Quote...It's brilliant and mesmerizing in an atmospheric, non-linear sort of way.
QuoteMix together The Big Lebowski and Altman's The Long Goodbye, turn it into a two-and-a-half hour PT Anderson epic and you're getting close to the awesome experience of Inherent Vice. Even Joaquin Phoenix's performance has echoes of 70′s Elliot Gould with a touch of The Dude. But don't get me wrong, this film is its own animal. A drug-fueled detective story filled with great psychedelic music and beautiful, grainy cinematography, it's both hilarious and confounding at times. But Anderson does an incredible job of making the incredibly complex plot both comprehensible and entertaining. Even though he's apparently said he's still tinkering, it felt like a finished film and will definitely go down as one of my favorites of his.

QuoteSince that time and his subsequent break from fighting, Jardine has stayed busy with stunt roles and even landed a sizeable part in the upcoming movie 'Inherent Vice' where he shares the bulk of his screen time opposite Academy Award nominated actor Joaquin Phoenix."I did a couple stunt roles in Transcendence and A Million Ways to Die in the West, but what I'm most proud of, I did a deal with P.T. Anderson and Joaquin Phoenix. P.T. Anderson's the director of directors. He wrote and directed 'Boogie Nights', 'There Will Be Blood', a lot of Oscar winning movies so that was a true honor for me," Jardine said."That's up there with the proudest things I've ever done, along with my best fights and everything. My manager called me and said they're having trouble casting this role, do you want to come down here? I had to fly to LA on my own dime and I walked in on a cold reading, talk about nervous, but I didn't know it was for Paul Thomas Anderson. I walked in and I did this cold reading with some pretty sick dialogue, it was a few pages, and we went over it for about two hours and I went home and about a week later I got a call that I got the role."The reality of that casting process was Jardine landing the role in spite of being a fighter instead of because of it. As it turns out being a professional fighter turned actor was actually a hindrance to his new career because some casting directors tend to pigeon hole fighters in a type cast role, and even then, if they wanted a professional mixed martial artist, why not go for a bigger name like Chuck Liddell or Jon Jones? So it was refreshing when Jardine found out on his first day as part of the cast of 'Inherent Vice' that no one had any idea that he used to be one of the top fighters in the UFC."Until the day I arrived on set, they had no idea I was a fighter. It was just because of the look and being able to do the look," Jardine revealed.The filming for the movie was a real experience for Jardine, who had been a part of some pretty serious projects previously, but mostly as a stunt actor and not in speaking roles. This time he had a script, actual lines, and even some back and forth with the star of the movie."All my action was with Joaquin, such a great guy. Super humble, super sweet, just a great guy," Jardine said. "I could tell you stories. Like we were at lunch and he was like there's this one part in the book where this happens and he'd say 'go read this and see what you think' and next thing you know I'd be over in my trailer and they'd bring me a bunch of lines from that part of the book. It was crazy."
