lauren cohan interview

Mile 22 is one of those action movies where all the characters seem to have catchy and cool names. Take, for instance, Alice Curr, an Overwatch operative without much of a home life who’s ready to call it quits. Curr is played by Lauren Cohan, who’s perhaps best known for her work on a niche television series called The Walking Dead.

Curt is a part of Jimmy Silva’s (Mark Wahlberg) team trying to get a corrupt cop (Iko Uwais) with valuable info out of Southeast Asia, but along the 22-mile journey of gunfire and explosions, everything goes sideways. While filming an action movie sometimes sounds like a rigid experience, that’s not the case for a Peter Berg movie. We visited Bogotá, Colombia, earlier this year, where Cohan told a group of us all about the experience of making a movie with Berg. Read our full Lauren Cohan Mile 22 interview below.

Ronda Rousey signed on to star in Mile 22 over three years ago. The former MMA champion and current WWE star was going to star alongside Iko Uwais (The Raid) in a version of the story that was more of a straight-up martial arts movie, which director Peter Berg was only going to produce. After spending a while in development, though, Mile 22 went from a two-hander to an ensemble pic that’s directed by Berg and led by Mark Wahlberg, playing team leader Jimmy Silva.

Since she first signed on to the movie, Rousey has acted in movies like Furious 7 and The Expendables 3, but she has a much more substantial role in Berg’s movie compared to her previous work. If you’ve seen Rousey fight before, you know she has a presence and intensity just waiting to be unleashed on the big screen with the right role. Hopefully, that role is Sam Snow. Read on for our full Ronda Rousey Mile 22 interview from the film’s set.
