Halle's co-star in Things We Lost in the Fire is Benicio Del Toro, whose breakout role came in the star-studded 2000 film Traffic, for which he won an Oscar® for best supporting actor. He's also wowed audiences with unforgettable performances in The Usual Suspects and 21 Grams.
Working with Benicio was one of the biggest reasons Halle wanted this role. "For about at least five years before we had this chance to work together, people would always say, 'Who do you want to work with?' And I would always say, 'Benicio Del Toro,'" she says, "never really imagining how that would happen or if it would come to pass."
