Interview: Contraband star Ben Foster!

Last Updated on November 21, 2023

When I think of Ben Foster, I immediately imagine someone super intense based on his on screen persona and past characters. He is a phenomenal actor, who’s commanding roles in THE MESSENGER, ALPHA DOG, and X-MEN: THE LAST STAND, have shed a definite spotlight on him. His versatility has paved the way for some great roles including his next film CONTRABAND, in which he teams up with Mark Wahlberg, Kate Beckinsale and Giovanni Ribisi.

Inspired by the original Nordic heist thriller REYKJAVIK – ROTTERDAM, Foster plays Wahlberg’s best friend in the film. I had the chance to sit down and chat with the talented Foster last week about CONTRABAND and his next film, 360. He was quite enthusiastic about having filmed 360 in Armenia, so much so that he had his hand inked with Armenian initials. I was naturally super intrigued, since I am of Armenian
descent myself (as is JoBlo). So cool! Check out what Foster had to say.
