Jeffrey Dean Morgan on ‘Desierto’ and His Role as a Relentless Killer

     October 14, 2016


From writer/director Jonás Cuarón, Desierto is a terrifying suspense-thriller packed with heart-pounding tension, as an unrelenting and deranged killer (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) points his rifle at a group of unarmed men and women at the U.S.-Mexican border. What started as a hopeful journey to seek a better life quickly becomes a nightmare for Moises (Gael García Bernal) as he fights for survival.

At the film’s Los Angeles press day, the undeniably and always charming Jeffrey Dean Morgan spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about playing such an unflinchingly bad guy, how scary it is that people might actually root for him, in our current political climate, whether you can even justify the actions of someone like this, and working with the three dogs who give their own stand-out performance as Tracker. He also talked about how the first episode of Season 7 of The Walking Dead will be tough to take, how he hopes viewers will grow to love to hate Negan, and why Negan is the hero of his own story, as well as how he hopes there will still be an opportunity for him to return as John Winchester before Supernatural wraps up for good.
