Sean Bean

Briefly: After dying in nearly everything that's he's starred in, it sounds like Sean Bean is poised to survive a feature film. THR has word that the Lord of the Rings and National Treasure star has landed a role in The Martian, the next sci-fi drama from Alien director Ridley Scott. The film follows an astronaut (Damon) who is stranded in a Martian colony and struggles to survive, hoping he can last long enough for NASA to organize a rescue mission. Bean will play a NASA flight director, presumably back on Earth, trying to sort things out. Bean joins an interesting assembly of talent that includes Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, Kristen Wiig and Donald Glover. The film arrives on November 25th, 2015.

    So he starts out the movie in grave peril and this is the one you think he will survive?
  • Brian Sleider
    Dont lie.
  • But the whole time it turns out Bean a figment of Damon's imagination therefore losing identity to the audience as 'living' and therefore dead. Boom. The Sean Bean martyrdom parade continues
    • Astroboy3000
      OR Bean is Damon's long dead father whom he talks to much like in "Dexter"
    Ok I get he dies a lot, but enough is enough. The meme or whatever is tired.

    One of the many reasons I'll always love Troy, Sean Bean had an awesome role AND he didn't die. Fingers crossed the same will ring true in Jupiter Ascending.

        He thinks everything is stupid. Dont mind him.
        • MSoslow
          ah ok. I guess i don't view the comment boards enough.
  • Guest
    or Bean was his father who dies years ago, and Damon has been speaking to his ghost a la "Dexter"
  • Rock n Rollllll
    Sean is the best and so is Ridley. Can't wait to see him in this movie.
  • Franklin Carpio
    I see Kristen Wiig and Donald Glover and immediately think its a comedy... hmm.
  • OfficialJab
