Paul Eenhoorn Surfaces in Iceland!

Editor’s Note:  I’ll bet none of you who have been wondering what Paul Eenhoorn is up to, guessed that he might be shooting a new movie in Iceland!  He’s ripping it up onscreen as one of a pair of old duffers out to celebrate a friendship in a quite out of the way place.  Look for it at Sundance!

Land Ho!’ Poster Premiere: This Is the Sundance Movie You Definitely Want to Party With

By  Jan 13, 2014

Two ex-brothers-in-law (This Is Martin Bonner’s Paul Eenhoorn and Eastbound & Down’s Earl Lynn Nelson) set off on an Iceland vacation to reclaim their youth; dipping their toes in the Reykjavik nightclub scene, visiting trendy spas, dining at daring restaurants and communing at rugged campsites. What starts as a raucous adventure becomes a journey of self-discovery.

Land Ho! is the latest producing project from lyrical indie-film favorite David Gordon Green, directed by Martha Stephens (Pilgrim SongPassenger Pigeons) and Aaron Katz (Cold WeatherQuiet City). The endearing tale is part 1980s raucous road comedy, part sensitive and charming portrait of aging à la an edgier Strangers in Good Company for men. Interestingly enough, Nelson, who wasn’t formally trained as an actor, plays a brazen surgeon in the film. He’s also a practicing surgeon in his offscreen life as well. Nelson’s improvisational, naturalistic style caught the eye of Green when he appeared in Stephens’ Passenger Pigeons.

We have the poster premiere for Land Ho!, which teases a bit of that lovely Icelandic landscape and the refreshingly genuine and fun bond Eenhoorn and Nelson share throughout the film. The witty work will make its debut at this year’s Sundance Film Festival on January 19.

The Sundance Springboard: Indiewire Picks 10 Actors to Watch in Park City

Paul Eenhoorn (“This Is Martin Bonner”)

Why You May Know Him: Seattle based Australian actor Paul Eenhoorn has been making a name for himself in his city’s filmmaking industry for the better part of the past decade, after trying to make a break for it in his native country. He’s likely best known for playing the villain, Mr. Daniels, in the family comedy “Max Rules” which was voted by audiences as the top U.S. film at the 2004 Seattle International Film Festival. Eenhoorn may also be recognised by video gamers for modelling as the face for “Half-Life 2″‘s Arne Magnusson.

What Sundance Could Mean For Him: A whole lot. As the oldest actor on this list, Eenhoorn may very well be the middle-aged breakout of this year’s festival thanks to his grounded turn in the affecting indie, “This Is Martin Bonner.” In the drama, he plays the titular character; a man who leaves his old life behind and relocates to Reno, where he finds work helping released prisoners transition to life on the outside, while trying his hand at speed dating and passing time as a soccer referee on weekends.

What’s Next: Eenhoorn told Indiewire that he recently got cast in “The Dead Men,” a “small indie film that’s going to shoot out in the desert in California, about a journalist who gets taken hostage in Iraq.”

…and Poet

The Bloke.
I’m not a good bet he said, I’ve been in the bush too long, too self reliant too independent,
I wouldn’t know what to do with a woman’s love.
Don’t get me wrong, I love you, but I think you’d be better suited to city bloke,
I’m from the bush you’re from the city, I’m all dust and hinterland, you’re pale and smell of roses, I love the earth, you love shopping. Our cultures are as alien to each other as the ocean is to the land.

I’m a simple bloke and you’re, well, you’re more than that.
I don’t even know how we met, how you did that, walked into me and took my heart.

I have nothing that you could value apart from my love, and I know that doesn’t work in the city. If there was some way I could change myself I would probably do it even though I know I wouldn’t be happy having done it, if it meant I could wake with you next to me.

The thing is, I kind of function okay on my own. I have no expectations to live up to.
If I spend my last dollar at the pub, I have no one to blame but myself, I can take my own blame but I couldn’t take yours.

