Duvall sucks! He may be an awesome actor, but he sucks now!

Robert Duvall slams Canadian actors
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Veteran actor Robert Duvall is badmouthing Canadian actors.
Last summer, Duvall spent 13 weeks in the Calgary area filming the western Open Range with Kevin Costner and Annette Bening.
Duvall, 71, was in Washington for a press junket and for yesterday’s world premier of Ted Turner’s epic Civil War drama Gods and Generals, which opens Feb. 21.
“I prefer not to work in Canada. I prefer to work in my own country. There are better actors down here. That’s why they have to import so many actors for their Canadian productions,” said Duvall.
A man of his word, Duvall says he insisted Secondhand Lions, the film he made with Michael Caine shortly after Open Range, be shot in Texas.
“I said I wasn’t interested in shooting it in Canada. It was a Texas story and had to be shot in Texas.”
His comments puzzled the Calgary film community.
Local actress Pat Benedict, who worked for 10 days on Open Range in scenes with Costner and Duvall, says “it was never apparent by (Duvall’s) demeanour that he was displeased with the level of acting by Calgary actors.
“He seemed to be having a great time. He was very funny and very friendly. He ate with the crew and with the supporting actors, which is not always the case with visiting stars.”
Calgary-based actor Ran-dy Birch, who is also president of the local chapter of the national union ACTRA, says Costner “was very complimentary about my work in a scene I did with Mr. Duvall and Michael Jeter.
“At the end of the day, he made a point of telling me how pleased he was, and I heard he did the same for so many of the local actors no matter how small their roles.”
Jackie Lind, who did Canadian casting for Open Range through her company Jackie Lind Casting Ltd., insists Duvall’s sentiments were not shared by Costner, who directed and stars in the film.
“At the wrap party, Kevin said he was impressed not just with the calibre of talent in Canada, but in particular the talent pool in Calgary.”
Duvall may not have been impressed with Canadian actors, but he had high praise for the Calgary area.
“I can’t say I’ve seen every mountain range in the world but those Rocky Mountains are the most spectacular I’ve ever seen.”
