Ray Stevenson has a knack for battling mobsters. He took on Jigsaw’s army in Punisher: War Zone back in 2008 and now, he’s targeting the real deal, Cleveland’s criminal underworld. In Kill the Irishman Stevenson stars as Danny Greene, a mobster who one day decides enough is enough and that he wants to run the show himself. When he wasn’t setting off car bombs or putting guns to his enemies’ heads, Greene fought for dockworkers’ rights via the International Longshoremen’s Association, tended to his family and enjoyed jogging. He wasn’t all that bad.
In fact, that’s one of the elements that drew Stevenson in to begin with; amidst all of the crimes Greene committed, he still maintained a code of conduct and managed to show a bit of heart, too. In honor of the film’s March 11th release, Stevenson sat down to tell us all about his experience making this film. He touched on everything from developing the character to working with the impressive ensemble cast, which includes Val Kilmer, Christopher Walken, Linda Cardellini and more, as well as his new hair and mustache. Check out the highlights from the roundtable interview in the video below.
