Cal McCaffrey (Russell Crowe) has an off-the-record conversation with Stephen Collins (Ben Affleck).

I’m suprised by the great interaction between Russel Crowe and Ben Affleck on screen: I didn’t expect those two to get along so well, I was thinking there would be some ego competition, but it looks to be quite smooth, and it’s easy to get into the story actually.

Getting Your Story
Stephen Collins (Ben Affleck) is furious at Cal McCaffrey (Russell Crowe).

“Handsome, unflappable U.S. Congressman Stephen Collins (Ben Affleck) is the future of his political party: an honorable appointee who serves as the chairman of a committee overseeing defense spending. All eyes are upon the rising star to be his party’s contender for the upcoming presidential race. Until his research assistant/mistress is brutally murdered and buried secrets come tumbling out.

McCaffrey (Russel Crowe), has the dubious fortune of both an old friendship with Collins and a ruthless editor, Cameron (Helen Mirren), who has assigned him to investigate. As he and partner Della (Rachel McAdams) try to uncover the killer’s identity, McCaffrey steps into a cover-up that threatens to shake the nation’s power structures. And in a town of spin-doctors and wealthy politicos, he will discover one truth: when billions are at stake, no one’s integrity, love or life is ever safe.”

The movie State of Play will be released on April 17, 2009.

    Crowe is an exceptional actor and too much of a professional to let anything get in the way of his performance. Besides, in an interview for the movie, director Kevin Macdonald stated that “The best thing about Russell is that he’s so unvain.”
