Joel Kinnaman, best known for his acclaimed run on the TV series The Killing, had the daunting task of wearing a technology driven suit for the lead role in RoboCop (he plays the human/half robot Alex Murphy in the film).
“The suit became one of the first seeds that led my imagination into the vulnerability of what Alex Murphy felt when he became RoboCop,” said Kinnaman. “It was an interesting contrast because he’s got this body that is so powerful but he feels very uncomfortable. He’s amputated from the throat down and he doesn’t know who he is anymore. So my little level of discomfort sort of led me to think of what Alex would have felt times a thousand. So I was surprised to think that this suit that should make me feel so powerful actually made me feel so vulnerable.”
