Jonathan Majors eyeing Edward Scissorhands as his most wanted dream role. Last year Majors has gained prominence as a favorite of fans of the series hit HBO Lovecraft Country , and has since won several major roles in other future projects. This year he can be seen in the Netflix Western Plus They Fall Starring Idris Elba, Zazie Beetz, Lakeith Stanfield, Delroy Lindo and Regina King. The majors will also play Kang the Conqueror in the Marvel Studios sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania .
Needless to say, things are going very well in Majors’ acting career right now, and he’s going to stay busy for the foreseeable future. During a panel discussion involving some of his fellow Hollywood stars for THR, the majors and other actors were asked about the dream roles they would most want to play if they could choose from any character in theirs. choice. For his part, here’s what Jonathan Jonathan Majors said when asked directly who he would most want to play if given the chance.
“Edward Scissorhands. Maybe I would try that. “
In addition to playing Edward, Majors also notes that he would like to “do the evolutionary homo sapiens biopic or play an animal,” like a CG animated T-Rex. The actor doesn’t expand on what exactly Edward Scissorhands is about it brings him to the role of the lead character, but like many of us, the movie may have just left an impact on Majors when he saw the one-of-a-kind movie.
Co-written by Tim Burton and Caroline Thompson and directed by Burton, Edward Scissorhands was released in 1990. It stars Johnny Depp as an artificially created humanoid whose hands are made of scissor blades, dipping into a romance with the teenage daughter (Winona Ryder) from a suburban family. The film is a cult classic and is widely regarded as one of Burton’s best works, and while there has been a comic book spin-off and stage adaptation, there has never been a reboot. or on.
The closest we came to a live follow-up for Edward Scissorhands was a Cadillac Lyriq commercial that premiered during Super Bowl LV this year. The ad saw Ryder reprise his role as Kim with Timothée Chalamet playing Edgar in Silver Hands, the baby she apparently had with Edward. He was received very well by fans, and while many seemed to be against the idea of a reboot or sequel, Chalamet’s performance had a certain need for Edward at the Silver Hands 2 to come up with the Dune star. in the role.
Majors has proven his acting skills on Lovecraft’s Land and other projects, so it’s not entirely impossible that we see something like this happen. Still, there doesn’t appear to be any movement on a possible Edward Scissorhands sequel or remake of any kind, so the role may end up becoming nothing more than a fleeting fantasy for the actor. Luckily, it’s not going anywhere with several other projects underway, and Lovecraft’s Land fans are hoping that will include a second season. This news comes to us from the Hollywood Reporter.
