Hollywood veteran John Goodman and up-and-coming actress Missi Pyle star in The Artist, one of the most buzzed about films of 2011. Goodman portrays Al Zimmer, a movie studio tycoon bridging the gap between silent films and talkies and Pyle is Constance, an actress struggling to maintain the limelight. Both sat down for an exclusive video interview with Movie Fanatic to discuss the magic that is The Artist.
The film’s leads are Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo (stay with Movie Fanatic for our upcoming exclusive with!), who play a pair of Depression era stars -- the former on his way down the celebrity chain and the latter on her way up. The Artist is a silent film, shot in black and white, and it captures old Hollywood as few films have with a power and presence that makes it one of the year’s best.
