Dave Bautista was almost not cast in 'Blade Runner' sequel

Thursday, January 18, 2018

Actor Dave Bautista almost missed out on starring in Blade Runner 2049 as director Denis Villeneuve thought he was too young to play the character. The Guardians of the Galaxy actor and Villeneuve recalled the casting of Bautista for the role of Sapper Morton in the film.

“The vulnerability that Dave brought to the character was essential for the movie to be a success,” said Villeneuve. Bautista said the experience of working in the film was first for him as it “was something completely different from anything I’d ever done, actually playing a character who was older than myself”.

To this, Villeneuve said despite Bautista’s “strong presence”, he felt the actor was “too young to play that part”, an answer which left Bautista “stunned”. “Throughout my experience in Hollywood, I was either too big or too old. I had never been told I was too young, and I just didn’t know what to say.”And then they got in touch with me and asked if I would go through some makeup tests to try and age me. I said, ‘Of course’,” said Bautista. Makeup artist Donald Mowat’s expertise at his craft ensured that Bautista got the role. AP

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)This is the right time to ask for help if you need it. Adjustments are necessary almost at every level. You must adapt to some things that you cannot change. Do not be rigid and accept readily with grace. Use your money wisely, for there may be several demands. A long distance journey to a pilgrim spot or the need to meet a person you look up to is likely. The need to get an unbiased opinion about your affairs is strong.
