Steven Spielberg gathered the stars of his War Horse outside NYC's Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center for their premiere yesterday. The cast was fresh off a weekend-long junket to promote the movie, which was based on a play adapted from author Michael Morpurgo's 1982 book. We had a chance to speak with the picture's star, newcomer Jeremy Irvine on Saturday. Jeremy said that Steven surprised him with the role in a unique way — at a follow-up audition, Jeremy read a piece of sample dialogue that said he'd gotten the part! We also caught up with some of the movie's dashing British male stars like Tom Hiddleston, Toby Kebbell, and Patrick Kennedy, so stay tuned for those interviews close to the movie's Dec. 25 release date. Elizabeth Olsen and Ed Westwick, while not in Steven's latest offering, still came out to show their support. She headed inside the theater for the screening, and threw an arm around in-demand Avengers star Tom Hiddleston for a photo op.
