Hollywood Reporter | Elia Kazan to John Steinbeck on casting 'East of Eden' | 
I looked thru a lot of kids before settling on this Jimmy Dean. He hasn’t Brando’s stature, but he’s a good deal younger and is very interesting, has balls and eccentricity and a “real problem” somewhere in his guts, I don’t know what or where. He’s a little bit of a bum, but he’s a real good actor and I think he’s the best of a poor field. Most kids who become actors at nineteen or twenty or twenty-one are very callow and strictly from N.Y. Professional school. Dean has got a real mean streak and a real sweet streak.

We pull up to the Indian Wells Tennis Garden a little after 11 a.m., and Spacey sorts through a collection of VIP badges. He has been told that a seat in Andy Murray’s box, where he has sat before, isn’t available because Murray’s coach, girlfriend and hitting partners are in it; but he’s offered the next best thing, Box 117, close enough to make eye contact, if ever Murray were to break focus. 
"I’ve often thought about whispering to him, ‘Keyser Soze is behind you,’ ” jokes Spacey, referring to the villain character in the 1995 thriller The Usual Suspects who won him his first Oscar. At least I think he’s joking. The delivery is so deadpan, it’s hard to be sure.

I’d been drawing some graphics for Laika’s new animated feature The Boxtrolls (due out in September), and a designer at the studio had recommended me to Wes (Nelson Lowry, who had designed [The Fantastic] Mr Fox). He’d tried to give me some warning, I think, by emailing me with the line “Something wicked your way comes…” but to be honest I had no idea what he’d meant, or exactly how wicked it was going to be! | (via Jason Kottke)
