn. The family that supports their daughter or son who has come out. And there is courage in this room. All of you.

I’m inspired to be in this room because every single one of you is here for the same reason.

You’re here because you’ve adopted as a core motivation the simple fact that this world would be a whole lot better if we just made an effort to be less horrible to one another. If we took just 5 minutes to recognize each other’s beauty, instead of attacking each other for our differences. That’s not hard. It’s really an easier and better way to live. And ultimately, it saves lives.

Then again, it’s not easy at all. It can be the hardest thing, because loving other people starts with loving ourselves and accepting ourselves. I know many of you have struggled with this. I draw upon your strength and your support, and have, in ways you will never know.

I’m here today because I am gay. And because… maybe I can make a difference. To help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility.

I also do it selfishly, because I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered. And I’m standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain. I am young, yes, but what I have learned is that love, the beauty of it, the joy of it and yes, even the pain of it, is the most incredible gift to give and to receive as a human being. And we deserve to experience love fully, equally, without shame and without compromise.

There are too many kids out there suffering from bullying, rejection, or simply being mistreated because of who they are. Too many dropouts. Too much abuse. Too many homeless. Too many suicides. You can change that and you are changing it.

But you never needed me to tell you that. That’s why this was a little bit weird. The only thing I can really say is what I’ve been building up to for the past five minutes. Thank you. Thank for inspiring me. Thank you for giving me hope, and please keep changing the world for people like me.

Happy Valentine's Day. I love you.
