I’ve updated a interview video of Clive doing an one on one interview with Access Hollywood promoting ‘The International‘.

Here’s a good example of why user-generated web “news” and “facts” still falls under the category, “glorified rumors.”
I was chatting up Clive Owen Sat. afternoon about the new thriller The International, about an Interpol agent (Owen) who has become obsessed with exposing and bringing down a corrupt, terrorist-and-mob-tied multi-national bank, a bank so powerful it is beyond governments, beyond the law.
“He’s been so obsessed that he’s become very paranoid,” Owen says. “VERY paranoid. Something like an institution that can change the ‘facts’ to fit its needs, scary.”
The fellow’s dark enough that he could have turned into a villain, something Owen hasn’t played yet.
“Ahh,” but I say, there’s always a first time. What’s this I hear about you playing Duke Skeletor in Journey of Death.
There’s a pause, then a “What? Who’s that?” And a “Somebody else mentioned that.”
He starts cackling and I cackle, knowing where this is going.Yeah, I found that on the Wikipedia quick-bio I have of him, part of my research into Owen.
“I’ve never HEARD of that movie before today,” he says.
Really? Says here you start shooting tomorrow.
In Sante Fe and Jornada del Muerto…
“Where the hell’s THAT?”
No idea. But hey, Clive, guy, READ it on the NET. Must be true.
“Ok, now I’m not playing paranoid. I AM getting paranoid!”

In “The International,” Clive Owen plays a desperate Interpol agent who spends his every waking moment trying to shut down a secretive international bank reaching its fingers into world politics – and he doesn’t have time for a martini break. But does that make the actor, who was once floated as a possible 007, the anti-Bond?
Not quite, Clive told Access Hollywood at the film’s junket in Beverly Hills on Thursday – but his character is certainly a different kind of action hero.
“The one thing for me that was very important – there was no vanity, there’s no time for self-affection,” he said. “It’s not typical for a lead actor. There’s no time to be thinking about [that]… he’s so obsessed.” [Read more…] about Clive Owen’s ‘International’ Exploits
An exclusive clip of Clive on the ‘The International‘ has been released on MTV.com. Check it out! Simply can’t wait for the movie!
With billion dollar banks failing left and right, the timing sadly feels right for the upcoming espionage flick “The International.” In the film, Interpol cop Clive Owen teams with NYC District Attorney Naomi Watts to take down a multinational bank that’s into some very unbank-like behavior.
You’ll have to wait until February 13 to see if they’re successful, but you can get a taste of the action in the exclusive clip below.
I’ve uploaded new candids photos of Clive Owen spotted leaving Barney’s New York in Beverly Hills, California on January 28, 2009.
