Stephen Lang Brings Out the Hero in Anti-Heroes

Today I talk with actor and star of the blockbuster hit movie, Avatar, Stephen Lang. With courage, belief, passion, and a commitment to succeed, Lang has been successful on both stage and screen for more than four decades. He shares how men like Dustin Hoffman, John Malkovich, James Cameron, and Lang’s father, noted philanthropist, Eugene Lang, all impacted his career and his life.

Lang also tells how he uses the influences from his life to bring humanity, a purpose, to the characters he portrays—especially anti-heroes and antagonists like Avatar’s Col Quaritch—bringing a deeper understanding of these men who might otherwise come off as one-dimensional bad guys and villains. Lang’s ability to make us root for them is a testament to the honor and appreciation he brings to each man. And listening to his story, you’ll understand why.
