Of course, I tell her she's ridiculous, but indulge her to wander along the back of the store, looking down every aisle, then through the produce, and along the front of the store, where she thinks the actor (Paul Dano) has gone into the Walmart banking area.
I stay in the deodorant aisle while she sneaks around the corner to see if she see's the guy again, but alas, it's not the guy she saw earlier.
So after we finish our shopping, she's see the potential-celebrity, but he's standing behind the photo counter wearing a walmart name badge. And well, from my perspective, he just looked like a pale skinny twenty-year-old with dyed black hair.
My only comment: "You know the guy in Little Miss Sunshine, might not have dyed black hair in real life?"
And in fact, you see in the picture, right, of the then 22-year-old Paul Dano at the Little Miss Sunshine premier at Sundance and he's not in costume of his character Dwayne Hoover at all.
And in fact, with all the cool projects Paul Dano has in store for him, I imagine he's not processing film at Walmart.
Cool Upcoming Projects for Paul Dano:
- PT Anderson's Upton Sinclair adaptation, There Will Be Blood where Dano play Eli Sunday a young Texas preacher opposite Daniel Day-Lewis.
- Spike Jonez's Maurice Sendak's adaptation, Where The Wild Things Are, where Dano will play the voice of Alexander.
