Logan Marshall-Green Boards Prometheus
He'll be Noomi Rapace's love interest

As the construction crews keep working on building sets for Ridley Scott’s epic sci-fi not-a-direct-prequel-to-Alien-but-almost-certainly-linked-to-that-world Prometheus, the director is busy adding more actors to the cast, this time in the shape of Logan Marshall-Green.

The actor, who has been seen in the TV likes of 24, The OC, Dark Blue as well as movies including The Great Raid, Across the Universe and Devil, has been hired to play Holloway a crewman aboard the ship who will catch the eye of scientist Elizabeth Shaw, played by Noomi Rapace.

So that’s one more confirmed bit of casting to add to a list that already includes Rapace, Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba, Sean Harris and Kate Dickie. Not bad company to be in by any stretch of the imagination, even if it did mean him reading the script with a security guard standing by.

Scott is still keeping the plot details a closely guarded secret, though he most recently admitted that it’s “the story of creation, the gods, and the man who stood against them." Whatever it turns out to be, Jonathan Spaihts wrote the early drafts of the script with Lost’s Damon Lindelof drafted in to revise it under Scott’s orders.
