News: Edward James Olmos Confirmed To Return In Blade Runner 2049

Edward James Olmos will be returning to Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049.

He will be reprising the role of Eduardo Gaff that he portrayed in the original film. He was able to open up a little bit about the film and his involvement in an interview with TheTRENDTalk, saying that:

“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.

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.”

The film will be released in theaters on October 7, 2017.
