Interview: Charlie Day talks ‘Fist Fight’

by Phil Wheat

Fist Fight sees Ice Cube and Charlie Day star as high school teachers prepared to solve their differences the hard way in the comedy – in cinemas this Friday – directed by Richie Keen (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia). Fist Fight also stars Tracy Morgan, Jillian Bell, Dean Norris, Christina Hendricks, Dennis Haysbert, and JoAnna Garcia Swisher.

On the last day of the year, mild-mannered high school English teacher Andy Campbell (Day) is trying his best to keep it together amidst senior pranks, a dysfunctional administration and budget cuts that put jobs on the line.  But things go from bad to worse when he accidentally crosses his much tougher and deeply feared colleague, Ron Strickland (Ice Cube), who challenges Campbell to an old-fashioned throw down after school.News of the fight spreads like wildfire and ends up becoming the very thing this school, and Campbell, needed.

Fist Fight is out in cinemas this Friday. In this interview, actor Charlie Day talks about his character Andy Campbell; working with Richie Keen; and his cast mates Ice Cube, Tracy Morgan and Jillian Bell.
