The high-stakes film Man on a Ledge has a strong roster of actors that includes Sam Worthington, Elizabeth Banks, Anthony Mackie, Jamie Bell, Ed Harris, Edward Burns, and Genesis Rodriguez. Sam Worthington plays Nick Cassidy, an ex-cop and now-wanted fugitive who climbs onto the ledge of a high-rise building. Crowds begin to gather hundreds of feet below and Cassidy (Worthington) requests police psychologist Lydia Mercer (Elizabeth Banks) to talk him down from the ledge. However, the longer that they are on the ledge, the more she realizes things aren’t as they appear to be and he has an ulterior motive.
Entertainment Tonight recently was given exclusive behind the scenes footage from the DVD on how the actors and crew shot the scenes on the ledge. With all of the modern technology available and the special effects that can be done you would think that they weren’t actually on a ledge of a high-rise for those scenes and I was shocked myself to find out that the actors were indeed on a real ledge.
