James Badge Dale Talks IRON MAN 3, WORLD WAR Z And 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY
James Badge Dale talks about a deleted scene from Iron Man 3, shares his thoughts on what it was like to work on World War Z, and even takes the time to comment on the recently announced 24: Live Another Day. Check it out!
In a recent interview with Zap2It, James Badge Dale was asked to share his most memorable experience on the set of Iron Man 3 and it turns out that it was actually a heavily improvised scene with Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan) which didn't ultimately make it into the final cut of the movie. "Unfortunately this whole scene got cut from the movie, but there was a scene in the beginning where [Jon] Favreau comes out and he notices me and Guy Pearce at the AIM Institute and I'm sitting on Tony Stark's car, on the hood. It's about my second or third day of work, and I'm a big fan of Favreau, you know? So, I'm a little nervous and he's like "Hey, how you doing?" He's just a really nice guy. So, I go up to Shane Black [the director] before we start to shoot and I say, "Listen, I know Favreau's going to want to play around. Just let me know when you let him off-leash. Just let me know beforehand when you let him go," and he goes, "Yeah, okay." We sit down and do one take and Favreau is so off-script. I mean, he's doing monologues, dissertations, it's so all over the place. I'm sitting there and I don't know what's going on. It was hilarious and beautiful. So, they yell cut and Shane Black comes over to me and goes, "I guess he's off-leash." Hopefully it will make it onto the Blu-ray!
"I saw it. The movie looks brilliant. It looks beautiful," the actor said of another big blockbuster he will star in this summer, World War Z. As you may already know, there's been a lot of talk of problems with the movie (including the fact that the ending needed to be totally rewritten and reshot). However, that's not a concern to Dale and he's obviously very pleased with what he's seen of it so far. "I know there's been a lot of talk about production issues, but that really got blown out of proportion. When we were working on it, we knew we were working on something very special. I'm really happy with the movie and happy with the way it came together. I saw it at 11 in the morning and people were jumping out of their seats at 11am, so I think that's a good sign. I don't know much about testing and everything, but that passed my test." As for the recently announced 24: Live Another Day, the actor didn't reveal whether or not he's been asked to return, but it certainly doesn't sound like it! "I know, I saw that! [laughs]," he said of the news. "I love that show, I loved working on that show, I love Kiefer [Sutherland]. I think it's cool, I don't know what they're going to do, cause it's a limited run? Are they going to skip an hour for traffic? It's a lot more realistic now. We used to get places fast, man! We got from Long Beach to Downtown LA in, like, 10 minutes in one episode."
