The guys who were played by Miles Teller and Jonah Hill in the 2016 film War Dogs are just as crazy in real life as their pot-smoking, gun-running movie counterparts. It’s been a hot second since their likenesses first came to life on the big screen, but for some reason, there’s still a huge interest in Efraim Diveroli and David Packouz — and it’s not really all that hard to understand why. These guys are amazingly interesting. You can call Diveroli and Packouz a lot of things, but you can’t call them boring.
From profiting from war to spending time in the clink and getting caught up in lawsuits, the reality of the Diveroli/Packouz situation is as interesting (if not more interesting) than the film based on their lives. Did we mention that one of them is also musically inclined? These guys are full of surprises.
