Broken bones are an integral part of stunt coordinator Jack Gill’s job description, and the more he has only proves how long he’s been in the industry. (His first stunt was in the 1979 cult classic “Rock n Roll HIgh School”) His latest film, “Fast Five,” includes a scene where stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker steal a 10-ton safe by hooking it up to their cars and dragging it through the streets. I had the pleasure of talking with Gill about the day-to-day realities of his job including what it really means when stars do their own stunts and his one-man mission to add a Best Stunt category to the Academy Awards.
