Jennifer Morrison Interview for “WARRIOR”
Independent Films, Talk Shows, Interviews, Film Profiles
I love the super-sweet and very real Jennifer Morrison. She effectively embodies Tess Conlon, the supportive wife of Brendan, played by Joel Edgerton. Morrison is the heart of the film.
In this interview, we talked about:
*** Her attraction to the project
*** Was she an MMA fan prior to making the movie?
*** Working with Joel Edgerton
*** Grown men will cry!
*** The movie is about “what you’re fighting for” so what is her passion right now? What does Jennifer Morrison fight for?
Transcripts / Production notes / Scripts
An ex-Marine haunted by a tragic past, Tommy Riordan returns to his hometown of Pittsburgh and enlists his father, a recovered alcoholic and his former coach, to train him for a mixed martial arts tournament awarding the biggest purse in the history of the sport. As Tommy blazes a violent path towards the title prize, his brother, Brendan, a former MMA fighter unable to make ends meet as a public school teacher, returns to the amateur ring to provide for his family. Even though years have passed, recriminations and past betrayals keep Brendan bitterly estranged from both Tommy and his father. But when Brendan's unlikely rise as an underdog sets him on a collision course with Tommy, the two brothers must finally confront the forces that tore them apart, all the while waging the most intense, winner-takes-all battle of their lives.
