    Default Original Tron Actor Bruce Boxleitner Returning for Tr2n!

    I thought he was in Babylon 5 for years???

    Our friends at [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] have learned today that [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], who played Tron in the original Tron, will return for Tr2n. Details on his role were not revealed, except that he is currently shooting and also joins fellow cast members [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], Olivia Wilde, and Beau Garrett in the "next chapter" of the Tron adventure. Boxleitner, now 58 years old, last appeared on a few episodes of "Chuck" and "Heroes", although his acting career hasn't exactly been illustrious since kicking some computer ass back in 1982. His return will certainly be very welcome, as I probably remember Boxleitner more than Bridges.
    I've said it before, but the buzz that Tr2n is getting is quite tremendous, almost on par with James Cameron's [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], and yet this is still more than two years out. Boxleitner's return only means more good things for the sequel, especially because it sounds like Disney and director Joseph Kosinski aren't going to try and turn it into the kind of cheesy, family-friendly film that it's not. I know we don't know much about the story, but I'm thrilled to know that both Tron and Flynn are already back. I definitely can't wait to see what Kosinski is cooking up - I've got a feeling we're in for another groundbreaking movie!

    Indeed. I think that playing a main character in a big sci fi series for a number of years is illustrious enough....
