Born: March 11, 1964 in New York City, New York, USA

[re making Lone Survivor (2013)] I’m a patriot. I admire our military, their character, code of honor, belief systems. I lived with the SEALs, their families, went to their funerals. I went to Iraq. Did you ever see anyone killed? I did.

[re ‘Battleship (2012)] I couldn’t say no to that challenge. I felt I had a new understanding of what went into making a blockbuster. I got a taste of a film’s global power. But I discounted the effect of Will Smith on _Hancock (20100_’s success. I thought I could pull off Battleship (2012) without a big star…[Though] the perception wasn’t that Peter Berg screwed up.Where do you go to buy back your reputation when you lose it?

[re beginnings in college theater] It was a family thing, and there were hot girls…For some reason I fit in. I’m not sure why. I guess I was intrigued as much by misfits as by heroes…I love actors. I’m empathetic to them. I understand what they go through. But I didn’t want to be an actor.
