Yes, just got the news. Its all over movie related websites by now

... As far as appearances goes the guy resembles me of Peter Weller... skinny, a very defined jaw line... Now i'm curious how good is his acting

Any thoughts from those who know the guy from his previous works ?

Remains to be seen if he accepts though.

For me it feels a bit strange as he is Swedish, although he has both Swedish and American citizenship. I was expecting a somewhat unknown guy and that is what we could get with Joel.

I haven't seen anything he's been in though so can't really comment on acting skill or if he has an odd accent.

Here is an article about the recent news that features a clip of an interview with Joel about The Killing, a show he stars in. It showcases some of his acting chops and I can't detect an accent. http://www.slashfilm.com/the-killings-joel-kinnaman-offered-lead-robocop/

Comment: Is my new life a reward for the one I led?

Posted: Sat Feb 25, 2012 2:00 am Reply with quote

Eh I'm not excited about this choice as I just don't have anything to base his potential off of. I checked out his IMDB and didn't recognise a single film he's been in aside from the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo remake, but I haven't seen that version. I'm pretty sure he's as unknown as you can get, at least in America.

But judging from that little AMC clip, I just fon't know. I'm not saying he's a bad choice at all, in fact he could come out with an amazing performance. But his role and "look" in The Killing doesn't make me think of RoboCop at all.

Maybe we're all too much attached to Peter Weller and having trouble trying to picture someone wearing the suit.

Well, look how it's worked out without Weller. I know I don't want to see another Page Fletcher or Robert Burke. Even Richard Eden, who did an admirable job, pales in comparison to the real deal. Maybe someone could pull off something comparable, but the precedent doesn't bode well for the new guy.

Well his role in The Killing is a street wise undercover cop of 8 years who now works homicide cases. The definition of hardcore. The kind of guy you can tell has smoked meth more than a few times to solidify his criminal reputation.

So it's a bit of a stretch to imagine him as the devoted catholic father who struggles for a lost humanity in the shell of a corporate cyborg.

In "Buckaroo Banzai" Peter Weller plays an adventurer/surgeon/rock musician who take on evil alien invaders from the 8th dimension.

It's a bit of a stretch to imagine him as the devoted catholic father who struggles for a lost humanity in the shell of a corporate cyborg.

Har har very clever J.

It's almost more of a stretch, but I can make the jump from wacky 8th Dimension Ziggy Stardust sci-fi flick to RoboCop, more than Undercover Meth Head to RoboCop. But the logic remains that an actor does have the ability to transcend the roles given to him or her.

Yeah it'll be like Heroin Ray-Bans. It will mask the zonked out meth stare in his eyes (see Velvet Underground).

Btw, ever considering photoshopping the actors without the helmet? Could be interesting if you felt like frittering away more of your time.
