‘Contract to Kill’ DVD Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Steven Seagal, Russell Wong, Jemma Dallender, Mircea Drambareanu, Sergiu Costache, Ghassan Bouz, Andrei Stanciu | Written and Directed by Keoni Waxman

In his latest direct to DVD effort, Contract to Kill, Steven Seagal stars as Harmon, a CIA/DEA enforcer investigating Arab terrorists captured in Mexico. With his team: FBI agent Zara, and spy-drone pilot Sharp, he flies to Istanbul and uncovers a brutal plot by Islamic extremists – who plan to use Sonora drug-smuggling routes to bring deadly weapons, and leaders, into the U.S. To prevent an attack on America, Harmon must turn these two savage forces against one another before his time, and his luck, run out.

Filed under: Features, Celebrity Interviews

You never know when a simple statemetn can lead down an interesting path in an interview. When Missy Peregrym, who stars in the new ABC summer cop show 'Rookie Blue,' called me directly to do our interview last week, I told her that I was a bit surprised she didn't go through a publicist, like the vast majority of the people I interview choose to do.

She joked that she'll do that when she's "really famous" then said she was kidding. Then she told me that in reality, "I just don't want to be famous. I feel like there's a lot of sacrifice in that I'm not really willing to make."

What follows is a refreshingly honest interview from the down-to-earth Peregrym, who grew up in British Columbia being taught always to be herself by her parents (her father is a minister). The
