You’ll get to see Bill and Ted Face the Music yourself in September when the movie is released in theaters and on digital. However, at the movie’s [email protected] panel, moderator Kevin Smith shared a truly exciting tease about something that happens in the movie.
While discussing viewing the film for the first time, Smith let slip that George Carlin, who played Rufus in the first two movies, does appear in Face the Music. That is kind of a surprise, given that the comedian passed away in 2008. Rufus is in the final cut, though.
As for how that’s possible, chances are this has been done using archived and possibly unused footage from the first two films. It most likely won’t be a major role in the film, though knowing Face the Music is going to pay tribute to a beloved character–and actor, for that matter–is reassuring.
