“It’s an interesting question because, could you? Sure. But, I’m not. I’m not,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “It would just depend on certain factors, a number of things, but most importantly the quality of the script and the role.
“But they haven’t talked to me, they don’t want me in it, I don’t think,” he continued. “I probably would’ve heard something by now. But either way, who cares? It’s awesome that they’re making it, and I’m excited to see them do it.”
