Dave Bautista snubbed from Star Wars twice

  • 6 years ago
Dave Bautista has auditioned for a role in 'Star Wars' twice before - but he's been snubbed every time.

The 49-year-old actor has admitted he'd love to bag a part in the upcoming 'Star Wars: Episode IX', which has just gone into production but is still adding cast members, or any of the future flicks in the sci-fi franchise, but he doesn't think his dreams are likely to come true given his past experience.

Speaking to Flickering Myth, he said: "I've actually auditioned for a couple of 'Star Wars' [movies] and they've turned me down. It was always a dream of mine to be in a 'Star Wars' film."

However, his chances of landing a role in the franchise look relatively slim at the moment as Bautista was among the stars to lash out at Disney after they fired James Gunn from 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.'

Responding to a fan asking if he would be back for the third film, Bautista tweeted recently: "I will do what Im legally obligated to do but @Guardians without @JamesGunn is not what I signed up for. GOTG w/o @JamesGunn just isn't GOTG.
