Angela Bassett & Aaron Eckhart Talk “Olympus Has Fallen”

Uploaded on Tuesday 12 March 2013


I love, love, love Angela Bassett! She’s one of the sweetest, down-to-earth folks I’ve ever interviewed! And Aaron Eckhart is equally sweet and answered my questions with wit! Both star in the new movie “Olympus Has Fallen” with Gerard Butler doing double-duty as producer and actor. This is from the “Training Day” director, Antoine Fuqua, and let me tell ya, it’s guns ablazing! An all-out action film blessed with fine actors.

Bassett plays the Secret Service Director Lynn Jacobs while Eckhart is our President Benjamin Asher. Both characters are tested when the White House was taken over by an insane terrorist, Kang, played by Rick Yune.

In this interview, we talked about:

*** What got them interested to join the cast of “Olympus Has Fallen”
*** To Aaron – how was it working with Melissa Leo? How they one-up each other in the set!
*** To Angela – working with Morgan Freeman
*** Was the journey in working with director Antoine Fuqua all worth it?
*** How Fuqua motivated them
*** What do they want fans to feel after watching “Olympus Has Fallen”

Have fun!
