Sage Northcutt Auditioned For Creed II
UFC fighter Sage Northcutt, has made it his goal to portray the son of Ivan Drago, the lead villain in Rocky IV. While Northcutt does look like the fictional Soviet super athlete, his photo-shopped images of him as Drago are not just for memes and jokes.
According to the UFC lightweight, he has made an audition tape with the hopes of landing the role of Drago’s son on the upcoming film, Creed 2 .
“Actually, you know what? The new Creed 2 movie is coming out, so I actually was going to audition for that. I got them a little audition tape,” Northcutt said at the MMA Hour.
“Hopefully that goes through. That would be pretty neat. Being the Ivan Drago’s son in the movie, that would be pretty fun.
“I just had the hair a little bit different, for the audition. I think me and Mr. Dolph Lundgren look kind of alike,” he continued. “I did that (tape) while I was in Sacramento and I’m hoping to meet them soon.”
Creed 2 is set to film early in 2018, with a planned release date on November. Michael B. Jordan will again star 26.
