Woah! Glenn Plummer Reveals Why He Was About To ‘Kick Sean Penn’s A$$’

Posted On : November 6, 2016

Remember the 1988 movie, “Colors?” That’s like a cult classic now and it brings back some great memories of going to the movie theaters and having a blast back in the day. But for actor, Glenn Plummer, those memories aren’t quite chuckle material…it’s more like “I wish a MF’er would’ type of memory for him…see he detailed about this…


Screen Shot 2016-11-06 at 5.48.42 PM Glenn Plummer recalled the scene in "Colors,' where police officers, "Pac-Man" and "Hodges" beat the brakes off of him and what he did next. Duvall and Penn went off-script and got reality twisted with fiction says Plummer: Screen Shot 2016-11-06 at 5.48.52 PM GLENN PLUMMER ON ROBERT DUVALL- "So we get on set and these guys are running around and they're treating everybody like they're gang members. You know what I mean? Like talking...little advantages and stuff. Like we did a scene the alley way and the first thing that happened in that scene was that I was on my knees and Robert Duvall slapped me in the face with a notebook, like hard enough to put...a welp on my cheek. So that was the FIRST thing that happened, I was HANDCUFFED! [...] And I looked at him and I remember going "Aww man, it's like THAT? And I'm looking around and I'm wondering if anybody;s gonna do anything about it....nobody said anything." Screen Shot 2016-11-06 at 5.56.20 PM GLENN PLUMER ON SEAN PENN- Then came the time to film the scene when Sean Penn had to chase Glenn down the alley and that's when Glenn said the 'ish' REALLY hit the fan: Screen Shot 2016-11-06 at 5.51.11 PM

"I think he got upset because he wanted everything to be 'real,' but what ended up happening was he kinda felt like he wanted to do some extra sh*t. And he ended up slamming my face down on the car and in the scene I was wearing these shades. And at one point he slammed it and i took it with my elbows and then when I relaxed, he slammed my head back down into the car, busted my shades, ripped them apart and you know, gave me this whole like, reason to kill him. Then at that point I was like 'Okay you know what? This has gone too far.' So I stopped and I'm like 'Man...I'm not really a gang member, I'm not really 17, I'm not really seventeen motherfu*ka, I'm 27 years old, I'm a grown ass man... And if you slam my head down on this car again dude I'm fuc*in' you up.' [...] 'And all them cops you hangin' 'round with to get into character, and all these producers sitting around here who...don't seem to care that you over here trying to fu*k me up, they ain't gon' get to you fast enough before I kick your a$$.' So...you either stop doing this sh*t now, or me and you gon' be in this dirt.'"

Glad to see that they squashed their beef after it was all said and done, but geesh, the tension was on level 10! Screen Shot 2016-11-06 at 5.56.32 PM
