Daniel Day-Lewis has never been considered a movie star, the choices he makes as an actor are far from glamorous, but ever since watching his 1-2-3 punch of My Left Foot, In the Name of the Father and The Age of Innocence as a child he’s been one of my favorite actors around.
Curiously, I’ve still never seen The Last of the Mohicans in its entirety. Go figure. Judging by the early buzz and these interviews below we can’t wait to see P.T. Anderson’s There Will Be Blood.
Paramont Vantage has supplied interviews with stars Daniel Day-Lewis and Paul Dano. Dano, you may not have heard of but he was the philosophy obsessed mute kid in Little Miss Sunshine. This role seems to be a major step up for him as an actor. As for Daniel Day-Lewis, we’re told this is perhaps his most intense and frightening role to day – not faint praise for the man who brought us Bill “The Butcher” Cutting.
There Will Be Blood strikes for oil on Dec. 26 in limited release.
