Quote: "They were doing these auditions for Thor in the Scandinavian countries because originally they wanted somebody Nordic, so I just put myself on tape for that. I did it at home, really poorly lit, with my friend's cellphone camera, and sent it in. I didn't really think about it." RoboCop star Joel Kinnaman on almost landing the role of Thor in the Marvel movies.
Fact: Gary Oldman's business partner and publicist Douglas Urbanski has landed another role in one of the actor's films - he plays Mayor Durant in the new RoboCop remake. Urbanski's connection to Oldman earned him a BAFTA in 1998 as a producer of the actor's directorial debut Nil By Mouth, and he has since appeared in The Contender alongside his pal. He also produced Oldman's Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
Quote: "I got no empathy from Michael at all... He'd be like, 'You young guys, you got it easy. They had to glue my suit onto my face and my back still hurts... They had to pry it in there and they had a wooden stick in there'. He just went on and on. I was like, 'Michael, this was like 30, 40 years ago. You've gotta let this go'." RoboCop star Joel Kinnaman's co-star Michael Keaton, a former movie Batman, had no costume tips for the new action hero.
