If the time ever comes for a live action reboot of Blade, we know at least one guy who would toss his hat in the ring.
Harold Perrineau (“Lost”, The Matrix), star of G4’s animated “Blade” series spoke recently about his desire to inhabit the role in a larger way.
Speaking to the LA Times he said, “I actually went back and watched the movies when I got the job. I wanted to make sure that my Blade was more similar to his than not. And one of the things I was looking for was how much swagger he has. Wesley played this really fine line between having swagger and the cool lines, with just playing it straight with emotion. It was cool to watch. He wasn’t always swaggerific — if that’s a word.”
He then goes on to say, “You know what … I would shave my head and get into the gym tomorrow if they said that I could play Blade. I’d be in the gym pumping iron, doing kung fu… I would love to play Blade live-action. I think the character is ridiculously cool. I’m never going to be as cool as Wesley Snipes was, but I’d give it a shot.”
