These “Midway” Cast Have Shared Their Stories Exclusively to DA MAN

On November 8, 2019, “Midway”, an American war film based on the attack of Pearl Harbor and Battle of Midway during World War II, was first released worldwide.

Directed by Roland Emmerich, this passion project features an ensemble cast of A-list Hollywood celebrities; Nick Jonas, Darren Criss, Luke Evans, Patrick Wilson, Woody Harrelson, Dennis Quaid, Aaron Eckhart, Mandy Moore, and more. It holds a record of being one of the most expensive independent films of all time, with a production budget that costs $100 million.

Among the A-listers, DA MAN spotted four actors that were featured in DA MAN Magazine throughout the years. Darren Criss, Patrick Wilson, Alexander Ludwig, and Peter Shinkoda have shared their exclusive stories to DA MAN. Revisit the interview:

He talks to Ronald Liem about the path his diverse career has followed and what he has learned along the way. Read the exclusive interview.
