Jude was on the cover of last Sunday’s LA Times Calendar section along with Haley Joel Osment and Steve Spielberg. There was a long feature on “A.I.” Here’s a link to the article online: LA Times.
Here’s some snippets where Jude is actual mentioned and quoted:
Indeed, forget any happy Disney-esque images of a singing, dancing Jiminy Cricket. David, the android played in the film by Haley Joel Osment (the star of “The Sixth Sense”) meets up with another “mecha” Spielberg calls “his scoutmaster.” This is Joe Gigolo, played by rising British star Jude Law.
“I’m a love mecha,” explains Law, who certainly seems well cast. “He’s a gigolo. He has various clients, some he just talks to, some he massages. Some he presumably takes a bit further. They are able to change the way in which he seduces.” Law, who studied mime and peacock movements to prepare, says his character does actually sing and dance in the film “as part of entertainment. He’s a full-service mecha.”
It’s hard to imagine a gigolo in a Spielberg film — even a robotic one. One of the great mysteries of “A.I.” is how the two disparate sensibilities mesh.
“It’s Steven’s film,” says Law, “but Stanley was talked about every day.” He catches himself, “I can’t say ‘Stanley,’ because I never met him. There was very much the underbelly of Kubrick around, which I quite liked.”
