LEVERAGE: Michael Gladis Previews His Guest Spot
July 10, 2011 by Marisa Roffman
TNT’s LEVERAGE is bringing out a strong roster of guest stars this season, and tonight’s brand new episode features former MAD MEN star Michael Gladis as Lee Rockwell.
Quote from the article:
“I had to do a scene with Aldis [Hodge (Hardison)]and Christian [Kane (Eliot)] where — and you can hardly even call it combat — but Christian shoves me and Aldis to the ground in sort of awkward semi-tackle,” he continued. “It was actually minimal, but it was a lot of fun because, you know, [with] different actors, some actors are very fragile people -– stunt performers exist for a reason — but I think it was my first day of filming, when Christian has to give me a shove into Aldis and we have to go down to the ground together, and they [didn’t] know who I am, they don’t know what my character is like and I think they were really relieved when I was like, ‘Guys, I’m 6’2, 220 [pounds]. I used to play sports. You can shove me and we can brawl and it’s fine. We’ll all be fine.’ And those guys are both in great shape so, yeah, it was a non-issue. But they were a little bit tentative at first. They didn’t know if they could actually shove me, or if I would actually be willing to fall to the ground, because some actors are such prisses that they have to kind of suss it out.”
