the teaser trailer for THE TEN is out now! justin plays jesus in it, it's a parody of the ten commandments (so it's broken into 10 segments, him being in one, obviously). i never thought i'd say this but he looks great as jesus, hehe.
Has anybody checked out the main site lately? I've been meaning to update for ages but just finally got around to it, I still have a lot to go! Anybody willing to help out is welcome, just let me know if you'd like to contribute anything.
BTW, Justin's new film Dedication gets released at Sundance this week... he needs all the support he can get!! So if you're going, please see it.
Time to wake up this community! I made a couple icons for myself, but I thought I'd share...
And I also started a painting of Mr. Theroux last week. I'm currently waiting for it to dry before I move on to the next step (lots and lots of detailing left; need to finish his jacket and start on his shirt and tie), but this is what I have so far...
By the way, Brittyn, I tried e-mailing you about helping with your site's layout but your Inbox is full, apparently.
At the list minute, they've added Justin to the list of "players" for this year's Celebrity Charades at the LAByrinth Theater in NYC. It's on Monday, Sept. 26 and tickets range between $250-$500 (for charity). More info can be found here. I wish I could go!
very exciting!! about justin's script from filmstew.com:
"Although no films were actually made under their first deal, DreamWorks Pictures has re-upped Ben Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld's Red Hour Films in a new three-year, first-look production deal. The new deal carries sweeter terms for Red Hour, and the studio is already developing a slew of pics with the company.
One of the major projects being developed as a potential starring and directing vehicle for Stiller is Tropic Thunder, an original idea from Stiller, Etan Cohen and Justin Theroux. The story centers on a group of actors, all of whom went to boot camp for an upcoming film, who must rely on their new training when the get stuck in a real war situation."
Anyone who thinks acting is glamorous should trade places with Justin Theroux. Huddled on freezing Wachusett Mountain the other night, the "Six Feet Under" star was beginning to wonder what he'd gotten himself into. "A lot of this movie takes place outside and at night, and it's supposed to be fall," said Theroux, who's filming "The Legend of Lucy Keyes" in tiny Princeton, Mass. "There we are dressed for fall in our white sweaters and trendy jackets, and it feels like winter." (The ghost story, also starring Julie Delpy, is being produced by Boston-based Moody Street Pictures and directed by Princeton native John Stimpson.) When this wraps, Theroux is headed back to Hollywood to work on a film he wrote with Ben Stiller, and then to India to do a movie with Ismael Merchant and James Ivory. Oh, wait, acting is glamorous.

Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Tonya Pinkins, Bebe Neuwirth, Justin Theroux and more special guests will help the LAByrinth Theatre Company members return for "Celebrity Charades: The Rematch at The Roxy," Sept. 27.
The second annual LAB benefit will also honor George C. Wolfe with The Dave Hoghe Award for "his artistic courage and outstanding dedication to LAByrinth Theater Company" and host a live auction.
The event will feature "The Fearless Challengers" miming their best versus "The Reigning Champions." Among the featured players will be artistic directors Philip Seymour Hoffman (Long Day's Journey Into Night) and John Ortiz (Anna in the Tropics), Mos Def (Topdog/Underdog), Rosie Perez (Reckless), Tonya Pinkins (Caroline,or Change), Jimmy Smits (Anna in the Tropics), Daphne Rubin-Vega (Rent), Kristen Johnston (Aunt Dan and Lemon), Bebe Neuwirth (Here Lies Jenny), Maya Rudolph ("Saturday Night Live"), Justin Theroux ("Six Feet Under"), Bob Balaban ("A Mighty Wind"), Bobby Cannavale (Fucking A), Sam Rockwell ("Confessions of a Dangerous Mind"), Dean Cain ("Lois & Clark"), Peter Dinklage ("The Station Agent"), David Zayas (Anna in the Tropics), director Brett Ratner ("Rush Hour"), designer Cynthia Rowley, Yul Vazquez (Stendahl Syndrome), director George C. Wolfe (Caroline, or Change) and Jeffrey Wright (Angels in America).
Playwright Eric Bogosian is set to host the live auction featuring "money-can't-buy items (like bowling with Hugh Jackman; dinner and an evening of theatre with Vanessa Redgrave; and Philip Seymour Hoffman reading Dr. Seuss to your children)," according to a release.
Last year, the troupe presented Madonna with the inaugural Dave Hoghe Award. The songstress helped LAByrinth bring its production of Jesus Hopped the A Train to London's West End in 2002.
THE LAByrinth Theater Company began in 1992 when 13 actors joined forces to form a place to work. The company has since garnered acclaim for its stagings of Stephen Adly Guirgis' works Jesus Hopped the A Train and Our Lady of 121st Street. The company, as last season, is in residence at the Public Theater.
The benefit evening with "Celebrity Charades" is scheduled to start with a VIP reception at 6:30 PM at The Roxy, 515 West 18 Street. Tickets are available by calling (212) 279-4200.
