The two were surprised to see their son in the blockbuster, though there was a stretch of time when Goldstein worried that his mother would miss his brief appearance.

    “My mom is texting me all the way through the film giving me a running commentary,” Goldstein continued. “I’m like, ‘Just watch the film!’ It gets to the end bit, where it shows Russell Crowe… My mom texts me ‘Russell Crowe’s in it again, he’s very funny.’ I go, ‘F***ing look up at the screen!‘”

    As for his future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Goldstein is adamant that he has no idea what’s in store for his Hercules. “I truly, honestly — this isn’t me lying or being coy — I know nothing,” Goldstein said. “All I know is what I did that day and that’s it. That could be it. It was a fun three seconds.”

    Goldstein’s ‘Ted Lasso‘ co-star Hannah Waddingham recalled the time her fellow actor confided in her regarding the Marvel role. “He said to me, ‘I’ve been offered this thing… Do you guys think I should do it?’” Waddingham said. “I went, ‘Are you mental? Are you actually having a little bit of a moment? You’re seriously thinking that you might not play Hercules?’ Then he didn’t tell me he bloody did it! So everyone was like ‘Brett Goldstein! Brett Goldstein!’ And I was like, ‘You cheeky bastard.’”

    Goldstein also shared his reaction to the impressive number of Emmy nominations that ‘Ted Lasso‘ scored for its second season. The Apple TV+ series has matched its nomination total from last year, earning 20 nods across various categories, including best supporting actor in a comedy series for Goldstein.

    It’s surreal because it was so surreal last time,” he said. “My brain hasn’t gotten used to any of it. It hadn’t gotten used to it in Season 1. I don’t know if we were expecting anything again. It felt so magical the first time. Well, we got back in again.”
