Terry Crews Expresses Interest In Leading Marvel's LUKE CAGE Netflix Series
He's been a fan favourite choice for a very long time, and now Brooklyn Nine Nine star Terry Crews once again shares his thoughts on playing Luke Cage, this time in the planned limited series which will debut on Netflix sometime in 2015. Is he still interested? Read on for details...
"Anything can happen. All I know is scheduling and all that stuff—anything can happen. I’m open to all kinds of things, but who knows? Actually I took myself out of the Luke Cage running a while back, just because it was people trying to put people against each other.
[It was] Idris vs. Michael Jai and I’m like, ‘Wait a minute, this is not even greenlit! Can we talk to Marvel? Why are you talking to me? Don’t put me against my homeboy for a movie that’s not existing.’ I said, ‘Take me out!’
I heard [it’s greenlit] but I haven’t gotten any calls. I’ve been hearing stuff like, ‘oh you’re too old,’ and I’m like, ‘Man do my workout 20 years ago and we’ll talk about who’s too old (laughs).’ Like I said, anything can happen, I never rule anything out. I’m game. There are no rules. What’s up, Marvel? I’m right here, baby. I ain’t goin nowhere. You know where I live!"
Many thanks to Collider for the video and transcription. Terry Crews is obviously busy right now with Brooklyn Nine Nine (which was recently renewed for a second season), but if he can make the time, the majority of fans certainly wouldn't complain! We currently have no idea what sort of age group they're looking at for Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, so it's certainly possible that Marvel and Netflix might select him for the role. What do you guys think?
