Jerry Bruckheimer, Peter Berg Discuss Heroes at Daily Beast Summit

Tina Brown kicked off The Daily Beast’s second annual Hero Summit Thursday, Oct. 10, in Washington. D.C.’s politicians, journos and military leaders were all on the slate, including Sen. John McCain, Bob Woodward, and Gen. John Allen.

From Hollywood, producer Jerry Bruckheimer discussed “Black Hawk Down” with survivor First Sergeant Matthew P. Eversmann, whose account inspired the film. Eversmann recounted what it was like being in Mogadishu: “I remember sitting there on this moving Humvee, sitting on top of somebody else, lying on my back, unable to sit up because of the weight of my body armor like a turtle. Literally, you know, bullets flying over and thinking, ‘My gosh, this is really gonna hurt, I hope it doesn’t hurt that badly.'”

The evening program featured a screening of Peter Berg’s “Lone Survivor,” co-hosted by NBCU’s Ron Meyer. The film opens Jan. 10.
