'Jumanji' Sequel Adds Danny Glover to the Mix
"From Awkafina to Danny DeVito to now one of my action heroes, Danny Glover — it's been awesome having so many actors and OG legends raise their hands wanting to come and play in our Jumanji universe," star and producer Johnson told The Hollywood Reporter. "'Who turns into who?' will always be the fun magic sauce for our audience."
The 72-year-old Glover is not slowing down: Last year he costarred in "The Old Man & the Gun," "Sorry to Bother You," and "Proud Mary." And he executive-produced the Oscar-nominated documentary "Strong Island."
His upcoming movies include Jim Jarmusch's "The Dead Don't Die," "The Last Black Man in San Francisco," and the thriller "The Lighthouse," directed by his younger brother, Martin Glover.
