Get your nostalgic life! Sean Astin has confirmed that he and Corey Feldman will both return the Goonies reboot. E! News caught up with
my pre-teen crush Astin while he promoted Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain (coming to FX this July), and got the answer straight from the horse’s mouth:
E! News caught up with The Goonies ringleader Sean Astin (Mikey!) at the 2014 ATX TV Festival, where he was promoting his new FX series The Strain, to get all the inside scoop on what could possibly be the most anticipated sequel in the history of sequels.
“My first thought when Dick said he was doing that was like, ‘Alright, maybe this time it’s true!’ I hope it’s true,” Astin told us. “I certainly like the idea of doing it. I don’t know if I’d be in it or not. If they really wanted us to be in it, I’m sure there would be some way to work it out.”
And one of Astin’s fellow Goonies is also down to once again follow in Chester Copperpot’s (RIP!) footsteps: Corey Feldman!
“We talk a lot. Corey and I are buddies,” Astin said. “Oh, he’s fired up. He’s ready to go.” So are we, Feldman. So are we.
I am not remotely surprised that Corey Feldman was down to be in the movie. I mean, it’s not like he’s got a ton of projects lined up. Astin will be playing
the evil lackey Jim Kent in The Strain.
