MTV caught up with Ben Foster to talk about his latest film, “Alpha Dog.” He also mentions playing Angel in X-Men: The Last Stand:
Foster: Yeah, I’m doing “X-Men 3.” I’m playing Angel. You know, instead of considering hate, murder, I get to consider flying. [Everybody laughs.]
MTV: There’s clips of you with those huge wings. It looks amazing. So is the film all done and over with?
Foster: The bulk of “X-Men 3″ has been shot. We’re gonna be going back to do some re-shoots pretty soon, but the scenes that we’ve seen look spectacular.
BF: My favorite action scene playing Angel was my first flying scene. The cool thing about this particular “X-Men” movie is that we’re doing our own stunts. No joke. Hugh Jackman, if you see him moving entirely too fast? It’s him. That’s us doing it. We’re in some of the most cutting-edge wire work available, so I’m doing 80-foot drops head first attached to basically just a jock strap and a metal wire.
