Paul Dano Reveals 'Escape at Dannemora' Shooting 'took its toll'
Actor Paul Dano visits "The Talk" and shares his experience shooting Showtime's prison break mini-series "Escape at Dannemora" with director Ben Stiller. "This was a crazy shoot. this was one of the hardest shoots I've ever done. It's one of these stories that, when you read it, if it wasn't true you would think 'Okay, they went too far.' It's fun, it's twisted. But once you're in prison, and visiting prisons, it's like a whole new thing, and so the show kind of took its toll. We filmed some of it at the actual prison, which is a total credit to our director Ben Stiller. There was no way they said we could film...but he did an incredible job. We were told a lot of no's in the beginning, and Ben just like found a way to make it happen ... soon enough he was on the phone were the governor, and soon enough we were in the prison. It's a really intense vibe in there."
