Terry Crews up for Luke Cage

Describes himself as “game” for the role

No major casting has been announced as yet for any of Marvel’s forthcoming Netflix shows, but Terry Crews has officially put himself in the running to head up the Luke Cage series.

Having long been touted as a fan favourite for any potential Cage casting, Crews had previously ruled himself out of the running, but this was before a TV show had been officially greenlit by Marvel…

“Anything can happen,” says Crews. “All I know is scheduling and all that stuff - anything can happen. I’m open to all kinds of things, but who knows? Actually I took myself out of the Luke Cage running a while back, just because it was people trying to put people against each other.

“[It was] Idris Elba vs. Michael Jai White and I’m like, ‘Wait a minute, this is not even greenlit! Can we talk to Marvel? Why are you talking to me? Don’t put me against my homeboy for a movie that’s not existing.’  I said, ‘Take me out!’

“I heard [it’s greenlit] but I haven’t gotten any calls,” continues Crews. “I’ve been hearing stuff like, ‘Oh you’re too old,’ and I’m like, ‘Man do my workout 20 years ago and we’ll talk about who’s too old.’”

Well, that’s us good and sold. Over to you, Marvel…

      I love Terry Crews but isn't he a tad old for the role? I was expecting someone in there early to mid thirties.

      I'm baaaaaaack. They tried to silence me but I survived like Megatron and Galvatron. Crews is fine, fitter than most blokes his age. Michael Jai wite would be great and Elba is Heimdall so a big no-no.
