Holt McCallany Joins Angel Has Fallen – ManlyMovie

Holt McCallany Joins Angel Has Fallen

Holt McCallany, star of manly movies such as Bullet to the Head or Shot Caller, is going to star alongside Gerard Butler in Angel Has Fallen.

McCallany is set to play an old and close friend of Butler’s Secret Service agent Mike Banning called Wade Jennings. The leading role is an ex-military man who is now the head of technology company. As one would expect from the Fallen flicks, McCallany’s Jennings is playing more than one side in the Ric Roman Waugh directed threequel.

The third movie supposedly focuses on a terrorist attack on Air Force One.  So maybe we’ll get some get off my plane-isms.  The first movie grossed 170 million.  The second movie 205 million.

So now, what can they do with the third movie?  Let’s aim for a quarter of a billion, and McCallany will sure help.

    He was good in Mindhunter too, a manly character actor.

    • The Night Rider

      I’m going to start watching that. Didn’t even know it existed ’til today.

        Very Zodiac -like work from Fincher, interesting show for sure, I enjoyed it.

    • BradyDeez

      Really great show.

  • Mucho Macho

    You know Wade Jennings is not going to be some tulip

    The series in 2 for 2 in my book. I’ve liked both movies so bring on a third.

  • Mucho Macho

    Action Movies that take place on airplanes are awesome.

    My impression was that this might be less Air Force One and more Fugitive, as Butler is supposed to be personally targeted by the bad guys. Butler has also compared it to Logan, so maybe his character turns to McCallany for help while on the run?

    But whatever they do, it’s good to see this franchise continue. For my money they’re better examples of 80s-style action than the Expendables films.

    He was great in Jade, Jack reacher 2, three kings, and fight club as well so I definitely think he’ll be great in that. and you know what else? He’d be great in Expendables 4 as a villain henchman.
