The Pacific's Joe Mazzello Went from Dodging Dinosaurs to Dodging Bullets

Joe Mazzello

As HBO viewers begin drinking in the second half of The Pacific this weekend, they'll see the story line of Marine Eugene B. Sledge really kick in — which means they'll be seeing a lot more of Joe Mazzello.

James Badge Dale jokes that the boot camp that he and the other actors in The Pacific endured was so grueling that he's repressed any memory of it.

Dale Dye, a retired Marine captain who served as the military adviser for The Pacific and 2001's Band of Brothers, "likes to see actors cry," Dale tells TVGuide.com.

To prepare, he read Leckie's memoir, Helmet for My Pillow, and spent time with Leckie's widow and children. (Leckie himself died in 2001.)

"We all felt a lot of pressure to tell their stories with honor and integrity and respect," says Dale, whose co-stars include Joe Mazzello and Jon Seda.

"The wild thing about Robert Leckie is that he hated the Marines when he was in 'em," says the actor, who goes by Badge... read more
