Eric Bana looks serious, dorky, hot at NYC screening: would you hit it?

Here are some lovely new photos of my love Eric Bana at last night’s NYC screening of his new film, Closed Circuit. Eric has been in New York for several days now – we had casual photos of him over the weekend too. But Eric can wear a suit! He looks sort of dorky, but still really hot. Eric has beautiful curly hair too, like Benedict Cumberbatch. I have hair envy! I’m also including some photos of Eric’s costars, Julia Stiles (she plays a NYT reporter in the film) and Rebecca Hall (she plays a lawyer and Bana’s lover).

While in NYC, Bana has been doing some somewhat unconventional movie promotion, probably because Closed Circuit is such a politically charged (and politically relevant) film about espionage, government conspiracies, privacy and unintended “leaks”. On yesterday’s NOW with Alex Wagner (on MSNBC), Bana and the director of Closed Circuit were interviewed right after Alex did a segment about Edward Snowden, The Guardian and Glenn Greenwald. Here’s the video:

I love that she name-checked Munich! Munich deserves more love. It barely got any attention when it was first released, but over the years, it’s become something of a must-watch modern classic, and it really is one of Steven Spielberg’s finest and most nuanced films. And Bana is magnificent in it.

Bana also sat down for a low-key ABC interview too:

I kind of wish Bana was a little bit more controversial. I mean, I don’t want him to go “full Miley” and start sticking out his lizard tongue and twerking up a storm (although that would be amazing), but I just want him to be able to do an interesting and notable soundbyte.

And no, I have no idea what Rebecca and Julia are wearing. Both of those dresses are terrible.

    Yes, to Munich and back.

    “Here are some lovely new photos of my love Eric Bana…”

    Um no, Kaiser. He’s MY love.
    You have Fassbender, kindly leave Bana all to me.

  3. Post-Its says:

    Love Eric Bana. And can someone give Rebecca a hair brush? And a stylist? Because she looks awful.

  4. Amelia says:

    I’d whisk him away to my deserted island and have my wicked way with him for the rest of my days.

  5. brin says:

    Yes…loved him in “Munich” and lusted him in “Troy”.

  6. Jo says:

    I would hit it as hard today as I hit it yesterday. Keep the Bana pics coming! I would cut off my left big toe to trade places with his wife for a few days.

  7. lenje says:

    Munich is one of the movies that I own on DVD because I know I will watch it from time to time. Agree, it’s becoming a classic.

    I’m glad to see Julia Stiles, despite her dress. Underrated actress. And she’s got such a lovely speaking voice.

  8. blue marie says:

    yeah, I’d hit it.. what’s up with Julia though, her face is two-toned.

  9. Jennifer12 says:

    I find him sexy, but less so than Matt Damon or Ewan MacGregor.

  10. epiphany says:

    I never got an answer from T.fanty yesterday regarding Bana and the sleaze rumors. What, specifically, do you know? I can’t even find a blind that sounds like it might be him. Spill, please!

  11. DreamyK says:

    Eric just wants to look deeply into your soul and spout poetry while Fassie is a dirty, dirty boy.

    OMG..can you imagine being the frosting in that double layer cake?

  12. LAK says:

    Wow Julia styles looks good. Dodgy dress which should be burned, but everything else is good.

  13. allons-y alonso says:

    I will forever love Bana!
    The Castle is one of my favourite Australian films ever and his take on ‘A Current Affair’s’ Ray Martin in Full Frontal is dynamite. XD

  14. Becks says:

    Yes I would hit it forever! Loooove him!!!

  15. Sixer says:

    I would not, no. And yet I would hit Viggo Mortensen, and I think they look rather alike.

  16. Sara says:

    Why do I not like Julia Styles as an actress?

  17. Stubbylove says:

    Bana is so lovely – but gotta say I love him so much more with facial hair – he was beyond gorgeous in Troy – kicked ‘ol boy Pitt’s ass in that department.

    WTF is going on with the dresses and styling on both chicks??? Terrible – the worst is Rebecca’s mid-calf boots and random arm hole. Whoever green-lighted those looks needs to be fired.

  18. Kleo says:

    Not to snark, but I think Rebecca is an exception to the tall-and-thin-people-can-wear-anything rule. I mean…what? If you look at other things she’s worn to premieres they’re always a little off-kilter, which is fine, but things can be off-kilter AND flattering. The boots look like she got them at a Ginger Spice yard sale, and the top of the dress looks like it was ripped after she tried to hug one of her co-stars. Add in her questionable relationship with Sam Mendes (WHY would you date someone you were accused of cheating with?) and I’m left with this: ???

  19. terrah. says:

    uft. shocking boots becki.

  20. Vesta says:

    So he says this is his favorite genre as a moviegoer…Well helloo Eric we have something in common so just call me to be your movie date!

    Seriously I love love love him doing this type of role !

    And I agree that Munich is one of Spielberg's finest films and Bana was brilliant in it.

    In his interview he tends to be somewhat guarded, but I guess he just prefers to keep it low-key.

    The ladies are straight from the Project Runway: The Worst collection. I can see Michael Kors cringing…

  21. Boromir's Bytch says:

    When he tells stories he’s mesmerizing, funny and engaging. When he has to answer specific questions, especially when someone wants his personal opinion, he becomes guarded and clams up. He gives nothing away in question/answer interviews but let him just chat and he opens right up. I wonder if he does it on purpose?

  22. Tiffany :) says:

    He is incredibly hot. Love him!

  23. Kate says:

    been salivating over him since Troy.

  24. susiecue says:

    There is no feasible scenario in which I would not hit it.
