Interview: John Caroll Lynch for The Founder

8 February 2017 12:17 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

In The Founder, John Carroll Lynch stars as Mac McDonald – who, partnered with his brother Dick McDonald (Nick Offerman) – created the first McDonald’s restaurant in California in the 1940s. Based on a true story, the new film from director John Lee Hancock (Saving Mr. Banks), follows the trail of how traveling salesman Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton), impressed by the brothers’ innovative assembly-line approach to the kitchen, maneuvered himself into a position where he was ultimately able to take control of the company, transforming himself in the process to the ‘founder’ of an economic empire.

The Founder

Appearing in over 50 films and television productions, John Carrol Lynch first sprang to prominence in 1996 with the Coen brothers’ critically acclaimed, Fargo. His films include Gothika, Things We Lost in the Fire, Zodiac, Gran Torino, Shutter Island, and Crazy, Stupid, Love. On television, Lynch has starred in such popular series as The Drew Carey Show »
