The Movie Breach and Hollywood’s Take on Espionage

Thursday, March 01, 2007

Peter interviews Eric O’Neill, the FBI investigator who went undercover as Robert Hanssen’s clerk during the final months before Hanssen was arrested for espionage.  O’Neill is the model for Ryan Phillippe’s character in the current movie Breach.  O’Neill talks about the ways the film mirrors—and diverges—from his real experiences with one of America’s most damaging spies.
