Independent Films, Talk Shows, Movie Reviews, Interviews
Bobby Cannavale co-stars in the new Fox Searchlight dramedy “Win Win.” He plays Terry Delfino, a friend of Paul Giamatti’s Mike Flaherty. I love this movie from writer/director Thomas McCarthy (“The Station Agent,” “The Visitor”). It’s a testament of our human frailties, about losing everything to win!
In this interview, we talked about:
Cannavale’s interest in working on the film and his character
Working with Thomas McCarthy
How he and Giamatti bonded
Did he wrestle when he was in high school?

Here’s more info on “Win Win” from Yahoo:
Disheartened attorney Mike Flaherty, who moonlights as a high school wrestling coach, stumbles across a star athlete through some questionable business dealings while trying to support his family. Just as it looks like he will get a double payday, the boy's mother shows up fresh from rehab and flat broke, threatening to derail everything.
