With director Asger Leth‘s (Ghosts of Cité Soleil) Man on a Ledge opening next weekend, I recently got to speak with most of the cast about making the movie. The film centers on an ex-cop (Sam Worthington) convicted of a crime he didn’t commit who stands on the ledge of a Manhattan building, threatening to kill himself. However, what appears to be a suicide attempt is something else altogether. The film also stars Jamie Bell, Anthony Mackie, Elizabeth Banks, Ed Burns, Titus Welliver, Genesis Rodriguez, Kyra Sedgwick, and Ed Harris.
During my very fun interview with Anthony Mackie (who plays Worthington’s former partner), we talked about everything from video games (speficially Madden Football) to how he got involved in Man on a Ledge. In addition, we talked about his hatred of Tom Brady, karaoke, how many takes he likes to do, The Hurt Locker, and what is he working on now. Hit the jump to watch.
NOTE: This interview was done over a week ago. Which is why we’re not talking about the AFC and NFC Championship games. Also, look for more video interviews with the cast everyday this week.
