Actor Richard Dreyfuss has deep roots in American history. He carries that in his passion for civics, maintaining his status as an everyday person often asking questions about the efficacy of government or why Wall Street is able to get away with what they do? In his most recent project, he plays out that very passion by portraying Bernie Madoff in the ABC miniseries Madoff. Dreyfuss shares his concern for the state of US politics and why he chooses to play characters that are self-aware.
