Hollywoodland is the story of George Reeves’ death. Was it suicide? Was it an accident? Was it murder? To frame that question, the film presents a composite character of detective Louis Simo investigating the case, played by Adrien Brody.

Adrien Brody Talks Hollywoodland

“My character is obviously a part of Hollywood, but not within the industry that we're all in,” Brody said. “The advantage of that is that it illustrates that it is not just something that people that within this industry face. I think that it's a common thread. Most people are under the impression that if they only had more of something that that would fulfill them and that's usually not the case and you don't know that until you've reached that goal.”

Just like Reeves wanted a more respected career, Simo wants to be the best detective. “I think that within the story Simo's life paralleled George's in the sense that he creates respect and money and success, and I think that he looked for a bigger picture rather than solving the smaller problems in his life that would ultimately make him a happier human being. So that's what was fascinating to me. It shows that what may appear as glamorous is rarely as glamorous as it appears.”

Brody himself has no judgments about Reeves’ death. “I don't know the answer. I think that the evidence shows that there might've been foul play, but it was documented as a suicide. Allen and I made a conscious decision to limit my actual research beyond the scope of what Simo would know throughout the film because why play against something that you don't know already. So it just made sense and was a rare luxury. So I'm not sure actually. I would hate for my opinion to somehow resonate as truth for someone.”

Hollywoodland has a limited release on September 8th.
