Your upcoming film Captain Battle: Legacy War - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character?

 

Here's a shocker: Captain Battle is an actual comic book hero from the 1940's. When I first heard about the film and Captain Battle, I thought it was a complete rip-off of Captain America. But I was surprised to find that he actually existed in the comic book world and although he has similarities to Captain America - his story is different. So think of the mega blockbuster Captain America and then take away $200 million budget and big special effects and then add in the present day and some hot, half naked women and bing bang boom - Captain Battle: Legacy War pops out. Generalization here but Captain Battle is definitely a man of honor and justice and will kick ass to defend it.

 

As I suspect that you are not secretly a superhero in real life (but of course you wouldn't tell) and have thus little first-hand experience in superheroing - how do you prepare for a role like this?

 

I may or may not be an authentic super hero in my spare time in my own living room, in my underwear and alone on a Friday night.

 

Luckily I feel like I've been prepping for a superhero role for my whole life. Sounds corny but I think it's true. Heavy action films are my specialty and I generally try and live by certain moral and ethical codes that I think share some of the same characteristics as some of the popular superheroes.

 

One thing I can tell you I did to prepare was that I shaved my chest. When's the last time you saw a hairy chested super hero??

 

In your personal life, are you at all into superheroes/comicbooks, and prior to filming, were you even aware of the relatively obscure original Captain Battle-comics from the 1940's?

 

I'm not a big comic book guy. I was into it a bit growing up but it never stuck. I remember when I was about 12 or 13 and I spent like $10 on a certain Spider-Man comic and I left the bag at the arcade. When I went back to get it I saw some kid walking out of the arcade with it and I ended up chasing him and cornering him in the bathroom to get it back. I think that was the last straw for me and comics, they were dangerous to my health.

 

I touched upon this before but yeah, I had no idea about Captain Battle. There's probably a hundred comic book dudes that I've never heard of and they probably have some awesome super abilities. I'm guessing he never really took off because he wasn't a Marvel hero and/or maybe Captain America was just like a suped up version of Captain Battle or something. I do think Captain America is a little more kid-friendly than Battle. I think Battle is more of a rugged guy, not so manicured or as I used to say growing up, not as 'goody two shoes'.

 

How did you get hooked up with the project, and what drew you to it in the first place?

 

I got hooked up as Captain Battle through a friend of mine, Marlene McCohen. We had just met and were working on a project together (Revelations, which is shit in your pants awesome) and she was already attached to Captain Battle and knew the casting directors and producers. She basically did all the talking and presented me in a good light to the men in charge. Whatever she said worked and I was happily presented the role.

 

How often does one get to play a superhero?? I had to take this role. I knew and had worked with a few of the filmmakers, the production company and some of the other actors on other projects, and it was a no-brainer for me. That and the fact that it was a superhero, I got to do my own stunts and it was a superhero - oh yeah, and it was a superhero, I had to do this.

 

You are also starring in the webseries Revelations, which has premiered only just. A few words about that one and your character in it?

 

I can't tell you enough how awesome Revelations is going to be and how stoked I am about the whole project. The story of Revelations takes place immediately after the Biblical rapture and follows my character and another as we try and figure out what to do. I play Jeremy, an ex-Marine who has hallucinations or visions about a mysterious cabin tucked away in a forest. I want to find that cabin because I think it has our answers. All the while the Earth is overrun with Demons who hunt for humans. Think The Walking Dead meets Stephen King's The Stand.

 

Again, your character in Revelations finds himself in a situation you have almost certainly never been in (unless of course I overslept the last Rapture) - so how did you prepare? And which character did you actually put more of yourself into/find more of yourself in, Jeremy in Revelations or Captain Battle?

 

You'll love this one. I've been preparing for this kind of role my whole life - haha! You may ask how the hell did my life prepare me for a character that fights off demons and the end of the world - and it'd be a good question that I don't know how to answer. I'm somewhat introverted by nature in the way that I feel most comfortable and productive alone or with just small groups of friends. Some say the more the merrier and I just am the complete opposite, generally speaking of course. I think Jeremy in Revelations is like that too. So when the end of the world comes, it's not as bad or as hard to deal with for Jeremy to be alone and having to survive as it might be for others. Another thing is that I think we both take pride with the responsibility of helping those who can't help themselves, that is if they're at least actively trying.

 

I found a large part of myself in both roles actually. 'Doing what's right, striving for solid moral character, seeking virtue' - those are things I hold important. Anyway, I don't want to keep rambling on this. If you made it all the way through this response - you're very patient person - well done!

 

How did you actually get involved with Revelations in the first place?

 

Just auditioned for it. Old run-of-the-mill story here. I was the very first guy to audition for the role and I knew I had a solid audition but being the very first actor, I figured that they were seeing so many guys and surely I'd be forgotten by the end of the day.

Side Note: You can watch the first two episodes of Revelations on www.RevelationsTheSeries.com.

More will be released there and on Youtube throughout the next 5 months.

 

What can you tell us about Revelations' director Robert Michael Ryan, and what was your collaboration like?

 

Robert is an awesome fella! I love him for his creativity and vision on this project. He's laid back but particular enough to know what he needs and wants - a fantastic trait for a director, and person too. I think we work well together, he's open to ideas but honestly, he already has a good mind on the project.

 

In all honesty, how much fun is it to shoot demons and Nazi zombies?

 

All you can imagine that it is. The actors who play the demons in Revelations are really cool guys and I give them so much praise for living in that makeup. And one of the lead Nazis in battle is one of my really good friends and it was a ton of fun fighting with him and beating the hell out of each other. Honestly, I do feel bad sometimes getting to be the hero, always ultimately winning in the end. I think all actors should get to do the ass kicking.

I just got cast in a cool feature coming out in 2013 called Alienate - http://www.alienatemovie.com. Not too many details on that just yet but I'll let you know.

 

I'd definitely like to mention an awesome Sci-Fi/Action/Drama flick I did last year in NYC called Terminal Legacy [interview with Terminal Legacy-director Brian Kazmarck - click here]. I really think it's going to be a fantastic film and it's one that I would be a fan of even if i had nothing to do with it. Here's the trailer for it: https://vimeo.com/40675637 or http://www.terminallegacythemovie.com. It's an indie film that deserves some attention and I hope the right people see this one because it's too cool to sit on a shelf somewhere for eternity.
