Scott Pilgrimactor Mark Webber Gets Hairy Play Stephen Stills
The grooming habits of a slacker 20-something rocker can take years to perfect, but actor Mark Webber has been working overtime to be prepared for whatever director Edgar Wright and company have in store for him when he arrives in Toronto next weekend. The 'Broken Flowers' and 'Whiteboyz' star is priming himself to be sculpted into Stephen Stills, lead singer of the band Sex Bob-omb in 'Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.'
'I'm giving them a nice canvas to work with,' the actor told MTV News. Since he doesn't know exactly what the makeup department will want to do with him, he figures it's better to overgrow rather than over-cut. 'I've got my sideburns going,' he said. 'I'm growing my hair really long. I'm a shaggy guy right now so that they can cut the hair just like Stephen Stills.'
Webber recently returned to Toronto after premiering his new film 'Explicit Ills' in New York. Wright and 'Scott Pilgrim' creator Bryan Lee O'Malley were probably waiting for him when got there, along with the rest of the cast, including Michael Cera , Chris Evans , Mary Elizabeth Winstead , and Brandon Routh .
'Edgar's done an amazing job with the cast on this film,' Webber commented. Just how well they rock together on-stage remains to be seen -- but from what we've seen thus far, there's a lot to like about the much-anticipated adaptation.
