In the critically acclaimed feature Mudbound, Jason Clarke collaborated with celebrated actress Michelle Williams as well as double Oscar nominee Mary J. Blige (who’s also nominated for the song “Mighty River”). With the haunted house thriller Winchester Clarke gets to work with another acting powerhouse in Helen Mirren.
“She makes an enigma real but still keeps it an enigma,” says Clarke. “There’s still a sense of mystery with Helen because she’s just got that charismatic weight about herself as a person. To work with her, she just keeps you laughing. She’s funny and sharp and witty. Intelligent and strong but really simple and basic. There’s nothing pretentious about Helen or pretend about her. She’s a lot of fun.
