Eric Maddox - interrogator, author and OU alumnus explained the process of finding and capturing Saddam Hussein and detailed the dilemmas he faced to about 300 people in Oklahoma Memorial Union’s Molly Shi Boren Ballroom.
This same story is encapsulated in his book, “Mission: Blacklist #1,” on which a movie will be based starring Robert Pattinson, who will play Maddox.
“Somebody wants to make a movie about my story - it’s very exciting,” Maddox said.
Maddox said he has already met and gotten to know Pattinson.
“He’s a great guy,” Maddox said. “When they brought his name up to me, I had never heard of him before. I don’t believe in vampire movies and stories. I just didn’t know who he was.”
Maddox said he wore a single blue shirt for months in his search for Hussein, with no other changes of clothes. The shirt has a bigmouth bass embossed on it, Velcro pockets and bloodstains.
“I’ve still got it [the shirt.] I think Rob is gonna wear it in the movie,” Maddox said.
Maddox had to wait five years to tell his story and write the book due to the U.S. government preferring to keep it classified, he said.
“Since then, the United States government wanted me to endorse the movie, and wanted me to say who I am and what I do,” he said.
“Just thought I would share the rest of the story with you all… Well, we all know this picture right? I was visiting Insta-gator in Louisiana last weekend with some fellow twilighters and happened to spot it on the wall. I raced over to it and, although the pic doesn’t show it clearly, the paper above the pic says that the alligator, appropriately named, Hollywood, lives at the ranch and that if you ask the tour guide, you can meet him!!!! I immediately went into stealth mode knocking people over trying to find the guide because anything that touched Rob, I MUST TOUCH! Anyway, finally found the guide, who we had nicknamed Marshmallow Man, because he fed the gators marshmallows and because he was hot, and he acted like he didn’t know what I was talking about, all braun, no brains, I guess. He told us to go ask the short, red-headed guy. So I did, and do you know what he told me? He said, “Hollywood’s not here anymore. Rob paid to have him released back into the wild. It’s the only time we’ve ever done that.” Needless to say, tears started to form, not because I didn’t get to meet the gator, but because our Rob is that sweet! I cried and love him even more if that’s possible! And that my friends, is the rest of the story.”
Hollywood, our most famous insta-gator, who appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine, along with Robert Pattinson. Actor, musician, producer, and now alligator conservationist, Robert Pattinson of 'Twilight' fame, had arranged for gator, Hollywood's release. Louisiana's alligator ranching program, the greatest animal conservation program of all time, provides that 12 out of every 100 alligators grown to four feet are released back into the marsh where those alligator eggs were collected. As a result of the Louisiana alligator ranching program, established in 1985, the gator population in Louisiana has grown from a few hundred thousand to nearly 3 million!
Movie stars are an endangered species, so how does a rising generation of Hollywood talent break into the big time if having their name above the title means less than it ever has before?
“Sometimes people get in position where they get in a big movie and overplay their hand,” Wyck Godfrey, a producer of “Twilight,” said. “What that huge check does is put a target on an actor’s back.”
“Because fans of the book series love those characters, their fondness for the material gets transported onto the actor playing them,” Godfrey said. “The trick is just to not get enslaved to the character.”
He said that’s a trap that Lawrence, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Shailene Woodley, who is set to star in the screen adaption of the best-seller “Divergent,” have largely avoided by mixing up their performances in young adult epics with smaller-budgeted movies like “On the Road” or “Cosmopolis” that stretch themselves as an actor.you can read the whole article HERE ...!
With his buzz cut, bloodied face and bad teeth, Robert Pattinson’s latest style is a far cry from his Twilight character Edward Cullen.
The change is for new Australian film The Rover, which Pattinson, 26, is filming in South Australia. “He’s very smart,” director David Michôd told WHO, adding that it’s a long way from Hollywood. “It’s been one of the beaut experiences – to roam around and breath fresh air, but the flies are driving him crazy.”
For starters, we asked Stephenie her standout memories of the “Twilight” cast. “One of the first is when I first visited the set and I went out to dinner,” she began. “I hadn’t met anyone in the cast. They were coming from dinner and they were delayed. They came straight from a gallery shoot where they were all in character costume, make-up… the whole bit. So the first time I met them, they were dressed up like my imaginary friends. That’s not something you get every day.”
Stephenie again laughed heartily as she recalled her unforgettable first meeting with Robert Pattinson. “When Rob and I first met, we had lunch together [and] talked about the script. We sat there and argued for a solid hour and a half about the Edward character. And he was really sure I was wrong [in parts]. I was telling him, ‘This is how Edward feels…’ He said, ‘No, this is how he feels here.’ We went back and forth [that way]. It was hilarious and fun.”you can read her whole itv.... HERE
