Collider sat down with him last weekend, and Mr. Morgan let slip that he's stepping into the Red Dawn remake. (He also let slip a few f-bombs that he shouldn't have told anyone, but we're glad he did, aren't we?) "I guess I'm more or less the old Powers Boothe character ... I'll be the old guy in it, which is cool ... I'm very much looking forward to it. But I'm going straight from here to Detroit which I can't imagine at this point."
Morgan also planted the first flag when it came to playing the part of Lobo, soon to be the star of a Guy Ritchie film. "That would be cool. Lobo would be very cool. I don't think that I'm as big as Lobo is, but if you could, like, transplant Mickey Rourke's body on my head, that would be just great. But I don't know. It's an untapped world for me as well. Every time I kind of hear about something I go out and get the book or I look it up on one of your guys' sites. We'll see."
Well, if he's reading this one -- Mr. Morgan, I suggest that you try to nab an audition for Jesse Custer. He's one of the few American actors that has the right amount of grit. Or do a reversal on The Comedian and play the ever-so-good Captain Marvel / Shazam. Or jump the DC ship and try out a little Dark Horse with Fear Agent. Lobo sounds cool from afar, but you've already got the biggest DC badass under your belt with the Comedian. Go with something more charming.
