Jackson (co-star of Tropic Thunder (2008)).

Filmed in Detroit, Farmington, and West Bloomfield, Michigan, Sam chose to film Approaching Midnight in Michigan because he  wanted to feature the state’s amazing architecture and geography.  The war sequences in the movie were filmed in Milan near Ann Arbor.
