ABOUT DAN TRUMAN
I grew up in a small town in Connecticut, where I drank root beer and savored the smell of old comic books in between walks in the woods as leaves crunched under my feet. I play people with a different point of view, playing by a different set of rules, sometimes vulnerable, often enthusiastic about the wrong things. I’ve played a lot of things, but where I can best contribute to your team is playing someone struggling or wrestling with an ethical or moral dilemma – as embodied in MICHAEL CLAYTON – Tom Wilkinson, THE WOODSMAN – Kevin Bacon, and HOUSE OF CARDS – Corey Stoll. Thanks for stopping by and watching my reel. I can’t wait to add some real character to your next project.
