Ewan McGregor compares TV to movies

Star Wars actor Ewan McGregor has revealed how he loved filming the new HBO pilot The Corrections and has compared it to his recent movie work. Ewan claims that the movie industry has struggled to create many original movies in recent years.

McGregor explained, "We shot the pilot in 15 days [and] I enjoyed it very much. If it goes, we'll go back in June and shoot the series for four months in New York. I did have one week of [saying] 'Oh my God, it's TV... should I do TV?' [But] after I went over to meet the director and Jonathan Franzen and Scott Rudin, the producer, I was totally in. I just think it's a quality piece of work.”
 
He added, "Having the opportunity to play a character at that length will be really interesting. Over four years... I'll be exploring this guy Chip in that story - it'll be great." Ewan then went on to reveal how filming movies differs to that of filming television.
 
He continued, "Films about people in real situations - it's the [genre] that's taking the biggest kicking after the financial crisis. It just seems in the last three or four years that it's harder to find that kind of drama. The big-budget films are about superheroes or fairytales or [they're] kids' films - branding that we already know. I'm always interested in original stuff."
