Fun, guns and a soulful song

Fun, guns and a soulful song{nl}{nl}By Sarrah Le Marquand{nl}Daily Telepgrah{nl}February 08, 2007 12:48pm{nl}{nl}THE Wilson Phillips girl-power ballad Hold On makes an unlikely soundtrack for the ultra-violent crime caper Smokin’ Aces, yet it was at the director’s request that Ryan Reynolds repeatedly sung the soulful tune during the shoot. Of course the cameras weren’t actually rolling during the performances – a good thing since Reynolds admits he put a decidedly non-G-rated spin on the song.{nl}{nl}Impromptu song and dance numbers were a regular occurrence on the set of Smokin’ Aces, all at the behest of writer-director Joe Carnahan, who entertained his cast and crew by playing DJ between scenes. “It’s the first set I’ve ever been on where people who weren’t working on a particular day would just come by to watch and see what’s happening,” Reynolds says.{nl}{nl}”It was a pretty lively cast and for such a diverse group of people it was a surprisingly cordial and cohesive unit.”{nl}{nl}The group included Reynolds, Ben Affleck, Andy Garcia, Jeremy Piven, Jason Bateman, Ray Liotta and muso-turned-fledgling-actor Alicia Keys. Not to mention local boy Joel Edgerton, who dons a thick accent and tracksuit to play a less-than-bright bodyguard.
