As Commander Bill Cox in The Terminal List, LaMonica Garrett takes on Chris Pratt’s James Reese for his involvement in the deaths of Reese’s family and his SEAL team. During their final clash, the two wrestle intensely before Reese drugs Cox and dumps him in the ocean, where he eventually drowns.
In real life, however, things were much more amicable between the two actors.
“Chris is great,” says Garrett. “He was a wrestler in high school and we both love UFC fights. Me and he chatted behind the scenes [about] Battle. Then later in the season we had a scene where [we] must fight – “roll around,” as one would say in jiu-jitsu. After the shooting until the release of [the show]we had to go to a real UFC fight and sit ringside, which was fun.”
Commenting on working with Pratt, Garrett says, “Chris is a great guy to work with. He brings great energy and enthusiasm from the first to the last day of shooting and it’s always great to work with people like that.”
Garrett’s previous series 1883 is now available on Blu-ray and DVD and includes over two hours of bonus content, including never-before-seen featurettes.
