Now playing in theaters is director Jason Reitman’s (Up in the Air) latest feature, Men, Women & Children. Starring Ansel Elgort, Dean Norris, Adam Sandler, Rosemarie DeWitt, Judy Greer, J.K. Simmons, Elena Kampouris, Timothée Chalamet, Olivia Crocicchia, Dennis Haysbert, and the voice of Emma Thompson, the drama follows the loosely connected stories of a group of teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate life in the digital age. Loaded with great performances and a smart script, Men, Women & Children is able to tap into the zeitgeist of our tech-obsessed culture yet it doesn’t feel pedantic or forced. It was definitely one of my favorite films at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival.

Recently I landed an exclusive phone interview with Dean Norris. Besides talking about working with Jason Reitman and making Men, Women & Children, we talked about his career, the way he likes to work, playing a small but key role in Paul Verhoeven’s Total Recall, Breaking Bad, his thoughts on Better Call Saul and if he’d like to cameo on it, getting to work with Christopher Plummer on Atom Egoyan’s Remember, and so much more. Hit the jump for the interview.
