Tim Roth Interview – Lie to Me’s Third Season Mysteries

HollywoodNews.com: Everyone’s favorite human lie detector is back. Lie to Me returns for its third season airing over the summer. Tim Roth is Cal Lightman, facing tougher liars than ever and getting physical. Roth spoke with the media in a conference call. Here’s what he revealed about upcoming episodes. Lie to Me airs Mondays this summer on Fox, starting June 7.
Q: How do those Fight Club style promos reflect what’s happening this season?
Tim Roth: Actually, we did one where Lightman goes along to illegal underground fights, that kind of world, gets involved with that. While we were there we shot a promo which we thought was kind of funny and then they stuck with it. I quite like it. It looks to me like Lightman should get bashed up a lot. I don’t think he’d survive without that.
Q: So that’s coming up later?
TR: Yeah, yeah, yeah. It’s actually a very good episode.
Q: What other cool episodes are coming up?
TR: Well, I think the overall thing is that we’ll be looking at Foster and Lightman’s relationship a bit. We look at how they met which is a fun thing that we do. There’s my relationship with my ex-wife, also with my daughter. The daughter starts to feature more and more heavily. She’s such a good character and the actress is so very good, we’ve been writing to that. The cases get strange and a little bit more adrenaline floating around this season I think.
Q: So we’re going to see more the romance between Cal and Gillian?
TR: Yeah, in the second season you do. There’s a boyfriend that rolls up for her and there’s the odd fling for me in the second season but in the third, they’re actually sitting down to determine how the characters are going to progress right now. I’ll find out before you guys do.
Q: Jennifer Beals has a new show now, but did you leave the door open for her to come back as Cal’s ex-wife?
TR: Oh yeah.  Yeah, definitely. I don’t know how they quite handle things like that to be honest with you. This is fairly new to me, the television thing but I know that that door is always going to be left open. So there’ll be discussion about her when she’s absent, and maybe she can come back and do something or other. I imagine, I think she’s the #2 on the call [...]

Reactions From Oscar Nominees

The Hollywood Reporter has compiled a list of notable reactions from the Oscar nominees. Read some of them below:
“I do believe some liposuction is in order, a very strict diet regime, and I will acquire a very light English accent. I was going to say that I should start wearing glasses, but I already wear glasses, so I am already sort of there.”
“Every once in a while, things going on in the bigger picture fuel the success of a film. People wanted to have something resonate on the positive side.”
“I’d always assumed that the road to Oscar was planned. I thought people chose projects that were considered ‘Oscar-worthy.’ No one wanted to make this film. I didn’t want to make this film for the better part of the year. Everyone is as blindsided — can I say that? — as I am.”
- Sandra Bullock, Best Actress nominee for The Blind Side

“I’m so grateful to have the honor of a fifth Oscar nomination, but to share this with my Crazy Heart colleagues T Bone and Ryan and my amazing co-star Maggie is truly special – this film is near and dear to my heart and theirs. I want to thank the Academy for being so kind to me for the past 40 years, and I want to thank my director Scott Cooper for helping bring Bad Blake to life, and to my wonderful wife Sue for being there for me the past 33 years. Today is filled with blessings”
- Jeff Bridges, Best Actor nominee for Crazy Heart

“Congratulations to Matt Damon on his nomination. I’m especially grateful to Clint Eastwood, ‘Invictus’ producer Lori McCreary, and the entire cast and crew of ‘Invictus.’ Most importantly, thank you to Nelson Mandela for his encouragement, his blessing and his friendship — without which, this film would not have been possible.”
- Morgan Freeman, nominated for Best Actor – Invictus

“This is more exhilarating than I could have ever imagined. What a tremendous honor from the Academy– a blazing stamp in the passport of an artist that can never be taken away and will always be cherished.”
- Jeremy Renner, Best Actor nominee for The Hurt Locker

“I’m so grateful to have the honor of a fifth Oscar nomination, but to share this with my Crazy Heart colleagues T Bone and Ryan and my amazing co-star Maggie is truly special – this film is near and dear to my [...]
