Luke Perry’s son, Jack, 21, recently revealed he will appear alongside his late father in his last film.
While appearing on Chris Jericho’s “Talk Is Jericho” podcast, Jack, a professional wrestler, shared that he is featured in an extra in a scene with Luke in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”
This is the last film Perry will appear in after his sudden death in March 2019.
“I did some extra work,” Jack said about his father’s wish. “He’s like, ‘I want you to be in the same film, or like collection of footage that I’m in’ … and he was really adamant about it. I was like alright dad I’ll do it.”
“So you may see me sitting behind someone special,” he continued.
Jack said that his father was thrilled to be starring in the upcoming film.
“My dad was so excited about that,” he said. “That really kind of reinvigorated him and reenergized him. Because he liked “Riverdale,” but it was work, it was like his job. He told me — he’s like ‘this is like you getting to wrestle Chris Jericho.”
“He said, ‘If I never work again, I’m happy with this,'” Jack added.
The wrestler said that Tarantino, whom he described as “a really cool guy,” told him, “‘I handpicked your dad for this.'”
“I guess because his role was kind of symbolic,” Jack continued. “He definitely knew he wanted my dad for it.”
Perry’s son said he’s excited to see the film, which hits theaters in July.
“It’s like a nice little send-off I guess,” Jack said. “I’m glad he got to do that.”
During the podcast appearance, Jack discussed his father’s tragic passing.
“The whole thing was just so strange,” he said. “It still doesn’t really feel real to me. It happened so quick and just kind of out of the blue.”
In an Instagram post, he said, “He loved and supported me in everything, and inspired me to be the best that I could possibly be.”
