In "Prometheus," Logan Marshall-Green plays Charlie Holloway, an extreme archeologist who, along with fellow scientist Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace), leads a crew across space to discover the key to mankind's creation. That key may turn out to be a slithery, bloodthirsty monster or two.

Raised in the theater, Marshall-Green nabbed a Drama Desk Award for his role in Neil Labute's play "The Distance From Here" in 2004. After several small roles in films like "The Great Raid" and "Across the Universe," not to mention a nine-episode arc on TV's "The O.C.," he gained attention as one of the leads in the horror film "Devil." With "Prometheus" he's now found himself in one of the biggest blockbusters of the summer.

We talked to this up-and-comer about his fidelity to the "Alien" franchise, playing Tennessee Williams in an upcoming biopic, and the truth about what he did with that first Hollywood paycheck. »
