Questions and Answers With Dane DeHaan

Dane DeHaan can't avoid the hype that's already building for his upcoming roles in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" and "Metallica Through the Never" (and will forever be connected with his entrance onto the feature scene with 2012's "Chronicle"), but "The Place Beyond the Pines" is key to his breakout. After all, it's not every 26-year-old actor who can be mentioned in the same breath as Academy Award nominees Bradley Cooper and Ryan Gosling (though he never shared scenes with the latter).

Not that the boyish-faced actor is often recognized in person. While talking to NextMovie ahead of this Tuesday's DVD release of "Pines" — "director Derek Cianfrance's follow-up to "Blue Valentine" — DeHaan revealed that he had recently been on a plane, surrounded by people watching the movie. According to him, not a single one of them gave him a knowing side-eye.

"People just don't assume that the guy next to you is gonna be the guy in the movie," he said. "It's funny. People don't realize it, because it's not something that anyone would expect to happen."

Read on for more on DeHaan watching people watch his movies, his resemblance to young Luke Skywalker and the one fact about himself that he really, really wants to set straight. Get More »

Poster: How They Should Be Selling 'The Place Beyond the Pines'

The marketing team at Focus Features apparently hasn't noticed that "The Place Beyond the Pines" has one of the most good-looking casts of this movie year -- or any other, for that matter. Why struggle with how to sell Derek Cianfrance's latest multi-layered mopey melodrama when you can just embrace the age-old practice of Truth in Advertising? This isn't rocket science, people.

The most honest (or most shameless, however you want to look at it) approach is usually the most effective. Compare our poster to the original and tell us which would get more asses in the seats.
