Gary Oldman to star in “RoboCop” as new character

Gary Oldman in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Posted by on

Consider this another reason to be excited for the upcoming remake of “RoboCop”: Gary Oldman has joined the movie in a role unique to this new film.

The Hollywood Reporter has the news, saying that Oldman will play Norton, the scientist who creates RoboCop. Apparently he is going to help emote some of the morality present in the story, as THR says he “finds himself torn between the ideals of the machine trying to rediscover its humanity and the callous needs of a corporation.”

As fans of the original film know, most of that dilemma was presented through the actors of the titular android and those around him. While Oldman’s addition to any movie is a good thing, we’re worried in this case that it will take away from some of the subtlety of “RoboCop.”

Directed by Jose Padilha, “RoboCop” is looking to start shooting in September. It will tentatively be released in 2013. “The Killing” star Joel Kinnaman will take the titular role that Peter Weller made famous in the 1987 classic.

With Oldman cast in a new role, it’s unclear whether some of the other characters will be altered as well. Who knows, maybe Padilha will do a total overhaul of the story and make it stand on its own… somehow. We’ll wait until we get an official synopsis to make a decision one way or another on this remake.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
