Michael Mann was supposed to come speak to one of my film school classes spring quarter. The day he was supposed to show up, our instructors told us he'd been pulled off to do a commercial for a high profile company. We were all disappointed and a bit surprised. A television commercial?
Well, now we've all seen that commercial. And you know what? It's not bad. Personally, I'd like to see a director's cut which intersperses this on-field footage with Steven Jackson and Shawn Merriman sitting down at a diner, having a chat.
Merriman: You know, we are sitting here, you and I, like a couple of regular fellas. You do what you do, and I do what I gotta do...But I tell you, if it's between you and some poor bastard whose wife you're gonna turn into a widow, brother, you are going down.
Jackson: There is a flip side to that coin...we've been face to face, yeah. But I will not hesitate. Not for a second.
