Tim Robbins Dedicates 'The Lucky Ones' To Troops
The Shawshank Redemption star, an outspoken critic of U.S. president George W. Bush's administration, plays a U.S. trooper on leave from a tour of duty in Iraq in upcoming film The Lucky Ones.
To get in character for the part, he visited soldiers at Fort Dix, New Jersey - and was surprised by their reaction to him.
Robbins tells the New York Daily News, "One soldier said 'I don't agree with your politics but I want you to know there was a guy I served with. He and I didn't see eye to eye politically on a damn thing, bit I liked his character and if there was anyone next to me in a hostile situation, it would be him.'
"I wanted to make a picture for these troops, something they could enjoy. Right now we need healing. We need to understand the experience of what it's like for the troops to come home."
