Actor Paul Dano (1984 - ), Currently Starring In "The Extra Man" and "Knight & Day", Has Roots In Scranton

The July 30, 2010 issue of The Wall Street Journal featured a review of the new film The Extra Man, specifically praising young actor Paul Dano ((whose film credits include Little Miss Sunshine, There Will Be Blood and Knight & Day) for "stealing" the film from Kevin Kline. Though born in New York City, Dano's father grew up in Scranton, Pennsylvania. In addition, Dano's grandfather (a lawyer) and Aunt Olga have also lived in Scranton in the past.

The Extra Man, based upon the novel by Jonathan Ames, is now playing in limited release.

Much thanks to Evelyn Gibbons and Dr. Peter Cupple for this reference.
