Dune 2 Cut A Huge Marvel Actor

Tim Blake Nelson definitely isn’t bitter about Denis Villeneuve’s choice to remove his character from “Dune: Part Two.” “I was in a scene and the scene’s no longer in the movie,” he told Anthem. “I had a really cool cameo. It was a fun little part. But as it happens, movies are too long and they have to remove some stuff. I was unfortunately on the short end of that.[..] I don’t think I’m at liberty to say what the scene was. I’d leave that to Denis [Villeneuve] if he wants to talk about it. I had a great time over there shooting it. And then he had to cut it because he thought the movie was too long. And I am heartbroken over that, but there’s no hard feelings. I loved it, and I can’t wait to do something else with him and we certainly plan to do that.”

While it’s possible that Nelson will never again surface within the world of “Dune,” there’s also some hope there’s a larger role ahead for him and for Count Fenring. After all, his wife, Bene Gesserit agent Lady Margot Fenring (Léa Seydoux), appears in the film. Count Fenring is a more prominent part of the latter part of the book series as he’s a sidekick and close ally to Emperor Shaddam IV (Christopher Walken). Eventually, he goes into battle at the ruler’s side. 

Since Nelson appears willing and able to act in another of Villeneuve’s films, it truly seems like it’s all water under the bridge — and it’s quite possible that the character can enter the picture, either way. But there may be another actor whose work was excised from “Dune: Part Two.”
