(Blake Masters, the creator of Brotherhood, speaking of how Jason Clarke came to be in the show.)
Masters: I found Jason Clarke in the luckiest, weirdest way possible. We hired Philip Noyce to direct the pilot. He went off to Australia. Jason was broke, without a green card, living in Philip's basement. He came in, read, and I was like, "Holy shit, that's Tommy Caffee." Philip came back, I said "We found Tommy Caffee," and he said, "Who?" Philip beat on Jason Clarke unmercifully. He was like, "You're going to be brilliant if I have to kill you to do it." He made sure that Jason became the guy. And Jason threw himself into it.
