Who is Jerry Bruckheimer?

Is the man behind the work really all about the work?

Variety‘s David S. Cohen managed to spend some time with the producer in Bruckheimer’s expansive, loftlike digs in Santa Monica. In keeping with Bruckheimer’s low-key persona, even his headquarters are inconspicuous, with the only outward sign of Hollywood power being the coterie of valets who await your command. Beyond the entertainment he produces, what we do know about Bruckheimer is that he sprang from scrappy roots in Detroit, idolized Red Wing Hall of Famer Gordie Howe, figured out how to get ahead in advertising at an amazing clip, considers photography a creative outlet and gravitated toward classics in the mold of “The Great Escape” and “The French Connection.” We also know that no detail escapes his grasp. After all, as the architect of a multibillion-dollar film and TV empire, how could it be any other way?
