Robert Redford

Robert Redford


Robert Redford is one of the big new names to be added to the Captain America: The Winter Solider cast list - a movie that has just begun filming in the U.S.

The actor is set to take on the role of S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Alexander Pierce in the film but nothing more was known about the character that he is set to play.

But in an interview with The Straits Times the actor talked about tacking new and different movie roles before dropped a little hint as to what we might be able to expect.

"I think a career requires a certain amount of reinvention. If you get caught in one track I think that can be dangerous. Success has a dark side to it.

"You want to be careful if you’ve had success at something, that you not try and follow it by just duplicating it. That’s why I’m doing this Captain America thing.

"I like the idea of playing a villain... I did that just because it’s a different thing for me to do."

Captain America: The Winter Solider is the second stand alone movie for this character and will see Chris Evan reprise the lead role of Steve Rodgers.

Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson are some of the familiar faces on the cast list while Redford and Anthony Mackie are the big new additions.

Captain America: The Winter Solider is released 4th April 2014.
