Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with a nice healthy rumor about the character of Juggernaut, supposedly from the lips of the big behemoth himself, Vinnie Jones. It's not much, but when it comes to a series like the X-Men films every little tidbit adds up. I hope Ratner delivers the goods. I'm not holding my breath, but I'm semi-optimistic. No matter what, I really like the casting of Vinnie Jones as Juggernaut. Let's see how the character is executed onscreen. Let's hope those one-liners he mentions aren't too horrible.
Just a titbit from here in Sunny England, not sure if you have heard any of this before but here we go.
Just watching an interview with soccer hard man turned actor Vinny Jones on a morning show called GMTV. Vinny was at a charity poker tournament, where 1 of the items under auction was his chair from the set of xmen 3. When asked about the film he said he had go through 4 hours of makeup every morning to get ready for the role of juggernaut, which included the boots. He also said that he had some good 1 liners in the movie, & that his character, although he didnt have much screen time, played an important role in the film.
Move importantly he revealed that he has signed for Xmen 4 & 5 !!!!!!!!
Hope this is of some interest.
