"Their whole journey is set out from just genuine desires that they want to accomplish in life. You know, they kind of just have this hit list mindset... to just take on the world," Brooks said.

Joe Manganiello also put on the producer hat for the new action film, which Brooks praised in our interview.

"[Joe's] a beast. He's 100% invested and he wants to understand the character and I do too, so it was easy to wrap myself into that kind of energy."

"I was doing music before, but I never really took it seriously. But, in this EP itself, it's kind of like a hip-hop jazz fusion with elements in there, and it gets a little experimental too, so I really can't wait for people to hear it. I's different."
