The veteran actor is a natural, both in talent and execution. For his next project, Sundance Film Festival darling Kajillionaire which arrives today from Focus Features, his role as Robert falls squarely in the latter camp. Written and directed by Miranda July, Kajillionaire is driven by two con artists who have spent 26 years training their only daughter, Old Dolio played by a nearly unrecognizable Evan Rachel Wood , to swindle, scam and steal at every turn.
