Behind enemy lines
Joel Kinnam is an Rick Flag
how does Flag fit into the Squad?
He’s basically holding the team hostage, because they all have explosive implants in their necks. He’s forced by his boss to do this, but he doesn’t necessarily agree and over the course of the movie you see how that allegiance shifts and how he questions his morality.
Flag isn’t a criminal, so is he the hero of the group?
What I really like about the script is it questions what is a hero and what is a bad guy. It takes place in the grey zone more than the black and white. There are some good guys doing some bad things and some really bad guys doing some good things.
We hear the cast got some interesting gifts from jared Leto…
There were rehearsals everyday for a month with all of us except Jared, who was doing his own thing. He’d have the guy playing his assistant deliver these gifts: a live rat for Margot, and then he came in with a dead pig and just threw it down on the table. So me and Jai [Courtney] pulled him back into the room, put the pig around his shoulders, put an apple in his mouth and then Margot put a heart on him and took some pictures and sent them to Mr J. So there was some psychological warfare going on.
