Logan Marshall-Green

Another name to add to the crew list for Ridley Scott's new sci-fi Prometheus. And I don't mean behind-the-scenes crew, I mean on the spaceship in the movie. Actor Logan Marshall-Green, mostly known for "24", "The O.C.", "Traveler" and "Dark Blue" on TV, though he also appeared in Devil and Brooklyn's Finest, has been cast in another lead role in Prometheus, according to Deadline. Marshall-Green will play the role of Holloway, a crewman on the spaceship and the love interest for the character that Noomi Rapace will play. He'll join actors Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris and Kate Dickie in the movie.

Prometheus, the first sci-fi movie from Ridley Scott since Blade Runner in 1982, is set to start shooting soon in London. "There's action in it," Fassbender said in a previous post about the project, "but the intelligence is what struck me when I read it. It's more sort of like the [original Alien films]. There are things happening and building, and the intelligence of the first two-thirds of the film gets you ready for the action." Fox has already scheduled Prometheus for release on June 8th, 2012 next summer, so we've got a while to go, but it sounds better every day, from casting to the concept. I'm quite excited! We'll be sure to keep you updated.

    When I watched Brooklyn's Finest, he reminded me of Tom Hardy...similarities lie in the face. He's a decent actor, and I'm sure under Scott he'll shine. Hey Alex what's going on with Gravity? Is Bullock still on board? I know I'm the only one who thinks Bullock will do a good job...but I'm wondering if its been put on the back burner...any info? P.S. When is the next Weekly Assignment?

    Dammit Xerxess...beat me to it.
    • Yea, I've asked him to relax a bit, give others a chance... But what were you going to say anyway? You can still write a comment about this news! I'm happy such a great cast is coming together, though Xerxexx reminds me - I'd much rather see Tom Hardy in this!

      Is it a contest? Why didn't you voice your opinion? No procuring the first spot doesn't mean people won't read your comment.

    I liked him in Dark Blue. Anyone else think he looks a lot like Tom Hardy? Maybe it's the shaved head.

      Nah, nothing like it to me... But Logan Marshall-Green was the best thing about Dark Blue. And Devil.

    when Logan bitch slapped this guy @an art gallery in Dark Blue, and asked him if he deserved! I was never so happy to have a DVR then at that moment. I must have played that back a thousand times laughing hysterically each time. They should have never cancelled Dark Blue!! And I totally agree he is a great actor
  • what episode was thatt when Dean smacked the dude, and yeah i agree with what you guys said, logan def deserves to be one of the biggest new actors, shit i'm a guy n if i could look like anyone in this world and have the personality of someone it's dean bendis in dark blue hahaha...Crazyyy, i hope he's got a leading role in Prometheus, i'm pissed he didn't get the Jason Bourne role and jeremy renner got it instead, although renner is a great actor i just would of loved to see logan play bourne my ultimate favorite character, plus he'd play the perfect covert agent gone rouge in my opinion....does anyone know if his character Holloway will be the main role for the males?? I mean Michael Fassbender is good an' all, but i don't even think he can compare to Logan, honestly logan should be shining the way fassbender is right now...
