Sam Rockwell Jojo Rabbit

Sam Rockwell won an Oscar earlier this year for his portrayal of a violent and racist cop in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, but the actor isn’t taking the usual post-Oscar path.

Now, after dabbling in blockbuster studio filmmaking with Warcraft and Source Code, Jones has been given almost complete creative freedom by Netflix to pursue his longtime passion project, Mute. And some of that creative freedom goes to making a fun nod to his most beloved film.
