Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea has expressed his desire to play Popeye in a live-action movie if another one ever gets made.

Taking to Twitter this past weekend, the musician and actor – who recently starred as a bounty hunter in Disney +‘s new Star Wars series Obi-Wan Kenobi – pitched the idea of ​​him taking on the role of the much-loved cartoon sailor.

“If a good director decides to make a popeye movie, I’m your man,” he tweeted on Sunday (June 19).

Although he’s predominantly known as the bassist for the California rock titans, Flea has been acting in TV shows and major motion pictures for decades.

Some of his most notable roles include Back To The Future II and III, The Big Lebowski, Baby Driver, Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas, The Chase, My Own Private Idahoand he’s voiced characters in The Simpsons, Family Guy and American Dad.

Created by EC Segar, Popeye initially started off in 1929 as a comic book. The character made its way to the big screen in a 1980 with the release of a live-action musical directed by Robert Altman and starring Robin Williams as the titular character.

Whether a new Popeye The movie is in the works is not known at this point, but judging from the responses to Flea’s tweet it looks like people would be into the idea.

Hollywood Heights Actor Meredith Salenger was among those in his replies, telling the bassist: “Robert Altman’s was one of my favs. Robin Williams. The set. The music – Harry Nilsson. Shelley Duvall singing ‘he needs me’ (later used in punch drunk love). Perfection. And yes… you would be perfect casting. “

Meanwhile, Red Hot Chili Peppers are currently in the middle of their world stadium tour in support of their new album, ‘Unlimited Love’the band’s first since 2016’s The Getaway ‘and the first to feature long-serving guitarist John Frusciante in over a decade.
