Earlier today, the cast of Suicide Squad appeared on Good Morning America, and in this portion of the interview, Jay Hernandez discusses having his eyebrows shaved, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje talks about going through a five-hour process to become Killer Croc, and Margot Robbie shares a secret about Will Smith, who she also worked with on the 2015 film Focus.
"When we first met, Will didn't know how to swim," Robbie says. "I was insist that he get in a pool." Joel Kinnaman interjects, "He still doesn't know how to swim." Robbie shouts back, "He did lessons."
Smith explains, "I grew up in the inner-city of Philly, there wasn't a lot of swimming pools."
Akinnuoye-Agbaje tries to come to Smith's defense, saying many black men don't know how to swim. Viola Davis chimes in, "I know how to swim" and gets a round of applause.
It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
Written and directed by David Ayer based on the characters from DC Comics, the film stars Will Smith (“Ali”), Jared Leto (“Dallas Buyers Club”), Margot Robbie (“The Wolf of Wall Street”), Joel Kinnaman (“RoboCop”) and Viola Davis (“The Help”).
