Exclusive 1:1 Interview: RoboCop star Joel Kinnaman!

Feb. 10, 2014by: JimmyO

While Joel Kinnaman has worked steadily over the past few years in Sweden, it was the series “The Killing” where I had first noticed his earlier work. Now, the talented actor has found himself taking on the leading role of Alex Murphy in the remake of ROBOCOP which is opening this Wednesday. Thankfully, he is up to the task and gives a layered performance as a man-turned-machine without sacrificing the emotional aspects of the role.

During the junket I found Mr. Kinnaman to be incredibly down-to-earth. Generally the actors keep to themselves but he didn’t shy away from the press at all. When I stepped into the room he was incredibly friendly and asked questions with genuine interest as to who I was. Once the interview began we talked about performing while not being able to move and about playing ROBOCOP. He also discusses his thoughts of stepping into the iconic role. Joel Kinnaman is an incredible actor and one hell of a nice guy.

It's a massacre!!

The hive mind has spoken. Once there is a bit of hatred for a movie on this site the ridicule is harsh and endless.

Well if Joblo can tell Shia Le Boof to go away I can certainly say that Joel Kinnamons face annoys me. It might have made the film better if he had kept his visor down more. :)

His face annoys me. Where is Clarence Boddicker when you need him?

Total D-Bag

This guy is so full of himself, he thinks its a good thing to be cast as Robocop in a February launch with a supporting cast that did it for the paycheck. Besides Sam Jackson, everyone phones it in. But to be fair, there is no dial on Jackson, he is always at 11.

I think he wasn't bad in the film and that scene that he and JimmyO were talking about did have a lot of impact, but Kinnaman did have very little chemistry with Abbie Cornish and I guess I did miss the Robo-walk and Robo-voice Peter Weller so perfected.

I sincerely hope theyre going for R cause I cant imagine how RoboCop could be PG-13. That would be a huge mistake. If I have any say in it, I will fight very hard for it. It has to be violent.
