 “I need somebody that’s going to do the opening fight scene of John Wick 3. So there’s some expectations there, with a guy that’s never been on camera or done stunts before. I’m like, ‘Yeah, no. I’ll pass.’”

He’s the guy that helped your movie become a box office hit. Sure, a lot of it has to do with Keanu Reaves, but don’t you dare question that Boban didn’t help.

I’m starting a push to get Boban more acting roles, preferably a lead. Everyone knows what a Boban is now.
