Ed Harris Finding Beethoven Role Challenging

APOLLO 13 star ED HARRIS is so daunted by the task of playing the title role in his upcoming movie COPYING BEETHOVEN, he's already deeming it the most challenging part of his career.

The 54-year-old actor is currently shooting the independent film in Budapest, Hungary, where he plays legendary composer LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN, and he is finding it far more difficult than when he started painting for his portrayal of artist JACKSON POLLOCK in his acclaimed movie POLLOCK.

He says, "With Pollock, I could build an art studio and take most of the decade and get to the place where I could discover a canvas with paint in his style and create something that had some rhythm and movement to it and some beauty, maybe.

"In this situation, I have not composed my symphony yet... So wish me luck."
