'Our Brand is Crisis' was produced by George Clooney and stars Sandra Bullock and Billy Bob Thorton.

Daily Buzz Host John Wildman meets up with actor Dominic Flores (Our Brand is Crisis, The Meddler) at the 40th Edition of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

Our Brand is Crisis was produced by George Clooney, directed by David Gordon Green and stars Sandra Bullock, Billy Bob Thorton and Anthony Mackie. Set in 2002, the film centers around a Bolivian politician who hires an American — James Carville and his political consulting firm, Greenberg Carville Shrum —  to help him win the 2002 Bolivian presidential election.

Wildman talks with Flores about working with Bullock, Clooney and director Green; what it’s like to have two films debut at the same time at TIFF; and how he prepared for the part.
