I got a chance to talk to Eric Norris about making Universal Soldier. Highlights if the conversation included flying over the desert in 'the most beat up piece of crap helicopter I've ever seen' and 'Dolph and the other guys were always trying to out-macho each other, doing pull-up contests and crap like that. I just had a six pack hiding behind my chair.'

I'd say a bit of both? I'm sure they did that sort of thing when the cameras weren't rolling but it's all in good fun. Eric is an incredibly nice guy and he was more than happy to tell me these stories over the fourth of July, he happens to live on the same street as a relative.

Also: "So we're in this helicopter that sounds and feels like it's going to fall out of the sky at any moment and they tell us, 'Okay, cameras are gonna be rolling when you exit the helicopter into the water, It'll be about a ten foot drop so be sure to look cool.' Well, I look out the window when they call 'action' and it's at least twenty. So I jump, waving my arms and going 'Ooooh shiiit!'"
