Guy Pearce Confirms His Role In ‘Prometheus’

So much mystery surrounding this “Prometheus” flick… how much “Alien” DNA will it really have? Which characters will live and which will die? Who will make an awesome cameo? So many questions and so many months to mull them over while we wait for the film’s release on June 8.

In addition to the newly-released still of star Noomi Rapace all space-suited up and looking on in wonder, we had a little chat with actor Guy Pearce at the Golden Globes during which he confirmed that he is indeed in the film, if only for a hot second or two.

When asked about his experience on set, Pearce said it was everything we’d assume it would be, amazing and fantastic.

“I’m only [in the film] for a minute, but it was a real honor to work with Ridley [Scott], to see what was going on,” he said. “I think Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace and Charlize Theron and everybody will do a really spectacular job.”

Before Pearce was whisked away from us to get settled into his seat, we asked him about the feel of the film, whether it has the old school “Alien” sheen from the late 70s or now.

“A little bit,” he admitted. “A little bit.”

Pearce, who is a very busy man with almost too many projects on his plate, also revealed that he will likely not be in his “Hurt Locker” director Katherine Bigelow’s film about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden.
