Michael Ealy Talks UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING, THINK LIKE A MAN, and More

Michael Ealy UNDERWORLD AWAKENING and THINK LIKE A MAN interview slice

With directors Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein’s Underworld: Awakening opening this weekend, I recently got to sit down with most of the cast to talk about making the movie.  Kate Beckinsale returns as Selene, “who escapes imprisonment to find herself in a world where humans have discovered the existence of both Vampire and Lycan clans, and are conducting an all-out war to eradicate both immortal species.”  Stephen Rea, Michael Ealy, Theo James, India Eisley, and Charles Dance also star.

During my interview with Ealy we talked about how he got involved in the Underworld franchise, did he watch the previous films, was he disappointed to play a human character, deleted scenes, and how much changed between when he first got the script to being on set.  In addition, we also talked about video games, karaoke, the difference between acting on a TV show and in the movies, and what else he has coming up in 2012.  Hit the jump to watch.

Finally, here’s my video interview with Kate Beckinsale for Underworld: Awakening.
