RED 2 Could Add Anthony Hopkins As Villain

Generally speaking, if anyone lists who they think the top 10 greatest actors still alive today are, and they fail to mention Sir Anthony Hopkins in that list, I just instantly tune them out from then on. For decades this Oscar winner has portrayed character from the powerful to the meek with a range of nuclear intensity to quietest humility. There has never really been an actor quite like "Tony" (as he once told me to call him… butI just can never seem to in his presence) and there probably never will be.

Word came out yesterday that the upcoming "Red 2" is looking to add Sir Anthony to the cast as the main villain. The film is already confirmed to have an iconic and legendary cast which includes Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker and series newcomers Catherine Zeta-Jones and Byung-hun Lee.

The one snag reportedly getting in the way of Hopkins joining the cast is a possible shooting conflict with "Thor 2" where he is set to reprise his role as the all-father Odin. They're going to have to see if they can work the scheduling out. I hope they can.

What do you think of the idea of Sir Anthony Hopkins joining the cast of "Red 2"? Let us know in the comments below.

    I agree that fewer people see anime. I have to admit that if my daughter's hadn't convinced me to watch Attack On Titan I would never have watched an anime series. Through that I was introduced to anime movies and other forms of anime. If they had not convinced me to watch some with them so we could talk about it I would never have seen any. This is not because I have a bias but simply because I had never really heard of anime and had no frame of reference for it. Spirited Away is a beautiful movie that truly is an experience. I liked Howl's Moving Castle. I have Princess Nonoke and Graveyard of the Fireflies on my list. Akira is on my "maybe" list, the trailers just don't appeal to me; not because they are anime but because the content of the trailer is not appealing. Period. Give it another generation or two of everyone being introduced to anime and whatever comes after anime as a matter of course; part of the life experience that includes Snow White by Disney and Toy Story by Pixar and Curse Of The Were Rabbit by DreamWorks and Whatever Comes Next by Whomever Comes Next. Give it time...

    Of course it's most popular how else can you quantify a "best" movie. You can't it's not possible. No one watched the Japanese movies so they don't win. It's really that simple. But also in money made they beat them So there's that.

    Why is there so much complaining about a fun movie bracket that nobody can truly say one movie is better. It's all subjective just cause your movie that nobody saw didn't win don't whine about it inform your friends make them watch it remember this is all for fun
