Paul Dano Talks About “Being Flynn”

Uploaded on Thursday 15 March 2012


I’ve always been a fan of actor Paul Dano. He gave a memorable performance as a son who would not speak in “Little Miss Sunshine,” and he provoked Oscar-winner Daniel Day Lewis to deliver the iconic line “I... drink... your... milkshake!” in “There Will Be Blood.”

In the new film “Being Flynn,” Dano trades verbal acumen with Robert De Niro who plays his absentee father (and a homophobe and bigot to boot!). And let me tell you, the actor match emotion for emotion, word for word with De Niro.

In this interview, we talked about:

*** His interest in working with “Being Flynn”
*** He read the script first, then he bought the book only to find out that Nick Flynn, the memoir author, left him something in the bookstore
*** Meeting his real-life counterpart
*** His biggest takeaway from the movie
*** Working with De Niro
