Actors Ed Skrein (“Game of Thrones,” “Deadpool”) and Luke Kleintank (“Bones,” “The Man in the High Castle”) join Justin on Extension 720 to discuss their new film, “Midway.” Ed and Luke talk about how much they knew about the Battle of Midway before they began to work on the film, the research that goes into their preparation, the pressure they put on themselves to get the story right, the importance of telling the story of the Battle of Midway, the difficulty simulating a war, how they deal with criticism and how much their life experiences influence their work.

This is the podcast for Extension 720. The show originates from Chicago on WGN Radio and features newsmakers, tastemakers and trailblazers.  Hosted by award-winning broadcaster Justin Kaufmann, this talk show/audio magazine goes in-depth to help you better understand the city (and world) that you live in.
