SHOTLIST (including transcript):-Entertainment One1. Trailer clip: "Dallas Buyers Club"AP EntertainmentLondon, 29 Jan. 20142. Close of Matthew McConaughey being interviewed 3. SOUNDBITE (English) Matthew McConaughey/Actor - on reading the diaries of Ron Woodroof:"The diary was from before he had HIV. So what was important about that was I, I got the guy's monologue so then I could go and act and have the dialogue. What I mean by that is, I got what the guy, the socratic dialogue he was having with himself. The lonely nights he was sitting around. The Sunday nights when he was excited about getting an electrician job and going across town and fixing someone's stereo tomorrow. And he'd be up at 6 o'clock, coffee, pressed jacket and the call would never come in. A guy who was charging his batteries for his pager because he was excited about going to work, no one would page him. And slowly through the week you would see him start to drift. Entertainment One4. Trailer clip: "Dallas Buyers Club"AP EntertainmentLondon, 29 Jan. 20145. Wide of Jared Leto being interviewed6. SOUNDBITE (English) Jared Leto/Actor - on what kind of acceptance speech he could give for the Oscars if he won:"I guess you can get classier or filthier depending on your mood. I'll probably err on classy. But you know you go up and speak from the heart, I guess. I'm not, I'm assuming that I'm not going to have the opportunity to go up. That's probably the safe bet if you're going to assume anything. I've gotten an incredible amount of love and support so far, so I'm not counting on anything. I'm just enjoying the day, the moment, being nominated. I'll always have that."Entertainment One7. Trailer clip: "Dallas Buyers Club"
