Wyatt Russell aka Wyatt Hawn Russell has shot to fame after his stint as the U.S. Agent in falcon & The Winter Soldier. Here are some other movies Wyatt Russell starred in.
Escape From L.A.
Back then Wyatt Russell was just a little boy. He never knew his name would be so big in show business. But the casting directors of Escape From LA chose him as one of the extras in the movie. The sequel to the cult classic Escape From New York, Escape From L.A. did not do well enough at the box office. But it was one of Wyatt Russell’s first acting gigs and ignited in him a passion for the show business. He plays an uncredited role of an orphaned boy in the movie.
The filmmakers really took a liking to this kid or maybe it was just his fate. Wyatt Russell starred in uncredited roles in many Kurt Russell classics. Overboard is a romantic comedy that is still revered as one of the greatest of all time. But did you know Russell was also in this movie? He played the baby at the golf course in the film. That is something you did not know till today we reckon!! Not just that but after Overboard and Escape For L.A., Russell starred as a baby in another Kurt Russell classic – Soldier.
22 Jump Street
The sequel to the blockbuster comedy 21 Jump Street, 22 Jump Street saw Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum go to college. There they are trying to infiltrate a drug peddling ring that are selling a new synthetic drug called WHY-PHY. Wyatt Russell plays Zook Haythe in the film. His character is a college jock suspected of being a vital member of the drug ring. The actor actually does a good job considering the limited creative leg space he is given by the writers for his character. While we may never get a threequel, it is good to know that the actor has made headways into the comedy industry too before taking on serious roles like John Walker.
The Woman In The Window
The Woman In The Window was one of the most talked about psychological thrillers a short while ago. Amy Adams stars as an agoraphobic woman who witnesses a murder from her house. But someone starts playing mind games with her as she is led to believe all is not what it seems. Wyatt Russell plays David, an ex-convict who now lives as a tenant in Adams’ character’s home. He also does a bang on job to help build the critical atmosphere that leads to the climactic finale.
You thought John Walker is his most vicious role ever in Hollywood? Wait till you watch Overlord. A sci-fi Nazi nightmare, this paranormal thriller happens in the heat and heart of World War Two in German occupied territory. Wyatt Russell plays Lewis Ford, a Corporal who is tasked to lead a team and destroy a radio jamming tower. They soon discover secret Nazi plans to resurrect the dead. Overlord is not a very visually appealing movie, full of blood and gore of epic proportions. Even the ending, for Russell’s character at least, is kind of tragic. We suggest you watch it at your own risk.
Cowboys & Aliens
This was not going to his career’s high point by any chance. Cowboys & Aliens, to be honest, had so much potential. They all squandered it off because of a poorly written plot. Wyatt Russell played little Mickey, a character that had very little significance to the movie, plot-wise. Nevertheless the actor managed to star alongside acting heavyweights like Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford so we guess it was a win-win for him. It probably helped put him on the map, allowing him to star as U.S. Agent years later.
