Kate (Dakota Johnson) and Ben (Nat Faxon)

Nat Faxon talks ‘Ben and Kate’ and Oscar opportunities

Nat Faxon has a lot going these days. He plays Ben in the new Citytv series Ben and Kate, opposite Lucy Punch, and he recently finished production directing his first film, The Way, Way Back. What some people don’t know though is that he’s also an Academy Award-winning screenwriter, earning the Oscar for The Descendants, which he co-wrote with director Alexander Payne, and Community star Jim Rash.
