Natalie, James, Matt, and More Act Out For the New York Times

The New York Times Magazine rounded up some of this year's biggest award season contenders for its Hollywood Issue. They invited Independent Spirit nominees Natalie Portman and James Franco, as well as Matt Damon, Javier Bardem, Jesse Eisenberg, and others, to appear in 14 Actors Acting. The series of black-and-white videos spotlights classic, silver-screen archetypes and moments — with no dialogue. Natalie, whose Black Swan just had an impressive opening weekend, portrays a femme fatale in her short film. Meanwhile, Matt performs a violent tirade, Biutiful star Javier angrily smashes a table full of glasses and plates, and Jesse fires a gun in slow motion. For his part, James put in a slightly humorous turn as a rebellious type who makes out with his own reflection, a departure from the intense role in 127 Hours that's earned him early Oscar buzz.
