Hollywood legend Dennis Hopper was shocked after watching his new movie Swing Vote because most of his scenes had been cut.

The veteran actor plays Donald Greenleaf in the comedy, co-starring Kevin Costner and Kelsey Grammer, but insists some of his best moments were left on the editing room floor.

The Easy Rider star tells the New York Daily News, "I got cut out of that movie. My (character's) subplot was completely cut."

 

He goes on to say, "There's a scene we shot where I ditch all my events to go support a young Mexican waitress at the funeral of her grandfather. It was chopped."

 

Adding on to earlier comments Hopper explains, "It was important to the development of my character and it's missing. It's probably because they thought it was too long but when I saw the final cut I thought 'I'm not even in this movie!'"
