Interview: Street Fighter's New M. Bison - Neal McDonough

When it comes to the cast of the upcoming Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, while I do certainly think Kristin Kreuk is absolutely gorgeous, I have the most respect for Neal McDonough. He's an actor who (I personally believe) hasn't really been used to his full potential over the past years, but has still appeared in numerous unforgettable roles from "Band of Brothers" to Minority Report and beyond. I luckily was given the opportunity to talk with Neal last week in promotion of Street Fighter and was very excited going into this interview. Given that it finally hits theaters this weekend, I thought I'd put this up today.
Watch our interview with Neal McDonough:

The video portion of the interview was shot using my Flip Mino camera. The full transcript will be posted at a future point. As you can tell, Neal really just loves his job, and is more than happy to continue taking on smaller roles and beefier gigs like this (even though I think he deserves better). Unfortunately the new Street Fighter movie isn't that great, but at least it's got Neal to help ease the pain. As he explains in the interview, he may not look like the classic M. Bison (see here), but he's definitely just as sinister in spirit. Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li hit theaters everywhere this weekend, starting on February 27th.
