Behind the Scenes Look at The Taking of Pelham 123
05.27.09 by REELZ
There's lots of new footage and interviews with the stars in ET Online's sneak peek at Tony Scott's reboot of the classic hostage thriller The Taking of Pelham 123. The highlight of the piece is the interview with John Travolta, who is sporting a truly skeezy-looking mustache. and looking every inch the bad guy. He tells ET that he really enjoyed playing the evil mastermind:
Playing a bad guy is always a freeing experience -- because you don't have the same envelope of restrictions that you have playing a good guy. Good guys restrain themselves. They kind of have their moral fiber cut out for them in varying degrees. And a bad guy you can create your own moral fiber. And it's usually a wide envelope of behavior. So I can be as wild as I want...
In the accompanying footage we get to see some pretty good examples of exactly how wild that can be. Clearly not a man you want to mess with. Unfortunately, it seems to take the authorities a few bodies to figure this out.
