    Actor Paul Dano of There Will Be Blood and Little Miss Sunshine fame will portray The Beach Boys' Brian Wilson in the upcoming biopic Love & Mercy., which will focus on Wilson's ongoing fight with mental illness and his relationship with his wife.

    Dano will actually play the younger version of Wilson, while another, as yet-uncast actor will play the older version of the musician.

    Do you want to see this film? Is Paul Dano a good choice to portray a young Brian Wilson?
