Joel Kinnaman on Rick Flag’s Screen-Time and Prepping for the Role


While doing another interview for his latest film for Run All Night, this time with Collider he was asked about his role as Rick Flag on Suicide Squad, such questions that were asked were about his facial hair, prepping for the role, his excitement for the film and how much screen time Rick Flag will receive.

While talk to Kinnaman for his upcoming release, Run All Night, he fielded a few questions about Suicide Squad. After noting his facial hair and asking if it’s almost time to shave it off, Kinnaman said:

“Maybe. Maybe not.”

“Yeah, so I’m in Northern Ontario shooting this movie and then I go down to Toronto on the weekends to prepare.”

Here’s what Kinnaman had to say when asked if he’s excited about the film:

“The story’s dope and David is just, he’s cool. You know, I think you’re always afraid when you go into like a big superhero movie that it’s gonna be kinda just action and you’re not gonna be able to just really go to the bottom of the characters, but I think he’s gonna be able to do both, really give it both depth and scale. Yeah, all the conversations that we’ve had so far have been like, ‘Wow. Okay, we’re really going there.’ So that’s fun.”

Hoping to get a better sense of how much screen-time Rick Flag will get, I asked if he’s got a long schedule ahead of him. Kinnaman replied:

“Yeah, it’s long.”
