‘Fahrenheit 451’ Star Michael Shannon: Trump ‘Going to Do Damage We’re Not Going to Be Able to Recover From’

Actor Michael Shannon plays a version of Captain Beatty in HBO’s new ‘Fahrenheit 451.’ In the Ray Bradbury novel upon which the film is based, Beatty is a villainous character, bent on silencing all truth and information. Though the book was originally written in the 50’s, Shannon believes the story may be even more relevant today in the Trump era.
