Ellen January 19, 2015 Preview
Ellen has a great episode January 19, 2015, talking to Jennifer Aniston about her new movie Cake and how she was snubbed at the Oscars and breakout start Miyavi about his role in the film Unbroken. Check it out below!
Ellen: Jennifer Aniston Cake
Jennifer Aniston has been getting a lot of buzz for her performance in Cake, where she plays a woman battling substance abuse, chronic pain, and dealing with the death of a friend. The role is raw and emotional and it earned Jennifer Aniston a Golden Globe nomination. Everyone thought it was a given for Jennifer Aniston to be nominated for an Oscar, but she was snubbed. Why? I’m not sure, but it’s possible Ellen and Jennifer will discuss it.
Jennifer Aniston will talk about what the movie is about and what she did to prepare for the role on Ellen on January 19, 2015. This is a movie that is a huge departure for Jennifer Aniston in terms of what kind of role it is. For example, although this role is earning her all kinds of buzz and there’s a lot of outrage over her Oscar snub, this is the same year in which she starred in the lowbrow comedy, Horrible Bosses 2. So it’s a really interesting choice for Jennifer Aniston to make and I’m excited to see what she does!
Ellen: Miyavi Unbroken
Miyavi is a Japanese pop star and he’ll be performing one of his hit songs on Ellen. Plus, speaking of Oscar snubs, he’s starring in the new film Unbroken, the World War II drama that’s based on a real life story. The movie was thought sure to give an Oscar nod to its director, actress Angelina Jolie, but she was left out of the category.
Miyavi’s character in the film is based on a real life person. He plays the ruthless supervisor of a Japanese interment camp who does a lot of cruel things to his prisoners.
Miyavi will talk about his role and how he prepared for it, as well as his music career.
Tune into Ellen on January 17, 2015, for all of this and so much more!
