Mel Gibson in black and blue After a recent fight with half of the rugby team with his friend, director George Miller asked him to re-enter his Mad Max audition. Because the agency was also sending toys, Gibson, who was just waiting, took pictures and asked him to come back when he was healed. When he had done this, Miller immediately gave him the part.
Furious Max Outside the Thunderdome they were waiting for an enemy who reflected his strength, an opponent who was on the level of Mel Gibson. Tina Turner beat out Jane Fonda and Lindsay Wagner for the role of Entity. About that casting, Miller said that one of the main reasons Tina Turner was cast was that she was perceived as a fairly positive person. You don’t think Tina Turner is dark. At Tina Turner’s core, you believe that things are basically positive. That’s what they wanted.
Singer Tina Turner played Aunty Entity, the brooding leader of Bartertown, a corrupt city devoted to trafficking and survival in the darkest, scatological ways imaginable. The character was rude, he wore bold clothes, which the artist did not like very much, but the scenes with Mel Gibson’s hearth, which also expressed all the singer’s praises, remained in his memory.
It’s been 38 years since Tina Turner and Mel Gibson fought each other in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.
