Remember this guy?
Edward James Olmos has confirmed that he’ll reprise his role as Eduardo Gaff from Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner sequel.
In the original film, Gaff is a veteran Blade Runner that works with the LAPD. Talking about returning to the role for Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049, Olmos says:
“I signed a seven page non-disclosure contract. I did, my manager did, my agent did, everybody did. I couldn’t talk about it. I couldn’t talk about it to anybody about it. Guess what? This is the first time that I’m telling the whole world, that yes, I am going to be Gaff in Blade Runner 2049.”
However, don’t expect a very big role;
“Well, it’s not about Gaff, but it’s about someone who is going to try to find out certain things about us back then. My role is like it was in the original – that time I only had four scenes, in this I only have one. But again, it’s a poignant little scene.”
The movie will be released this October and star Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling.
