Interview: Joel Edgerton on The Thing


When Joel Edgerton (seen in last month’s release Warrior) was cast in the prequel to The Thing, his character, Sam, was described as a helicopter pilot. Naturally, instant comparisons were drawn to Kurt Russell’s MacReady in John Carpenter’s 1982 The Thing. But piloting a chopper is about where the similarities end between Sam and MacReady as audiences will find out when The Thing opens October 14.

Edgerton stars in the film with Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Eric Christian Olsen and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and recently caught up with the actor to talk about the prequel. You can read the interview by clicking here!
