Who knew that Tom Berenger could make some magic?
Berenger plays Walter Weed, an unassuming desk jockey at the FBI with a bit of a penchant for magic tricks. When a plot to assassinate him is uncovered, all hell breaks loose in “Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassin’s Ball.” The guys at Universal and Special Ops Media sent us this exclusive clip from the movie.
The first change the character performs is pretty slick. But even though the card-to-pocket trick goes from clip to clip, we love the no-fluff delivery of Berenger’s character, Walter Weed. That presentation got Brad Christian’s attention: He and the rest of us were impressed with the straightforward, calm confidence that his character exudes. It’s something we can all infuse into our performances.
We also like the looks of that deck of playing cards he’s using.
“Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassin’s Ball” and all of its card-flinging, gun-firing action, hits stores on Jan. 19. It’s available as a DVD and Blu-ray. The guys who sent us the clip are also sending us a few copies that we’re going to give to you. Keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook pages for deets.
