Dolph Lundgren is a big fan of and knowledgeable about war history, which a lot of people probably didn't know about. In his movie War Pigs, the new World War II film, he stars in with Mickey Rourke and Luke Goss and it seems Dolph Lundgren knows it like the back of his hand. War Pigs involves a group of soldiers sent behind enemy lines to uncover a Nazi super-weapon.
A recent interview of Dolph Lundgren, the 57-year-old blond, buff, and tan actor, revealed a humorously indecent behind the scenes of the movie War Pigs, involving co-star Rourke (Lundgren's longtime pal).
Dolph Lundgren said, "I play this guy (Captain) Hans Picault. Rourke's giving me and Luke Goss, who plays this American lieutenant, orders on how to go after this German gun." Dolph Lundgren also said, "Oh Hans, what was the name of that little French girl you used to bang down in Marseille?" "It wasn't in the script. I say [in character, French accent]," "Oooh, I'm sorry, I can't remember." At the end of the scene, I say, "I think her name is Marie Louise." [Laughs] He's like, "OK, great. Dismissed." So, that was our first ad lib together. I don't know if they used the word "bang" back in 1944 but I guess he did."
Lundgren said that he and Mickey Rourke used to go out in the 80's to the Roxbury in Hollywood.
Dolph Lundgren and Mickey Rourke also worked together in the first Expendables. The old friends don't have any scenes together in the film, however, they were on the set together.
Dolph Lundgren was drawn in the film War Pigs, as the actor hasn't done any World War II settings before. And Lundgren likes the interesting characteristics of his role, which is a half-French half-German, living on the German border but fighting for the Allies.
Also, Lundgren said a thing about doing the movie Hail Caesar, "It's a smaller walk-on part. The Coens called me and wanted me to play this Russian character, and I told them I thought I'd played too many Russians already. But I read the script and it was very funny, and I understood why they wanted me for that role. It was great to work with them. I have a scene with Channing Tatum, and he was great and fun to work with."
War Pigs will be released on 18 September 2015.
