Set three years after "Ocean's 11," this sequel shows us Danny Ocean gathering up his complete gang of con artists and thieves from the first film in New York City before they all jet off to Amsterdam, Rome, and Paris to pull off three seperate heists. All the while, the boys must deal with increasing pressure from a very mad Terry Benedict, a dedicated Europol agent, and a mysterious French rival simply called Dinner Jacket. Will Ocean's crew reach their full potential and become the greatest thieves the world has ever known, or will they fall victim to Benedict's revenge? All bets are off.

Hologram Expert?

Eddie Izzard's been over to Italy to play a role in the 'Ocean's 11' sequel 'Ocean's 12', alongside Brad Pitt and George Clooney. Modest Eddie told us that he reckons his character ties the film together: "I have a small, but I think pivotal role - I think the whole cast just spins round my character." "He is called Roman Nagle, but if you look on imdb.com, where all the film's details are, it says that I'm playing a different character!" "He's an expert in holograms - they need to steal something and they need to put a hologram in it's place so it looks like it hasn't been stolen, and I am the only person that can make that." "Fun to do it filming in Rome." As well as having 'Oceans 12' and three other films coming out, a collection of Eddie's stand-up DVDs is also about to hit the shops. However, just because he's the star, doesn't mean that he got a free copy - he told us had to had to get his hands on it by other means: "I like the boxset because it opens up and, as a sad person myself, I went out and bought one." "I hadn't seen it - so I actually got someone else to buy it." "I was actually going to buy it myself because I was like 'I just want to touch it' because I just like things."

Character Name

Eddie's character's name is "Roman Nagle".

Comedian Eddie Izzard is earning his job title with his latest remarks about his new project and his hopes of becoming a Hollywood heartthrob - albeit of a different sort to the norm.

Eddie is all packed and ready to go and join the boys on the set of Ocean's Twelve, where he'll be playing a bomb disposal expert alongside George Clooney, Brad Pitt and the others, but he has his expectations:

"I go out to the set next Sunday and I'm hoping we'll all drive around in fast cars and speedboats, drinking champagne.

"I met Brad Pitt already when he came to a gig with Jennifer Aniston at the Henry Fonda Theatre in LA.

"I didn't really get to talk to him a huge amount, but he knows that I talk a lot of crap and wear a lot of make-up," he admitted.

The comedian seems to be making a bit of a name for himself in Hollywood circles of late, after his performance as Charlie Chaplin in The Cat's Meow, alongside Kirsten Dunst and Joanna Lumley.

He revealed how he thought long and hard about how to play Chaplin: "It took some incisive and bold choices on my part. In the same way that Johnny Depp decided to act in Pirates Of The Caribbean in the style of Keith Richards, I decided to play the part of Chaplin as if he was trying to get laid."

On the set, Eddie hit it off with Lumley,who strangely taught him to start eating some dirt with his food. He said: 'Joanna Lumley and I get on well because we are both very English and very non-English, too. She was born in India and I was born in Yemen.We'd argue about God and the monarchy and she taught me that eating a little bit of dirt with your food builds up antibodies very good for avoiding dysentery in India. Now I pick food off the floor, whereas before I washed it thoroughly.'

Eddie, who won two Emmys for his oneman show Dressed To Kill, admits that acting is now his main focus in life. He also has a penchant for politics especially the European issue and is so staunchly behind it that he has performed his show in French. He now plans to do it in German, too. He said:'I always wanted to act, but got into comedy first. It's surreal to do both and I'm lucky that people have given me the benefit of the doubt. 'I could probably sell a comedy gig easier than a drama. I'd be happy to play Richard III and Macbeth at some point and I would like to play Robert Donat's role in The Thirty Nine Steps.'

Eddie is keen to avoid playing a transvestite in films in case he gets typecast. He wanted to play opposite Sharon Stone, Nicole Kidman, and Angelina Jolie, and he says he wouldn't show them up on the red carpet, despite getting offers from big fashion names who want him to wear their dresses.

He said: 'If I play a straight guy in man's clothing in a film then I will go to a premier wearing men's clothes. If I playa transvestite then I'll wear a dress on the red carpet. There's no point in confusing people.'

Eddie also stated that he wouldn't be surprised if he became some sort of heartthrob in Tinseltown: "I fit in exactly to the Hollywood heartthrob role. I already am a charismatic heartthrob, maybe not an action type with a chiselled jaw, but maybe more of a coming in from the outside line, type of heartthrob," he said.

Hint of Role?

Izzard in Ocean's 12

British comedian Eddie Izzard has joined the all-star cast of Steven Soderbergh's 'Oceans 12'. Revealed exclusively through a text service from his official site www.EddieIzzard.com, he left the following message: 'I'm here at the Cannes Film Festival and it takes me back to my years at the Edinburgh Festival - just way more sun. Eddie. PS i am now in the film Oceans 12.' He has previously been seen in films such as The Avengers, Shadow of the Vampire and Mystery Men. Izzard is also starring in John Turturro's Romance and Cigarettes.

"One British presence around the festival has been comic Eddie Izzard, who has carved out a niche for himself as a very good character actor.

Eddie has made it no secret that he wants a big Hollywood career -- probably a first for a man who has made his name by talking about cats drilling for oil behind living room sofas.

He is on the way to realizing that ambition -- Eddie is currently filming Oceans 12, playing a bomb expert alongside main stars George Clooney and Brad Pitt.

Eddie sites Peter Sellers as one of his role models. Sellers deftly managed the transition from British radio comedian to international film star, a path that Eddie says he wants to follow: "Do I want the wealth, the women, the celebrity? That's the only reason I'm doing this."
