Michael Peña interview: 'End of Watch is a very intimate movie'

By
Michael Peña stars alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in gritty new cop thriller End of Watch.

Written and directed by Training Day helmer David Ayer, the film sees Gyllenhaal and Peña play two close-knit LAPD officers who are marked for death by a vicious cartel.


Speaking to Digital Spy about his role in the movie, Peña explained that his priority during their five-month rehearsal period was establishing a rapport with Gyllenhaal.

"When you spend eight to ten hours in the car with one person, you instantly become buddies," he said, referring to life as a real LAPD officer.

"Five months before shooting, that was the first time I ever met and hung out with [Jake]. We really just put a lot of attention on being brothers, that was the one thing we kept talking about over and over and over again... just becoming brothers, and making people believe it."
