The Observer’s Craig McLean takes the measure of “the biggest Brit in Hollywood” and apparently it’s not Sacha Baron Cohen. “I’m a film producer. How do you define a film producer? Wow… my job is to find screenplays, unclejackie_58.jpgbooks, articles, and develop those into shooting scripts. Hire the actors, the director – sometimes even finance the movies,” Graham King says. “He’s involved all the way through overseeing the day-to-day running of the shoot of the film, overseeing the post-production, the release of the movie, the marketing campaigns, trailers. ‘And trying to get the talent to do publicity, which is never easy. So really my job is, from start to finish – everything.’ … Scorsese says that King is different from other producers, insofar as his presence during filming is less about keeping a fidgety, money man’s eye on budgets and schedules. ‘I find him a comforting figure on the set,’ says the director. ‘Unlike some people in the past, who were alarming.'” [Much more at the link, including this promise: “‘I would love to make a movie that Marty would star in. He’s been in movies, and he did the voice in Shark Tale. But I think he’s just a personality all of his own. When you travel with him he gets so much recognition everywhere he goes. He’s bigger than the movie stars sometimes!’] [source]
