Estevez is back - with juice
After a decade's vacation for all things Hollywood, Emilio Estevez returns - as a critically lauded director:
Emilio Estevez's terrific movie, Bobby, got a standing ovation last night at its premiere sponsored by the Times of London for the London Film Festival.
Estevez looked mildly shocked on stage as a full Odeon theatre, with guests including likely future prime minister of England Gordon Brown, honored him for his work on this outstanding film.
Bobby, as I told you some weeks ago, is a Robert Altman-like story of many different characters at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles on June 4, 1968, as Kennedy makes his way there to celebrate winning the California primary.
Estevez's next stop with Bobby is the American Film Institute on Nov. 1, where the movie gets it's Los Angeles premiere. But paparazzi be warned — Charlie Sheen is not coming. "He says he has to memorize his lines for Two and A Half Men," Emilio says, rolling his eyes.
His place in Hollywood history has always been assured with his performance as Otto in Repo Man...
But it's great to see him working again...
