Come on, Hollywood! Show Robert Redford a little more respect! He is a knight, after all…
While at Sundance, Redford spoke up about how he never gets asked to be in movies anymore.
Here's what he had to say about it:
"I ask the question — I say, 'Hey I'd like to be [in that movie]' and they say, 'Would you? You're kidding.' And I say 'No.'"
"Something is happening over the years that makes a lot of people think that I don't do this anymore, when the truth is, it's what I enjoy most."
At least it seems like he's finding SOME work. Here are a couple of roles he's got on the horizon:
- A major role in a Jackie Robinson bio-pic
- A starring role in an adaptation of Bill Bryson's A Walk in the Woods
We're totally on board for a comeback of SIR Robert Redford!
If Mickey Rourke can do it…
Would U like to see Robert Redford become a big-screen presence once again?
