Happy Sad Confused
It's hard to pick a favorite Richard Jenkins performance simply because he's always excellent. Do you love him as the suffering father in "Step-Brothers"? Or maybe for his Oscar nominated performance as a solitary widower who takes up the drums in "The Visitor"? Or perhaps his nearly silent turn as an aging caretaker of a vampire in "Let Me In"? And how could we forget his ATF agent in "Flirting With Disaster"?!? In other words, the man has range like few others in his profession.
In this visit to "Happy Sad Confused", Jenkins talks to Josh about his approach to acting, why he had given up on a film career decades ago, how he's managed to carve out a prosperous career while living in Rhode Island, and of course, his latest role in Guillermo Del Toro's magical new film, "The Shape of Water".
