VIDEO EXCLUSIVE: MMA Star Randy Couture On His Favorite Moments Filming ‘Blowback’
Blowback, an action-packed thriller, follows the story of Nick, who plans the perfect heist only to be taken down and left for dead by his crew. Nick vows to get his revenge even if it means taking down his old crew one by one.
MMA star and actor Randy Couture, who plays antagonist Jack, recently sat down with uInterview founder Erik Meers to discuss some of the most memorable moments filming Blowback.
“Michelle [Plaia] and I had a very intense scene in the kitchen, and definitely pushed some boundaries in that scene. Obviously, when you’re working with a co-working, fellow actress, you gotta be careful especially when you start doing fights and stuff like that and she was in. One hundred percent. She was like, ‘No, let’s do this. Let’s make it right.” After we did the first take or two, we looked at each other like, ‘Man, how many takes of this are we going to do?’ It was pretty intense, but it was fun.”
Though Couture enjoyed filming the movie and spoke highly of his co-stars, filming in his hometown of Las Vegas was his favorite aspect of working on the project.
“The biggest part for me was getting to work in Las Vegas and getting to go home and sleep in my own bed,” Couture revealed. “I had never shot a film, in 20 years in acting, I had never filmed in Las Vegas. In 2021, I did three, and Blowback was one of those three. I’m not sure what the cause of that was. I know they are doing some tax incentives for filming in Nevada now, and I think that’s attracting more productions. Vegas is always an interesting character to add to a film. I had a great time working with everybody on this film and that’s what you take away from you. You make good friends, friends that you hope to see later on down the line.”
Blowback is playing in select theaters now.
