Maybe I’m a little bit out of the loop, but this Tumblr thing is pretty cool. I’ve linked to ltrane‘s page before, but Keir fans should definitely go over to 100bottlesofkeir, I really like what they are doing over there, lots of Keir GIFS and images. Check it out! And if you are so inclined you can check out my new Tumblr page, kgresource. Not sure how often I’ll update it but I’m getting into the Tumblr crowd, follow me if you’ve got a page.
It’s not at all uncommon for actors and actresses to work on more than one project together over the span of their careers. Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci, Clint Eastwood and Gene Hackman, and more recent stars such as Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, and George Clooney and Brad Pitt. Directors love actors who have chemistry on screen and often cast roles for it. Keir Gilchrist is no different. Over his short career he’s had a few encounters with an actor/actress more than once.

I’ve posted the pictures of Keir and Emma Roberts from the October 2010 issue of Nylon magazine in the gallery already, but I came across this picture earlier today. It is one page of the article written about “It’s Kind of a Funny Story.” If I can find the rest of the article I’ll post it here ASAP.
UPDATE: As promised, I found the rest of the article, click here to read. Thanks Ned Vizzini, author of IKOAFS.
“This Is England” is a film written and directed by Shane Meadows. Keir Gilchrist has said in a few interviews that he really admires the work of Meadows and would someday like to meet (or work with) him. “This Is England” was mentioned specifically by Keir as a film he enjoys. The film follows a young boy in 1983 England who gets caught up with some friendly (I use this term loosely) Skinheads amidst the Falkland’s War. The main character Shaun is portrayed brilliantly by Thomas Turgoose. Opposite of him is the twisted and broken Combo played by Stephen Graham (Boardwalk Empire, Snatch). Anyway, the movie is entertaining although I am by no means an expert on British Cinema. The comedic and light nature at the beginning of the film gives way to a very dark and disturbing feel as Stephen Graham enters, and especially by around the 82nd minute. The movie also spawned a TV series entitled “This Is England ’86” which I have yet to watch. Mature and graphic movie, but trailer is below and link to stream after the “continue reading.”
Nominations for the 2011 Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced tomorrow morning. Will Keir Gilchrist be nominated for a Best Supporting Actor award? Most likely not (though I’m sure he’ll be more deserving than some of the nominees), but hopefully United States of Tara will be represented in some fashion. Check back tomorrow for a Tara-Emmy report.
UPDATE: As expected, no nominations for Keir or United States of Tara. Disappointing. I mean, sure Modern Family is a good show, but do you really need 4 out of the 6 actors nominated for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy to be from the same program? Just sayin’.
Keir Gilchrist starred in the family film “Matty Hanson and the Invisibility Ray” (or “The Egg Factory” on IMDb) a few years ago. Though the film was officially released on DVD this year, Keir plays a 12 year old and appears to be a little older than that in the film. I would guess it was filmed in 2008 as he looks older than he did in “The Winner.” Anyway, its not a terrible movie if you have 80 minutes to kill, especially considering its a low budget straight-to-DVD. Link to stream posted after the click.
Came across this video the other day, it is an alternate take of the intro video for “The United States of Tara” by Tim DeLaughter. I still like the animated sequence better than this live shot, but it would have been a good sequence in season one to introduce the characters. Either way, I missed the intro video this season.
