PIC - DE PALMA w/SCORSESE & JAY COCKS
AT LUNCHEON TUESDAY TO CELEBRATE PARAMOUNT'S NATIONAL BOARD OF REVIEW WINNERS
The photo at left, taken by Marion Curtis, shows Brian De Palma with Martin Scorsese and Jay Cocks at a luncheon hosted by Paramount Pictures this past Tuesday to celebrate the studio's National Board of Review award winners (Scorsese and Cocks won best adapted screenplay for Silence). The three have been friends, of course, for many many years. Cocks did the documentary-within-the-film for De Palma's Sisters, and the two are also credited together with rewriting George Lucas' opening crawl for Star Wars (back when it was just called Star Wars). In 1998, Cocks co-wrote De Palma's unrealized project Nazi Gold.

As for the luncheon, The Hollywood Reporter's Scott Feinberg included a brief description in an article about that night's awards ceremony:
Other big winners included Arrival's Amy Adams for best actress, introduced as a "badass" by Chris Messina; and Silence's Jay Cocks and Martin Scorsese for best adapted screenplay, introduced by the film's supporting actors Adam Driver and Liam Neeson. (Adams, Cocks and Scorsese also were feted earlier in the day with a Paramount-hosted, Academy member-packed luncheon high above Manhattan in Rockefeller Center's Rainbow Room; many attendees of that gathering subsequently hustled over to the 21 Club, where Lonergan and Affleck were at the center of a similar event, hosted by Manchester distributors Amazon Studios and Roadside Attractions; and later to The Monkey Bar, where The Weinstein Co., which was shut out of the NBR Awards, toasted Lion lead actor Sunny Pawar, supporting actor Dev Patel and supporting actress Nicole Kidman.)

Geoff, do you suppose there's any chance that Cocks was also the unbilled player in the small role as the desk clerk at the clinic in "Sisters"? I've wondered about that over the years. There is some resemblance…

Loved to have seen Nazi Gold as a realized film. The story was for a group of operatives break into a Swiss bank vault to steal the Nazi gold and distribute the gold back to Jewish families who lost loved ones during the holocaust. The operatives would have masqueraded as a film unit filming inside the bank while the heist was taking place. Brilliant set-up that reminds me of the scenarious from the vintage Mission:Impossible tv series. Pity it never happened as this is the type of genre that can be highly successfull.

You're right, Bill, there is some resemblance there... maybe it was him.
