Actor Sharlto Copley stars in the movie Elysium, which features a very impressive cast, including the highly talented Jodie Foster, with Matt Damon in the lead role. Sharlto has spoken about Elysium, admitting that he was very impressed with what Jodie and Matt brought to the table.
Copley told Flicks and Bits, "Jodie is very easy to work with, you know? She’s just amazingly professional and it’s the same with Matt. They’re just so good at their jobs. I think one of the things I took away from both of them, which is possible why they’ve had such long careers, is that they’re just very easy to work with. They’re very down to earth and very grounded people. I can see that people would want to work with them, without even considering how amazing they are as actors (laughs)."
He added "Matt’s awesome. Honestly, actors always talk about this, but if I could choose people to add to my family, Matt would be on my list because it was an incredible experience working with him. He’s a very smart guy, and what I really enjoyed with him was a lot of intellectual conversations about film – and he loves film and he loves acting. We had so many fascinating conversations about so many different topics. We had a lot of fun."
As well as starring Sharlto Copley, Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, the Elysium cast also includes Alice Braga, Diego Luna and William Fichtner. Neil Blomkamp wrote and directed Elysium, which is out now in the US and will hit the UK on August 21. Take a look at the Elysium trailer, below.
