TJ Miller Interview

StarPulse.com has an exclusive interview with TJ Miller, who plays HUD (aka Hudson Platt).

He confirms that he is the "man behind the camera" in the trailer.

You've also got a role in this untitled JJ Abrams project.
Yes it is. I can't talk about it at all with you.

Will audiences get their fair share of T.J. Miller in this?
Audiences are going to get less than any share of T.J. Miller. They're going to get a fraction of what is considered a fair share of me. You will probably see my face for possibly 3 minutes and twenty-five seconds. It's possibly the weirdest situation I've been in. But you'll hear me, and I'll be present in the movie for the entire duration of the film.

Is that information that you are able to reveal?
Yeah, I think so. You can say that it's safe to say that because I'm behind the camera and you're going to hear a lot more of me than you're going to see. And you can get that from the preview. In the preview you don't see me at all, you just hear me. It's going to be crazy. It's going to be everything the JJ Abrams fan wants out of a movie and probably more.

Is it hard to keep a secret this big?
I'm not a guy who runs out and is like, "Look what happened to me!" But I think it's strange because in every other film, they want you to talk about it as much as you can. They just want people to be aware of it, and in this one I just got a call because I spoke to a PA who is on the trailer but isn't on the movie and I talked to her about the film in some bar and it got back to them. They said that this was a huge problem, "You can't go out drinking and talk about the movie." I didn't know she wasn't on it. They're furious about how secretive it is. Nobody can really confirm what is going on in the film. You just can't. It's even almost hard for me to confirm anything. I didn't get the script until after I signed onto the project, and even when I did get the script I wasn't told what was going on. It's a very strange project to work on.

What would happen if somehow it slipped out?
It's JJ Abrams. I'd never be able to work with him again or I would have to be in Mission Impossible: 4. Both of which are disconcerting to me.

  4. Stupid dang movie needs to come out, the insanity is wearying. Though it's always nice to read up on it from sane sites.

    I like this interview bit, it's actually useful trivia - I see unfiction taking this as confirmation of who the cameraman is. (totally never thought of the HUD joke until I read it in the forum)

  5. What a goofy looking guy. I don't get the HUD joke?

  6. HUD = Heads Up Display...heavy on the display in this case

  7. Wow, this guy is a pretty funny comedian. Check out this website he runs http://www.verybadporn.com/home.php
    it's hilarious, there's no actual nudity in it, but its just funny.

  9. John_117,
    Weird that I'd come across your post today after reading about Bungie's use of numerology and Bible references today. While reading this, I made the coorelation to J.J. and his similar obsessions. I wanted to applaud your obvious connection in your interests.

    Everyone,
    It is VERY refreshing to read the interviews by the actors of "Cloverfield." With all of the crack-pot theories that are thrown around every single time there is a new "clue," it is so good to hear some realisic feedback from some of individuals involved in the project.

    J.J. Abrams,
    GIVE US ANOTHER TRAILER, NOW! WE HAVE WAITED LONG ENOUGH!

    -David Nathaniel Musgrave

  10. what if they named the movie cloverfield???

    ReplyDelete
  11. If I was J.J., I would at this point!

    ReplyDelete
  12. The name Cloverfield is growing on me
    literally, I would just like it to be
    called Cloverfield and have some closure on that part of the mystery.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I wanna say thanks to Dennis also,
    you have a site that we can depend on. So many sites are outdated and not maintained. Has anyone considered the
    credibility of jj66 on youtube talking
    about 11-28-07?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Seeing his pic has totally convinced me that it is him (HUD) in the last jamie video. Look at his short curly/wavey hair then watch the video again. Also in the video its not a braclet the mystery person is wearing, its a watch.

    ReplyDelete
  15. ya i was wondering about the credibility of jja66 on google video too...i find it odd that the only video he made was the actual day he signed up, on October 14, and he did not make a big deal of revealing it, so im hoping november 18 will be the day we get our next big thing. BTW, thats only 2 days after Beowulf is released, a movie that many people think that the next preview will be attached to...possibility?

    PS...Fanboys, go to www.whysoserious.com tmrw for Halloween for (hopefully) a look at Aaron Eckhart as Two-Face

    ReplyDelete
  16. ok, excuse me for being stupid,
    but what is tmrw?

    ReplyDelete
  17. What are the odds of us not ever
    seeing the actual monster in
    the movie?

    ReplyDelete
  18. (@Tom)
    Dont say that!! lol
    and tmrw means tomorrow...

    I really hope that you'd get to see the monster...

    but why the hell would he say that he still didnt know what was going on IF HE WAS THE CAMERA MAN!!!

    "It's going to be everything the JJ Abrams fan wants out of a movie and probably more."

    Like never seeing the monster on the island type of crap? (i know smokey or w/e eventually showed itself, right?)

    ReplyDelete
  19. okay, since i am not as tech savvy as some of you, when I go to the trailer link and hover my mouse over the scene,
    I also get a white door next to my cursor arrow. What is that?

    ReplyDelete
  20. i know this is vastly unrelated, but are the three posters found on scoopvendor.com legitimate? i've been keeping up for quite sometime with this and have only just now come across those three.

    ReplyDelete
  21. the name is growing on me as well...and it kinda has an area 51/roswell(incident kinda ring to it)

    I don't think there is any reason to believe that is YouTube account credible, considering when the account was created.

    What trailer are you talking about? Post the link...



    Kyle said... i know this is vastly unrelated, but are the three posters found on scoopvendor.com legitimate?

    If you are talking about these posters from August - they are FAKE.

    The SOL posters are the only official posters, so far.

