Like most British thespians, Mark Rylance built his reputation on the stage. He had done bit parts here and there for the past twenty or so years, but it wasn’t until Steven Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies that Rylance showed what he can do on film, playing the clear-eyed and shrewd Soviet spy Rudolph Abel. Prior to this breakthrough, Rylance drifted in and out of random movies, some of them pretty bad. In 2013, Rylance costarred in the pretentious travesty, Days and Nights, along with William Hurt and Ben Whishaw. The film follows some uninteresting familial drama set in 1980s New England, and Rylance seems to just skulk around looking serious.
