Simply Dane DeHaan
Life at Berlinale 2015
January 17, 2015
Berlinale Special is part of the official programme and presents recent works by contemporary filmmakers, biopics of renowned personalities as well as extraordinary formats. With many prominent guests expected to attend, gala screenings will be held at the Friedrichstadt-Palast, the Zoo Palast and the Kino International.
The presentations at the Haus der Berliner Festspiele will again include moderated discussions with the filmmakers after the screenings.
Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga, Cosmopolis) and Dane DeHaan (Kill Your Darlings, Lawless, The Place Beyond The Pines) will star as renowned Magnum photographer Dennis Stock and Hollywood legend James Dean in Anton Corbijn’s (Control) next feature film ‘Life’. Stock was 26, old before his time and already tied down to family life. Into his buttoned-down world came fledgling star James Dean, a free spirit who would change popular culture from suits to jeans and from matinee idols to teenage heartthrobs. The assignment, which took the pair on a road trip around the US, would change Stock’s life and provide the world with some of the most iconic images of the age.

Dane in Vogue

The advantage of a face magnetic and indecipherable as his, with those two slots of ice slightly imborsite (despite his young age, 29 years in February), more eloquent than a thousand words, a little ‘to Brad Pitt (without resorting to Paul Newman) , a contemporary-stylish, effortlessly cool, and a vocation chameleon on the set, it can be to become the actor (among rookies) most disputed of the moment to deliver Hollywood.E seeing the title of “new DiCaprio”: the resemblance is indeed impressive (see the young Leo’s Eating Gilbert Grape). Happy about this? Admiration for his colleague is so great, but Dane DeHaan looks well beyond.
The disadvantage – if it can be defined – can instead be to receive proposals to interpret particular characters from its ambiguous and murky, when not to bad.
A child prodigy, after graduating from North Carolina School of the Arts, he moved to New York where he made his debut on Broadway with success – even if claims not considered good enough for the theater – earning an Obie Award for his portrayal of lone student Evan Shelmerdine the aliens in the production of Annie Baker. Then it was a gay teenager in conflict with parents in the HBO series In Treatment, which marked his debut on TV; bashful schoolboy victim of bullying and domestic violence that suddenly has super powers, she takes it in the science fiction film Chronicle; clandestine distiller of whiskey (a so-called “moonshiner”) opposite Shia LaBeouf in dramatic Lawless director John Hillcoat and with a screenplay by Nick Cave. And yet: intense and moving into the role of Jason, the son of the good bad Ryan Gosling in the film by Derek Cianfrance The place beyond the pines (“Like a Thunder”); introverted and damned, in balance between empathy and anger submerged in Kill your darlings-Young Rebels alongside Daniel Radcliffe (in the role of Allen Ginsberg); in the role of villain Green Goblin in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but also brilliant in some ways in the black comedy Life after Beth.
“I choose the roles that I propose based on the potential that I see growing interpreting them, I rate them as opportunities to improve in the craft of acting. The more the task seems impossible to me more in the end I am convinced you want to do. I like challenges, repeating the same character boring, “says the actor originally from Pennsylvania.
Films to watch out for in 2015
January 6, 2015
Ex-photographer and Control helmer Anton Corbijn seems like the perfect person to direct Life. That’s basically because it’s based on the real-life bromance between Life magazine photographer Dennis Stock and icon of cool James Dean. Robert Pattinson plays Stock, Dane DeHaan is James Dean, and they head up a cast that includes Ben Kingsley as tough-talking studio head Jack Warner, and Joel Edgerton as picture editor/photography pioneer John G Morris. Expect this one to clean up when awards season comes around in 2016.

