Frank Grillo has spoken to Entertainment Weekly about his Captain America: The Winter Soldier character Brock Rumlow, a.k.a. Crossbones, and reprising his role in the highly anticipated Captain America: Civil War.
“[The Winter Soldier] was only a taste of what’s to come with the next film, and I couldn’t be more humbled and excited, They just kind of called and said, ‘What kind of shape are you in? We’re going to need a body scan, They scan your body so that whatever you wear fits you like a glove.”
Grillo touched upon the physicality of the role: “He’s a badass, he is just vicious. I like the idea that it’s no holds barred. I was 15 pounds bigger when I did Cap 2, and I’ll put another 15 pounds on to do Cap 3. I love the physicality. It changes the way you look; it changes the way you feel. We all know what Crossbones represents in his world, so when they called me and said we gotta do the body scan, I was like ‘Okay!'”
Finally he reveals that he is excited about the other characters in the movie: “It’s going to be fun. I hear Iron Man is in Captain America 3—he’s got a big role—and the Black Panther. It sounds like this Civil War is going to be pretty interesting.”
Captain America: Civil War is set for release May 2016. The film is being directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chadwick Boseman and Daniel Bruhl.
