My Fun Interview with Sam Worthington for MAN ON A LEDGE!
Independent Films, Movie Reviews, Interviews, Film Profiles
Mister Sam Worthington and I are practically BFFs now. This is my third time talking to the actor, and once upon a time, when I interviewed him for TERMINATOR SALVATION, the then little-known actor was very happy to see me. He said he was a fan of my videos.
Then for the movie THE DEBT, Worthington said he still loves me now that he’s super-famous thanks to AVATAR and CLASH OF THE TITANS.
Now, with MAN ON A LEDGE, the actor still said he likes me, and he’s a big fan because I make him laugh, and we had a great time with this interview where we talked about:
*** Why did he want to be the MAN ON A LEDGE?
*** How did he conquer his fear of heights?
*** The immediate nature of the film
*** Making an unabashedly popcorn film
*** A different kind of action movie for Worthington
*** The term MAN ON A LEDGE
*** Working with Elizabeth Banks
*** WRATH OF A TITANS tease! What do we have to look forward to?
*** What’s his biggest fear? HE HAS A LOT!
