HOPPER PENN: The experience was fucking intense. Twelve of us play Marines. We got into Abu Dhabi, and the next morning we woke up at five, got our heads shaved, and went to boot camp. The first day, all those guys are your brothers. If you do 50 push-ups and someone falls down, you all start back at one. We all got really close.
