Surprise!! — Post Malone will show off his acting chops in the reimagined “Road House” movie … and judging by what Jake Gyllenhall had to say about the casting, the dude is a natural in front of the camera.
The Academy Award nominee revealed the “Rockstar” crooner’s involvement in the upcoming Prime Video project on Tuesday … showing Posty all bloodied up on set.
It’s an announcement that is catching folks off-guard — Malone wasn’t featured in the trailer that dropped last month … but he’s getting the full treatment now.
In fact, PV released a poster image of Malone — real name Austin Post — in a fighting pose for the promo … featuring the caption, “Come and get it.”
Gyllenhall clearly thinks highly of what his co-star did in the movie … showering him in praise on social media.
“A man of many talents,” Jake said minutes ago. “To say it was a pleasure working together is an understatement. Welcome to the #roadhouse @postmalone!”
It won’t be the first time fans get to see Posty in Hollywood — he’s also done work with Jason Statham and Mark Wahlberg in the past … but this is seems like his biggest role to date.
The flick is proving to have a ton of star power — UFC superstar Conor McGregor got a lot of shine in the trailer as his villainous character, “Knox” … and names like Darren Barnet, Lukas Gage, Jessica Williams and Daniela Melchoir landed roles as well.
You could say this movie’s really gonna pack a punch!!
