Ed Harris stars in Snowpiercer and it’s one of those roles that the Oscar nominee really cannot talk about. See, Harris’ character and his role is kind of a spoiler. So, when we caught up with Harris, we began with his first reaction to the idea of the story of Snowpiercer.
As shown in the Snowpiercer trailer, humanity has been all but wiped out by a new Ice Age. Those (about 1,000) who have survived are on a train that is circling the globe with a “miracle” engine that never quits. So, what did Harris first think when he heard the concept?
“I thought it was pretty wild. I didn’t know how they were going to pull it off,” Harris admitted. But after seeing wildly inventive director Joon-ho Bong’s other works, he was sold. “He sure knows how to make a film.”
We also asked Harris, who has starred in dozens and dozens of movies, of all of his filmography, which flicks does he get most recognized for? Could one be the film that gave us these The Rock quotes?
Turns out, the answer depends on where he is! Check out the exclusive video interview above and see what he says. And check out Snowpiercer in theaters June 27.
