According to Vanity Fair, Carl Reiner, who played Saul Bloom in all three of the originals Ocean’s films beginning back in 2001, will appear in the upcoming reboot.
“Yeah, Ocean’s Eight, I think they’re calling it,” Reiner told Vanity Fair when asked about his cameo in the movie which starsSandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway and more. “And I got to work with my favorite actress, Sandra Bullock. I did one little scene with her, and it was such a pleasure. She’s a work of nature.”
As Saul, Reiner portrayed one of the older members of Danny Ocean’s team, and went incognito as various characters throughout the trilogy, including an arms dealer in the first film, a Swiss doctor in the second, and a hotel reviewer in the third.
The highly anticipated Ocean’s reboot, Ocean’s Eight, is so secretive that all we really know is which actresses (and now actor) will be teaming up for the latest heist. The cast includes Bullock, Hathaway Cate Blanchett, Awkwafina, Helena Bonham Carter, Katie Holmes, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling and Sarah Paulson.
Seriously, there is so much female star power, they really don’t need any of the original men to join their party. That said, we’re looking forward to seeing Reiner make a cameo in the movie, even if it’s a brief one.
Ocean’s Eight is set to hit theaters on June 8, 2018.
