Get ready for an action packed adventure when you see Mile 22! CIA operative James Silva, played by Mark Wahlberg,  leads a small but lethal paramilitary team on an urgent and dangerous mission. They must transport a foreign intelligence asset from an American embassy in Southeast Asia to an airfield for extraction — a distance of 22 miles.

Damnit Maurie sat down with the cast of this adrenaline filled movie that really brings out a lot of anger in Mark Wahlberg. When asked how he channels so much anger he says “It’s always the 14 year old daughter who can make me crazy. If I need a boost I just call home and talk to my child and she’ll tell me how much she hates me and how much I ruin everything and it will set me off. But really, great material and a great character.”

Mark always plays such a touch guy in all his movies, Maurie asked him if he turns down roles just so the world doesn’t see him as anything other than a tough guy “I think that was important to me at the early stages of my career, but once a movie like Boogie Nights came out i can’t worry about what the guys in the neighbourhood are going to think.”

Ronda Rousey & Lauren Cohen told us about the training they went though for this movie as there is a lot of guns training and physical training needed “The training was pretty detailed! We drilled it for so long. it was also a chance for us to bond as a team and that was pretty awesome”

When asked if being a movie star was one of Ronda Rousey’s ultimate goals she tells us that her goal is to be a mom! who also says “It was actually an amazing time, it was a joy to do what we were doing and be around the people we worked with. The best of the best to learn from” Ronda says about the experience on Mile 22.
