New Jersey based actor Greg Schweers has won the role of “President Griffin” in the upcoming political thriller Enhanced Interrogation.
Director Terry R. Wickham details his casting, “We needed someone who was very intelligent, who has been part of crucial decision making moments in real life, came across as authoritative and a true leader.
Because of Greg’s background as a Prosecutor, I’m certain he’s experienced more than his share of stressful situations where he’s had to research and prepare for the cases he prosecuted. I see these types of scenarios as similar to the responsibilities of the President of the United States.
Obviously Greg’s acting ability was paramount, but just as important was how he spoke and carried himself. Greg is someone that doesn’t get pushed around and since the character was written to be like our current president, I needed someone who could carry those stronghold traits.”
