The Buzz: Serving Sara, Simone, & One Hour Photo
From a virtual movie star, to a psychotic photo clerk, to a down and dirty process server -- it's what's new at the box office this weekend.
(WSVN) Matthew Perry steps out of his role as Chandler on friends and into the lead of the new romantic comedy, "Serving Sara".
Matthew Perry, Actor, says "He's a darker character then most of the characters I've played before, which drew me to the project."
Joe serves people legal documents, and gets into a lot of trouble while doing it... especially when he trys to serve Elizabeth Hurley's character, Sara.
Hurley says it's a part that fell into her lap.
Actress Elizabeth Hurley says, "didn't have to meet anyone or go suck up to anybody. Just a nice fat script, plopped on my doorstep."
Comedians Cedric the Entertainer, Jerry Stiller, and Sopranos Star, Vincent Pastore are in this one too.
Al Pacino stars as a disillusioned director in "Simone".
After he loses his lead actress, Pacino's character creates a computer-simulated one instead.
"Simone, Simone. Simone's here, why didn't anybody tell me?"
Simone is an instant success.
"She's somewhat of a recluse, that's how she stays so pure."
The problem is everyone wants to meet her.
But is she real?
Simone, Virtual Actress, says "Well I'm the first totally believable, synthetic actress. I'm a combination of screen stars, both past and present, but also elements uniquely my own."
"I've been doing mini lab work for more than 20 years now. I consider it an important job."
Funnyman Robin Williams isn't joking around in his latest film, "One Hour Photo."
In this psychological drama, Williams plays a film developer, who becomes obsessed with some of his customers.
Actor Robin Williams says, "This is one of those, yeah, slightly vengeful movies that retribution waits around the corner for he who wanders away - who spreads his sacred seed."
He winds up stalking the family.
The funny man is working on his serious side. "One Hour Photo" is the third dramatic film in a row he's starred in.
One Hour Photo is in theatres already.
Serving Sara and Simone open on Friday.
