Exclusive 1:1 interview with Olympus Has Fallen stars Dylan McDermott and Rick Yune
On March 22nd, FilmDistrict will release OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN, a throwback to the action movies of the 90s where one man is pitted against dozens of terrorists and holds the fate of the country in his hands. Gerard Butler stars as disgraced former Presidential guard Mike Banning, who finds himself trapped within the White House after a foreign invasion has destroyed much of the capitol.
In the film, Rick Yune plays the leader of the insurgents, a sly and brutal man who uses wounds from his past to justify his bold act of terror. Dylan McDermott plays a Secret Service agent whose loyalty is in question and who may be ultimately be key to the outcome of the situation. I spoke to the two actors about playing bad guys with a cause, fighting Gerard Butler and who their favorite big screen villains are.
I love what Gary Oldman did in The Professional..
