Dune: Part Two is all set to release in the theatres on March 1. Actor, Austin Butler, who is nominated for an Oscar, revealed candidly about playing the role of evil Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen in the Dune: Part Two movie.
During a panel discussion for his new Apple TV short series Masters of the ++Air at New York’s 92nd Street Y, on Wednesday he talked about his character as “ugly and bald.”
Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen is the aggressive and vicious opponent of Timothée Chalamet’s character, Paul Atreides, and the nephew of the villainous Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, played by Stellan Skarsgård.
In the few images that have been released thus far, Butler has undergone such a dramatic makeover for the part that he hardly seems like the same person. Butler revealed to the host that he drew inspiration for his act from “animals, like a snake and a shark” during a live taping of his Happy Sad Confused podcast.
The Elvis performer withheld any further information. This movie is based on the true events of Frank Herbert’s 1965 science fiction novel called Dune: Part Two.
Tim Blake Nelson, Léa Seydoux, Christopher Walken, Florence Pugh, and others have joined the cast of Dune: Part Two. The original cast members of the film, including Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Charlotte Rampling, and Javier Bardem, will return for their roles.
