Jack Pery is treasuring working with his dad Luke Perry before the actor’s untimely passing.
Jack is a professional wrestler who recently signed with the highly-anticipated new wrestling promotion All Elite Wrestling. The 21-year-old opened up to fellow professional wrestler Chris Jericho on the latter’s “Talk is Jericho” podcast.
He will act alongside his dad in “Once Upon a Time In Hollywood”, out later this year. “I did some extra work,” Jack told Jericho. “He’s like, ‘I want you to be in the same film or collection of footage that I’m in.’ He was really adamant about it. I was like, ‘alright, dad. I’ll do it.”
“You may see me sitting behind someone special,” he added. The actor’s son also mentioned how willing director Quentin Tarantino was to have him in the movie.
Perry was 52-years-old at the time of his death. He suffered a massive stroke in his Los Angeles home on Feb. 27 and died five days later on March 4.
“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” premieres July 26 in Canada. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino, Dakota Fanning and more.
