Redford wanted a different type of role...
Here Be Geeks spoke with actor Robert Redford about Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Redford will be playing S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Alexander Pierce.
According to Redford on the role of Pierce: "I think a career requires a certain amount of reinvention. If you get caught in one track I think that can be dangerous. Success has a dark side to it. you want to be careful if you've had success at something, that you not try and follow it by just duplicating it. That's why I'm doing this Captain America thing. I like the idea of playing a villain…I did that just because it's a different thing for me to do."
In the comics, Alexander Goodwin Pierce was a S.H.I.E.L.D. sleeper agent who served as a contact between Nick Fury and Tony Stark. He also fought with Hydra. Pierce was not actually a villain.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits theaters on April 4, 2014.
