Interview with James Badge Dale about “Only the Brave”

If you are having trouble watching the video above, you can see it on YouTube.

Bill Gabbert sat down with James Badge Dale the day of the red carpet screening in Phoenix of “Only the Brave”, which is about the Granite Mountain Hotshots. In 2013, 19 members of the crew perished in the Yarnell Hill Fire south of Prescott, Arizona.

Mr. Dale played Jesse James Steed, the second in command on the crew.

We also interviewed Josh Brolin who played Eric Marsh the superintendent of the crew, and Amanda Marsh, Eric’s wife.

On Wednesday October 18 we will have an interview with Brendon McDonough and Miles Teller. Mr. McDonough was the only member of the 20-person crew to survive. Miles Teller played him in the movie.

And on Thursday October 19 you will be able to see the interview with country music star Dierks Bentley who co-wrote “Hold the Light”, a song featured in the film.

The movie opens October 20, 2017.

  1. I worked on this with James Badge Dale. He put so much into the character and worked very hard to get it right. It was a delight to watch him at work. Thank you for sharing this interview.
