There’s a story at The Wall Street Journal describing John Wick 3 and Boban Marjanovic’s cameo in the film.
If case you’ve been living under a rock, the Sixers’ free agent center makes a brief appearance as a villain who tangles with Keanu Reeves.
There’s a pretty funny passage in the write-up explaining how Boban was asked to kick Reeves’ stunt double during the filming of the scene:
When it was time for action, (director Chad Stahelski) directed him to kick (the stunt double). Boban, being a nice guy, said, ‘No, no, no, you don’t really want me to kick him,’ Stahelski said.
No, no, no, they said. That was exactly what they wanted. Only when they assured him that it was (the stunt double’s) job to get kicked in the chest was Marjanovic comfortable mangling his friend. We had calculated the stunt man was going to land about eight feet away, Stahelski said. He landed about 15 feet away.
How about that? Boban kicked a grown man a full 15 feet across the set. The director explains that they had to do the take a second time, because Boban immediately apologized and messed up the shot.
Boban should have come up with some clever one liner after the kick. Something like this:
