'Enough Said': Julia Louis-Dreyfus Q&A turns into adorable mini-'Seinfeld' reunion -- VIDEO

DREYFUS-HARRIS.jpg

If anyone can make you seek out the bittersweet romantic comedy Enough Said maybe George Costanza’s mother can pressure you into it.

Enough Said, which is in theaters now, stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a massage therapist who discovers that one of her clients (Catherine Keener) is the ex-wife of her new boyfriend (a lovable, lunkish James Gandolfini) and decides to use the relationship to secretly gather intel on her new man.

At a recent Q&A for the Nicole Holofcener film, Louis-Dreyfus talked a lot about her late co-star Gandolfini, whose final lead performance is also one of his most sweet and tender, and making the leap from cringe-comedy like her Emmy-winning role on Veep to a film with a more dramatic and romantic edge.

But then, at the very end, the entire show was stolen by one 85-year-old woman …

In Enough Said, which premieres at next month’s Toronto Film Festival, the late James Gandolfini plays Albert, a teddy-bear of a guy who falls for Eva, a single mom played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Both of them have one child who is about to begin college, leaving them alone to bond over their shared sense of abandonment. Their blossoming romance gets bumpy when she discovers that his ex is one of her new clients (Catherine Keener), a poet who unwittingly skews Eva’s impression of her new beau.

James Gandolfini 'didn't have a lot of confidence' acting in 'Enough Said,' says director

James Gandolfini took on his first ever romantic comedy in the months before his tragic death on June 19 — and it didn’t come as naturally to the Sopranos star as his numerous tough-guy roles.

In Nicole Holofcener’s Enough Said, Gandolfini plays Albert, a divorcee who falls for Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Eve, a divorced masseuse who’s facing an empty nest as her daughter prepares to leave for college. Eve loves Albert, but when she finds out that he’s the ex-husband of her friend/client, Marianne (Catherin Keener), she begins to question their relationship.

Louis-Dreyfus, who was cast first, loved the idea of working with Gandolfini. “When I brought up the idea of Jim, she was like, ‘Hell yeah! He’s sexy,’ says Holofcener. Unsurprisingly, the Veep actress felt more comfortable with the comedic stylings of Enough Said than Gandolfini. “Julia’s just a hilarious person,” says the director, who remembers a moment on set when she and Dreyfus simply could stop laughing. “We’re doubled over, and Jim is standing there like, ‘Oh my god, I think I signed up to be in a chick flick.’” READ FULL STORY

James Gandolfini stars in 'Enough Said' trailer -- VIDEO

Tony Soprano has a meet-cute with Elaine Benes. Enough Said.

Well, actually, that’s not the gist at all of Enough Said, the indie romantic comedy from Nicole Holofcener (Friends With Money). James Gandolfini, in one of his final performances, plays a sweet divorced dad who falls for a neurotic massage therapist (Julia Louis-Dreyfus). Potential problem: His ex is one of the therapist’s new clients, a woman (Catherine Keener) who bitches incessantly about her former husband to her massage therapist without knowing the damage she is creating. As a result, Louis-Dreyfus’ character can’t help but see her new boyfriend through his ex’s eyes. So when Gandolfini says to her after a date, “Why do I feel like I just spent the evening with my ex-wife?” — undoubtedly one of the cruelest sentences in the English language — there’s some truth there.

Martin Freeman, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, 2013 Oscar nominees honored at Shorts Awards

Martin Freeman starred in one of the lengthiest movies of 2012, but Friday night he was honored for his work in films with much shorter runtimes and much smaller budgets than the 169-minute-long Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. At the third annual ShortsHD Shorts Awards, Freeman picked up the Visionary Actor Award.

The English actor has continued to make short films, even after performing in high-profile projects like BBC’s Sherlock and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

“I love doing [short films] for the same reason that everyone in this room really likes them – because very often it’s the time that you get to really express an idea or ideas without someone breathing down your neck or without someone arguing about how big your trailer is,” Freeman told the audience gathered at the Paley Center for Media last night. “No one’s getting rich or famous out of it, but people are actually trying to express something – and it doesn’t take 18 months like The Hobbit does.” READ FULL STORY
