Adam Driver downshifts with the pensive, poetic ‘Paterson’
NEW YORK (AP) — Adam Driver prefers not to see the films and TV shows he's in, a policy that he grants he's taken a little far.
"I haven't seen 'Lincoln' and I have, like, the smallest part in 'Lincoln,' Driver says, chuckling. "It's not called 'Samuel Beckwith the Telegraph Operator,' it's called ... 'Lincoln.' I should watch it."
Even though he stars in two of the better films of the year, Jim Jarmusch's "Paterson" and Martin Scorsese's "Silence," Driver won't see either. It's too excruciating.
