‘Iron Man 3’ star James Badge Dale talks ‘World War Z’ saying Brad Pitt is cool

While promoting the zombie apocalypse film World War Z starring Brad Pitt, James Badge Dale talked with Newsday about shooting zombies with Pitt and working with all of these big name stars on blockbusters.

James Badge Dale World War Z“…the job is to believe these moments, [and] believe these imaginary circumstances, when [the people portraying] all the zombies were actually these dancers. And they choreographed movement for weeks and months beforehand. And they would do some weird stuff, man. When they came at you, and when you saw that look in their eyes. It’s the stuff out of your nightmares … [Although] I think there’s a video tape of me at 3 a.m. trying to do the Michael Jackson “Thriller” dance with a bunch of the guys playing the zombies. [Laughs].”

With Iron Man 3, World War Z and the upcoming work on The Lone Ranger, he had discuss what it’s like to work with these big names.

“I don’t think people know how cool Brad Pitt is. He’s just cool, and you just want to hang out with the guy. He’s smart, he’s funny, he has a great self-deprecating sense of humor, and he worked hard. He gives everything to his work. He’s another one of those guys who make people feel comfortable.

If you look at Johnny Depp, [“Iron Man” star] Robert Downey Jr., Brad Pitt — I’ll tell you what, every big actor I’ve ever worked with, you walk away realizing this wasn’t given to any of these guys. They put in a lot of hard work [and] blood, sweat and tears, and they’re there for a reason. And they try to be as kind and as humble and giving to everyone else around them.”

World War Z opens June 21 and The Lone Ranger arrives on July 3.
