A Conversation with the cast & producer of The Last Ship
Join us for a conversation with the cast and producer of The Last Ship: Adam Baldwin, Travis Van Winkle, Chris Parnell, and Steven Kane

This summer, TNT is going to take viewers on an action-packed ride with the exciting new drama series The Last Ship, starring Eric Dane (Grey's Anatomy) and executive-produced by blockbuster filmmaker Michael Bay (Transformers). Based on William Brinkley's popular novel, The Last Ship comes to TNT from Bay's Platinum Dunes and its partners, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, whose credits include the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Bay, Fuller and Form serve as executive producers, along with showrunner Hank Steinberg (creator of Without a Trace, The Nine) Steven Kane (The Closer) and director Jack Bender (Lost). Steinberg and Kane wrote the series pilot, which was directed by Jonathan Mostow (U-571).

Premiering Sunday, June 22, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT), The Last Ship opens with a global catastrophe that nearly decimates the world's population. Because of its positioning, the Navy destroyer U.S.S. Nathan James avoids falling victim to the devastating tragedy. But now the crew and its captain must confront the reality of their new existence in a world where they may be among the few remaining survivors.

Dane stars as Captain Tom Chandler, a career Navy man who is authoritative and decisive, but also fair and courageous. A born leader and a loving father and husband, Chandler is respected and loved by the men and women under his command. The Last Ship also stars Rhona Mitra (Strike Back) as Rachel Scott, a strong-willed, intelligent and fearless paleomicrobiologist assigned to the Nathan James to investigate the cause of billions of deaths worldwide. Adam Baldwin (Firefly, Chuck) is Slattery, the ship's second-in-command who worries deeply about his family and occasionally clashes with Dane's Captain Chandler over the best course of action. The series also stars Travis Van Winkle (Heart of Dixie), Charles Parnell (Pariah), Christina Elmore (Fruitvale Station), Sam Spruell (Snow White and The Huntsman) and Marissa Neitling (Leverage).

Adam Baldwin - XO Mike Slattery
Adam Baldwin has amassed an impressive and expansive range of film roles totaling over 60, from large studio projects to gritty independents. As a teenager in Chicago, he was chosen from among 4,000 aspiring actors to play the title role of Ricky Linderman in the 1980 feature film, My Bodyguard, starring Matt Dillon. During that same year he caught the attention of Robert Redford and was cast in Ordinary People, opposite Timothy Hutton, Donald Sutherland and Mary Tyler Moore.
Baldwin went on to work with the legendary Stanley Kubrick as Animal Mother in Full Metal Jacket. Throughout the years Baldwin has worked with many of Hollywood's most talented and successful actors and directors, including Robert De Niro in Guilty By Suspicion, Mel Gibson in The Patriot and Kevin Costner in Lawrence Kasden's Wyatt Earp. He also starred in Independence Day and Richard Donner's Radio Flyer, with Lorraine Bracco.
Television has been a great medium for Baldwin, as he has appeared in projects that include HBO's acclaimed miniseries From the Earth to the Moon, executive-produced by Tom Hanks, the telefilms In the Line of Duty: Smoke Jumpers and Francis Ford Coppola's Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde and the series The Cape. He also starred in the series The Inside and Day Break and in 2012 wrapped his fifth and final season as John Casey in the NBC dramedy Chuck. Memorable recurring and guest-star roles include TNT's Leverage, Castle, Bones and CSI: NY.
In the sci-fi world, audiences know Baldwin for his starring role on Firefly, recurring roles on The X-Files, Angel and The Visitor, and guest starring roles on Stargate SG-1 and the new The Outer Limits. He followed up his Firefly character once again in Joss Whedon's motion picture, Serenity.
Baldwin currently resides in Los Angeles.
