Vinnie Jones is Juggernaut
There was a time when Vinnie Jones was the hardcore soccer player that was willing to bite the balls off of any opponent. Since his debut as Big Chris in Guy Ritchie's Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Jones claims that he has done 28 whopping films; in only seven years. Though there may be a small few who have yet to recognize Jones as he pops in and out of films, the actor will definitely make his presence known as the hulking Juggernaut in X-Men 3: The Last Stand. If you saw the trailer, then you know this dude runs through walls.
Vinnie Jones on X-Men 3
The good people over at IESB have recently caught up with Vinnie Jones and got him to talk a little bit about his history in film, his love of soccer, his role in X3 and the recent re-shoots he has been called back for.
Q: You just recently finished some re-shoots for the X-Men: The Last Stand VJ: I am doing some Sunday as well.
Q: Wow… shooting it locally? VJ: London
Q: Going to London to shoot that? Is Brett going to be there or is it second unit stuff. VJ: Yeah Brett
Q: The script overall remain the same. A lot of the concepts that Matthew had brought on to script stayed on through Brett's vision as well, is what I am told.
VJ: Yeah that's right.
Q: Can you tell us how your character develops, this is obviously the first time we see you in the X-Men franchise. VJ: He [Magneto] breaks me out and says were going to war with the X-Men do you wanna come and I'm like yeah, I got nothing else to do today, lets do it. I become like his main gladiator, he has everyone, and he has Pyro and everybody doing their stuff. But Magneto knows when it gets really tough he sends Juggie in.
Though there have been some complaints about Juggernaut's size in X-Men 3, it is hard to deny that the costume looks pretty sick.
