Talking about his involvement with Thor 4 at the “Ted Lasso” FYC event in Los Angeles, actor Brett Goldstein revealed a hilarious incident. He told Variety that he sent his parents to watch the film without letting them know of his small cameo in the movie. However, he revealed that he was concerned that his mother might miss his cameo in the film. He said:

“I didn’t tell anyone because Marvel put a chip in my neck that said ‘If you talk about this you’re dead,’” “My mom and dad, I sent them a text and said ‘I’ve just seen “Thor.”‘ I knew it’s not the kind of film they’d see. I said, ‘You should go see it. It’s funny.’”

“My mom is texting me all the way through the film giving me a running commentary,” Goldstein continued. “I’m like, ‘Just watch the film!’ It gets to the end bit, where it shows Russell Crowe… My mom texts me ‘Russell Crowe’s in it again, he’s very funny.’ I go, ‘Fucking look up at the screen!’”

You’re seriously thinking that you might not play Hercules?’… Then he didn’t tell me he bloody did it! So everyone was like ‘Brett Goldstein! Brett Goldstein!’ And I was like, ‘You cheeky bastard.’”
