Appearing on TheTREND Talk, actor Edward James Olmos has confirmed that he’ll reprise his role as Eduardo Gaff from Ridley Scott’s 1982 classic “Blade Runner” for the upcoming sequel.
In the original film, Gaff is a veteran Blade Runner that works with the LAPD. Talking about returning to the role for Denis Villeneuve’s “Blade Runner 2049,” Olmos says:
“I signed a seven page non-disclosure contract. I did, my manager did, my agent did, everybody did. I couldn’t talk about it. I couldn’t talk about it to anybody about it. Guess what? This is the first time that I’m telling the whole world, that yes, I am going to be Gaff in Blade Runner 2049.”
Olmos adds that his one scene role is even smaller than in the original, which was just four scenes, but says the moment is a key one:
“Well, it’s not about Gaff, but it’s about someone who is going to try to find out certain things about us back then. My role is like it was in the original – that time I only had four scenes, in this I only have one. But again, it’s a poignant little scene.”
Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling also star in “Blade Runner 2049” which is currently slated to hit cinemas in October.
