CS Video: Hugh Jackman and the cast of The Front Runner
Sony Pictures Entertainment invited ComingSoon.net to attend the TV junket for director Jason Reitman’s political biopic The Front Runner, based on the presidential campaign former Senator Gary Hart. We got to chat with star Hugh Jackman, his co-stars Sara Paxton and Mamoudou Athie as well as director Jason Reitman. Check out the video interviews below, and check out the film as it expands nationwide today!
Oscar nominee Hugh Jackman stars as the charismatic politician Gary Hart in the film that follows the rise and fall of Senator Hart, who captured the imagination of young voters and was considered the overwhelming front-runner for the 1988 Democratic presidential nomination when his campaign was sidelined by the story of an extramarital relationship with Donna Rice. As tabloid journalism and political journalism merged for the first time, Senator Hart was forced to drop out of the race – events that left a profound and lasting impact on American politics and the world stage.
The Front Runner also stars Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring), J.K. Simmons (Juno), Alfred Molina (FX’s The Feud), Sara Paxton (Twin Peaks), and Kaitlyn Dever.
The film has been playing in limited release since November 6, and opens in wide release today.
