    Dave Miller's role in 'Foxcatcher' is multi-dimensional

    To say Dave Miller is involved in the movie "Foxcatcher" is an understatement.

    His company, Dollamur, participated in the filming of the story of gold-medal-winning wrestlers Mark and Dave Schultz and their involvement at the Foxcatcher Farms training facility owned by multi-millionaire John du Pont by providing singlets and warm-ups used in the movie. What's more, Miller himself has a role in the film, essentially playing himself as the then-executive director of USA Wrestling, negotiating with du Pont.

    Dollamur supplied custom mats for "Foxcatcher"

    From the perspectives as a supplier and actor, Miller is able to provide a behind-the-scenes look into the making of "Foxcatcher" which debuted in a total of six theaters in New York City and Los Angeles on November 14, and is slowly being rolled out in selected cities week-by-week for the next couple months ... a strategy often employed by studios that believe that a particular film could receive Oscar nominations. In the case of "Foxcatcher", that is not a far-fetched possibility. As of this writing, most reviews have been very positive, with speculation that principal actors Channing Tatum (who plays Mark Schultz), Mark Ruffalo (Dave Schultz) and Steve Carell (John du Pont) are in the running for best actor nominations, along with possible best director honors for Bennett Miller, and even possible consideration for best picture.
