October 22, 2008 - Gallery Update - Some people only dream of being Peter Pan. Hayden got to do the whole flying, leaping, jumping and dancing on wires recently for a couple of days of filming on a Lacoste commercial shoot in downtown Los Angeles. The French commercial for Lacoste fragrance was reported to be a take on Hayden's 2008 released movie Jumper. The television spot will air later this year....in France. I don't know if we'll see it here in the US.
No stranger to wire work since his Star Wars and Jumper days, Hayden was pretty animated hanging from wires and suspended high above the street with the camera catching expressions of every kind.
Hayden suspended from wires, fun to see. Hayden's facial expressions, priceless.

October 2, 2008 - Bone Deep Cast Dodges Bullets - MTV reported this week that Hayden and other cast members filmed an elaborately choreographed shoot out scene that will appear at the end of the movie and they have the video clip of the scene on their site. Paul Walker let slip on some of the details of the scene and now Russians are included in the story of a young hip and fly team of bank robbers who are skilled at high stakes heists. A movie page for Bone Deep has been added to MTV movie news and will be updated with video, photos and news as they become available.
There is some speculation about whether you can see Hayden at all in the brief video clip. You can view the clip and I've added a screen cap so you can try to pick out Hayden for yourself......if he's there at all.
