On the advice he received from former members of Britain’s Special Air Service and a retired Navy SEAL about bar fights on the set of Kong: Skull Island: “If you get into a bar fight, the best thing to do is to pretend you don’t know what you’re doing and run, get the hell out of there. That’s what he said. You don’t want to get yourself in trouble.”
On what he would say if someone cut in front of him at a bar: “I’d say very politely, ‘Excuse me, I’ve been waiting X amount of time,’ Usually people are pretty good about that. That’s kind of social protocol. You don’t break that rule. People are like, ‘Okay, you go ahead.'”
On being in an action film as the hero: “Action has always been a part of me. In the Marvel films, it’s hidden in the playfulness and mischief of that character. But actually, there’s several one-to-ones with Captain America and Thor where the action requires choreography. But (Kong) puts all of that center stage.
On his character, James Conrad: “It’s like, this is the guy you want on the ground in a jungle. It’s lovely to be a hero.”
