Marc Maron is a stand-up comedian and actor who has made a name for himself with his hit podcast, WTF with Marc Maron. Recently, he opened up about his experience auditioning for a role in James Cameron’s Avatar 2, calling it “ridiculous.”
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Maron was asked about his experience auditioning for the role of a marine biologist in Avatar 2. He responded, “Why the f— would I want that job? It was ridiculous.”
Maron went on to explain that he was asked to do a “weird” audition, which involved him speaking in a “droning monotone” and speaking “in a language that was not English.” He said that he was “baffled” by the whole experience, and that he “didn’t understand what was going on.”
Maron also said that he was “fascinated” by the technology that James Cameron was using to make the movie, but that he was “not interested” in the role itself. He said that he thought the audition was “a waste of time” and that he was “glad” he didn’t get the part.
Maron’s experience is a reminder that even talented actors can be turned away from big projects. While Maron may not have been the right fit for the role, his comments show that he still has a great respect for James Cameron and his work.
Avatar 2 is set to be released in December 2021, and it will feature a star-studded cast, including Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, and Sigourney Weaver. It is the sequel to the 2009 blockbuster Avatar, which was the highest-grossing movie of all time.
