FINALLY! I’d been waiting for someone to post this Jason Momoa interview from UFC 132 for weeks, WEEKS, I TELL YOU! And finally it’s online. I liked it so much because, aside from the leather bowler hat/leather-vest-over-black-wifebeater combo, which is delightful, Momoa seems drunk off his ass, and not in a pathetic, Hasselhoff way, just buzzed to the point where you can see him sort of forget he’s on camera and just ramble on like he and Goldberg are broing out at Hooters. It’s BRONAN THE BARBRONIAN! That would be a way better movie.
Aaaaaanyway, coming off his critically-acclaimed, hate-f*ck-filled performance as Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones, Momoa is set to star in the nu-metal Conan the Barbarian remake opening next week (which unfortunately was directed by the guy who did the Nightmare on Elm Street remake). But that’s not all. Apparently the studio has plans for a sequel. Wait, did I say the studio? What I meant was that Momoa has plans for a sequel. That he wrote. God, I love this dude.
CRAVE Online: Are you signed on to do another [Conan]?
Jason Momoa: I am, as long as people go out and watch [the first one], you know what I mean?
CRAVE Online: Yeah. Is there a story you’d like to do for the next movie?
Jason Momoa: I wrote it.
CRAVE Online: Did you really?
Jason Momoa: Yeah, so we’re waiting to see if they’ll accept it.
CRAVE Online: Is it original or did you adapt it from something?
Jason Momoa: It will mostly be… It’s character-adapted, because I really want to get into more of the mythical creatures, you know?
I don’t know if I’d want to watch the movie, but I would pay at LEAST twelve bucks to read that script. Especially the part about the mythical creatures.
And if Dana White’s goon squad ends up pulling the video at the top of this post, I think I can sum up the interview in two frames:
