Caruso ‘pissed’ at McGregor for missing xXx film

Makes Statement

Caruso says he was angry that McGregor did not appear in his film xXx: The Return of Xander Cage.

I wasn’t disappointed, I was really pissed. Conor had said yes he was going to do the movie [then] he went and got his ass kicked by Nate Diaz. After that, he sort of backed out but didn’t back out. We had liked Michael Bisping from the onset and so we reached back out to him and got him. I think it all works out for great reasons – and then to have Michael become the world champion while you’re getting to know him.

Diesel: McGregor left xXx to ‘get his manhood back’

Makes Statement

Diesel says that he wanted McGregor for xXx: The return of Xander Cage, based on his “English” accent. McGregor left the project to concentrate on his rematch with Nate Diaz.

I wanted to have an English accent in the movie. I had created a role for Conor McGregor and after he lost to Nate Diaz, he had to go to a dark place, he had to go get his manhood back to fight the second time, so he wasn’t able to do this film at the time…I wanted this English accent to be speckled in the movie. But I also wanted someone that could do fight sequences. A lot of the UFC guys do great fight sequences in movies. You saw when I put Gina Carano in 6, and Ronda Rousey in 7. I had great experiences when putting UFC fighters in the movie, so I wanted someone that had that English accent, they talk like this, and I got Michael Bisping to come and do that.
