“The Big Short” is a remarkable story, based on the best-selling book by Michael Lewis, that chronicles a real-life group of Wall Street outsiders who predicted the nearly apocalyptic housing crash. These guys made millions betting against subprime housing by buying up credit-default swaps on mortgage bonds.

The cast includes some of the best actors in Hollywood, including Academy Award winner Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt and Jeremy Strong.

The Man Guide’s Michael Alvarez recently caught up with Jeremy Strong (The Judge, Selma, Zero Dark Thirty, Lincoln) who plays hedge fund manager Vinny Daniel. Here’s a clip from that interview along with the film’s killer trailer.

The Big Short will be out in theaters on December 23rd, 2015.
