Sharlto Copley has been busy promoting 'Elysium', in which he plays Kruger, an unhinged assassin that doesn't follow orders. In a recent interview, Sharlto discusses his penchant for playing crazy characters.

When asked about whether he enjoyed playing a character like Kruger in Elysium, Sharlto replied, "Yeah, I did. I mean, interestingly, I don’t think [I enjoyed it] as much as characters like Wikus or Murdock, because it had a darkness to this one, which is more removed from my everyday personality [Laughs] It’s that and Oldboy, which is also far gone from my comfort zone, I suppose."
 
He also opens up about developing the character with director Neill Blomkamp, explaining, "I basically ended up sending him four different versions of South African. I also tried a British and Eastern European version of the character. And one of the four South Africans, I felt, was the one we should do, and Neill felt the same way. And we fine-tuned elements of him a little bit, of the dark, sadistic side he would have - the humour versus the lethalness of him, I suppose."
