Leonardo DiCaprio, Clint Eastwood kick off TimesTalks in L.A. with “J. Edgar” – AWARDS ALLEY


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Some big names running in this year’s Oscar race (and others hoping to tag into the marathon) are participating in TimesTalks, an event sponsored by The New York Times that will take place at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

The series begins this Friday, Nov. 4, in the facility’s Bing Theater, where “J. Edgar” director Clint Eastwood, screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and cast members Leonardo DiCaprio, Armie Hammer and Naomi Watts will participate in a Q-and-A following a screening of the anticipated biopic.

The following day, Viola Davis will participate in a TimesTalks event to discuss her roles in “The Help” and “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close,” Stephen Daldry’s adaptation of the best-selling novel. Davis’ conversation will be followed up by what’s sure to be a rousing talk with John C. Reilly and Christoph Waltz about their roles in Roman Polanski’s “Carnage.” Reilly’s also expected to elaborate on his role in Lynne Ramsay’s fantastic “We Need to Talk About Kevin.”

The TimesTalks series will run through 2012, with additional events being announced in the coming months. For tickets, $25, visit http://lacma.org or contact the box office at 323-857-6010/ boxoffice@lacma.org.
