One of the most loved moments of Glass Onion by fans of the famous Rian Johnson saga was certainly the one in which Benoit Blanc’s life was explored during the pandemic. In those small moments, Philip appears for the first time, the husband of the detective played by Daniel Craig.
The big surprise was to discover that the face of the character was none other than the king of nineties romantic comedy: Hugh Grant. The actor, during a recent interview with his colleague Chris Pine, spoke of Glass Onion not unbuttoning himself in a particular way as not everyone present seemed to have seen the film.
As the first reactions to the Glass Onion cameo poured in on social media, Grant spoke about what it was like to be a part of the world Johnson created. ” Yes, I’m married to James Bond,” said the actor ironically, recounting that he participated in the filming for a very short time. ” It’s a wee moment. I don’t really know why they wanted to do it, but still, I thought Knives Out was brilliant, and so yeah, I said why not ? I’ll show up for a few hours… “. The cameo fits perfectly into the domestic context of the pandemic in which, a Benoit Blanc in crisis, finds himself ardently searching for a case.
The second chapter of the Knives Out saga seems to have confirmed the already high expectations of the fans. If you want to find out more, we recommend our review of Glass Onion.
