David Dastmalchian Explains Why Milton Was ‘Precious’ to
This article comprises spoilers for “The Suicide Squad”
As anticipated, there was an entire lot of dying in James Gunn’s “The Suicide Squad.” And although it was laborious for followers, the squad members themselves had been largely unphased by most of them, save for Rick Flag’s. But there was one different dying that basically hit dwelling for each followers and Polka Dot Man specifically — Milton.
But let’s be sincere: Polka Dot Man’s response was simply…logical. It was how any regular human — so not Bloodpsort, and undoubtedly not Harley Quinn — would react to seeing somebody they’ve come to know get killed. Poor Milton was loyal from the second he began chauffeuring the squad round Corto Maltese, and ultimately, he was simply within the improper place on the improper time.
A heartbroken Polka Dot Man, performed by David Dastmalchian, was livid at his teammates for not even registering Milton on their radars. It’s one of many funniest moments within the movie and, for Dastmalchian himself, the second was undoubtedly hysterical to learn on the web page — nevertheless it additionally made him very nervous.
“When I got to the Milton scene, I was dying, it was so funny. I was so nervous about making it work too, because like I’m not a comedy actor,” Dastmalchian admitted to TheWrap. “I don’t know what kind of actor I am, to be honest. I’m just, I don’t know, I don’t get it. It’s so strange but comedy intimidates me to no end.”
And sure, he’s nicely conscious of the irony in that assertion, contemplating the comedic facet of the “Ant-Man” motion pictures. But, in line with Dastmalchian, he truly felt a number of stress in these movies, working alongside “one of the gods of comedy” — Paul Rudd.
“And then this Milton scene, I was like ‘oh my god, how is this gonna work?’ And the day we were shooting it — as he did several times during filming — [director] James [Gunn] was just like, ‘Don’t do anything! Just perform it the way that you would really do it,’” Dastmalchian stated. “And so I just got really upset and thought about my poor dear friend Milton, who I met a couple hours previous.”
Of course, the sincerity there additionally brilliantly highlights simply how, for lack of a greater time period, ruthless the remainder of the squad is with regards to interpersonal relationships. Granted, all people is aware of Harley Quinn is a sociopath. It’s harsh, nevertheless it kind of is sensible that she didn’t keep in mind Milton.
Bloodsport, alternatively, undoubtedly knew who Milton was; he simply didn’t actually care about him. He even bullies Polka Dot Man for feeling the other, asking when his “love affair” with Milton started. Bloodsport himself seemingly couldn’t care much less.
But Polka Dot Man isn’t like these guys. He’s a caring one that suffers from PTSD over his mom’s horrible experiments on himself and his siblings. So he truly cares that somebody he knew died — in that means, he’s probably the most regular member of the Suicide Squad.
“I think for Abner [Krill, Polka Dot Man’s real name], he didn’t feel like he belonged anywhere. He’s always been an outsider and he’s never had a friend to speak of. And life has been nothing but abject misery, suffering and depression and embarrassment and shame and isolation,” Dastmalchian stated.
“And he’s going on this mission, just because he’s optimistic that he’s going to, you know, like Team One, he’s just so hopeful that his brains are gonna get splattered as soon as he goes on this mission, and it doesn’t happen. He keeps making it to the next stage of the mission.”
Dastmalchian continued: “And then all of us exit to this membership, and we change into shut! We have this enjoyable evening and, like, Colonel Flag ruffles my hair like I’m his little brother and, like, I make my new pals. And I’m, like, ‘Oh my God, I know this incredible feeling of belonging.’
“So that small group of us in that van, could also be to…
