Is that a legal opinion?

I think he means in terms of personal safety.

Who is going to play Sean Penn in this movie?

And I don't think he is involved in the capture. Seems like he was being used to be some type of PR for El Chapo.

Really bad decision on his part mixing it up with a Mexican drug cartel.

The interview took place back in October, so of course Penn didn't actually help capture him. It was Guzman being an egomaniac dumbass trying to get in touch with Hollywood-types because he wanted a movie or TV series that allowed authorities to ultimately close in on him.

not sure how different it would have been if he had gotten to do the two day face to face interview he wanted to, but i'm pretty sure I could have given him the same answers with wikipedia and using common sense. I mean you have the most wanted man and you ask "Some people say that drugs are damaging to the world, what do you think about that?"... really?

Nobody's ever accused Penn of being very bright.

Some day, Penn will be able to conquer his own personal El Chapo, which, in this case, happens to be the ACTUAL El Chapo.
