Idris Elba And Regina King On Which Characters They'd Trade Places With In 'The Harder They Fall'
The upcoming Netflix film, The Harder They Fall, centers on a longstanding quest for vengeance among Nat love and his group of outlaws and their rivals, the Rufus Buck gang. Within each camp, there’s no shortage of characters, from a trash-talking quickdraw by the name of Jim Beckworth to Gertrude “Treacherous” Trudy Smith, who’s quick to tell anyone in her group’s path: “We ain’t no nincompoop.”
Smith, played by Regina King, also doesn’t take kind to suggestions Buck is her boss, though her fierce loyalty to his mission shines through in every scene of the reimagined western. Still, Smith is self-determined, just like the actress who portrays her on screen, which is why when asked which role she’d play if she weren’t Smith, King said instantly, “I’d be Rufus.”
