      The pie would point to someone from the American Pie franchise, but they just released a “photo booth” promo and no one looks like they’ve gained a lot of weight. http://www.digitalspy.com/movies/news/a338144/jason-biggs-tara-reid-in-american-reunion-photobooth-trailer.html

        I think Jason Biggs is dead on. These still shots were probably photoshopped.

      I like this guess… also because of stiff” = Stiffler. One of the American Pie characters.

        Didn’t Seann W Scott also gain weight? Maybe it’s him.

      10 seconds into the digitalspy montage, you can blatantly see that Biggs has gained some serious tummy action.

    “..but this time around he was rather round about the tum.”

    and

    “..but feelings were sore and things were a bit stiff until Sir Portly finished his scenes.”

    I think these are clues, but my brain is on standby right now.

    Could be Alan Rickman. If you look at him throughout the movies, he has a tendency to lose and gain weight. The Half-Blood Prince premiere was during the filming of DH and Alan’s stomach was huge. He couldn’t even tuck his shirt in.

      I can’t see Alan Rickman saying, “this movie isn’t worth it.” He’s always been very positive about the Potter movies and has always been very invested in his character’s story.

        That doesn’t mean he didn’t say it. He’s the only British guy that fits. Michael Caine was pretty big in the first Batman movie so “showing the first time fit and fine” doesn’t fit. I googled recent pics of Sir Ian and he looks to be in pretty good shape. Alan is the only one who was slender in the first movie, but not in the last. And “fearing for the consistency of the franchise” also fits because Snape is describe as a “thin” man.

        I agree w/ yepimbored. Snape was much rounder on the last HP. You could tell even thru his robes.

    I think it’s definitely a British actor, since no way is “Sir” Portly an accident, so it’s someone who has been knighted. Alan Rickman hasn’t had that honour, and while Ian McKellen is knighted, I can’t see him saying something like that to Peter Jackson (The Hobbit). And, McKellan is naturally slender.

    I think Sir Michael Caine might be it. He is currently filming The Dark Knight Rises, and I can definitely see him saying something like that. Plus, he tends to the portly side.

      Nolan didn’t ask Leo Dicaprio to slim down for INCEPTION so i don’t see him to ask it Michael Caine(78 years old)with who he worked 5 times: honestly who cares Alfred is fat?

      yet he’s not Bale or Jude Law or RDJ

      no idea

        Agree. Michael Caine is a living legend, beyond nit-picking about a little weight. He adds gravitas and heart to Nolan’s Batman movies.

        And he’s always had a GREAT work ethic. In fact, he was known for a long time to take ANYTHING.

      Caine was big in the first new Batman movie in 2005. And as raslebol said, who cares if Alfred is fat? Severus Snape on the other hand is describe as a “thin” man. Plus Alan had more screen time in DH and had to play a 20 year old. McKellan has robes to cover him up, so I doubt it could be him.

    If it’s not a British actor — I thought it might be RPattz, seeing as he said the film “wasn’t worth it” and Breaking Dawn relies heavily on Edward getting shirtless, and “tum” and “Sir Portly” point to a Brit — then I’m on board with an American Pie guy.

      I thought of Rob Pattinson, too. In some of those set shots of him filming Breaking Dawn down in Brazil, he has a serious buddha belly working. He was no where near as fit as he was in New Moon.

      My mind went to Orlando Bloom. He’s definitely gained weight since the first Lord of The Rings and its shown more recently but its more muscle than fat.

      It is kind of unreasonable for PJ to expect that the actors not gain weight or look different 10 years later so maybe not?

      But RPattz IS a Brit! I think this is a great guess. (I also happen to agree with Rob…)

      Not Rob. Here’s a pic of him filming the beach scene during Breaking Dawn.

      He’s in excellent shape. As a matter of fact, he’s in more shape in this movie than New Moon.

    I think it is Peter Facinelli who played Carlisle Cullen in Twilight. In the last Breaking Dawn films, look at his face in the trailer he looks really fat.

      It’s not him. From the video he filmed a few days before BD wrapped up, he only had a little pouch. Nothing the director would be complaining about. Plus, a few of the big clues point to someone who is most likely a Brit.

    Just picking up on algernon’s mention of Orlando Bloom, wasn’t there some controversy regarding his role in The Hobbit? His appearance is supposed to be two minutes long and yet he’s being paid $1million? Maybe the two minutes screen time explains the “this movie is not worth it” comment?

      I read about that. But OB is more muscular these days than fat. The fact he’s getting paid 500k a minute, I can’t see him saying it’s not worth it.

    Clearly the person is British. However, I can not see Sir Ian saying this or anyone associated with The Hobbit. They fought too long to get this made.

    I will go with M. Cain because he is known to be a bit of a prat.

    Pretty sure it’s Seann William Scott. He’s gained a ton of weight, went to rehab for something or another, and just looks bad. Stiff/Stifler, the pie. He’s my pick.

      He’s not a major character in BD, so I doubt the director would make a big fuss over his weight. He did gain some weight, but you wouldn’t have noticed unless you were looking hard enough.
