Will Brittain is one of those underrated actors that appeared in a lot of shows and movies in versatile roles. I’m still surprised he isn’t a household name, but it’s coming. Brittain has appeared blockbusters such as Kong: Skull Island, The Forever Purge, and in critically acclaimed films such as Everybody Wants Some. His latest is the indie drama The Road to Galena.
I spoke to Will about his co-stars in The Road to Galena and filming that movie. Meeting him on the Everybody Wants Some press tour, plus him becoming a father.
Been a fan of Will and his work since I first saw him in Everybody Wants Some. I shared the story in the interview of meeting him for the press day and running to class. Will made a great impression on me back then by offering me some tea.
As you can probably tell in the interview he’s a very grounded guy. Not a Hollywood type by any means. In The Road to Galena he co-stars alongside Aimee Teegarden (Friday Night Lights) and Ben Winchell (Max Steel). I figured all of them are around the same age so I asked him if he knew them or ran into them over the years. What I found out is that Will also auditioned for Max Steel (his first LA audition actually) and Ben ended up with the role. Full-circle stuff.
Will seems to be in a great place in life both professionally and personally. He’s doing awesome work. It would have been nice if this was a video call as originally planned, but he had some connection issues and we had to settle for a phone call. Hopefully, we will be chatting again soon and we can delve further into his work and personal life.
