Karl Urban has been lined up for some pretty iconic roles lately — as the famed doctor in “Star Trek,” an evil vampire in forthcoming “Priest” and, soon, Judge Dredd — but he has another major mark on his resume with forthcoming “RED.”
The New Zealand-bred actor actually managed to put a dent in Bruce Willis’ head while shooting the action-comedy, throwing a coffee cup and actually nicking Willis’ bald head.
“That was a pretty grueling two weeks,” Urban told HitFix of the intense fight sequence. He mentioned that he managed to go “toe-to-toe” with the famouse Die Hard hardbody for a scene that “made an impact.”
“The physical commitment was huge,” Urban said of training, boasting of his now-“deadly skill set.”
