Mark Wahlberg is a busy guy. He’s currently shooting Transformers 4 but flew in from Detroit to promote his latest film, the action-comedy 2 Guns, in UK cinemas on 16 August. Directed by Baltasar Kormákur, who also directed the actor in last year’s Contraband, the movie stars Wahlberg and Denzel Washington as two undercover cops from competing bureaus who are forced to go on the run together. Despite being jet-lagged, Wahlberg was in good spirits throughout the press conference. Here he chats about working with Washington, how much stunt work he does himself and reuniting with his Contraband director, Kormákur.

Say what you will about Nicolas Cage: he has brought to life an incredible diversity of characters dating all the way back to 1980. From Cameron Poe (Con Air) to Big Daddy (Kick-Ass), Cage’s versatility is undeniable. His latest film, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, sees him playing both the cursed Johnny Blaze and his bike-riding alter-ego. I was lucky enough to be invited to a press conference on behalf of Yin & Yang at the impressive Corinthia hotel in London. Read on for Cage’s thoughts on his new film, his influences, and much more.
