Here's what you saw on Good Day Alabama for March 28, 2014:
JOE MANGANIELLO - Sarah talked with Joe Manganiello about his new film - Sabotage. Arnold Schwarzenegger leads an elite DEA task force that takes on the world's deadliest drug cartels. The elite team executes what appears to be a tactical raid on a cartel safe house, which in fact, turns out to be an elaborate theft operation, pre-planned by the members of the DEA squad itself. After hiding $10 million in stolen cash, the rouge agents believe their secret is safe - that is until someone begins methodically assassinating members of the team, one-by-one. As the body count rises, everyone is suspect, including members of the team itself. The cast includes Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Joe Manganiello, Josh Holloway, Terrence Howard, Mireille Enos and more. This film is directed by David Ayer. It hits theaters nationwide this weekend and is rated R. For more information, visti http://www.sabotagethefilm.com/.
