A new interview featuring Lee Pace, Michael Angarano, and Max Winkler of Ceremony fame has surfaced. Once again, it’s from their appearance at the Empire State Building last week. They talk about the film, Uma Thurman, and upcoming projects. Check it out at NYGossipGirl, or watch it below:
Continuing his theatrical streak lately, it has just been announced via Broadway.com that Lee Pace – along with The Normal Heart co-star, Jim Parsons – will present at the OBIE Awards on May 16th. The ceremony honors performances on off-Broadway and “off-off-Broadway” productions and is different from other award shows in that nominees are not announced beforehand. Other presenters announced include Alec Baldwin, Robert Sean Leonard, and numerous other stage actors.
On a semi-related note, The Normal Heart‘s official Facebook just posted the first cast photo. It appears to be a “behind the scenes” look at a photo shoot, so hopefully more pictures will surface soon.
In honor of The Twilight Saga hitting twenty million fans on Facebook, they’ve posted a video of Lee Pace. In it, he thanks the fans of the series, as there would be no Breaking Dawn without them. You can view the video above or check out screen caps in the photo gallery.
Another interview from Lee Pace, Michael Angarano, and Max Winkler has been posted — this time at Gordon & The Whale. It’s, once again, from their visit to the Empire State Building a few days ago. Check out an excerpt below. It’s also been added to the Press Archive here.
How has it been since SXSW, traveling the festival circuit and getting ready to release in theatres this weekend?
Max: We’ve had a lot of fun! We’ve been getting to go to really cool cities and talk to people about the movie. Our New York premiere was just last night which was very exciting for us. It seems like people like the movie which is very nice for us to hear.
Michael: So exciting. Like we always say about the movie, it’s a very personal movie and it’s very important. You know, I am very encouraged when people say they like the movie. It feels much more personal and very special. It’s very exciting now that people are going to finally see it.
Lee: I just had a fun time making it it. I had fun working with these guys! My memory of the movie is just living in that house together, the cast spent a lot of time together. I just remember messing around and then to see the movie cut together, I’m really proud to be a part of it.

As of today, Ceremony has been officially released to a limited theatre run. To check when when the film might be near you neighborhood, visit Magnolia Pictures’ play dates. On a related note, Interview Magazine has just released a new interview with Lee Pace himself. It has been added to the Press Archive here.
GILLIAN MOHNEY: The movie is set at a weekend wedding, so you basically had to party for about a month—what was that like onset?
LEE PACE: That’s basically what making the movie was—it was just really fun. Every day was fun. It was really good group of people. It was a really enjoyable movie to make. You hope it translates to the screen—sometimes it doesn’t. You can be having a good time and it’s a bad movie.
MOHNEY: How did you get involved?
PACE: My agent sent me the script and said, “This is a really fun character,” and I said, “I totally agree. What do I have to do?” I was off in Vancouver shooting another movie. I forget how it all went down, but there was a point where I was out camping—I had found this island off the coast of Maine and I was camping there. I didn’t have any cell phone reception, and I get [a signal], and I had all these messages saying, “You need to come to New York to read for this!” [My agent] was like, “You need to come fight for it!” I got on a plane the next day—I was in the middle of nowhere, Maine. I came to New York, read for it, and got it, basically.
MOHNEY: Is it more fun to play the foil rather than the romantic lead?
PACE: It’s totally fun to play troublemakers—totally… With someone like Whit, who gets the whole picture from the beginning, it’s fun to see how he behaves.

Additionally, a short interview featuring Lee along with Michael Angarano and Max Winkler has popped up. It’s from their Empire State Building visit a couple of days ago. (Thank you to @LOisVE for the heads up!) Check it out below or in the Video Archive here.:
Fans might appreciate the latest public appearance from Lee Pace, which almost looks like a photo shoot. (It has been a while since a new set, huh?) He, along with Michael Angarano and Max Winkler (director of Ceremony), posed together atop the Empire State Building in New York earlier this evening, April 6th.
The Daily caught up with Lee Pace at the after-party of Henry’s Crime the other night, where they informed him about “Pushing Daisies” trending on Twitter worldwide. Here’s his response regarding the show, and how he manages to finagle nachos from a few fans in Vancouver.
ABC’s dearly departed series “Pushing Daisies” was trending on Twitter this week (two years after its cancellation), but its star Lee Pace didn’t know until Flash told him at the Cinema Society-hosted after-party for Keanu Reeves’ new movie Henry’s Crime in New York on Monday night. Despite fans’ desperate attempts to save the show, Pace admitted: “I’m happy it’s off the air, because it was so much work.” By contrast, he just wrapped the latest Twilight movie, which he described as “the easiest job ever.” And the off-set perks were pretty good too. “The fans camp outside the hotel,” Pace said. “I was really stoned and they offered me some nachos, in exchange for a picture. Seemed like a fair deal.”
On April 4th, Lee Pace spent his evening at the Henry’s Crime after-party, along with stars such as James Caan, Keanu Reeves, and Vera Farmiga. Following the screening of the romantic caper, guests congregated at the Cooper Square Hotel to party. Other guests who attended the festivities include Courtney Love, Jena Malone, Kevin Zegers, Lee Daniels, Parker Posey, Stephen Baldwin, Tim Roth, among many more.

The New York premiere for Ceremony – Lee Pace’s latest film – took place at the Angelika Film Center earlier this evening, April 5th. He was accompanied by director Max Winkler and co-stars, Uma Thurman and Michael Angarano. Others at the event included Alexa Chung, Edward Burns, and Noah Baumbach. If any more pictures surface, I’ll add them to the gallery as soon as possible. WWD reported about the after-party, in which Lee is briefly mentioned:
The reclusive Thurman slunk over to an elevated booth overlooking the dance floor, where she was joined by Angarano, Pace, and apparent good friend Russell Simmons, who spent most of the evening kissing her cheek or praising her film. When Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” came on, Pace, Thurman and Simmons all hopped to their feet to shimmy to the chorus, before settling back down in the booth, with Pace scooting off to swipe spare bottles of spirits from neighboring tables.
Many thanks to Bee at 100% Novak Djokovic for the HQ pictures!
Lee Pace Odyssey would like to wish Lee a very happy birthday!
May your “dream role” come true!
