Star turns to cheat­ing

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

AC­TOR Owen Wil­son needed a lit­tle ex­tra help with his lines while shoot­ing The In­tern­ship be­cause he strug­gled to get to grips with all the tech­nol­ogy talk. Wil­son co-stars with Vince Vaughn in the com­edy about two mid­dle-aged sales­men who talk their way into an in­tern­ship at the Google head­quar­ters in Cal­i­for­nia. Wil­son says it was hard re­mem­ber­ing all the hi-tech info when cam­eras started rolling, so he en­listed a few tricks he picked up on the set of 2001’s Zoolander to prompt him in scenes. ‘‘I was hav­ing a hard time learn­ing my dia­logue. . . (I) would have cue cards, and you know, lit­tle cheat sheets and they would . . . have some­body stand off cam­era and give you your lines and stuff, so I was able to get through it in a cred­i­ble way. I knew that it would work be­cause I’d ac­tu­ally used it in Zoolander where I was sup­posed to speak some French and Chi­nese in a scene.’’

The In­tern­ship is screen­ing now.
