Michael Peña is known for mostly his dramatic roles (Fury, End of Watch, Crash), but in ANT-MAN audiences will see a comedic side to the actor, and steal the show. During a press conference at the Disney Studios in Burbank, Calif., with the ANT-MAN's cast and filmmakers, Peña describes how he came up with the character and why he based it on an actual person. In the interview, you'll also hear from director Peyton Reed and Paul Rudd who re-wrote the Edgar Wright script and gave Michael Peña the freedom to improvise.
