We already know that Chris Pine is playing a bard in Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves but it looks like the Don't Worry Darling actor is fully invested in the character class. Pine just admitted that he thinks the bard is the best D&D class and he has an awesome explanation for why.
Chris Pine and the rest of the cast of Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves were in attendance at South by Southwest for the film's premiere and they answered a few questions from the audience. When a fan asked about the advantages of his character's class, Pine pointed out that playing a bard is the best (via Variety).
"I love being a bard so much," he stated. "No preparation. Lots of smiling."
Chris Pine certainly has a point there and it's possibly also the reason why most players choose the bard as well. Needless to say, we can't wait to see his character in action in Honor Among Thieves.
The film follows a group of thieves who make a huge mistake when they steal a relic for the evil Red Wizard who then uses it to create an army of the undead. To redeem themselves, the group set out on a quest to stop the Red Wizard and ultimately save the world.
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is directed by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley. The ensemble cast includes Chris Pine as the bard Edgin Darvis, Michelle Rodriguez as the barbarian Holga Kilgore, Regé-Jean Page as the paladin Xenk Yendar, Justice Smith as the sorceror Simon Aumar, Sophia Lillis as the tiefling druid Doric, Daisy Head as the Red Wizard Sofina, and Hugh Grant as the rogue Forge Fitzwilliam. The film will also feature the cast of the Dungeons & Dragons web series Critical Role in cameo roles.
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves hits theaters on March 31, 2023.
