Viola Davis, Won't Back Down



Two-time Oscar nominee (The Help, Doubt) and two-time Tony winner (King Hedley II, Fences 2010 revival) Viola Davis stars as spunky Nona Alberts, a teacher in a failing Pennsylvania school in the issue-oriented Won’t Back Down opposite Maggie Gyllenhaal. Davis opens up about her career, Hollywood casting and how she “got” Nona as a woman, not an issue.
