Pico Alexander: Face In The Crowd
He only had one scene, one brief, but poignant scene as Oscar Isaac's son in last years A Most Violent Year, but that one scene had me wanting to know a bit more about 24 year old actor Pico Alexander. Although the movie racked up critical praise and a slew of awards and nominations, it didn't get the attention it should have, including being shut out from getting any academy award nominations.
I think the problem was the films pace, it was slow and methodical, but I loved the faded, depressed and violent presentation of New York in the early 1980's. Pico has begun to make a name for himself on stage (Our Town, Punk Rock) and on television in Orange Is The New Black, The Following and The Carrie Diaries. Pico will soon be seen in next year's Indignation, with actor Logan Lerman,
