Don Cheadle: Fans slam ‘Ocean’s 12’ in my face, say it’s bad

2 min read

Don Cheadle has been a staple of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for nearly 12 years as James “Rhode” Rhodes/War Machine, but the MCU isn’t the only franchise under the actor’s belt. Between 2001 and 2007, Cheadle played explosives expert Bashar Tar opposite George Clooney, Matt Damon and Brad Pitt in Steven Soderbergh’s “Ocean’s Eleven” trilogy. Although the 2001 installment is universally beloved, more comedy proved to be the case with “Ocean’s.” Cheadle recently told GQ magazine that fans often come up to him with “Ocean’s Twelve” in his mouth.

“When we came back to do the second film, we hadn’t seen each other in a long time,” Cheadle said. “We were not all together. We were just reuniting, so we were hanging out for about an hour and then we realized, ‘Oh wait, we’re actually here to shoot something.’

Cheadle continued, “I love that the second movie is the one that people will feel free to come up to me and go, ‘Yeah, I hated that. That sucks.’ It’s like, ‘You just put it in my face like I’m not human, but it’s okay. Thanks.'”

“Ocean’s Twelve” may be divided among fans, but Cheadle said it was the most fun “Ocean’s” movie to shoot. “When we were in Italy, we stayed at the De Rossi Hotel,” he said. “We had the whole sixth floor to ourselves because we couldn’t really go anywhere. Paparazzi is an Italian word. We were really kind of isolated, but they were able to give us the whole floor and all our families were there. So my kids were there and Matt [Damon]Its kids were there and we traveled to Europe in this big group and it was so much fun. Everyone had a lot of fun together.”

Back in 2021, Cheadle said Entertainment Weekly That Soderbergh was toying with an idea for another “Ocean’s” movie to star the original cast. The franchise continued after the trilogy-ending “Ocean’s Thirteen” with the 2018 reboot “Ocean’s 8” starring Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett.

“We were talking about it [after ‘Ocean’s 13’]And then Barney [Mac] passed, and pretty quickly we were like, ‘No, we don’t want to do this,'” Cheadle told EW about making a fourth “Ocean’s” movie. “But I only did one movie. [Soderbergh] And he said, ‘I think there might be a way to do it again. I’m thinking about it.’ And it didn’t go any further than that. But I don’t know; I don’t know who will be in it. I imagine we will have the main team. It will be interesting to see.”

A prequel set in the later 1960s for the “Ocean’s” franchise. Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling lead the project, which is directed by Jay Roach.
