Nobody dangles a cigarette from their mouth on screen like Ben Mendelsohn. The actor defies the laws of physics to keep it hanging from his lips for an unnatural amount of time. There’s sometimes the added difficulty curve of lighting the cigarette at the same time. These are the nuances Mendelsohn brings to each performance. A master of ‘less is more’, his characters move low and slow to control their status in any situation and it makes Mendelsohn a magnetic screen presence. Mendelsohn has built a career playing rogues using his downtrodden, laid back style of acting. Early in his career, Mendelsohn’s approach was classified by comedians, Tony Martin and Mick Molloy, on their radio show Martin Molloy as going: “Full Mendo”. Mendelsohn has become an in-demand actor by going Full Mendo.
