Interview: Adam Baldwin on ‘The Last Ship’ and Shooting Out of Continuity (video)

Adam Baldwin stars in TNT’s The Last Ship as XO Mike Slattery, the second command of the ship. The show, also starring Eric Dane, Rhona Mitra, Travis Van Winkle and Charles Parnell, is the story of what happens when a global pandemic wipes out eighty percent of the planet’s population and the crew of a lone naval destroyer must find a way to pull humanity from the brink of extinction.

I’ve talked to Adam a couple times now and he’s always a great interview. In this roundtable interview I did with him at Comic-Con, he talks about:

  • If his character would ever lead a mutiny against Eric Dane’s Commander Tom Chandler?
  • What might happen in the just announced season 2
  • Since it’s a serious show, how’s the mood on set?
  • He also talks about the “great challenge” of shooting out of continuity.

The Last Ship airs on Sundays at 9pm on TNT

* I looked in my notes but I couldn’t find the gentleman’s name who was sitting next to Baldwin. I’ve failed you all.
