Dolphin Lundgren Almost Said No To Creed II

Published

Dolphin Lundgren is returning to the role that made him a star. Lundgren will return as Ivan Drago in Creed 2.

In a recent Q&A session at Comic-Con Portugal, Dolph Lundgren was asked about his role in Creed 2. Lundgren explained how he thought about turning down the role.

“It was a bit strange. It’s a bit weird. Because at first I didn’t want to do it because I thought it would be kind of sad… I didn’t want to hurt that image because it’s like an iconic character that people, especially people who work out, really look up to this guy.”

Lundgren had this to say about making the decision to return.

“But the script was really good and I get a chance to show another side of the same man 35 years later, and more of a damaged, struggling side. I used some of my own life that I’ve been through the last 35 years in this character, so it’s kind of full circle. So it turned out to be a really great experience for me. A real dramatic challenge, but also a great experience to look back at my own career the way he looks back at his career as a fighter. There’re some parallels that I think are kind of unique. Because usually you don’t revisit the character 35 years later. Somebody else will play it. You get a new James Bond. Except, of course, Stallone has done it, so I guess I’m in good company there.”

Creed 2 hits theaters on November 21st a
