Tony Goldwyn Talks “The Hot Zone: Anthrax”
Tony Goldwyn is one of the premiere actors that’s been doing big things for decades. From film to television Tony has been one of the premiere go-to actors. His latest show is the National Geographic limited series The Hot Zone: Anthrax.
I had a chance to speak with Tony about the series. His portrayal of real life scientist Bruce Ivins and what he learned about anthrax from the making of the show.
Tony Goldwyn is a big time star, but doesn’t carry himself like one. He seemed very chill and a complete pro. Been a fan of his work for a long time. How can you not enjoy his work on Scandal? He’s a phenomenal actor.
I really liked the work he did in Anthrax. His portrayal of Bruce Ivins was really good and interesting. Not the typical standard role you’d imagine Tony to portray. Thought it was an intriguing choice by him and casting.
I wasn’t aware that Bruce Ivins was a real person and that he had passed. Tony didn’t have any conversation with his family, but did a lot of homework on Bruce, and it clearly shows when we see him on-screen.
Anthrax and Covid had a similar public reaction when they were first introduced. There was fear of the unknown and the dangers they possessed. Watching this show gave me chills. It’s very interesting and keeps you on the edge. I’d highly recommend it.
The original “Hot Zone” series was about Ebola and it was the most watched National Geographic scripted show ever. I’d also recommend check it out, it’s really good also.
