Interview with Brendan McDonough and Miles Teller about the movie “Only the Brave”

If you are having trouble viewing the video above, you can watch it on YouTube.

Bill Gabbert sat down with Brendon McDonough and Miles Teller 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. McDonough was the only member of the 20-person crew to survive. Miles Teller played him in the movie.

We also interviewed Josh Brolin who played Eric Marsh the superintendent of the crew, James Badge Dale who played Jesse James Steed the second in command, and Amanda Marsh, Eric’s wife.

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.

One thought on “Interview with Brendan McDonough and Miles Teller about the movie “Only the Brave””

  1. I am just wondering if any of the money from this movie will be given to the families of the actual Granite Mountain Hotshots?

    I would really appreciate a reply.

    I am a woodland firefighter, and have been for years. I enjoyed the movie, but will feel completely different about it if Hollywood is profiting of the deaths of others family members.

    Thank you, I look forward to hearing from you.
