In the hilarious new action comedy 30 Minutes Or Less, out August 12th, Nick (Jesse Eisenberg) is a small town pizza delivery guy whose mundane life collides with the big plans of two wannabe criminal masterminds (Danny McBride and Nick Swardson). Â The lowlifes kidnap Nick and strap a time bomb to him â€“ with the promise that theyâ€™ll blow him up unless he robs a bank.
Also in this film is actor Michael PeÃ±a, who plays hired hit man Chango, a go for broke gangster hell bent on collecting his share of the loot.
Sure, you learned to sympathize with him in 2004â€™s Oscar winning ensebleÂ Crash, rooted for him in Oliver Stoneâ€™s tragic World Trade Center, and mourned for him and his son in this yearâ€™s alien invasion/end-of-world action epic Battle: LA, but here, he serves as the undeniable comedic stand-out few knew him to be.
So while our attention is clearly on Nickâ€™s mission to rob the bank and rid himself of the bomb strapped to his chest, PeÃ±aâ€™s tattooâ€™d, gun weilding thug with an accent that has to be heard to be believed steals the show.Check out this clip to see Michael PeÃ±a like youâ€™ve never seen before and remember to go see the film, this coming August 12th, in a theater near you.
