Paul Dano

Paul Dano, 32, receives his first Golden Globe nomination as Best supporting actor for portraying composer and Beach Boys founder Brian Wilson as a young man in Love & Mercy directed by Bill Pohlad, while John Cusack plays him in the later years when he was fighting mental illness. Dano talked to HFPA about this experience: “In the spirit of Brian, I did try to summon any ghosts or angels that might come visit us, because he felt connected to something bigger than himself, while he was in the studio recording Pet Sounds back in the 60s.
