How Mank’s Tom Pelphrey Approached Playing A Hollywood Icon Before They Became Iconic

In the new Netflix movie, the Iron Fist actor plays Joseph Mankiewicz, a man recognized as one of the all-time great American directors, but it also happens to be a story that is entirely set in the years before he took the helm of his first film. Instead, the feature puts all of its focus on Joseph’s older brother, Herman Mankiewicz, and his journey writing the script for Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane, rendering the younger sibling a side character in the tale. It created a strange challenge for Tom Pelphrey, which we discussed during the Mank press day last month – our interview featured in the video at the top of this article.
