Did you know that music and fashion icon Grace Jones actually turned down roles in two 80’s blockbusters? In this exclusive interview with Night Flight back in 1991, Grace Jones opens up about the movie parts she turned down citing the reason in most cases were that “they were shitty.” Now, in the case of Flash Dance I think she and her management team were on the money.  But not to be a part of classic cult Blade Runner? Wonder if there’s some regret there… in her defense, getting killed early on isn’t exactly anyone’s idea of a solid role.
