It's no secret that the new Dune adaptation has one of the best cast ever assembled. But did the A-list actors actually get along while working on Denis Villeneuve's sci-fi epic? Oscar Isaac was evidently comfortable enough with co-star Josh Brolin to the point that he compared the actor's head to something found in the Star Wars Universe.

Isaac and Brolin recently joined the rest of the cast for Twitter's Dune Trailer Debut Event Conversation. At one point, host Stephen Colbert asked Isaac what it was like working on the "unprecedented" sets and for some reason, the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker actor made a reference to another major sci-fi franchise.

"I'll just say that no set piece, no X-wing, no Millennium Falcon could compare to the sheer scale of Josh Brolin's head. It was massive, both literally and figuratively. It really made me feel like I was in an alien planet," Isaac said.

Yes, he really went there. Interestingly, Brolin didn't have a witty comeback as the rest of the cast dissolved in laughter. Perhaps he likes being compared to the Millennium Falcon.

Isaac plays Duke Leto Atreides while Brolin portrays Leto's master-at-arms Gurney Halleck which means the two spent a lot of time working together. Not surprisingly, this may have led to the actors being comfortable enough to joke about massive heads.

Dune is currently scheduled to premiere on December 18. However, it is believed that the film could get moved back to a later date. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
