Whenever I possibly can blow smoke in someone’s face I’m doing it!” It’s a mixture of tones that’s indicative of the overall production, Sarandon said, insisting that fans who only know Jackson for “Lord of the Rings” and “King Kong” are going to be “surprised.” Sarandon The ‘Comic Relief’ For ‘Lovely Bones’?Posted in Peter Jackson, PJ's Other Films on November 8, 2007 by xoanon
