Ed Harris who was previously rumored to be in the running to play Rick Flag Sr. in Suicide Squad, who’s now doing press for his current film Run All Tonight co-starring with Joel Kinnaman, who has been confirmed to be playing Rick Flag Jr., was asked during an interview with Screen Rant on whether the rumors were true of his casting. This is what Harris had this to say:
“I don’t know anything about that,” Harris replied. After a moment he then followed that up with, “Joel mentioned that there was something he wanted me to look at, or think about doing, but I don’t know if that was it or not.”
Within the same article by Screen Rant, Joel Kinnaman who has confirmed that he’s officially playing Rick Flag Jr., spoke on Suicide Squad and what he loves about the script for the film.
“I love the script. It’s super entertaining and David Ayer is a really interesting director. You know there’s a lot of flashy directors who are good with the camera, but when you get people who are from another aspect of filmmaking into a director’s role, you’re always very happy if it’s a writer or an editor, because those are the storytellers, and David is really a storyteller… Even though this is a massive superhero production it’s an amazing story.
“The conversations we’ve had about the characters are really interesting, and he really gets to the bottom of things. Sometimes you’re worried, if you’re going to do a film like that, that it’s just going to be superhero fun but nothing’s going to go under the surface. But here I feel like we can get both.”
