Josh Peck is following in Tom Hanks’ footsteps in Disney+’s Turner & Hooch reboot. Josh stars as Det. Scott Turner Jr., the son of Tom’s character. HollywoodLife spoke EXCLUSIVELY with Josh at the show’s Los Angeles premiere about an appearance from Tom on the show. “It would be an honor to have him,” Josh told HollywoodLife. “Nothing would make me happier! I just would want him to know that I exist, really!”
The reboot does feature the return of Reginald VelJohnson’s David Sutton, who starred in the 1989 film. Josh raved about being able to work with such a storied actor like Reginald.
Josh gushed that Reginald is a “legend in every respect.” He noted that he’s inspired by Reginald’s continued ambition after decades in the business. “What is inspiring to me is he is in his late 60s and he could easily be chilling because he has accomplished so much, but he loves to work. That is exciting to me. I hope I am the same way!”
