Get Your First Look At Sharlto Copley In ELYSIUM
The first look the overwhelming majority of us had at Sharlto Copley was when the South African made his feature acting debut as the lead of Neill Blomkamp's District 9. Copley's lack of acting experience - his background is largely as a VFX geek - proved no issue at all as he was a natural in front of the camera and he's gone on to a number of big roles since.
But now Copley and Blomkamp are back together, with Copley playing the villain in Blomkamp's upcoming Elysium. And today the good folks at Empire published the first look at Copley's Kruger character.
Elysium will again blend scifi spectacle with pointed social commentary, the film telling the story of an ex-con (Matt Damon) fighting for equality between the earth bound lower classes and the wealthy elite who live aboard the Elysium space station governed by Jodi Foster. Copley plays Foster's 'attack dog'.
