-- This a project that really took my breath the way -- a lot of people tell you the same thing and if you missed it this is an opportunity of a lifetime because act of valor.
Is now available in not only dvd but Blu-ray.
You've got to pick it up you have to watch and I have.
Really the privilege now of introducing you to work Denver who is it in the US navy -- -- out who stars -- an act of valor.
These were real seals.
In this production.
Now you're an actor will have to ask you if you're gonna be on Dancing With The Stars or anything now this and Scott Scott and pronounced -- -- this man.
Is the director of active -- let me start with you Scott and ask you what was it like to work win.
These tremendous heroes who had no acting experience.
You know that's really the most professional man and unfortunately.
They've kind of ruined it for me for the rest of my directing career probably is that.
They've they were at such high level -- such despite -- -- people I've ever been apart we know they take direction well they just get the job done well and and they're the most easiest guys to work with these -- -- can -- be over here and guess where there are already there before you can say so and what's different about this new release.
What's really -- for me about the Blu-ray is a couple things us and that I think you're great -- -- interviews on them have never been seen before so.
An interview that it Rourke and all the other guys before we shot the film to really find out who they were what they were about them we decided let's put these on the blue -- there.
Fantastic and the other thing is.
For us think we really wanted to give back and the best way we could do was we tied the blurry until portion of every DI dvd and blew it spot.
Goes to operation homefront and that is a great charity that respect all the.
We all can give a little something here but I -- so work.
Do you think the public reacted to this and obviously when -- Osama bin Laden was taken.
Out by a -- seal team.
It piqued the interest of people to understand who seals are we don't get to meet a lot of them you know.
What what has been the public's reaction to you in the work that you do it you know.
It's never been anything but positive -- -- we we enjoyed particularly in this kind of -- Of being a war and be in the in the military this amazing support so.
I've never not been in uniform when someone hasn't come up and thanked me for my service and I think everybody's experience the same see that in airports -- a spot where you see some in uniform so.
It's very special to know.
I think where everybody anybody falls on their belief in on the political spectrum are on the wars that are being fought it's it doesn't trickled awesome and the support has been amazing and then.
You know where we're a community that -- has lived in the shadows and then there's a lot of mythology that kind of circles around a -- be it would.
You know through these guys and and and what you'll see on the blue residency in the theaters it you'll be able to see you the authentic version of who we are not not a Hollywood version.
-- we know there isn't a holiday that goes by and I've been covering the military for fifteen years there is a holiday that goes by that I don't tell people on the air.
That if you have an extra seat or make connections -- -- your holiday table find the basis closest to you and write someone off most to your home.
It'll be a great experience for them an even greater one for you.
And whenever I fly if I happen to be in first class I always give up.
My -- to someone in uniform having been in C 130.
You know you have I I think -- -- little things that you can do and future.
I also was in the building on 9/11 and what.
He's being done for us overseas is clearly keeping us all safe here at home.
Did you always want to be a -- because you -- like one of the toughest job very could have really gone and nobody's here on yourself.
Yet know I've always been under achievers -- seem like an easy path I was I was in the spring in my senior college I did not know what I want to do next is as a lot of a lot of young folks do and I I.
I read a book that my dad -- sent me by Winston Churchill and -- about his early life of service through.
Wars -- some of the same terrain we're in now and and just kind of his.
In my mind it was but called to serve in the an idea of service and that that would be a great place for young -- to start kind of cut his teeth in and mature and it just seemed like the right path for me when I read that book and then once was ready to serve locked -- I really want to be with -- reorganization and with the peer group that I felt.
I hope I can I could be a part of and then also knew I'd be in the right place and it's it's worked out on the -- at this hour.
He was not -- you know he believe volunteered it in Vietnam at that point he had.
Super thick free contact Sarah and they -- -- Rebecca.
We're not gonna let you play so -- -- little -- a lot of service my family over the years and and so.
It it is a brotherhood it even says that on the back but that's the one thing when I side that I realized that.
The bond can't be broken I mean I know that.
No soldier left behind like when -- in the army and it's been very clear that you -- all there to support each other but it's exceptional.
With the -- for sure did you find that just -- -- working together what was the camaraderie on sat.
That's just a different level than -- experience in the family.
It's this that that real true you know each other they have each -- lives at stake in their own hands so I think.
That really transcends.
To a whole another level and -- see they they they speak when not it's not speaking to each other like this by the look -- each other.
Expected says so much in practice what we wanted to capture on act of valor was really that brotherhood that they have that really no -- really gets a chance to see that.
And -- -- and that's what it's like the.
The remark you fake it either I mean you really put him through the paces here help us if we wanted to and -- -- -- we were gonna make sure we're showing what you guys really do and.
It was fun to give them targets as they say there's a bad guy on a -- -- South -- -- how would you get him.
And on they would architect all the battle plans and then we wrap our cameras around their battle plan BX get together.
And it was for -- it was like.
You're trying to keep up -- them preview we tricked me in my in my partner -- -- -- hunters trying.
I was just stay -- they get you out there for PT in the morning how many flutter kicks you do like a thousand a day to make it more do you need to I'm sure your legs -- -- -- What I learned it feels good football we have there it there it's in crime fighting brother -- the key.
Unity that we -- -- -- Thought I was a man until I met them now out little boy trying to get another huge analysis.
They're just they're just you really don't you understand that we -- ordinary man did just do beyond extraordinary stuff.
And -- -- mean these guys decide.
Even if -- -- -- that is extraordinary.
I mean just it's so realistic it it won't you won't speak for the entire time you watch it will take your breath away if if anyone that missed it I really feel bad for you.
It's good to you bringing us the another chance and operation homefront.
Yes yeah -- -- -- let me ask workers you probably hear from people that have benefited from this program it's.
It's on the way I mean.
You of them amongst others -- -- there there are a lot of places you can you can give to help.
You know our military particularly wounded and their families and -- that that ends and become -- -- actually think it's what.
What the movie's about is really the families -- minute you know the byproduct of that as is that accidents -- it but it's it's the sacrifice the family so.
On that money goes of them and helps folks that you know either don't have.
That who has a return or or someone has been injured severely.
And these programs are on believable problem people get back on their feet.
Give them job skills and focuses it's it's tremendous program and and some that were.
You know delighted that partner picked a good one even thank god when you do return.
The families serve as well that's right they really do people should not forget that it's not just those that are in active duty -- in the reserves.
As I understand that you will continue -- work for our country.
Are you patriot I mean clearly I was passing strange and even your.
Your honor and and love of the country has just made me such a proud American -- what our what our guys -- or could do for our countries but it makes you.
Really proud to be here that we have people like that that protect our freedom.
Yeah for me it's this I think the movie does that -- -- it gives you new found respect for lot of the things that licensing laws in the shadows that we never know about.
You know -- -- I would use analogy now might be somebody in line Friday at Starbucks that saved your life you'd never know.
-- -- We don't need a lot of -- Hats off to you thank you so much I don't know how you follow this when I think he is your time for retirement if -- -- athlete who never thought I would want but I want -- I don't know little by little enough that I will we're gonna promote this like crazy -- on Fox's friends yeah well it's re thank you so much for coming to fox.
