Actor Paul Dano already has already played a number of complex roles in his young career so it will be perfectly natural for George to talk to him about fear, violence and the trust it takes for an actor to dig deep and bring their best to the big screen. He's certainly encountered all of those things in his career. Dano always seems to be squaring off against acting heavyweights like Daniel Day-Lewis (in There Will Be Blood) and Robert De Niro (in Being Flynn).
In his newest films he crosses other quality actors like Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Brad Pitt. During George's interview with Dano he talks about his new films Prisoners and 12 Years A Slave, both of which had world premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival. Oh, and then there’s his upcoming Beach Boys biopic Love And Mercy, his band Mook and working with Canadian director Denis Villeneuve. Clearly there's a lot to learn about Paul Dano.
