Reprising his role as Marshall Murdock
According to The Unofficial Rambo IV Homepage, veteran actor Charles Napier will be returning as Marshall Murdock – from 1985’s “Rambo: First Blood Part II” – for the upcoming, “Rambo IV”.
You’ll recall that Murdock was the fraudulent American official in charge of the operation (in “Part II”) that ordered that Rambo be abandoned, and all documentation of POWs be destroyed. Assumingly, he’ll be back to butt heads with captain bandana once again.
Aside from Sylvester Stallone, Murdock will be the only returning cast member from any of the earlier films. Richard Crenna, who played Colonel Trautman in the first three films, passed away quite some time ago – otherwise, he would unquestionably have been written into the film.
Napier’s other notable credits include “Austin Powers : The Spy Who Shagged Me”, “Philadelphia”, “Silence of the Lambs” and “Annapolis”. His next film is “BgFATLdy”, a comedy with Meredith Monroe.
