Foxcatcher Director Makes Some Toilet Paper Ads


Bennett Miller, who nabbed a Best Director Oscar nomination for his work on Foxcatcher, is trying his hand at something a little less severe: toilet paper. Miller recently helmed a trio of Quilted Northern commercials, which feature no actual actors (sorry, Channing Tatum fans), but rather a toy alligator, a rabbit figurine, and a photo of "great-grandpa Thaddeus." (The Hollywood Reporter writes that the campaign is the brainchild of New York–based ad agency Droga5, in case you're interested.) It's too bad they couldn’t work Steve Carell’s fake nose into the commercial somehow.
