Cam Gigandet: "Right."
Why do you keep getting cast as the bad guy?
Cam Gigandet: "I have no idea. Apparently I do that well. No, that was definitely one of the main things that interested me about this movie is because I got to play someone different. He's actually a good guy who tries to do the right thing."
