Joel Edgerton Miscellany (& a little Dash of Nash)

As part of his grueling training regimen for “Warrior,” Joel went to Albuquerque for several weeks to work with Greg Jackson, the world-renowned MMA trainer on whom Frank Grillo’s character was based.  Impressed by Joel’s skill, Jackson paid him the ultimate MMA compliment, referring to him as a “real martial artist:”
“He was a real martial artist in the sense that he was an all-around guy.  He did well with the grappling, the striking, with everything, really. He was an actual mixed martial artist, which was pretty cool.”
As part of his training, Jackson made Joel run the infamous Hill of Tears, a steep 8,000-foot incline in the sweltering desert heat:
“The Hill of Tears breaks souls,” Jackson said.  “It’s called the Hill of Tears because it breaks you down and you start crying.  It was like 104°F, but Joel ran it really hard.  He threw up—but he ran it really hard.”
