Another Man S/S15: Dane DeHaan photoshoot + behind the scenes video
Dane DeHaan‘s next role, as James Dean in Anton Corbijn’s Life, marks his crossover from complex outsider actor to leading man. Indeed, James Dean is the definitive leading man – the Rebel Without a Cause whose looks, charisma and tragically premature death aged just 24 cemented him into the collective consciousness as an icon of masculinity and mystery.
DeHaan is in the intriguing and difficult position of playing one of his heroes. “I’ve had a poster of Dean on my wall since I was in college and still do now,” he says in his interview with novelist and screenwriter Bruce Wagner. But this film compelled him not as a piece of hagiography – rather because “it tries to show how a normal person can be turned into an icon.” In DeHaan’s shoot with Alister Mackie and Willy Vanderperre, the young actor portrays a modern take on Hollywood masculinity dressed in jacquard and an insouciant lurex tie, all captured in this exclusive behind the scenes film.
