8iIIo /or­tePseP is get­ting Os­car buzz for his role as a chauf­feur hired to drive an ac­claimed black pi­anist (Ma­her­shala Ali) on a con­cert tour through the Deep South in the movie Green Book (in the­aters now). The wlm takes its ti­tle from the ’È0s travel guide to safe mo­tor­ing for African-Amer­i­cans dur­ing the Jim Crow era. “Road movies give you an op­por­tu­nity to put char­ac­ters to­gether that nor­mally wouldn’t [be],” says Mortensen, È0. “In­ter­est­ing things can and will hap­pen.”
