Adrien Brody on The Hour with George Stroumboulopoulos
www.cbc.ca That's when the world really took notice of Adrien, but he'd already been making movies for more than a decade. Growing up in Queens, New York, Adrien was encouraged by his parents to act so as to keep out of trouble. He got his first TV acting role at 15 and five years later, he hit the big screen in the Depression-era drama 'King of the Hill.' Then, in 1998, Adrien's break-out role - at least that's what he thought. Adrien got cast as 'Corporal Fife' in a little war flick called 'The Thin Red Line.' But when he went to the premiere, he found most of his scenes had been left on the editing room floor. He's certainly made up for it since though. Adrien rocked as a bisexual punk kid-slash-murder suspect in 'Summer of Sam' and played a Jewish boy coming of age in the 50's flick 'Liberty Heights.' Then came the role that got Adrien that pretty little gold statue - 'The Pianist.' Since then, Adrien's played the village idiot in 'The Village', a love struck screenwriter in 'King Kong' and one of three dysfunctional brothers on a journey across India in 'The Darjeeling Limited.' Adrien's latest role: a professional con man, alongside Mark Ruffalo. They're 'The Brothers Bloom' and they're out to pull their very last con.
