Oscar–nominated film Foxcatcher tells the tale of crazed billionaire John du Pont during the 1988 Olympic wrestling trials. He eventually murders one of the wrestlers he sponsored after drama at the Olympics. But before all that John du Pont attended good old Penn. He’s pictured here with his fellow Zeta Psi brothers, better known as Zete. In our defense, du Pont didn’t even finish his sophomore year here. In fact, he graduated from University of Miami five years after his brief stint at Penn. We wonder why Penn has been staying away from this particular association.
The film is nominated for Best Original Screenplay and Best Make Up & Styling, as well as for Best Director (Bennett Miller), Best Actor (Steve Carell as John du Pont) and Best Supporting Actor (Mark Ruffalo as David Shultz).
Correction: An earlier version of this article said that John du Pont didn't finish his freshman year at Penn. He finished freshman year at Penn and transferred during his sophomore year.
