Original Road House star criticizes McGregor’s scenes with Gyllenhaal: They are a little off to me

Marshall Teague is the original antagonist from the cult film “Road House”. He recently discussed the highly anticipated remake featuring Jake Gyllenhaal and Conor McGregor.

McGregor will make his Hollywood debut as the nemesis of Gyllenhaal’s character. Teague, who played the villain in the original film alongside the late Patrick Swayze, found the action scenes lacking.

“I gotta tell you. I, I watched it. In the fighting, the one thing I found humorous was the sound of the hits in the fight. I don’t know. They are a little off to me.”

Teague expressed his amusement at one aspect of the trailer for the new movie, particularly the sound effects used during action scenes. Despite his positive remarks, Teague acknowledged that due to Swayze’s passing in 2009 and his character’s fate in the original film, he and Swayze would not be making a cameo in the remake, as is customary in Hollywood.

Although the film will not receive a wide theatrical release, fans were left impressed by McGregor and Gyllenhaal when the streaming platform Amazon announced the movie’s release date on March 21, 2024.

McGregor’s role as Knox in the film marks his most significant involvement in a mainstream Hollywood production, already granting him the title of highest-paid debutant in the industry. Notably, while other professional fighters like Kamaru Usman and Georges St-Pierre have appeared in smaller roles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, McGregor’s role in “Road House” is prominent.

In his interview with TMZ Sports, Teague praised McGregor’s ability to portray the primary antagonist, highlighting McGregor’s experience playing “the chief bad guy” throughout his career. Teague’s positive assessment suggests that McGregor will excel in his role, further solidifying his reputation as a multi-talented individual adept at both fighting and acting.

As the sport’s biggest superstar and a successful entrepreneur, McGregor has amassed a significant fortune. Earlier, he teased the idea of running for the presidency of the Republic of Ireland via social media, receiving support from fighters and fans. However, he has not provided any recent updates on this matter.
