Brendan said on Sunday that his confidence is up amid the glowing reviews he’s received for his work in the forthcoming film

‘So often, I have just felt like a working actor who was glad to have a job: “What do you got? I’ll do it,”‘ he said, according to the Toronto Star. ‘And that’s a different guy than who I am right now.’

He added: ‘In recent years, when I was a bit more reticent to step forward – have a life with kids and an oldest son with special needs, another kid who’s going to be a senior now and another one who is [learning] to drive and he’s picking up guitar – I think it just gave me a sense of purpose that I don’t know that I would have appreciated as a younger man.’

Brendan was later awarded with the TIFF Tribute Award for Performance presented by IMDbPro.
