‘The Last Stand': Forest Whitaker, Rodrigo Santoro Discuss Their ‘Badass’ Characters — VIDEO

The Last Stand

Hollywood’s newest action comedy, The Last Stand, is filled to the brim with “badass” characters. Speaking on behalf of their roles, who are duly doled this description, are Forest Whitaker and Rodrigo Santoro in the below video interview. While Whitaker is forced to fight crime from an office building as a high ranking federal agent, Santoro really gets to get his hands dirty as an Iraq War vet and one member of Sheriff Owens’ (Arnold Schwarzenegger) motley crew of deputies.

In the video below, Whitaker and Santoro delve into some of the harsher aspects of their characters, but also into the softer and more vulnerable moments: Agent Bannister’s (Whitaker) eventual admission of pride for the menace that is Sheriff Owens, and Frank’s (Santoro) methods for coping with the pain the war has instilled upon him. Check out the interview below, and catch The Last Stand in theaters now.

Lance Armstrong’s Oprah Confession: 28 Revealing Quotes

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
