Also they say there'll be some shooting in London so he'll be close to home and family. Which I'm sure he likes.

positive things to say about Mr Jason..well deserved...
Oh, yeah, and the movie also has Matt Damon. LOL

an interview, from CBS news, posted over on the IMDB thread..
does not mention Mr Jason, but does give a brief look and good
synopsis of the plot

Thanks for that, Kim. This movie sounds like it's going to be very thoughtful and interesting, and I'm glad to hear it has the support of the troops who are participating.
I was a little startled to see that the HMMWVs being used with their doors off. That would seem to sort of negate the whole point of a HMMWV!
(At about 2:45 and 3:05 into the clip, you can see soldiers in the back of a truck. It's a "deuce and a half", and I used to ride in one of them! Their design apparently dates from WWII and hasn't altered much since then. I was in a really small unit, and we didn't have people with discreet jobs like driver--everybody had to kind of double up. [I was trained to operate a 10K generator, for example] My squad leader drove our truck--she's about 5'1", and had to sit on a stack of manuals to see over the steering wheel!!)

Thanks, Kim! This film should provide an interesting insight, especially for people like me who'd never heard of the Green Zone.

Hilary, that is awesome...
Gils, U R most welcome...
I am ashamed to say, I also never heard of this green zone...
looking like an interesting movie...although, someone made the
comment over on the IMDB thread, that the book contained all
interviews...we'll see how it turns out...
I still don't fancy Matt Damon, sorry...LOL

OK, someone has also posted over on IMDB, that they need
"North American" looking extras, for the filming in the UK...

...oops, sorry Ladies, the above "guest" was me...LOL

How interesting--I wonder why they need to be "North American". The stereotypical "American" look is . . .
Anglo Saxon, like, English.
I also read that they had filmed stuff in Spain, using Norwegian students and tourists to achieve the effect!
What portion of the story features Americans in uniform in London??
I'm not following along very well tonight . . .

Hils, I read the same article about the Norwegian students being used
After reading your post, I'm confused, too...LOL
To me, can you tell the difference between an American
and a Brit...maybe by dress code...LOL...
I never thought we were that different...

Thanx for posting this bit of news Char!
Posted: Mon Mar 10, 2008 7:25 am
thanx Char, check out the blog from the Empires, I posted it over
on Jason News...a bit of a dark pic (Matt Damon giving speech), Mr
Jason standing to the side, and a nice line about wanting to lick
Mr Jason's face (Empire folks)...not Matt Damon (sorry, I still dont
Posted: Mon Mar 10, 2008 7:40 am
I don't like Matt Damon either, HAHAHAHAHA!
Posted: Mon Mar 10, 2008 9:38 am
I of course assumed that Matt Damon wanted to lick Jason Isaacs' face.
Might be a bit awkward to work together after that, I can't help but think . . .
And thanks for that new morsel, Char! (TOLD you he wasn't no lieutenant!)
