Guy Pearce has in fact joined the cast of Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus. Though we don’t know much about the top-secret Alien prequel, let’s assume it involves running around on a spaceship and probably playing a cocky guy who gets eaten. If that is the case, that’s a perfect role for Guy Pearce. I can imagine him running around on a spaceship right now. Ducking behind corners. Sometimes doing science stuff. It could be his Guy Pearciest role yet.
He’ll be joining Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Rafe Spall, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, and Logan Marshall-Green. No idea why Cillian Murphy isn’t also a part of this project. Maybe his voice-mailbox was full when they called. (The Playlist)
