Where You’ve Seen The Cast Of See How They Run Before




For more than a decade, Queens-born Brody was known as a solid supporting face in films like Steven Soderbergh’s “King of the Hill,” Barry Levinson’s “Liberty Heights” and Spike Lee’s “Summer of Sam.” Then, Roman Polanski cast him as Wladyslaw Szpilman, a Polish Jewish musician trying to survive Warsaw in “The Pianist,” and everything changed. Brody won the Oscar, kissed Halle Berry in one of Oscar’s most famous moments, and became one of Hollywood’s most in-demand actors.

Since then, Brody has worked with the likes of Peter Jackson on his “King Kong” remake, M. Night Shyamalan on “The Village,” Woody Allen in “Midnight in Paris, but also stumbled at times with “The Jacket,” “Splice,” “Predators,” “Bullet Head” and other films best forgotten. His most frequent collaborator has been Wes Anderson, having played a role in four of the director’s films: “The Darjeeling Limited,” “Fantastic Mr. Fox,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” and “The French Dispatch.”

Aside from his feature film work and occasional side effort as one of the “Masters of Style,” Brody has ventured into television as well, with guest stints on series like “Peaky Blinders” and “Succession.” In the lead role of Captain Charles Boone, Brody starred in “Chapelwaite,” a series based on Stephen King’s short story “Jerusalem’s Lot,” and then played Pat Riley in “Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty.” In 2014, Brody took on the role of Harry Houdini in History’s “Houdini” miniseries, which earned him an Emmy nomination.
