Jonathan Majors is one of the biggest stars in the world right now. Fans are becoming acquainted with his talents thanks to some roles in huge films. For instance, he just played Kang in the latest Ant-Man film. Moreover, he is the villain in the brand-new Creed film, which has proven to be a massive success. Overall, Majors is a phenomenal actor and he certainly deserves more fantastic roles. Thankfully, numerous directors are taking notice, and he has some very interesting projects on the horizon.

While speaking to the Associated Press, Majors let it be known that he is going to play Dennis Rodman soon. This will be for the new movie 48 Hours in Vegas which is the working title right now. Overall, this is supposed to be a movie about the time Dennis Rodman left the Chicago Bulls in the middle of the 1998 season. Subsequently, Rodman went and partied in Las Vegas as opposed to playing with his teammates. It was a very bizarre saga, and now, Majors will get to showcase it all on the big screen.

Jonathan Majors Speaks

In the interview above, Majors revealed how he is looking to get into the Rodman mindset. Essentially, he wants to sit down with Rodman and really get a feel for who he is as a person. “Hopefully I get to sit with him and chat with him when we get closer and try to get the script right; all these things, all these industry things,” Majors said. “I never really put a ceiling on myself but this is definitely a role where I’m definitely going to make sure I’m pushing that ceiling out. Because he demands that. You know, he’s such a full individual so he’s going to demand a lot. I’ve got to figure out how to get that.”

This could truly prove to be the role of a lifetime for Majors. Overall, he would be the lead actor in the film. Furthermore, Rodman is such an oddball to the point where if Majors plays him correctly, he will be seen as an actor with a ton of range. Hopefully, we get more details on this project, very soon. Let us know what you think of it, down in the comments below.
