Yesterday, on December 1st, Lee Pace joined his impressive Hobbit cast to help ring in the world premiere of the final franchise installment: The Battle of the Five Armies. The huge premiere was held at Leicester Square in London, where throngs of diehand fans braved the cold to line up at the barricades. Lee attended the event with his mother and father — and even posted a selfie of them on his Twitter.
Others in attendance included Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lilly, Orlando Bloom, Luke Evans, Sir Ian McKellen, Andy Serkis, Aidan Turner, Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Stephen Fry, Sylvester McCoy, James Nesbitt, John Bell, Adam Brown, Jed Brophy, Ryan Gage, Manu Bennett, writer/producer, Philippa Boyens, and director Peter Jackson.
Photos from the event have been added to the gallery, with hopefully more to come. You can also view some videos of Lee Pace from the green carpet below:
On November 13th, Lee Pace attended the 2014 AMC Holiday Party where he bumped elbows with other AMC stars. Among them: January Jones, Jon Hamm, and Kiernan Shipka of “Mad Men” fame and Emily Kinney from “The Walking Dead; Lee’s “Halt and Catch Fire” co-star, Toby Huss, was also in attendance. Several photos from the evening have been added to the gallery.
Lee Pace recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly, giving answers to their traditional interview segment: the Pop Culture Personality Test. This is usually a fun segment, where questions like “what song do you sing in the shower?” are asked. In Lee’s case, he answered the following: his first celebrity crush (he even wrote a letter!), how he planned his life growing up, the first album he was obsessed with, and what sex scene he’s rewound (a lot).
Check out his answers in the video above, or read in an excerpt below:
There is a new interview featuring Lee Pace, courtesy of Complex. While the main subject revolves mostly around AMC’s “Halt And Catch Fire” – what with the season one finale airing Sunday night – there’s also discussion of a few other projects. Namely, Lee once again talks about acting as Joe Macmillan versus a character like Ronan (as soon in Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy). Check out an excerpt below:
Is it fun for you to go back and forth from blockbuster like Guardians to a show where you’re doing a lot of character-based work?
I feel very fortunate to have that, very, very lucky because just for that reason. The characters are so different, the approach for the characters is so different. It’s not just about different people, it’s about a different way of working that I find very interesting, that I think I’ve had the good fortune to do. So, yeah, I love it!
Do you tend to gravitate toward characters you can see yourself in, or that are totally removed from how you think of yourself? Did you identify with Joe at all?
Like I said, it’s different ways of working. I never expected Joe to be, in a way, as close to me as he turned out to be, you know what I mean? When I read the beginning stuff, when I read the pilot and stuff, I didn’t think he was like me at all. But when I watched it back, when I watched what we had shot, I did feel like, “Oh, I understand that. I understand trying to walk into a new situation, starting a new endeavor, and maybe trying to be someone that you’re not. I get that.” I understand having a hard time connecting with someone that you care about deeply, and possibly losing them, and these are all things that Joe is going through.
I’m sorry, I kind of veered off away from your question, but I kind of do think… I don’t know, I like them both. They’re just different, very different. I’m definitely surprised at how much like me he is, and especially in this last episode. I mean I’m actor [laughs]; other characters, like Ronan, are about being something that’s not even human. But with a character like Joe, it’s a real study in humanity, and authenticity, and that’s the opportunity and that’s the important part, is to allow that authenticity in.
Lee Pace recently sat down with People for a short, fun interview — promoting both Guardians Of The Galaxy and “Halt And Catch Fire” in the process. In the segment called “People Chatter,” Lee had 60 seconds to answer give questions: the craziest stunt he’s ever done, his 80s jam, how he grooms his “fantastic eyebrows,” what he thinks Ned and Chuck would be up to in a “Pushing Daisies” reunion, and whether Ronan or Thranduil had a more uncomfortable costume. Check out the video above.
Yesterday evening (July 29th) Lee Pace headed to the Crosby Street Hotel to attend a special screening of Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy. Hosted by The Cinema Society (with Men’s Fitness and FIJI Water), the event sort of served as the unofficial New York premiere for the movie. Co-stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and Vin Diesel were all in attendance.
Additionally, Oscar Isaac and, as promised, Seth Meyers (whom Lee had spent time with earlier in the day for his late night talk show debut) stopped by. Marvel’s recently crowned Ant-Man, Paul Rudd, and Lee’s Marmaduke co-star, Judy Greer, were both at the after-party, which reportedly served innovative Grey Goose cocktails named “Guardian Galactic” and “Marvel Royal.”
The Hollywood Reporter spoke to Lee at the event, who said of his Guardians character, Ronan: “He’s really just someone who is at odds with the heroes. With differences, if you’re not able to solve them through politics, you’ll end up solving them through a war.”
Last night (or this morning, depending on your perspective), Lee Pace made his very first late-night talk show appearance in front of a live studio audience. In order to help promote Marvel’s upcoming movie, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Lee spoke to Seth Meyers as part of NBC’s “Late Night.” He elaborated on the 2am wake-up call he and Andy Serkis performed at Comic-Con just several days ago, along with some discussion on “Halt And Catch Fire.” Lee is as charming as ever — and, thankfully, did not vomit.
Lee Pace spent his weekend in sunny San Diego, California as part of the annual event, Comic-Con. This year, along with some select cast and crew, his focus was to help promote the upcoming final installment in The Hobbit trilogy: The Battle Of The Five Armies. Co-stars at the event included Benedict Cumberbatch, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Luke Evans, Graham McTavish, Elijah Wood, and Andy Serkis; Peter Jackson and Philippa Boyens were also there.
(Fun fact: On Friday night/Saturday morning, Lee Pace and Andy Serkis stopped by Hall H to greet all the sleeping fans. They stayed from 2:30-3:30am, saying hello and taking pictures with all that were camping out in line, preparing for the Warner Brothers [among other] panels later that day. For more info, check out MTV; LPO also re-tweeted many fan accounts/pictures, in case you want to dig through tweets and check them out.)
You can find several photos from the event now in the gallery, including pics from the BOFA panel, press lines, and various interviews throughout the day. (Unofficially, via YouTube, you can view the BOFA panel.) Additionally, check below for a variety of videos featuring Lee Pace (and Hobbit cast) talking about the film.
The world premiere of Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy was held tonight (July 21st) at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Lee Pace was at the event, helping to the promote the movie in which he plays the villain, Ronan The Accuser. (Fans of his might know by now that he’s missed quite a few movie premiers throughout his career, so tonight was a special treat.) Plenty of co-stars were on hand, including Chris Pratt, Dave Batista, Benicio Del Toro, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana, Glenn Close, Karen Gillan, Michael Rooker, Vin Diesel, and Gregg Henry; director James Gunn was, of course, also in attendance.
Numerous pictures from the event have been added to the gallery. (ETA:Pictures from the after-party added.) Additionally, check out a video below, in which Lee was interviewed on the red carpet:
Since late May, there have been lots of really great articles and interviews from Lee Pace. Previously, I had only updated about the recent fan Q&A, but I’ve since added numerous other press pieces to the archive. Mostly, Lee talks about “Halt And Catch Fire,” but there’s actually a lot of talk about his past projects, including “Pushing Daisies” (and how he feels about a musical adaptation), Soldier’s Girl, and even Marmaduke.
