This unedited interview footage, taped by Dallas-based director Jim Ruddy for “Entertainment Tonight,” is with actor Robert Loggia and football players Herschel Walker, Jim Kelly, and Roger Craig about their involvement of the 1991 film, “Necessary Roughness”, which filmed near Ft. Worth. Loggia discusses his long friendship with costar Hector Elizondo and his favorite moment from “Entertainment Tonight”. Herschel Walker talks about how he does not want to get type cast as a convict because of his role in the film, although he is looking forward to “breaking bones” on set. Jim Kelly explains that he believes the appeal of the film will be the number of football stars in it, and Roger Craig discusses his expectations for acting with Evander Holyfield.
