Author’s Note: The podcast recording took place prior to the announcement of Bruce Willis’s retirement from acting.

It is a pleasure to welcome to actor Mohamed Karim visited The Jake’s Take with Jacob Elyachar Podcast.

Mohamed was inspired by Hollywood film making at a very early age. After establishing an successful acting career in Egypt, he returned to Los Angeles to study acting in the entertainment capital of the world, but wanted to expand his career internationally. His portrayal of Samir in 2012’s A Facebook Romance won him Monaco International Film Festival’s Best Actor award. Several of his films including Shahata’s Store and Stolen Kisses won several regional awards and were shown to sold out audiences at the Tribeca Film Festival, the Los Angeles Film Festival, and the Arab Film Festival.  Mohamed Karim also participated in the Oscars and in the American Film Market in Los Angeles.

Recently, Mohamed Karim co-starred alongside Bruce Willis, Frank Grillo, and Kevin Dillon in A Day to Die. The film focuses on a disgraced parole officer Connor Connolly (Kevin Dillon), who is indebted to a local gang leader (played by Frank Grillo) and forced to pull off a series of dangerous drug heists within 12 hours to the pay the millions he owes. In addition to the debt, the disgraced parole officer needed to rescue his kidnapped pregnant wife, while settling a score with the city’s corrupt police chief (played by Bruce Willis). 

Mohamed portrayed Detective Reynolds, a committed and righteous law-enforcer who is not afraid to do the right thing or see justice served. Even if it places him in the line of danger. His work and daughter are the two most important figures in his life.  The Hollywood Reporter noted that he will partner with Dark Castle Entertainment to develop a Middle East-set horror film Book of Chaos.

In this edition of The Jake’s Take with Jacob Elyachar Podcast, Mohamed Karim talked about working with Bruce Willis and Frank Grillo on A Day to Die and his experience on hosting the Middle East version of The Voice.
