Quote:
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."

Quote:
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!

It's been slow so I'm always pleasantly surprised when we reach 300 posts on a thread.

It's important to be kind to others, but not at the expense of yourself. He forgot that a little, lol.

He did. He had to too much trust in those around him he never in a million years would have suspected them of plotting to kill him.

He wouldn't have. I mean Sam played her role well so I think most people wouldn't figure that out. But on the part of the surgeons? He was fully aware that they had a few malpractice suits against them. If I was in his position that would have sent red flags off in my head.

His mother's lack of trust in people was what saved him. Hopefully after he woke up he took that lesson to heart.
