Terry Crews Is "Game" To Play Luke Cage
With Luke Cage set to appear as one of the Marvel Netflix series, Terry Crews offers up his support to play the character.
Crews tells the Collider:
"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!” (laughs)
In addition to Luke Cage, Marvel is creating series for Daredevil, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones all of which will cuminate with The Defenders mini-series.
Marvel begins filming this Summer in NYC.
