Dave Bowman Listed As The 100 Greatest Characters of All Time
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

Keir’s character of Dave Bowman from 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY has been named as one of the 100 greatest science fiction characters of all time. Keir’s 2001 sidekick HAL-9000 (Douglas Rain) has also made the list. Considering the importance of the film and the fact it has been largely one of the most copied films of all time, I would have hoped Keir and to a degree Douglas Rain would have been higher up on the list. The same thing for the character of George Taylor played by the late Charlton Heston from Planet of the Apes and Beneath The Planet of the Apes. That Bowman is listed below lesser characters like Major Shepherd from Stagate: Atlantis and Samantha Carter from Stargate: SG-1 is a travesty. It just goes to show where the tastes of America rest. With all the crap on television and the umpteen million remakes and sequels it’s not surprising Bowman and Keir are so low on the list. Here is the whole list and you can comment on what you think.

Top 100: Greatest sci-fi characters of all time

To mark the launch of its new game, Stratego Sci-Fi has surveyed more than 2,000 Britons to chart the Stratego Sci-Fi 100 – the nation’s top 100 stars of the sci-fi world – as well as a separate poll charting the best sci-fi battles from the silver screen – and has crowned Superman the greatest sci-fi character of all time

Following up the Man of Steel in 2nd place in the Stratego Sci-Fi 100 was Harrison Ford’s gruff but lovable rogue Han Solo, with Frank Oz’s jedi master Yoda coming third, both representing Star Wars in the top three and rounding it out firmly in George Lucas’ favour. Steven Spielberg’s E.T may be one of the most lovable characters of all time, but only made it to fourth in the list, followed by Will Smith’s Agent Jay from the hugely popular Men in Black series at number five.

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.

Keir Rehearsing for “Butcher’s Cabin”
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

Keir just recently staged a reading for a new play for the Newtown, Conn. Stray Cats Theatre Company. More below the cut:

Rehearsing with the pros: ‘Butcher’s Cabin’ at Newtown

David Begelman, Theater Critic
Updated 06:31 p.m., Thursday, January 19, 2012

NEWTOWN — You’ve got to hand it to the Stray Kats Theatre Company and its artistic director, Kate Katcher. On what looks like a shoestring and a modest venue in Newtown’s Edmond Town Hall, audiences this past weekend had the privilege of watching professional actors do a staged reading of a new and thought-provoking play.

The drama was “Butcher’s Cabin” by playwright Kent R. Brown, an author of 16 other dramas produced in Canada, Belgium, The Netherlands and Australia, as well as in this country.

The company of two men and three women was led by Keir Dullea, best known for his leading role as Commander Dave Bowman in Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece “2001: A Space Odyssey,” as well as featured roles in many other films and plays.

In “Butcher’s Cabin,” the audience was in for a double treat: viewing performers begin a rehearsal of a play with scripts in hand, followed by a question and answer session with the playwright and his cast.

Amos Butcher (Dullea) is a felon convicted of a double murder who is given a compassionate release from prison due to a terminal illness. He is first seen in a cabin ravaged by inattention and filled with pornographic graffiti, the handiwork of marauding adolescents over the years.

Butcher is irate about the condition of the place, irascibly ordering others he has hired to clean things up. They include an alcoholic housekeeper, Valerie, a hireling who is a good deal short on task diligence and maturity herself, and her son.

The latter is a wastrel whose girlfriend, Jody, is a lesbian stripper who declares she may or may not marry him.

Butcher awaits the arrival of Charlene, whom he intends to marry despite the short time he has to live. Playwright Brown’s drama aims at depicting how all the principals are in various stages of conflict with each other, a tension that begins to dissolve as does the graffiti in a full-scale production.

Another side of Butcher is eventually revealed through sudden hallucinatory episodes he experiences that recall the eventful moments of the crimes for which he was sentenced to prison.

The characters, despite being members of a Tennessee underclass, draw together after Amos’ revelations. Jody performs the marriage ceremony of Amos and Charlene, while other characters join in the celebratory mood.

The drama is a work in progress for the playwright, the theme of which brings to mind one of Shakespeare’s observations: “How oft when men are at the point of death have they been merry.”

Dullea was capably assisted in the rehearsal by Katie Sparer, Kim Maresca, Emilie Roberts and Michael Wright, all of whom contributed solidly to the effort. Future productions at the theater include “Seascape,” “Wonderful World” and “The Subject Was Roses.”

“Butcher’s Cabin” was performed Saturday in the Alexandria Room of Edmond Town Hall, 45 Main St., Newtown. Tickets were $25 by reservation, $30 at the door. For details on future productions, call 203-514-2221 or visit www.straykatstheatrecompany.org.

Looks like Keir’s keeping busy these days with theatre projects. I’d love to see this one, it sounds amazing. That description of Keir’s character being surrounded by pornographic graffiti and the fact he’s playing a convicted murderer. A combination of both makes this play a winner with Keir’s exceptional talent.
