Ewan McGregor Talks HAYWIRE and JACK THE GIANT KILLER

Ewan McGregor HAYWIRE and JACK THE GIANT KLLER interview slice

With director Steven Soderbergh’s spy-action pic Haywire opening this Friday, I recently got to sit down with most of the cast to talk about making the movie.  Starring MMA fighter Gina Carano as a burned spy who takes revenge against her handlers, Haywire also stars Channing Tatum, Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Michael Angarano, Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas, and Bill Paxton.  I’ve seen Haywire twice now and it’s fantastic.  On top of Carano’s star-making performance, the action scenes are some of the best I’ve seen in years.   It’s absolutely something you should see in a theater.

During my interview with McGregor we talked about how he got involved in Haywire, his feelings on not being involved in more of the action scenes, karaoke, does he prefer two takes or fifty, and which of his previous movies do people always want to talk to him about.  In addition, McGregor talked about starring in Bryan Singer‘s Jack the Giant Killer which arrives this summer.  Hit the jump to watch.

Finally, if you missed my video interviews with Channing Tatum or Antonio Banderas, click the links. And here’s the first five minutes of Haywire.
