The Losers is an American action movie from 2010 that was adapted by Peter Berg and James Vanderbilt from the same-named Vertigo Comic book by Andy Diggle and Jock. Sylvain White, Zoe Saldana, Idris Elba, Chris Evans, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan all appear in the ensemble cast of the movie.
Here is everything you want to know about “The Losers” cast!
Jeffrey Dean Morgan
Lieutenant Colonel Franklin Clay, a special forces colonel and the group’s de facto leader, is played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Morgan, who played Comedian in the superhero mystery film Watchmen (2009), thought that playing Clay was much simpler than Watchmen. Morgan claimed that the fundamentally different method provided him with more freedom and enabled him to be more playful with his persona.
The comedian had a lot worse sense of humour than this guy, according to Morgan. I can interpret this as a project where, in Watchmen, you had to look, I was playing the Comedian in the most revered comic book ever written.
I was confined to that. In this, I could fine-tune a lot of what I thought Frank Clay is and get to play with it a lot more. He’s not nihilistic. It’s completely different. This is much lighter. A much lighter load for me.
A native Bolivian woman, played by Zoe Saldana as Aisha al-Fadhil, offers assistance in finding Max. Saldana underwent intensive physical and firearm training in order to prepare for the part. The actress was expected to carry weapons about for eight hours a day, so she needed to put on a few pounds.
Al-Fadhil was described by Saldana as a cunning and enigmatic person. Although she made every effort to play her cards perfectly, Jeffrey’s persona just got to her.
There’s just something about him that makes her unable to kind of complete her duty, her goal. She clearly had her own prerogative and it was extremely meaningful for her.
Captain William Roque, played by Idris Elba, is skilled at detonating and deactivating explosives. He is also a master with a knife. Elba said that his connections with Silver, who he had previously collaborated with on a number of films, had helped him keep his part in the movie.

A couple of directors had looked at the script and were going to make it, but Sylvain White, the director, is someone I’ve known in the industry, and he told me, “I’ve got this thing I’m working on.”
Captain Jake Jensen, the team’s intelligence expert and computer hacker, is played by Chris Evans. According to Evans, playing the part was very different from his prior parts. Evans said, “He’s just a great guy, you know? He’s kind of the comedy relief.

” I don’t often get to play guys who are awkward and uncomfortable at times in specific settings, so it’s exciting to play him. He loves life. He’s a little nerdy. He’s not very smooth. He’s not only a wonderful character because of the energy you get to inject it with.
