  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

I have some things from Keir’s film ISN’T IT DELICIOUS where Keir plays Bill Weldon. Some of the footage of Keir from the trailers looks funny. I can hardly wait to see this film. Here’s hoping it’s out on DVD soon.

2002 Interview With Keir – German With English Translation
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      1 Comment

I found an article online Keir gave from back in 2002. It’s in German so I had to run it through my Firefox translator. It’s a little jumbled in terms of the questions being asked and how Keir’s answers come off. I’m posting the English translation so please understand if it comes off as a little weird to read but the intention is easy to understand.

What is Really? – Keir Dullea

09 January 2002

American actor, he was one of the two main characters in Stanley Kubrick’s visionary sci-fi classic “2001 – A Space Odyssey” from the year 1968.

Keir Dullea, his wife Mia Dillon on his property in Fairfield, Connecticut. The 65-year-old is currently playing a lot of theater, especially in the county of his residence. After a handful of movie roles Part of astronaut Dave Bowman meant in Kubrick’s “2001,” the highlight of his career. In 1983, Dullea, who appeared in numerous film and television productions, can with his late wife Susie Fuller Theatre Artists Workshop, perfect their craft in the actor

2001: A Space Odyssey” was released in 1968, you were the 32nd What you were expecting from 2001?
Nothing really, it was still so far away, so elusive. I’m already more of a man who prefers to live in the here and now, than ever to think about the future.

In spring 2001, the American Dennis Tito was the first space tourist, traveled into space. 1968 Have you ever thought about that private space travel actually someday could be real?
Not really. The shooting took place at a time when the U.S. and the USSR were in a race for the first astronauts on the moon. It was for us to understand difficult enough that even rockets can fly into space.

Stanley Kubrick did with “2001” at the time caused a stir. Many thought he was crazy because he showed such scenes in which people communicate by videophone.
That’s right. Many of these scenes are futuristic 1966, when we shot the movie, and we worked on quite ridiculous. The work on this project was already completely strange but we quickly got used to the apparent absurdity of this job. The film set in London’s MGM studios, which no longer exist now resembled a kind of Disneyland. We lived for seven months in an illusory world. But in retrospect, Kubrick and Arthur Clarke proved when writing the screenplay vision. Their visions of the year 2001 have been found to be fairly accurate. At least partly.

After the huge success of “2001” You were traded in Hollywood as one of the rising stars. Other notable achievements were made, however.
But I had some, but not in Hollywood. I have successfully played Broadway theaters. The stage is my home, where I feel just as comfortable in front of the camera. In the past two years, I once again assumed roles in TV productions including the “Audrey Hepburn Story,” which by their father Joseph. And I take care of the set up by me and my now deceased third wife Artists Workshop in Westport, Connecticut, where I still live.

What is an Artists Workshop?
A kind of focal point for an actor who can prepare there for her next engagement. In addition, many stage performers come to us who are currently without a firm commitment to speak and want to keep the wheels oiled. I help these people also going to work on their artistic influence.

You will be 66 years old next year, when you retire?
Probably never. I want to practice my profession as long as possible. I am very active, traveling a lot and I have recently built with my fourth wife Mia a new home in Connecticut. Also, I’m still a jury member at the film festival in Lisbon. And I have not given up the hope of some games to make a documentary about the making of “2001”. That is my dream for years. Because this movie is a masterpiece, and I am very proud that I was able to participate in them. Only I should probably hurry, because Kubrick’s dead, and I will not getting any younger.

Interview: Andreas Renner


I did love what Keir said about his retirement. I am really hoping he can get that documentary about Stanley Kubrick together. I’d love to see what he’d have to say about both Stanley and making 2001, though I know he’s said quite a bit about it.

Keir Dullea Joins The Rotating Cast of “The Exonerated”
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

Just got this through a news alert.

Anthony Arkin, Keir Dullea and Carol Kane Join Rotating Cast of Culture Project’s THE EXONERATED, 11/6-11

Culture Project, in association with Innocence Project, Marc & Steven Kaplan, and Cheryl Wiesenfeld, welcomes Anthony Arkin (I’m Not Rappaport), Keir Dullea (Butterflies Are Free; 2001: A Space Odyssey) and Carol Kane (Wicked, Hester Street) to the rotating cast of the 10th anniversary production of the hit, award-winning play, The Exonerated, written by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen, for one-week only November 6 – 11 at Culture Project (45 Bleecker Street at Lafayette Street) where performances began September 15 for a limited engagement through December 2nd. Marsha Mason will join the rotating cast November 13 -18.

Directed by Bob Balaban (Gosford Park), the core non-rotating company of six includes Amelia Campbell (Our Country’s Good, A Streetcar Named Desire) as Sandra Cook, Bruce Kronenberg as Prosecutor 1, Curtis McClarin (Bring in ‘Da Noise, Bring in ‘Da Funk) as David Keaton, and April Yvette Thompson (Clybourne Park) as Georgia Hayes. Danton Stone (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest) will sit in for Jim Bracchitta as Prosecutor 2, November 6 -11; and Leonard Robinson (“Nick Cannon Presents: Wild ‘N Out”) will sit in for JD Williams as Robert Earl Hayes, November 6 – 18.

They have been joined onstage by rotating cast members Stockard Channing, Brian Dennehy, Steve Earle, John Forté, Richard Kind, Christine Lahti, Delroy Lindo, Lyle Lovett, Joe Morton, Peter Reigert, Chris Sarandon and Exonerees Sunny Jacobs & Kerry Max Cook, whose stories are shared within the play.

2012 marks the 10th anniversary of Culture Project’s New York premiere of The Exonerated, a ground breaking dramatization of the real-life stories of six individuals who were sentenced to death and later freed amidst overwhelming evidence of their innocence. It is a powerful play culled from interviews, letters, transcripts, case files and court records of individuals on death row. As timely as ever, The Exonerated is once again poised to increase visibility and to create a sense of urgency as part of a rising movement to restore justice to a system that has shown itself time and again to be deeply flawed. Since 1989, when the first DNA exoneration took place, an additional 292 post-conviction DNA exonerations have been won in 36 states.

The Exonerated premiered at Culture Project in October 2002 when it received critical acclaim and ran for over 600 performances. The New York Times declared, “How often do you feel that what you are seeing is a matter of life and death? Here we see six people who served hard, cruel time on death row before evidence proved them innocent. The stage is courtroom and living room; these people are intrusting their lives to us. Their stories intersect, but the differences between them strengthen the awful likeness that justice imposes when it is blind and deaf.”


The irony of this: The play is being directed by actor Bob Balaban who played Dr. Chandra in 2010: ODYSSEY TWO with Keir reprising his role of Dave Bowman. This man just does not slow down. But then good for us. We get to see more of him.

Happy 76th Birthday Keir

Keir Dullea on

It is with great pleasure I wish Keir a Happy 76th Birthday. Personally, he doesn’t look a day over 60. He’s still looking quite good and I think it’s his work ethic that is keeping him young. It’s my sincere wish Keir spends this day with Mia, family, good friends and a glass of wine. Enjoy Keir.
