Viola Davis Talks Amanda Waller For SUICIDE SQUAD

While on the red carpet for the annual GLAAD Media Awards, Viola Davis (How To Get Away With Murder) took a few moments to chat with CBR News about her upcoming role as Amanda Waller in David Ayer's Suicide Squad. Her first question was the age-old why did she sign on for the part, her reply: "That she’s Amanda Waller! That she’s badass!"

The actress then elaborated a bit and revealed how she relates to the character: "She’s unapologetic, everything that I’m reading and studying about her: unapologetic, no humor, just brutal. That’s me!" The two-time Tony Award-winner & two-time Academy Award-nominee sounded genuinely excited that she'll be the one to bring The Wall to life on screen and ended her brief interview by sharing some of the sentiment: "Listen, she gets to use a gun, it’s my fantasy. Now, I would never do that in real life, but when I get a gun on set, it does something to me. *Laughs*"

Directed by David Ayer, Suicide Squad stars Will Smith (Deadshot), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag), Jared Leto (the Joker), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), with Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), and Jessie Eisenberg (Lex Luthor). The film opens August 5, 2016.
