How to get more sex in a soap opera
Operation Eagle Claw is about a group of young men in an elite military unit who must face a series of brutal and life-threatening situations.
In this installment of the “Vegas Life” podcast, author James Marsters explains how he got started on the series.
“It was about a time in my life where I was very, very confused about my sexuality, and I was wondering how my sexuality would feel in the world,” he said.
“I was in a lot of really bad situations, and what I wanted to do was make my sexuality feel normal.”
As part of a special deal with Universal Pictures, Marsters was able to do a short interview with star/director David Yurman.
“We had a lot in common, we grew up in the same hometown, and we were both on a lot.
I guess I just thought, ‘OK, we’ll go together,'” he said of the film.
“David was always kind of cool with it, and he was like, ‘I’m going to do this film, and if you do it, I’m going back to school.'”
In the end, they decided to do it together, and the results were so promising, they did it.
“He got really good with the script,” Marsters said of Yurmans adaptation of the book.
“The first scene he wrote, which is the opening, was like one of those long, long shots that you take and put in your head and you think, ‘Oh my god, I have to do that.’
He wrote it really well.
And then, once we shot it, it was like we were in this world together, which was really nice.”
“We did it because I felt like it would be a great film to show people what it was really like to be a soldier, and how you’re supposed to act in this situation,” Yurmann said.
