Adding to the already fantastic cast of the Robocop reboot, which includes Samuel L. Jackson, Hugh Laurie and Gary Oldman, Deadline reports that Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen) has been cast as Maddock, “the guy who dispenses the military training to Robocop.”
The site also goes on to say that the movie isn’t done casting yet, as actor Jay Baruchel is circling an unspecified main role. I’m quite puzzled by this role – why would Alex Murphy need military training when he’s already a qualified police officer, AND loaded with steel armour with guns and what not? I’ll have to wait for more details first, but for now it seems a little odd. What do you think of this new addition? Sound off below!
