Kilmer plays Steve Pruit in this crime drama directed by Werner Herzog. Pruit is a typical cynical post-Katrina New Orleans police officer who watches his partner go from a hero to becoming a drug addicted criminal in cop’s clothing. Also starring Nicholas Cage, Xzibit, and Eva Mendez. Cage:
I would say that the best actors of my generation that I would call geniuses are Val Kilmer and Robert Downey, Jr. So to get a chance to work with Val was a good thing, and I hope we’ll have more to do together.
