We love when we get a chance to chat with some of Hollywood’s fastest rising stars, and recently, we got to do just that when we met with Joel Kinnaman to talk about his new film Run All Night, which sees him team up with actors like Liam Neeson, Ed Harris, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Common.

In the film, Kinnaman plays Mike Conlon, a New York limo driver/family man who finds his life turned upside down after a deadly encounter with the trigger-happy son of a brutal crime boss (Harris).  With nowhere else to turn, he relies on the help of his estranged father (Neeson) to evade the attempts on his life and clear his name, even with a psychotic assassin hot on his trail.

You can check out our interview below, where we cover a variety of topics, and check out Run All Night when it hits theaters this Friday.


During the interview, we discuss:

  • Working with Neeson and Harris
  • TV acting versus film acting
  • The physical aspect of action films
  • His role in The Suicide Squad
