Peter O'Toole Died - Was Interested in TRON Role

on Monday, December, 16, 2013 9:35 PM
The actor PETER O'TOOLE passed away a day or so ago. Others have a far more developed sense of TRON trivia then I, but I remember reading that he was interested in playing Sark/Dillinger in the original TRON but couldn't grasp the concept of CGI animation and that the tanks wouldn't be real.

Perhaps there ought to be front page news article about his passing, if only to update the front page (the last update was about a month ago).

I think I had heard he was also being considered for the Tron role.

What do you want? I'm busy.


Program, please!


Chaos.... good news.

Yeah, I heard this news minutes after it broke and immediately thought of his ties to Tron.

In the film audio commentary, they explain how O'Toole really wanted to play Tron. Lisberger said something like he was leaping from hotel furniture to hotel furniture, pretending he was Tron... trying to convince Lisberger and company to let him play the role of Tron.

R.I.P. Mr. O'Toole... almost Tron, and forever a part of Tron's legacy.


I'm getting out of here right now, and you guys are invited. ------^

yes O'Toole has quite the spotlight in the original's special behind the scenes discussions. He wanted to be tron, if not, sark. And since i watch those features over and over, i will remember him for many years. RIP sir