Fifteen Years – Marcie Lucas
December 1, 2014
Marcie Lucas, Fifteen years as a celebrity blogger
Hi, my name is Marcie Lucas owner of the Simply line: Simply Daniel Radcliffe, Simply Dane DeHaan, Simply Elijah Wood, Simply Leonardo DiCaprio, Simply James McAvoy and Simply Mitchell Kummen. Years back you probably wouldn’t have known who I was. My first website was based on James Cameron’s Titanic back in 1999. I was lousy at websites I didn’t know what html was or php and I couldn’t even do a graphic. I had to use free graphics from other websites. When people started complaining that I was claiming something that wasn’t mine. I said to hell with it. I am gonna learn on my own. It was hard, as I didn’t know anything at all. My first graphics were horrible. That’s the truth.
My boyfriend, Anthony Lucas who is now my husband taught me so much, made me learn the hard way to learn html code through Netscape composer. He got frustrated and got mad at me several times. Yes, I can be stubborn. But after that long time of trying. I’ve finally began to understand. From there I went off on my own and I can’t believe I’ve done it for so long, what started as a side hobby began to be much more. The realness of it hit me, when I received an email from Steven Rea, Film critic for the Philadelphia Inquirer . I remember the call that morning, hearing everything at the newspaper in the background it was exciting for me to be interviewed on Leonardo DiCaprio’s coffee venture. But things did not stop there. Graham Norton, a television show in the UK emailed me one morning. I was dead tired, stood up all night and replied. The email had been blank so contacting whomever it was as I did, I waited. They mentioned that they wanted to use Simply Daniel Radcliffe for their show to show to Dan. I was saying to myself, “Sure why not.” I didn’t think anything of it and I didn’t know what they were going to use until after. I was blushing when their recording was aired. I was like, “Oh no, not my writing. Daniel was never meant to see that.” But I got to see the reaction on Dan’s face. God to think of what he might think of me personally. I don’t even wanna know. And to think of all the autographs he’s done for me without never knowing who I was. He’s special to me for many reasons. He’s helped me through my darkest times.
I’ve gotten lucky to promote films for my favorite actors and all the companies and promoters out there for giving me a chance to do this for them is a wonderful privilege. I’ve worked very hard sometimes not eating, staying up all hours of the night and sometimes not sleeping at all with being a full-time mom to three children. You can see all of my work was not in vain. People might think I got it easy, that’s not the case because ten years ago I didn’t have any of this. I tried so hard. But it was the fans who made me a better person, the fans at Simply Daniel Radcliffe for caring about me. Who since the incident in 2012 have been a pleasure to know. Suicide for me has been with me since I was fifteen. I think about it all the time even now. But something changed after the fans showed me I am more than a website. The people at the Trevor Project whom I wanna thank for being so kind. I would say more, but its personal so I’ll end it on that.
I’ve learned so much since 1999. The first time I worked on a new actor, Dane DeHaan. I liked his personality and his acting. While working on him I started a process. A process I now do for all actors I work on. I’m not telling you what my process is, but it gives me firsthand knowledge of who they are and why they chose to become an actor.
The newest site I’ve worked on is Mitchell Kummen. Horns for me is special not just cause of Daniel Radcliffe, but because of Joe Hill. I’ve been a fan of his father, Stephen King for so long. It gave me the love of horror movies and to be a writer. Yes I love writing, Dane DeHaan acting out my writing on Comedy Central was a total laugh. I can’t begin to tell you how thrilled I was I was like, “Oh no not again.” But he did good playing the Dane I pictured in my writing. Thank you, Dane for having the courage to pull off my crazy writing.
Mitchell Kummen was a new start for me, the youngest actor I ever worked on was Daniel Radcliffe during Potter. Since then no one else that young has been in my life. For those of you that don’t know Mitchell, he’s a wonderful young actor in Horns as the young Ig Perrish. Mitchell was a project I took up because he impressed me with his acting in Horns. I don’t do websites just for anyone. I have to connect with an actor to do a website in the first place. He reminded me a lot about my own children. My daughter who is his age and my son. He needed to be known to people. That’s what I felt in my heart. He will probably be the last I ever do and I wish the best for him. He has talent, I see it. Just like I did with Dane DeHaan. And that’s why I built my websites, the men who gave their talent for us to see and made me who I become. A devoted fan, graphic designer, and web designer. A person who didn’t know a thing and learned so much.
Thank you to all the people out there who have followed me, gave their support and believed I could do this. It’s been a pleasure. Thank you. Today, I celebrate fifteen years!

New Gallery Layout
November 27, 2014
Added a new gallery layout though I had done it. I was kinda all over the place and may have to adjust it, but I will get to that after Thanksgiving.
I wanna apologize for the lack of updates, I’ve been really busy lately with family, promo for Simply Daniel Radcliffe and generally life itself. But I recently did a book review for Simply Daniel Radcliffe on a book called Daniel Radcliffe: The Biography it isn’t yet available to the USA till January 2015, but thanks to the publishing company John Blake. I sent a copy. It was published this November and the reason I am mentioning it here is cause it mentions Dane and Anna in it and all the information about Kill Your Darlings. Some of you that are followers of SDR, know what I am talking about.
So if your interested and would like to read my review you can read it here.
