is one of those actors known as a "scene stealer." With unforgettable roles inHalf-Nelson
,The Hurt Locker
(his debut), and more notable films than I can list, the 33-year-old actor has built up quite an impressive filmography in just ten years time. His latest film - the heist flickMan on a Ledge
starring Sam Worthington, Ed Harris, and Jamie Bell - puts him right on the edge of an impressive ensemble doing what he does best...stealing scenes.
I recently sat down with Mackie to talk about Man on a Ledge and the film's old school appeal, if he himself is afraid of heights, and I even managed to sneak a question in there about an upcoming project that's high on my anticipated list; the big screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
