Adrien Brody has starred in a number of vastly different films, including "The Darjeeling Limited," "King Kong," "The Fantastic Mr. Fox," and even the explosive action film "Predators."
Today, his newest movie hits theaters. It’s called "Detachment," and in it Brody stars as Henry Barthes, a substitute teacher with a secret past who never stays anywhere long enough to form a bond with his students or colleagues.
"Detachment" features an all-star cast, including Lucy Liu, Marsha Gay Harden, Christina Hendricks, and Bryan Cranston. Tony Kaye, who’s most famous for "American History X" is the director.
Director Tony Kaye and actor Adrien Brody discuss working together on the film, “Detachment.” Brody plays a substitute teacher who moves around often to avoid getting attached, but that changes when he accidentally becomes a role model to the students at a public school where the teachers are burnt out and the students are apathetic. “Detachment” opens March 16 at the Empire 42nd Street and Village East theaters.
