One of Ridley Scott’s more curious casting choices for Alien: Covenant is Danny McBride, a writer/actor more usually associated with broad comedies like Eastbound & Down, This Is The End and Tropic Thunder. Now he’s been talking to Rolling Stone (via CBM) about his role in the film.
“Most of the stuff is practical effects. When you’re running from an alien it’s really a dude in an alien suit coming after you! The sets are incredible and you’re in them: we go through some inclement weather at one point on the spaceship and this whole gigantic set is on a gimbal, shaking up and down. You don’t have to use your imagination.”
