Variety’s 10 Actors to Watch Panel

Variety’s 10 Actors to Watch Panel

VARIETY – Grace Van Patten, daughter of “Sopranos” director Tim Van Patten, said all her time growing up in Hollywood didn’t prepare her for director Noah Baumbach’s audition strategy. When she went to read for a part in the upcoming “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected),” she was handed 15 pages of sides and given 10 minutes to prepare. “You’ve just got to tell yourself that everybody is in the same position,” she said. “You just gotta breathe.”

It wasn’t until Baumbach told her that she had the part that she learned who her co-stars would be: Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson, among other luminaries. “He gave me all four names at once,” she said. “I couldn’t handle myself.” Like many of Baumbach’s previous films, “The Meyerowitz Stories” depicts a complicated family relationship that is at turns harrowing and hilarious. It won the Palm D’or at Cannes in May.
