“Midway’s” Dennis Quaid on being inspired by WWII heroes

The heroism of soldiers and officers is front and center in the upcoming movie “Midway” — and they’re the reason why a special screening at Pearl Harbor was held, and attended by its stars and filmmakers.

In the military action-drama “Midway,” Dennis Quaid plays Admiral William Bull Halsey — one of the real-life heroes who defended the country when America was attacked by the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II.

“I’ve always been interested in history, especially back when I was growing up, that was recent history, my dad was in World War II.”

Despite the intense Hawaiian heat and humidity, the cast gamely walked through their red-carpet premiere to talk about how their brave characters inspired them.
