Paul Dano, arguably the most deserving Best Supporting Actor contender of 2015 for his Love & Mercy performance as Brian Wilson, has been telling me for months about a BBC-produced War and Peace miniseries he shot in Europe last winter and spring. He portrayed Pierre Bezukhov, the role that Henry Fonda had in the 1956 King Vidor verison of Leo Tolstoy‘s novel. The six-part miniseries, which costars Lily James, Jim Broadbent, James Norton, Gillian Anderson, Tuppence Middleton, Brian Cox and Stephen Rea, will debut in the U.K. on BBC One later this year. It will simultaneously air on three U.S. networks — Lifetime, History, A&E Network — sometime early next year.
