The Movie Crypt

Apr 18, 2022

PUBLIC VERSION. Actress Elisha Cuthbert (HAPPY ENDINGS, 24, ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK, OLD SCHOOL, THE GIRL NEXT DOOR, LOVE ACTUALLY, HOUSE OF WAX, and SO many more) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to discuss her career journey. From the intensity of shooting a series as ambitious as 24… to her honest initial reaction to Richard Curtis’ screenplay for his genius romantic comedy LOVE ACTUALLY… to the choices that made Luke Greenfield’s THE GIRL NEXT DOOR such a classic coming of age film… to the disappointment of seeing how different of a movie CAPTIVITY became after an executive decision was made to shoot a whopping 30 pages of “new/additional scenes” after principal photography had already been completed… to Elisha’s amazing story about how sticking to her guns and speaking up lead to her being cast in HAPPY ENDINGS… to a super in-depth discussion about the making of her latest film THE CELLAR (now playing in theaters and streaming on SHUDDER) and what it was like filming in Ireland during the height of the global pandemic… this is an absolutely phenomenal conversation that you’re going to wish never had to end. (We could have easily gone on for another 2 hours if time had allowed!) 

Unfortunately, there is no “Hollywood Therapy” segment this week as Arwen wasn’t feeling well (don’t worry, she went to the vet right after this recording and she’s already feeling much better) but Elisha was able to answer a bunch of your “Viewer Mail” questions before we ran out of time!
