“I wanted to have Idris not be the blonde, square-jawed, anglo, super hip marine that knows [everything]. I wanted somebody that could bring a lot of authority, but that you could feel the weight of the world on his shoulders.

I wanted somebody that you could have doubts internally, and very few guys can do that.”—
