Dominic Cooper and Robert Redford talk about roles in ‘Captain America The Winter Soldier’

Famous Hollywood actor Robert Redford seemed like an unusual addition for the second Captain America film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but even more odd is the confirmation that a young Howard Stark will also be making an appearance.

Talking with Total Film (the new issue, #208) Redford simply says the role is different.

“I’ve always liked all kinds of pitches. [Laughs] Curveball, fastball, slowball… But it’s very simple: I’m only doing it because it’s different. It’s not a major part,” Redford told TF.

“I have other films that I’m going to be doing now too, like A Walk In The Woods [an adaptation of Bill Bryson’s memoir, in which Redford will play the author for director Richard Linklater]. That’ll be Nick Nolte and I as two older guys trying to hike the Appalachian Trail and everything goes wrong. It’s a comedy, and I want to do a comedy. This was just a step along the way. I said, ‘This could be interesting and fun.’”

Additionaly Dominic Cooper offered little insight into his role, but seemed as surprised as fans of the film.

“I went off and shot something, but I can’t even work out how my character can be in it. Wouldn’t I be dead? But anything is possible”, he said to MTV.

“They are quite secretive about where they are going to go with the characters and how it will slot in, you have no idea. So you turn up, put your costume on and do as you’re told. I have definitely put the costume on. I have worn the costume and we have shot something, but how it’s going to enter into the next phase of what they are planning I don’t know. I sound so dodgy, I don’t even believe myself! I have shot some scenes”.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo Captain America: The Winter Soldier stars Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo and a reported cameo fromHayley Atwell, and Emily VanCamp as the new female lead.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier will open in theaters April 4, 2014.
