Ewan McGregor in GQ Japan
GQ Japan's December 2008 issue grooms actor Ewan McGregor as “The Detective,” a camera-wielding sleuth with a strong predisposition for tailored suits, fedoras, and spying. Squinting with both hands on his camera, McGregor hits the mark by channeling the rabid intensity of a zealous paparazzo.
In his upcoming film, The Men Who Stare at Goats (a Grant Heslov-directed comedy based on Jon Ronson's book of the same title), the 37-year-old actor is Bob Wilton, a foolhardy reporter who accidentally finds himself pursuing the scoop of his life: a clandestine US military unit who can make themselves invisible at will, pass through walls, and slay goats just by looking at them. Say what?
More jaw-dropping is the fact that Ronson's book is categorized as non-fiction.
Now that's a stunner.
