An account of the evening’s events from The Hollywood Reporter”
” [Gore] Verbinski was followed by Oscar winner Jeremy Irons, one of the many fine actors who were convinced to work for the young first-time director J.C. Chandor on Margin Call because of his marvelous script, which produced a first-rate and timely thriller. Irons presented the best breakthrough director award to Chandor, who subsequently recounted the funny garb in which Irons was adorned when he arrived on set to shoot a scene in a corporate boardroom, out of which he changed into boxers and a wife-beater before commencing in a table read-through. Chandor thanked Irons and the rest of the cast for delivering his words in a way that made him forget they were his own, and in so doing giving him a career.”
And more on Jeremy’s clothing from The Carpetbagger Blog from The New York Times:
“The Thursday for Best On-Set Appearance: Jeremy Irons, “Margin Call,” as recalled by J.C. Chandor, the director of that Wall Street thriller: “Jeremy walks into this high-tech building in the middle of Manhattan wearing leather lace-up boots above the knee, riding jodhpurs that are ballooning out, a Seinfeld-era pirate shirt with leather lace up – no buttons on the thing, they hadn’t been invented when it was made – and just to top it off, a sombrero.” (It would’ve been a whole different movie if they’d let him stay in that outfit.)”
