"What was your favorite movie to film?"
"Arnold Schwarzenegger: I don't have one. My favorites Terminator 2, Predator, True Lies, and Twins. My favorite movie since I came back is this movie, Sabotage."
"We’re really looking forward to your upcoming film ‘Skin Trade’; what can you tell us about the film and your character Tony?
I am very excited about ‘Skin Trade’, for many reasons. This is the first movie shot by an Asia based organization (outside of China/Hong Kong) in English for international theatrical release. The movie was shot 90 percent on location in Thailand which I was quite proud of, and has a large well known international cast that includes Dolph Lundgren, Ron Perlman, Michael Jai White, Celina Jade, Peter Weller and Cary Hiroyuki Tagawa.
My character has certain personal reasons for wanting to end human trafficking. I play a Thai detective. My character has certain personal reasons for wanting to end human trafficking. At the same time the story line within the movie twists and turns where it takes a while until you realize who is good and who is bad, and there are some very grey areas. Dolph plays a Newark detective and his family is killed by a Serbian Gangster involved in Human Trafficking.
Dolph basically becomes half crazed with revenge, but along the way he realizes that he can make a difference in other ways. Anymore than this and I will give away too much of the story.
Some great photos appeared on the ‘Skin Trade’ Facebook page with you and Michael Jai White sparring. You both have different fighting styles. Did you teach him any moves or vice versa?
Michael Jai White is simply amazing. He is an expert in 7 styles of martial arts. Our styles are very different. We are also close personal friends and often workout together. We have certainly picked up ideas from each other. We are in touch quite regularly so I imagine that our collaboration will continue.
You’re known for such physical roles, did you face any major challenges or injuries during the filming of ‘Skin Trade’?
The attention to safety was key in this production and the amount of practice before any heavy action scenes insured that we were safe. Diyan Hristov was in charge of action and stunts along with Top, one of my choreographers. Diyan handled ‘Expendables 2 and 3′ and the sequel to ’300′. With a professional like that there is little risk."
"...They’re going to have to wait a while. I don’t want to do it for three years, maybe. I do have a concept in mind,” he said. “If this one is two hours after ‘The Raid’ finished, ‘Raid 3′ starts three hours before ‘The Raid 2′ finishes. So you go back in time a little and then branch off for a different story.”
