Interviews Opinion

After a lengthy hiatus, Prime Video's Hunters is back for its second and final season and ahead of tomorrow's premiere, we sat down with actor Greg Austin ("Travis Leich") to talk about playing arguably the second most-detestable character on the entire series. 

We get into Travis' dangerous new mindset now that he's escaped prison and how he plans on getting his revenge against Jonah (Logan Lerman) this season. He also gets into the intricacies of the interesting Batman/Joker dynamic between Jonah and Travis and how that will affect his final fate.

ROHAN: Season two is great and I gotta say, you're a very scary man. 

GREG: Good, well, then I've done my job correctly.

ROHAN: Travis is out of prison now, but instead of being radicalized, he was doing the radicalizing. What were your goals for him this season? 

GREG: Yes, exactly, he was already radical. He's just bringing everyone else on side. Yeah, he breaks out of prison at the start of season two, and I wanted to take Travis and I wanted to mature him this season. In season one, you really see him sort of stepping in to himself and discovering where he's going in his life and what he wants, whereas season two is him like really solidifying that and becoming the adult version of that, at least that was how I projected him to David in my mind, and David loved that, ran with it, and we really get to see Travis mature this season in his evil.

ROHAN: There's a very interesting dynamic between your character and Logan Lerman's Jonah - what was your experience working with him and developing that hero-villain relationship?

GREG: Yeah, well, the idea with Jonah and Travis is there's a lot of comic book themes throughout the show, and there was always a slight Batman/Joker sort of vibe to them, and so getting to work with Logan - I love Logan. He's great. He's super chill, and just effortlessly professional and wonderful at his craft. - So, getting to chase him around all season for the last two seasons has been an honor, and yeah, it's just been fun. Logan is wonderful, as I've said. It's been an honor.

ROHAN: There are a few very cool action scenes this season, namely the hotel sequence and the barn sequence, can you tell me more about prepping for those scenes and going toe-to-toe with Logan?

GREG: Yeah, the prep was fun and fine, and quite easy, honestly. As I say, Logan is effortlessly professional and just a consistently beautiful actor. So, just walking on-set on the day of doing these scenes generally, and just blocking out any movement we're doing, any action we're doing together, and Logan is super chill and giving as an actor, so, it's always incredibly easy and painless working with him. So yeah, it was simple, honestly.

ROHAN: Don't want to get into spoilers too much, but hypothetically, if the series could have continued to a third season - have you had any discussions about what an older Travis could have looked like?

GREG: Yeah, as my idea with Travis for the season, as I said was maturing him somewhat, and making him more physical, and sort of making the face of evil, sexier? I don't know how else to put that. I wanted Travis to be intriguing and attractive. Evil has to have some motivating force, and it has to be attractive to bring people on-side, or, at least, I think that's how Travis feels about it, and being a psychopath, he wants to be adored, and that is the ultimate progression for him I feel in his maturation.

But David was throwing around the idea of linking a future version of Travis, an older version of Travis that would be set in the modern day, and so, we could see her the parallels of his character and how it would manifest nowadays, and we ultimately don't get to see that, but it's an interesting concept and it's good to know that he's just out there, still doing his thing and there is always a possibility of his ugly face of evil rearing its head again.

After an accident derails their exploits in Europe, The Hunters must band back together to hunt down history's most infamous Nazi—Adolf Hitler—who's hiding in South America. Meanwhile, a look to the past reveals Meyer Offerman (Al Pacino) encountering a dangerous threat that could unravel his secret and expose his true identity, with explosive reverberations for our Hunters.

Al Pacino returns for the epic series conclusion of Hunters alongside previously announced new series regular Jennifer Jason Leigh and returning series regulars Logan Lerman, Jerrika Hinton, Lena Olin, Josh Radnor, Tiffany Boone, Carol Kane, Louis Ozawa, Kate Mulvany, and Greg Austin.

Hunters is produced by Amazon Studios, Monkeypaw Productions and Halcyon Studios. The series is created and executive produced by David Weil, who serves as showrunner; Jordan Peele and Win Rosenfeld from Monkeypaw Productions; Phil Abraham, David J. Rosen, Jerry Kupfer, and Alfonso Gomez-Rejon. David Ellender and Matt Loze from Halcyon Studios also serve as executive producers.