    ReplyDelete
  23. When I click on "Cloverfied Trailer" on cloverfieldclues.com and then I just move my mouse around on the trailer homepage a white door appears next to my cursor arrow. I am sure it is meaningless, but never seen that before.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Can someone explain the ghost-looking image between the two main buildings in the poster?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Maybe i am grasping, but I can see either a skull formation in the cloud
    above the building on the left, or it is the bad robot logo. Ugh, we gotta get more clues.

  26. tom said... When I click on "Cloverfied Trailer" on cloverfieldclues.com and then I just move my mouse around on the trailer homepage a white door appears next to my cursor arrow. I am sure it is meaningless, but never seen that before.

    When you are on http://www.apple.com/trailers/paramount/11808/...

    Is this what you are seeing?

    This only happens in Internet Explorer. It is the "alternate text" box for the SOL image. It's only supposed to show up when images are turned off, but for some reason in IE, it displays when you hover over an image too.

    However there is no text in the alternate text, just two quotes... so what you are seeing is "".

    That was a really long explanation for... it probably doesn't mean anything :)



    tom said... Can someone explain the ghost-looking image between the two main buildings in the poster?

    I have the poster right here. It just looks like smoke.

    You can check out a hi-res version of the poster here.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yes, the "door" is a computer thing, thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  28. So, has anyone found anything "hidden clues" in the posters? Are we to take the posters for face value?

    ReplyDelete
  29. No. I don't think there are any clues in the poster.

    BTW, the smoke does look a little like a part of a skull, but I don't think it "means" anything.

  30. What about this???

  32. hey man hes rigth about that new trailer i check that same site all the time and they are always gettign the latest and greatest shit so its really no suprise that theyre the ones to crack the new trailer story i always knew they had it in em lol.

  33. Kevin said... Heads up, [new Cloverfield] title, and trailer [coming before Beowulf on Nov 16th ].

    Well, I hope so, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

    There's a perpetual rumor that a new trailer will be revealed before some movie. First it was Stardust, then it was Resident Evil: Extinction, then the Transformers DVD, then I heard Saw 4, now Beowulf.

    All things considered, Beowulf makes the most sense. It's a Paramount movie, and the previz was done by the same company - Third Floor. The timing might be a little early. Thanksgiving would have better, IMO.

    Luckily, I want to see Beowulfanyway, but I'm not going to hold my breath.



    Dust to Dust said... hey man hes rigth about that new trailer i check that same site all the time and they are always gettign the latest and greatest shit

    You crack me up. ComingSoon.net hasn't had a new Cloverfield story in three months. Latest and greatest! LOL

  35. If jja66's video is to be believed, he will reveal everything about 1-18-08...if the trailer comes out with Beowulf, it will probably be something amazing that makes us all say "wtf" and then two days later, he will reveal. JJ Abrams must love his marketing idea, and wants to be close to us and see our reactions, therefore, it is not entirely unbelievable that he would make a youtube video to reveal to us what is going on

  36. Ray of Cork said... Um ... I missed something. Has GoDaddy always been involved with any of the clue-like websites out there? Specifically ... They must be involved with jamieandteddy.com I found this Oops! after typing in "http://www.jamieandteddy.com/video4.mov"

    They are not "involved", but it seems many of the in-game sites have been registered through GoDaddy, if only becasue they are the cheapest.


    Seth said... If jja66's video is to be believed..

    I don't believe it.

    ReplyDelete
  37. omg did you guys here anything that was said ...

    its over the game is done they have it set when its going to be revealed just save yoruself some time and just wait till teh 16th and go see beowulf....i mean do you guys NOT believe that site?

    ReplyDelete
  38. DTD,

    Don't believe anything you read on the internet. Including this.

    ReplyDelete
  39. What is this?
    汝自身を知れ
    It's something about Socrates, I was told. How is it related, and what?

    ReplyDelete
  40. It's Japanese... where did you get it from?

    ReplyDelete
  41. It was just numbers and stuff.
    I saw it posted on another site and pasted into google as this was my first impression to do.
    The "translate page" led to Socrates.
    When I posted it here, it changed the numbers somehow.
    The numbers were 27741 33258 36523 12434 30693 & 12428.
    This doesn't make much sense to me.
    I thought it was odd that your site changed the numbers to Japanese characters.
    What is it?

    btw-there was an & and a # sign before each number and ; separated each unit.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I can explain all this.

    First, tell me where you are getting this from... what site?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Dennis,

    Please keep us posted as much as you can
    on the rumor about trailer coming in front of Beowulf.

    ReplyDelete
  44. okay, how am I supposed to benefit
    from reading the scavenger hunt clues
    on whysoserious.com?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Nevermind....
    I see I am supposed to go and take pictures of this stuff and enter it in,
    yeah right.

  47. hey listen i trust comingsoon.net they.ve never lied about anything. i will put money down saying there is going to be a real trailer in front of beowulf. november 16th go see it. if nothing else just watch the trailer then leave but it will be there i guarantee it.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I am exited about the Cloverfield movie but I think I am finally exhausted about the hype. The campaign they are doing for the Dark Knight is much more entertaining. www.whysoserious.com (the rotting jack-o-lantern) was replaced by an interactive message from the Joker. Later it was complete and when you clicked on it once the image burned to remove a shot from the film and then a second click takes you to www.roryskissofdeath.com for a new task set up by the Joker. Nothing to do with Coverfield but maybe JJ can take some hints from some people that cannot only keep you guessing but do lose most of the excitement they have created by causing bordom in eager fans.

    Just a thought.

  49. Correction: Nothing to do with Coverfield but maybe JJ can take some hints from some people that cannot only keep you guessing but do {NOT} lose most of the excitement they have created by causing bordom in eager fans.

    I should proof-read before posting.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I also found out that the Japanese characters mean:

    "Know Thyself"
    While not related (I don't think), it was pretty spooky, anyway.