So just know this. There is a heart out here in the outback that will always love you, always know you, and every time I have to chase down the herd, or break a brumby, my heart will beat with the same strength that it did when we made love.
You made me know I was a man; you let me know what love is.

Setting of the Scene

“Room 13 is in final edit. All cast and crew have been paid and the final cut is now a month away. From there it will go to a local studio for credit roll and graphics. It should hit festivals early next year. Thanks for you patience and support friends. It has been a tough road back.. But I did discover who my friends were. Film at 11…”  – Paul Eenhoorn

Editor’s Note:  Our hero Paul is beginning to pixilate…

“I have been feeling uneasy lately… It seems that as I get closer to my goals I feel more isolated.. I have some really good stuff in the can and deals on two of the four shot and another to shoot in December. I am a phone call kind of guy…

, I love voices. I can tell how life is by voices but i don’t hear any these days. Are we all so busy? Is a text really a human communication? My state of mind reminds me of a quote from Mandela I think and used in Coach Carter.

“Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others”

I have played small to fit in and all it did was make me sick.. still, maybe comfort zones are where we all belong…. but not me…”  – Paul Eenhoorn

Editor:  Paul notes, “… it’s a good script and it all came from this one monologue which I wrote and realized it was a character that wanted to be….”

Into the Woods

Paul Eenhoorn Scriptwriter

There it is.. The death sentence, the guillotine about to cut your balls off. Married Ha! She will not leave her husband. Especially if he makes a shitload of money, love will lose to money every time. So tell me she’s dirt poor!
Jess says nothing.
You sorry son of a bitch. My Theory is, some of us, are meant to love, and we keep loving, but it’s not enough, and I don’…t mean the room mate kind of marriage love, I mean deep abiding heart destroying love, and we think that should be enough. But it’s never enough. We have to get a job, buy a house, a car, medical insurance.. why can’t we just love? You see I think that shit kills love. Marriage kills love.. We keep falling in love you and I, deeper and deeper each time until we meet “The One”. The Big Kahuna, and when that happens we’re gone, because there is no coming back from that one. You see each time we fall into a woman we leave a piece of our heart there, it’s like you cant get it back, and when you meet “Her”, instead of running, which is what any sane person would do, we just walk towards her like a zombie and say, “Rip what’s left of my Heart out Baby oh Yeah, I love the pain”. I have met her, I have loved her and I have died for her. So what I’m saying Jess is that you really.. you haven’t loved enough..Yet! Because you’re still alive!

Editor’s Note:  Paul Eenhoorn, our in-house actor, has been busy lately.

The Delicate Art of Bird Watching

“Pretty much wrapped on The Delicate Art last night after 10 days of late night early morning shoots. The final scene was eight pages and I had a lot of trouble with dialogue. I think I had what could only be called a brain fart. I was awa… ke but I think the rest of me was fast asleep. Fatigue took its toll. For the first time for a long time I actually looked at footage we shot the night before, and for the first time in a long time I didn’t cringe at the sight of me on the screen. I think that means the portents for this film may be good. Or, I have grown up and accepted that that’s the way I look. Or possibly both. There was a lot of talent on this film and collectively they bowled me over.”  – Paul Eenhoorn

Editor:  If you’re an agent, better duck!  Paul’s on the loose…

…And While I’m at It”


“I am looking for an Agent. I am looking for an agent who has as much belief in my talent as I do. I am looking for an agent that will never send me on cattle calls. I am looking for an agent that values the fact that they represent me. I am looking for an agent that will put up with my bullshit because I am at that stage where I have had enough of theirs and every one else’s. I am looking for an a…gent that knows that I am not a 50 to 60 year old background possibility for whatever corporate client is looking. I am looking for an agent that understands that a bit part on Grimm or Leverage just isn’t going to cut it for me! I need an agent that knows the difference between narcissism and an absolute belief in self without ego! I need an agent that knows that the future is full of riches associated with my talent. I am Paul Eenhoorn, I am an Actor and I am fucking good at it. Just ask my friends who shape the future of film in this town.”  – Paul Eenhoorn
