David Ayer’s Fury is one of the Fall’s most anticipated films, and for good reason. It features a terrific cast and tells the exciting story of a World War II tank crew that ventures into Germany to take out what is left of the Nazis. Among the actors in the cast is Michael Pena, who plays Trini Garcia, the tank’s driver and one of the 350,000 Mexican Americans who served during World War II.
Pena has proven to be one of the most versatile actors working today, having played a wide variety of roles in movies like the Oscar winning Crash, Observe and Report, American Hustle and World Trade Center. So, it was a real honor talking with him when he arrived at the Sony Pictures Studio in Culver City, California, to discuss Fury during the film’s press day.
Over the course of our interview, we spoke about the boot camp that he and the other actors went through before filming, how his working relationship with Ayer has evolved since they worked together on End Of Watch, and what we should expect from Ant-Man.
Check out our exclusive interview in the video above and be sure to catch Fury when it rolls into theatres this Friday.
