Hugh Laurie is NOT Villain in "RoboCop" Remake, Clive Owen May BeSubmit Comment
It was recently reported that "House" star Hugh Laurie was in negotiations to play the villainous CEO of Omni Corp in the upcoming "RoboCop" remake. His character creates RoboCop the companies own gain.

Now comes word that Laurie will not appear in the film and MGM is talking to a small group of actors to replace him. One of those actors is Clive Owen.

"RoboCop" is directed by Jose Padilha (Elite Squad) and stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, and Abie Cornish. It's set to begin shooting this summer for an August 9th, 2013 release.

Why don't just recast Kurtwood smith. He's a bad ass villain in original Robocop.

Jason Isaacs or Xander Berkeley. Berkeley looks like Laurie and can also pull up sarcastic lines. He also looks badass in an expensive suit.

He did right to say no to this garbage. I'd like to see him more in a crazy comedic role. He was awesome in blackadder

Commmon, u kidding ?

Owen's got the acting chops for playing villain , Laurie , on the other hand is still cashing in on his House. Didn't care much for him, in Street kings tho that film sucked anyways.

I think Owen deserves a shot, he should be in more films , top actor. He stole the show in Inside Man and his Children of Men is a classic.

"His character creates RoboCop the companies own gain."

The idiot says what?

"his Children of Men is a classic"

Classic what? Over-rated leftwing bullsh*t, maybe, but beyond that, I can't even begin to fathom why CoM is liked, much less celebrated.

As for House, sure, Laurie's character has a certain appeal and charm, but people, just as in the case of Breaking Bad, assume that because they like some actor in some specific role, the actor would thus be great performing any role, from starring in large budget sci-fi films to washing cars.

Such an assumption isn't even remotely true.

Had to hear the same sh*t about Jon Hamm until people got tired of sucking his d*ck and moved to the next 'hot thing'.
