Kevin Durand recently spoke to The Source about his role as The Blob in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
“I wasn’t a comic book kid because I was busy playing hockey here in Thunder Bay. That’s all I wanted to do and all I dreamed of really. But when I saw the first (X-Men film), I was just in awe and the second one (X2:X-Men United) just blew me away,” he said.
When he heard the news a new installment was in the works, he was hoping the producers would consider him for a part and luckily for Durand, they already knew his name and called for him to take a look at the part.
And to get the larger than life Blob ready for the cameras, it took six months of costume and special effects preparation.
“I have a feeling people are going to like him,” Durand said.
I think people will like him because The Blob is big, fat and stupid. I pray we get some of this goodness in the movie.
