Terry Crews Doesn't Have Much Interest In Playing LUKE CAGE
The Expendables actor has been a firm fan-favorite for the role of "Power Man" for quite some time now, but while chatting to Blackfilm.com about his first animated flick, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2, Crews says that he's "trying to take myself outta that running"..
It's rare that an actor will admit to having no interest in playing a superhero or any character in a potentially huge blockbuster these days..just in case the powers that be might be paying attention. But that's exactly what Terry Crews did in an interview with Blackfilm.com. When asked about the persistent fan-chatter for him to play Luke Cage (or any superhero), Crews reveals that he'd much rather focus his attention on less obvious roles, and that he'd rather play a new character, and not someone already established in the comic books.
"Well, first of all, I’m trying to take myself outta that running. Because everybody’s like, ‘I want to play this superhero character, that superhero character’. I’d rather make up my own. Make a brand new one, you know...
..I think everybody’s is forcing this ‘Power Man’, Luke Cage thing. Man, it’s obvious, Marvel, for some reason, is not getting down with it. He’s being ignored."
Thoughts? Are you disappointed that Crews isn't pushed, or do you think there's a better actor out there for the role anyway? For the full interview click on the link below.
