Paul Dano fights a good fight in ‘There Will Be Blood’

 

Sometimes being an actor is harder than it looks. Especially if your name is Paul Dano and you’re having seven bells knocked out of you by the world’s greatest living actor. For Dano, a 23-year-old up-and-comer (he was the taciturn brother in Little Miss Sunshine), the delicate life of a thespian took a gruelling turn when his co-star Daniel Day-Lewis decided to bring some trademark realism to their remarkable new movie There Will Be Blood.

Here, in a pivotal punch-up midway through the film, Day-Lewis’s imperious turn-of-the-century oil prospector Daniel Plainview was required to beat to a pulp and drag, literally, through the mud, his postpubescent nemesis, the greedy evangelical preacher Eli Sunday, played by Dano.
