Rory dans le film "The commitments" de Alan Parker ?

Message par Garbage Man le Jeu 20 Jan 2011, 13:53



Synopsis : Splendeur et misères d'un groupe de soul music de Dublin, les Commitments, formé par Jimmy Rabitte. C'est au moment où leur musique devient parfaite que leur groupe éclate.

In the early nineties, Rory was even approached by Alan Parker when he was casting members of the band for his film of "The Commitments".

J'ai souvent entendu parler de cette histoire, comme quoi Alan Parker (immense cinéaste) à qui l'ont doit "Angel Heart", "Midnight Express", "Mississippi Burning"... aurait approché Rory pour qu'il joue dans son film "The commitments".

Absolument, voici ce qu'en dit Donal Gallagher:

Roddy Doyle, who wrote that, based it on Rory.

Rory was a sort of muse for that – kind of the guy who didn’t want to play this show band music, and went out and sort of went for a different form of music, i.e. the blues. In the movie, it’s soul music. In fact, when they were casting for the movie, [director] Alan Parker called the office.

He had gone back to the writer, Roddy Doyle, and said that they couldn’t find the trumpet player, Lips or whatever the guy was called. Roddy said to Alan Parker “Well, if you can’t find him, truth be known, I wrote it about a guitar player – Rory Gallagher. If you could get Rory to play the part of Joey ‘Lips’, the trumpet player, I’ll rewrite the screenplay to be a guitar player.

The whole legend of ‘did he play with so-and-so’, that all comes from Rory – did Rory play with Muddy Waters, did he play with Jerry Lee Lewis, did he have this reputation, did he really go out there and do it?” I managed to get Rory as far as Alan Parker’s office, and Rory just refused.

He did a reading for him, but just said “Look, I’m not the one.” At the time, I was praying that he’d take the part. I really thought it would be a life-changing experience for Rory at a crucial point in his life. I thought he’d really have to look at life differently. It wasn’t to be. But in fact, in the movie, the last line is “Let’s go back to Gallagher’s.” "
