Jamie Dornan Talks 'Barb & Star' Sequel Possibility & How Many Shirts He Ripped Off

Jamie Dornan is opening up about his role in the critically praised comedy Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar and if he’d be open to doing a sequel.

The 38-year-old actor chatted with Variety about getting to show off his comedic chops in the movie and that big musical number.

If you’ve seen the movie, which is available now on VOD, you know that Jamie rips his shirt off at one point. See it happen in the GIF below.

“We did that just two, maybe three times. And the first time it didn’t rip it all,” Jamie said. “I’m sure that footage will find its way onto some sort of blooper reel. So we had to like, cut it so I could rip it. Listen, even Hulk Hogan apparently cuts it at the top. So if Hulk Hogan needs help with ripping a shirt off, I definitely need help. I don’t even think I get ever got it off of the bottom.”

Jamie also discussed the possibility of a sequel.

“That’s a Mumolo/Wiig question,” he said, referring to the film’s writers and stars Annie Mumolo and Kristen Wiig. “I was hopeful that they weren’t gonna just turn and kill Edgar at some point towards the end. Because I was like, if this hits and people like it, there’s an appetite… I think they’ve definitely knocked around a few titles, let’s put it that way. We all had a bit of fun one day, coming up with destinations for for them to go on after. So listen, if they want to go again, and they want me to be involved, it would be the easiest yes of my life.”

Find out if that’s actually Jamie doing the singing and dancing!
