Fresh off his recent notable and memorable turns in Game of Thrones, Narcos, and Kingsmen: The Golden Circle, Pedro Pascal is taking on another powerful role in The Equalizer 2. The sequel to 2014’s The Equalizer features the return of Antoine Fuqua in the director’s chair and Denzel Washington reprising the role of Robert McCall. Pascal plays Dave York, an old government buddy of McCall’s who is surprised to find his old friend alive and well after his reported death. Pascal’s York is aided by McCall as they investigate the murder of a close friend.
The film includes some violent hand to hand fight scenes, great action sequences, and explores the themes of redemption and coming home. Also, no Antoine Fuqua action movie would be complete without some overarching philosophical concept driving the main character’s story and this film is no different.
At the press day for the movie, I got to sit down with Pedro Pascal to ask him about working with Washington and Fuqua, snuck in a couple Wonder Woman 1984 questions, and what franchise sequel he’d like to tackle next.
Check out what he had to say in the player above and below is exactly what we talked about followed by a few images.
- What was more intimidating? Fighting The Mountain on Game of Thrones or acting opposite Denzel Washington?
