Chuck Norris Up To Return For Another Cameo in Dodgeball 2


After a long wait, it appears that the sequel to the 2004 comedy Dodgeball 2 is finally in the works with Vince Vaughn and his team returning. While the filming of the movie is still a while away, speculation around the cast returning for the second game has already begun. One name that has been mentioned is the legendary Chuck Norris, who also made a cameo appearance in the original sports comedy.


Chuck Norris has not only become an internet meme legend, but he has also made a name in the film industry. During his recent appearance at Nashville Comic Con, the action hero was asked about the possibility of joining the new movie, to which he responded:

\”I haven\’t gotten a call about it yet, but it\’d be a lot of fun to make a return appearance.”

In the original movie, Norris played the role of a Dodgeball tournament judge. There is no reason why his character cannot show up again in the sequel. His appearance would be a satisfying moment for everyone, especially considering Norris’ continued popularity among social media users.

The movie industry is currently experiencing a trend of legacy sequels, where old franchises are being revived and receiving reasonable success with belated follow-ups. However, not every film that attempts to capture a new audience while pleasing old fans can be successful. The popularity of movies such as Ghostbusters: Afterlife and the upcoming return of Indiana Jones is mainly down to the original cast returning to provide a strong sense of nostalgia to the new story.

Justin Long, who starred in the original movie, suggested that he would love to do the sequel. However, he believed that Ben Stiller, who starred opposite Vaughn, was hesitant about reprising his role. Long said:

\”Of course I would love to do it and I hope that it ends up happening, but I think Ben is a little, what he told me on that podcast was that he\’s a little trepidatious about doing a sequel to something so beloved, something that people enjoy so much that. It\’s very risky, you don’t want to disappoint the fans, you want something just as good.”

As Ian Malcolm once said in Jurassic Park, sometimes people spend too much time wondering if they could, and don’t stop to ask themselves if they should. Although Stiller is still undecided, Vaughn has already confirmed that the sequel is worth doing and the project has been set with 20th Century Studios. It will be some time before we see if the script will be good enough to move ahead, but for now, it seems like the rematch is on.

It has taken a long time for Dodgeball 2 to get off the ground, but it now looks like Vince Vaughn and co are returning for a long awaited sequel to the 2004 comedy. While there is still a long way to go before the movie even starts filming, speculation about who may or may not be back for a second game is underway, and one name that has previously cropped up is the one and only Chuck Norris.


As well as being the stuff of internet meme legend, Chuck Norris also made a cameo appearance in the original sports comedy, and it seems he would be more than willing to do it all over again in the sequel. During his recent appearance at Nashville Comic Con, the action here was asked about the possibility of joining the new movie, he said:

Of course in the original movie, Norris played a Dodgeball tournament judge, and there is no reason why his character could not show up again in the sequel. Considering Norris’ continued popularity among social media users, it would be a satisfying little moment for everyone to see him back one more time.

The legacy sequel is alive and well right now, with 20-30 year old franchises seeing some reasonable success with belated follow ups and revivals. However, that doesn’t mean every film to try and capture a new audience as well as please old fans can be a success. Much of the popularity of movies like Ghostbusters: Afterlife and the upcoming return of Indiana Jones have been down to the original cast returning to deliver a strong sense of nostalgia to a new story.

Dodgeball didn’t really need a sequel per se, and previously star Justin Long suggested that he would love to do the sequel, but believed that Ben Stiller, who starred opposite Vaughn, was a little more reserved about possibly reprising his role. Long said:

“Of course I would love to do it and I hope that it ends up happening, but I think Ben is a little, what he told me on that podcast was that he’s a little trepidatious about doing a sequel to something so beloved, something that people enjoy so much that. It’s very risky, you don’t wanna s–t on the original, you want something just as good.”

Just like Ian Malcolm said in Jurassic Parksometimes people spend too much time wondering if they could, and don’t stop to ask themselves if they should. It seems that while Stiller is still on the fence, Vaughn has made up his mind that a sequel is worth doing, and the projects has been set with 20th Century Studios. It will still be some time before we see if the script turns out to be good enough to move ahead with, but for now, it seems like the rematch is on.
