American Underdog | Ser’Darius Blain On The Themes Of The Film [Exclusive Interview]

American Underdog

American Underdog from Lionsgate tells the inspiring story of the then St. Louis Rams Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner. To me, it doesn’t feel that long ago that the Rams and the Titans battled it out at Super Bowl 34. There Warner became Super Bowl champion and the game’s MVP. Some of the younger sports fans may know him better as a television personality on sports shows. What most people (including myself) did not know was his struggle to get to his position as starting quarterback for the Rams.

This is where American Underdog takes over. Here Zachary Levi, Anna Paquin, and Dennis Quaid lead a talented cast in telling Warner’s story. Directed by the Erwin brothers, this film showcases the power of love, faith, and perseverance. It has the ability to inspire viewers to reach out for their goals regardless of their circumstances.

To get a better understanding of the themes of the American Underdog, LRM Online’s Emmanuel Gomez spoke with actor, Ser’Darius Blain who plays a character named Mike Hudnutt. He spoke with us about his experience was getting to travel back in time to the 90s. Also, he talks about how the film displays the responsibility of loving someone. It was a great conversation that you can check out down below!

Here is the synopsis for Lionsgate’s American Underdog

American Underdog tells the inspirational true story of Kurt Warner (Zachary Levi). Who went from a stock boy at a grocery store to a two-time NFL MVP, Super Bowl champion, and Hall of Fame quarterback. The film centers on Warner’s unique story and years of challenges and setbacks that could have derailed his aspirations to become an NFL player. But just when his dreams seemed all but out of reach, it is only with the support of his wife, Brenda (Anna Paquin) and the encouragement of his family, coaches, and teammates that Warner perseveres and finds the strength to show the world the champion that he already is. American Underdog is an uplifting story that demonstrates that anything is possible when you have faith, family and determination.

American Underdog is now in theaters.
