Paul Dano’s Defining Moment

View the gallery

Love & Mercy
“I feel like the creative process was really alive on this film,” Dano says of Love & Mercy, in which he portrays a young Brian Wilson. “We had live musicians in the studio, including some of the guys who tour with Brian now, and were filming where he recorded Pet Sounds. It might have been my favorite two weeks of acting in my entire life.”

Dano wears a coat and pants by Gieves & Hawkes, a shirt by Guess and boots by Tod’s.
