Randall Park Explains Why Blockbuster Has “So Much Heart”

Upcoming News

Though Blockbuster chains are closed, the shop is alive and neatly for Randall Park.

The actor stars in Netflix’s upcoming sequence Blockbuster, which specializes in the employees of the final ultimate retailer of the DVD apartment chain. Although the nostalgic thought was once intriguing for Park, who performs the shop’s supervisor Timmy, the script was once what in point of fact drew him in. 

“There was just so much going on with these characters,” he told Entertainment Weekly Sept. 21. “There’s just so much history and so many complicated feelings, but also just feelings of real love and camaraderie…It just had so much heart. I think that that’s what really sold me.”

Those characters come with roles performed through Tyler Alvarez, Madeleine Arthur, Olga Merediz, JB Smoove and Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Melissa Fumero. Fumero will celebrity reverse Park as Timmy’s love passion and coworker, Eliza Walker.

After admitting he was once “intimidated” through the actress to start with, Park stated he “loves” Fumero. “She just came off of this iconic comedy show that I just loved—I was such a big fan of Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” he added. “When her name came up, I was like, ‘Yeah, that would be great, but we’re probably not going to get her, she’s Melissa Fumero.’ And then we got her! And she was just so great to work with.”
