Hayden plays the unlucky patient who wakes up while the surgeons are performing heart surgery. Terrence is his doctor and best friend, and Jessica is his loving wife, who is forced to struggle with her own demons as a terrifying drama unfolds around the couple.

"She goes through loving someone who she knows she can't love forever, because there's an expiration date on someone with a weak heart," explains Jessica.

"That was the biggest challenge," Hayden tells ET about performing his unique task. "To get myself into some Zen-like space where I could just be still for an hour-and-a-half on end ... I sing songs in my head, recount old memories, that sort of thing."

"You see, for the other actors, we think Hayden got the cushy job," interjects Terrence, "because half the movie he gets to sleep on the table. You would love to go to work and just lay there with your eyes closed."

MM Tell me about your role in Awake.

HC It's about this young well-to-do guy who needs a heart transplant. A heart becomes available, and I go into the operation, where I experience anesthetic awareness, which has got to be one of the most terrifying things imaginable. I talked to people who had it: you lie on this operating table in varying degrees of consciousness totally unable to do anything about it. Some people will experience little things, others will feel every cut and incision. The film gets more ****ed-up from there. It will be a different thriller. What Jaws did to being in the water, this will do to the operating room.

MM What was it like working with Terence Howard?

HC He's the real deal and is going to become one of the defining actors of his generation. He plays the doctor. He and I became chess-obsessed. It was something we did because we both like chess and we're very competitive, but it was also a tool for our work. It kept us interacting and playing off each other. I also did that with Peter Sarsgaard in Shattered Glass. A bit of chess and a lot of Ping-Pong.
The trailer!

Watch it here!

It was on the same page. Or at least it would be if you guys had your pages set to 25 posts per page like it used to be before one of the software updates where they changed the default number of ppp.
