The Center Theatre Group’s production of Martin McDonagh’s The Lieutenant of Inishmore opened at the Mark Taper Forum on Sunday, July 11.

Wilson Milam directs the production, which stars Chris Pine, Ian Alda, Andrew Connolly, Coby Getzug, Seán G. Griffin, Kevin Kearns, Zoe Perry, and Brett Ryback.

Among the opening night guests were Courtney B. Vance, Shawn Christian, Johnny Galecki, Tate Donovan, Robert Pine, and Lorien Hawkins.

The show is set in 1993 on a rocky island in County Galway where Padraic (Pine), a hard-boiled terrorist is lured home by the news that his beloved cat, Wee Thomas, is doing poorly. When Padraic discovers the cat has been murdered, he initiates a cycle of revenge-killing that threatens everyone in his path.


Thanks so much to JenLynn for the high qualities! <3

Jack Ryan Film ‘Moscow’ to start filming soon, hopefully.

Steve Weintraub of Recently caught up with with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura to talk about his upcoming action thriller Salt, whom also will produce Chris’s upcoming Jack Ryan project ‘Moscow’. Here is what he had to say:

Finally, I asked him what projects are bubbling up to the surface and he said the next Jack Ryan movie, Moscow, that Chris Pine is attached to and The Associate – which is a John Grisham book that Shia Labeouf’s attached to. When I asked how the script was for the Jack Ryan movie, he said they had a great one and he is hoping to start shooting late winter/early spring.

Do you mind me asking what’s bubbling up what’s bubbling to the surface right now for you?

Lorenzo: Well, we’re hoping to get Jack Ryan off the ground with Chris Pine and that’s really exciting. And this movie called The Associate which is a John Grisham book that Shia Labeouf’s attached to. We’re hoping to get that off the ground shortly, too.

SW: I spoke to somebody about the Jack Ryan project and the last time I spoke it was I think I want to say it was somehow tied to Moscow? Am I wrong about that?

Lorenzo: It’s called Moscow.

That’s right. So I guess, do you guys have a script? Or just figuring out his….

Lorenzo: We have a very good script. I think it’s…I’m very happy with where we are today and we’re looking forward to…maybe with a little luck starting next late winter/early spring.

Oh this year or early next year?

Lorenzo: Of early next year, yeah.

Chris Pine hasn’t let ‘Star Trek’ fame keep him from stage

Christopher Pine hasn’t let Captain James T. Kirk get in his way.

In fact, “Star Trek’s” gung-ho starship commander would probably admire Pine’s “I’ll do it my way” approach to his career.

Pine, 29, is a serious theater actor, and unlike most stage-trained performers who find sudden Hollywood fame, he hasn’t abandoned live performance.

Playing Kirk in last year’s blockbuster movie “Star Trek” has put the handsome Los Angeles native on a career fast track, but he’s still a regular on L.A. stages, too. In 2007 he appeared in Neil LaBute’s “Fat Pig” at the Geffen Playhouse; last year he starred opposite Chris Noth in the tense political drama “Farragut North,” also at the Geffen.

Now Pine will tackle one of British theater’s hottest and most challenging playwrights, Martin McDonagh, in the blood-soaked, pitch-dark 2001 comedy, “The Lieutenant of Inishmore.” It opens July 11 at the Mark Taper Forum.

We talked to Pine recently about “Inishmore,” his love of theater, and his career.

The Orange County Register: Did you see this play before landing the role of Padraic, its dark-hearted leading man?

Christopher Pine: I did not. I was more familiar with McDonagh from his film work, the short he won the Oscar for and “In Bruges,” which I was a huge fan of. From there I discovered his theater work. In college I had done a scene from “The Cripple of Inishmaan.” And I had heard from a lot of my friends in New York about how much they’d enjoyed (“Inishmore”). Continue reading
