Our suspicions were correct. Guardians of the Galaxy star and pro wrestler Dave Bautista is joining Blade Runner 2.
Over the weekend, Bautista teased a role in the highly anticipated sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 science fiction classic. He was seen holding an oragami unicorn. Today, he took to Twitter to post a video confirm what everyone already thought.
“As speculated, I am proud and privileged and honored to announce that I am joining the cast of the new Blade Runner!” Bautsita said.
I’m so excited to be able to share this news! Thank you for your support in everything I do. It’s humbling. pic.twitter.com/1hlRfdLF6v
