Exclusive Video Interview: Bryan Cranston And Jay Roach Talk Trumbo


After a strong run on the festival circuit, Bryan Cranston’s latest effort, Trumbo, is finally hitting theatres this week. Directed by Jay Roach, the film tells the true story of Dalton Trumbo, the titular screenwriter who, while once one of the most in-demand writers in Hollywood, eventually found himself on the Hollywood Blacklist and then jailed for his political beliefs.

Featuring another brilliant performance from Cranston, sharp direction from Roach and an entertaining cast of supporting actors, Trumbo is an excellent movie, and our very own Sam Woolf had the following to say about it in his review:

Trumbo boasts a high wattage ensemble, zippy dialogue and unexpected modesty.

Back in September, at the Toronto International Film Festival, we had the chance to sit down with both Cranston and Roach to discuss their engrossing new film. During the course of our interview, they spoke about what drew them to this fascinating story, how important it was to do justice to Dalton Trumbo, how involved his family was in the making of the movie, and much more.

Check out what Bryan and Jay had to say in the video above, and be sure to catch Trumbo when it hits theatres on November 6th.
