It was a good day-off for Mackie, who is currently appearing in Broadway's A Behanding in Spokane. It was also Geraghty's dark night, away from Mark Taper Forum's new production of The Subject Was Roses, in which he plays another military-type: a son returning from World War II to face a homefront war between his parents. (He takes the 1964 role created by Martin Sheen, who now assumes the father part.)
In the weeks leading up to the Oscars, Geraghty spoke with Playbill.com about Sheen, "The Hurt Locker" and the recent indie flick "Easier With Practice." Of his work in the Iraq War-set "The Hurt Locker," he said, "It was grueling. It was hot. And it was tough. But as far as film goes, I mean, I was still making a movie and still acting. I mean, I wasn't in the war."
