PHS Editor and Harlequin Historical author Michelle Styles investigates the possiblities of James Badge Dale
James Badge Dale was one of the leads in Pacific and he also has a significant role in Iron Man 3. He also has significant parts in World War Z starring Brad Pitt and The Lone Ranger which stars Johnny Depp.
He keeps his private life private because of his early experience with being teased about being in the Lord of the Flies. He said that people thought they knew him from the movie but it wasn't how he was in real life. He initally stayed away from acting but obviously caught the bug.
In addition to the lead in Pacific, he also appeared in Rubicon (2010) which was cancelled and so he never was able to learn how the thriller ended. It is apparently one of his biggest regrets -- not having closure. Apparently this is a problem with tv series as opposed to a movie. A movie will normally have a closed ending (all threads tied up) but tv series don't because they may or may not be renewed.
