Disney has been releasing a few clips over the past month, including the introduction of Olivia Wilde's character Quorra, the "You're Here" clip which reunites Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) and Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), and the "Sirens Dress Sam" clip featuring Beau Garrett. Today we're treated to yet another new clip, this one featuring original TRON star (and I'm proud to say a man I've played a spectacularly bad game of pool with) Bruce Boxleitner, reprising his role as Alan Bradley from the first film. Bradley visit Sam Flynn to let him know about a communication he received from Sam's father Kevin. If you've seen the trailers, chances are you've seen most of this scene already, but it's still very cool to see Boxleitner do his thing. I asked Bruce in an interview (which will be posted soon) whether or not his character of Tron will appear in TRON: LEGACY as well. We know Clu 2.0 plays a major role in the film, but what about Tron? After all, the film has that character name in the title, so it would only make sense if somehow Tron plays a major role in the movie, right? And what did Bruce have to say when I asked him that question? You'll have to wait for the interview to find out. Sorry. In the meantime, check out the clip below, and tell us your thoughts in the comments.
