New Interview with Logan Marshall-Green

TheReelBits website have a new interview up with actor Logan Marshall-Green who plays Holloway in Prometheus. There’s no major spoilers or anything but he does talk at length about his experiences filming on set.

What can you tell us about your character?

I play Charlie Holloway, who is a scientist and the love interest of Elizabeth Shaw, Noomi Rapace’s character. They are a team. If she’s the brains, he’s the legs.  I wouldn’t go so far to say muscle, but he’s the legs. He’s the one who leaps before he looks, and sometimes it hurts them as a team but a lot of the times it’s helped them.  He takes a lot of chances and so far so good. This mission is one of the chances. The beautiful part is Noomi and I are teamed, but we actually differ in our philosophies as to exactly what we want or what we believe. She’s the believer. I’m the scientist. I’m the skeptic.  I’m the atheist, if you will. But we complete each other, for lack of a better word. We make a whole in that sense. I think its what’s drawn the characters together romantically as well. It’s just this kind of respect, full respect but my skepticism matched with her beliefs, her faith.

Thanks to PrometheusMovieNews.com for the tip.

    Sounds like Hudson to me...

    It really doesn't. Hudson was macho, sure, but the rest of the group was calling him on it and putting him in his place constantly.

    "You ever been mistaken for a man?" - Hudson
    "No. Have you?" - Vasquez

    "Sir, how do I get outta this chicken shit outfit?" - Hudson
    "You secure that shit Hudson." - Apone

    "We got nukes, knives, sharpsticks...!" - Hudson
    "knock it off, Hudson!" - Apone

    "Smoking or non-smoking?" - Hudson
    "Just tell me what you're scanning for, private." - Gorman

    "Yeah man, but it's a dry heat." - Hudson
    "Knock it off, Hudson." - Apone

    "Oh that's great. That's just ****ing great man. Now what the **** are we supposed to do? This is some really shit now man!" - Hudson
    "You finished?" - Hicks

    "What are we gonna do!?" - Hudson
    "Maybe we could build a fire, sing a couple of songs, why don't we try that?!" - Burke

    "Well why don't you put her in charge!?" - Hudson
    "Hudson! Listen to me; Just deal with it, because i'm sick of your bullshit." - Ripley

    "It ain't half fair man!" - Hudson
    "Hudson give us a break!" - Vasquez

    "Think of what!? We're ****ed! We're doomed!" - Hudson
    "SHUT UP!" - Hicks


    I'm seeing no indication anyone is telling this immature fool to shut his macho, arrogant, douche baggery up.
    I have no real view on the character or the performance yet - not enough to go on.

    But I love Bill Paxton - he was perfect as Hudson.  I really liked the way they took him past the edge where you saw he was struggling with real fear and even a degree of cowardice in the face of the unknown.  But he died a man!  Bill always does in the end.

    I will say that I'm expecting both Holloway and Shaw to have their characters worldview challenged and changed, and I do hope LMG is up to the task as I know nothing about him as an actor vs the rest of the main cast who are all more than good enough to pass muster.

    the LMG apologists
    Yeah, no. Those willing to reserve judgment.

    Also, putting every keyword of your post in bold and with an underline doesn't really sell what you're trying to say; kinda over emphasizes it.

     ;)

    Yeah, no. No... Maybe!

    You know something? It's getting really hard to argue with some of the people on here because they all look like Charlize Theron, and I can't think straight whenever she's around.

    Well not quite, as at least I dont stick out like an ugly sore thumb in amongst an otherwise excellent cast of performers in the most anticipated and what looks to be the most visually stunning epic scifi outing in decades

    the LMG apologists cant seem to get it into their skulls that its NOT the character of Holloway that is grating, not the immature, macho, 'wooh pepsi max' personality of the character that is irritating, but what is very grating is that LMG just doesnt sell any believability in this role from the little weve seen so far.

    Paxton as Hudson was completely believable in that role and had me totally sold, he didnt look like he was acting, he nailed the character and you bought it completely

    By comparison LMG's performance (the brief snippets of it we've glimpsed so far) is cheesy, hammy and makes me flinch in the same way you would when you hear an obvious and loud bum note come out of the otherwise pitch perfect string section of the London Philharmonic

    He looks and sounds like he's acting.............and badly............and THATS the problem.............NOT the character he's playing

    "Himbo?"  Really?

    I get that it's not supposed to have mushy stuff like romance in the big cool science fiction movie or whatever, but I don't see too much wrong with LMG.  He's playing a headstrong guy who gets in over his head and clearly will pay a nasty price.  I think labeling Holloway a douchebag in a high school letterman's jacket based on limited material viewed is a bit much and a lot of projection.  He's far from my first interest in the supporting cast - I'm much more into Rafe Spall, Sean Harris and the positively obscure Kate Dickie - but he seems alright for what he does.

    As for the line to Vickers, it's an obvious line in a genre script.  But I also thought he delivered it a bit facetiously, trying to tweak her.  Because what else is Holloway going to do with the corporate suit?
  7. Ash 937
    "Ms. Vickers, is there some kind of agenda you aren't telling us about?"

    That is a pretty clumsy line, considering that, um, there most definitely is an agenda. These writers really need to work on their foreshadowing. ;)

    What if Vickers answers, "No" and the rest of the film is how the crew of Prometheus and her use teamwork to solve their problems?  Or what if Vickers isn't informed about any special agenda and only finds out later that she's been manipulated along with the crew of Prometheus.

    But I do agree with you in the sense that nobody would ask a question as blatant as that to anybody unless they were a complete idiot.  LMG's character looks too clean cut for such stupidity.  That line would be more suited to the guy with the tattoos on his head because he already looks like an imbecile.

    Okay -- I'll admit that line came off less convincing then I would have liked. But other than that, I feel indifferent towards LMG. No love or hate. Just going to wait till June to get a better feel for the character.

    Thanks for compiling those quotes together! That was fun reading.

    It should be interesting to hear Ms. Vickers reply to LMG when he obtusely askes, "Ms. Vickers, do you have an agenda here?"

    I hope she melts his face with laser beams from her eyes.

    Edit: Obtuse (adjective) 1. Annoyingly insensitive or slow to understand.  :D

    If Sir Ridley directed LMG to be obtuse, then he nailed it.

    He hasn't come off like a pompous asshole, more like a headstrong child. I have heard no dialogue that supports the 'pompous asshole' theory.
    I heard that the egotistic psycho bit is after he has already been implanted. Oh and he doesn't write his own lines either. Though he still looks strange in the movie, straight from the start. As if he Vaselines himself down is the best way I can put it. Of course I didn't know who he was till Prometheus so he better be awesome. Just kid. :P

    I play Charlie Holloway, who is a scientist and the love interest of Elizabeth Shaw, Noomi Rapace’s character. They are a team. If she’s the brains, he’s the legs.  I wouldn’t go so far to say muscle, but he’s the legs.

    This relationship reminds me of Blaster Master from Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome.  Anybody see that?  Blaster Master was the name shared by two characters in that film.  One guy, referred to as Blaster, had down syndrome and was really strong.  He carried Master, a quick thinking little person who gave him orders.  Blaster was the legs, Master was the brains.  Together they were known as Blaster Master.  Blaster was eventually killed in the film and Master was left to fend for himself.  I'll bet that Charlie Holloway will get killed and leave Shaw to fend for herself.  This happens all the time in these kinds of movies.
    Now I know where Master Blaster the male stripper got his stage name from. Thank you.
