VIDEO: Hayden Christensen on the air "Central TV" - [Google Translate]" Actor Hayden Christensen who starred in the "Star Wars" saga will forever be inscribed in the history of cinema. After all, he played two legendary characters - Anakin Skywalker and Darth Vader."
"Christensen on the air at "Central TV" told of the sacrifices to play the most controversial characters of "Star Wars". The actor had to get better at almost 11 pounds - for the costume of Darth Vader, he just "drowned". Even Darth Vader's artificial muscles did not help. In addition, the costume makers had not thought about natural human needs - like going to the bathroom."
"Finally in the studio, "Central TV" Hayden gave a master class in exercises with the Jedi sword."

Source: Kinopoisk.ru and other articles - We also have a few more details about the true life drama and how it will be adapted for the screen this time around. American Heist, about the St. Louis Bank Robbery of 1953, tells the story of two brothers involved in a life of crime. The older brother played by Adrien Brody has already involved his younger brother played by Hayden in a past crime for which they both spent time in prison. As Hayden's character has just been released from prison and can not find work, his brother, also out of jail, tries to pull him in for another heist.
Meanwhile, it was announced last week that Jordana Brewster will also co-star in the film but it was not known what her role would be until now. She will play Hayden's ex-girlfriend. They have a past relationship and now that Hayden's character is out of jail, he wants to start again. She works for the police. There is not exactly a romance between them but she sympathizes with Hayden's character.
