Recently he composed the soundtrack for Green Book, for which he’s been nominated for a Critic’s Choice Award. He also taught the film’s star, Mahershala Ali (True Detective), how to play the piano for the movie. The film centers around Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class African-American pianist who’s about to embark on a concert tour in the Deep South in 1962. He hires Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), a tough-talking bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, to be his driver and for protection.
