Paul Dano has been cast in the lead role of the Brian Wilson biopic Love & Mercy. The production company developing the movie, River Road, announced that Dano has been cast in the lead role of Wilson in the story. They also report that movie composer Atticus Ross (The Social Network) is also in talks to score the film.

Here's what Wilson had to say about Dano plying him in the movie:

I am thrilled that Paul Dano has signed on to play me during one of my most creative explosions and most fulfilling musical times in my career. I still can't believe how cool it is that my life will be portrayed on the big screen and to have Bill Pohlad as the captain of the Sloop John B is amazing! It just makes me feel so humble. I can't wait to see it with a full tub of buttered popcorn. »
