Brent Saxon

  1. Paul Giamatti, Sideways, 2004.   The journeyman TV actor spent 90 minutes with (a delighted) auteur Alexander Payne. As Saxon left, he saw Aaron Eckhart arriving in his Porsche for his audition.  Also being seen: George Clooney and Brad Pitt!
  2. Haden Church, Sideways, 2004.    “I got a feeling,” said Saxon, “that I’d kinda been called up from the minor leagues. It gave me a little bit more confidence and kind of just told me: Yeah, what you’re doing is working.” And then TV’s, The Killing  turned up… “There’s an email somewhere saying: I own this part.'” And he did.
