Chris Brown likes to “blow stuff up and shoot guns”
HollywoodNews.com: Rapper-turned-actor Chris Brown has revealed that he did almost all of his own stunts in new film ‘Takers.’
The ex-boyfriend of R&B star Rihanna stars as Jesse Attica, the youngest member of a group of bank robbers in the upcoming crime thriller. Brown, 21, told MTV News: “The most thrilling part about this movie is probably the stunts. “I do, like, 96 per cent of my stunts.”
The singer, who stars alongside Matt Dillion, The Wire’s Idris Elba, and US rapper T.I. in the new film, added: “Some stunts they wanna use the doubles; I don’t wanna use the double! And they’re like, ‘We have to for safety and insurance issues’. I think the most exciting parts are the stunts, getting to blow stuff up, shoot guns, you know what I’m saying – it’s all fun!”
The former ‘Dancing With The Stars’ contestant, who has starred in ‘The OC’ and 2009 movie ‘Blood Rogues,’ also revealed that he took the role in ‘Takers’ because it was different to his previous roles.
He said: “I didn’t just wanna do movies that had consistent dancing and singing. “I wanted to do stuff that pushes me as an actor at the end of the day…”
‘Takers’ is due to be released on August 27th.
