Exclusive Clip: Michael Shannon And Amy Ryan In The Missing Person
Though his role in Revolutionary Road last year was tiny, just a few scenes, there was no one who walked away from that film last year who didn't remember the name Michael Shannon. The tall and intense Chicago-raised actor has been working in theater for decades, but his role in that film-- which nabbed him a Best Supporting Actor nomination-- was the moment that thousands of moviegoers finally were forced to sit up and pay attention.
And despite his newfound acclaim, Shannon isn't abandoning his indie roots. This weekend he stars in the twisty neo-noir The Missing Person, playing an alcoholic private detective on the tail of a man who was thought to have died in the 9/11 attacks. Shannon's character, full of witty one-liners and sarcastic energy, is dealing with the aftermath of having experienced the attacks himself, even as he trades barbs with the likes of Amy Ryan and John Ventimiglia on his hunt for the missing man.
Below we have an exclusive clip from The Missing Person, in which Shannon arrives in a limousine and proceeds to annoy the driver and Ryan's character, but also woo her in the process. Below that we've also got the movie's trailer. The movie opens today at the City Cinemas Village East in New York.
