Space Force boss: Bruce Willis should have played me
News author: Lisa Bennett / 2020-05-08 13:37:47The boss of the American military organization Space Force couldn't immediately relate to Steve Carell who interprets him in a new Netflix show. John Raymond joked Wednesday that he hoped Bruce Willis would play him.
The commander had some advice for Carell, according to Reuters. «He looks a little too hairy for the Space Force boss,» said Raymond, who is bald. «So the only advice I have for him is that he go to the hairdresser.»
It is now a bit late for that: Netflix released the trailer earlier this week for the series, which can be seen on the streaming service at the end of the month. The real Space Force followed a day later with a recruitment movie that wouldn't have looked out of place as a movie trailer, including the slogan «Maybe your destination isn't on Earth.»
According to Raymond, there is quite a storm with interested parties for his organization, which will be the sixth part of the American armed forces to focus on space. The commander is now quite accustomed to the idea that Carell will interpret him. «I was hoping for Bruce Willis, but Steve Carell is a great actor. I love his job, so I'm looking forward to seeing it.»
