James Badge Dale Talks The Pacific  
The actor who played Robert Leckie in the hit HBO mini-series talks about the incredible filming experience, Rubicon, The Conspirator and more.

If you ever wondered what happened to the actor who played Simon in the coveted movie Lord of the Flies, you'll find out that he grew up into one fine actor. James Badge Dale made his feature film debut in Lord of the Flies and didn't resurface in front of the cameras until 2002 with a guest spot on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, which lead to recurring roles on 24, The Black Donnellys and the starring role of Will Travers in the fantastic AMC series Rubicon. The versatile actor also starred in the critically acclaimed HBO mini-series The Pacific earlier this year, which will be released in wonderful new DVD and Blu-ray boxed sets on November 2. I recently had the opportunity to chat with James Badge Dale (a.k.a Badge, as he asked me to call him) over the phone about this World War II mini-series, and here's what he had to say.

The full article is here at MovieWeb - Rubicon does come up in the interview.

Badge Dale didn't have a recurring role on "24". He was a series regular during Season Three.

Thanks a bunch for posting this article! It was an enjoyable read. JBD is a pretty cool guy. :)

I certainly do hope that 'Rubicon' gets renewed. I think there are plenty of stories left to tell, and we definitely need some kind of resolution. It would be a pity to just give up on it now. But right now, I still have faith that AMC will give it a chance.

And I didn't realize that JBD is in The Conspirator! O_O So, both he and James McAvoy are in it? Okay, I'm definitely there. I already love JM, so having JBD in it is an added bonus for me. :D

I think I'm one of the few here who hasn't seen The Pacific yet, but now that I know it's being released, I'm going to try and check it out. :)

No problem! I'm glad you enjoyed reading it.

I'm still hoping that Rubicon gets renewed too. And I'm really excited for The Conspirator, I was interested in the subject already but it's really neat that JBD will be in it.
