At this year’s Toronto Film Festival, I was able to speak with Max Minghella about starring in director George Clooney’s political drama The Ides of March. Co-starring Clooney, Ryan Gosling, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Evan Rachel Wood, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei, and Jeffrey Wright, the pic takes place during the tension-filled days leading up to an all-important Ohio presidential primary where a press secretary (Gosling) finds himself in the middle of a scandal that could upend his candidate’s (Clooney) shot at winning. Loaded with great performances and a smart script, The Ides of March is really well done and definitely worth your time.
During the interview, Minghella talked about how he got involved in the project, working with the great cast and for Clooney, karaoke, and what’s the last video game he played, In addition, Minghella talked about director Chris Gorak’s The Darkest Hour. Hit the jump to watch.
