Trivia In preparation for his role as attorney Rick Mountcastle, Peter Sarsgaard went to Dayton (OH) where he accompanied local police on ride-alongs, hung out with active opioid users, talked with afflicted family members and support groups, and went to a jail where he observed users trying to dry out. He has said that the hands-on experience transformed his perspective and imbued him with more empathy and understanding for the victims of the epidemic. See more »
