Looks like another great film by Mr. Eastwood. I'm looking forward to seeing it.

Saw the trailer when we went to TLJ a couple weeks ago. Looks intense, but with a lot of backstory on the guys.

I think casting the actual three individuals involved was an interesting choice. It's something that's seldom seen.

True. What's another movie that had the people involved play themselves?

I can only think of Audie Murphy.

Besides Audie Murphy, I can't think of any other main characters in biographical movies like this, at least off the top of my head.

Act of Valor would be close, with real Navy Seals playing themselves in fictional scenes somewhat based on real events.

There were a few films with folks in supporting or background roles who had really been there, like The Longest Day. And HBO's miniseries Generation Kill had some of the smaller roles played by the actual Marines involved.

I guess Howard Stern in Private Parts might count, since it's biographical. Although he was already an established entertainer. These three guys are unknowns, outside of their actions on that day.

(I'm not counting famous actors who play themselves in various fictional films, like John Malkovich in Being John Malcovich or Bill Murray in Zombieland.)

I hope those three guys get a nice paycheck from this movie.

I'm definitely going to see it. I'm heading off to see '12 Strong' in an hour.

That's a great decision. Maybe Clint knows he can get what he needs from the guys with his directing.

On other stories, I can imagine how the conversation goes:

Actual person: Why can't I play me?

Movie producer: You just don't look like you. We need someone for the movie who looks like you only better.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual."

Clint Eastwood makes film after film after film. Got to be the hardest working guy in Hollywood, AND he is 90 plus years old.

Old Clint doesn't have much time left on this earth, and he seems to want to leave his mark on cinema. Hats off to him.

I think Clint Eastwood is permanently blackballed by ALL liberals to include the MSM movie reviewer types for DARING to insult their Messiah Obama with that empty chair routine.

The issue was the script. Took a 30 min movie and stretched it out to 90 min. I will see for myself tomorrow. But from the trailer a few parts do seem a little cheese-dick.
