Robert Redford Talks 'Slightly Weird' Experience On CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
Promoting his recent survival movie, All is Lost, veteran actor Robert Redford explains why he "relishes" a challenge and, again, why he signed on for Marvel's Captain America sequel. Check it out!
"There comes a moment when all seems to be lost, where there's nothing more to do; you can't do anything more," veteran actor Robert Redford says during an Associated Press interview while promoting his recent film, All is Lost. "You're up against the odds that are against you. And there seems to be no way out; all is lost, no point in continuing. And so some people quit, and they stop. And others, for unknown reasons, just keep going because that's all there is to do."
Discussing his role as head of S.H.I.E.L.D., Alexander Pierce, in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Robert Redford says: "Trying these new things is a way to keep moving forward and you keep discovering things about yourself. You're never too old for that I don't think. It's so different filmmaking, so completely high-tech and so completely different, I thought it would be interesting and fun to understand what that is, to be in it. Even though it is a smaller part; significant, but a smaller part [in the movie]. It is different [and] it was slightly weird."
After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy — the Winter Soldier.
