Stephen Lang interview Khalar Zym CONAN slice

At last week’s Saturn Awards, I was able to interview Stephen Lang backstage after he won Best Supporting Actor for playing Colonel Miles Quaritch in James Cameron’s Avatar.  While it was great to talk to him about what the last year has been like, I’ll admit I also wanted to know about the project he literally just wrapped shooting in Bulgaria: Conan.  If you didn’t know, director Marcus Nispel has been hard at work on the remake of Conan starring Jason Momoa as the title character and Lang plays another villain by the name of Khalar Singh.  Here’s a lot more info on his character.

Anyway, during the interview Lang talks about what making Conan was like, the stunts, the make-up, his character, what it was like to fight Jason Momoa, and he says the movie starts with an action sequence and goes for two hours with a break “here and there.”  Hit the jump to watch what he had to say:

    Frosty you should have a section pushing for Lang to play Cable in a standalone X-Men Origins movie. Let me know what you think. :)

    Lang has had some recent solid strides, and then there's a excerpt reading from “Muse of Fire” that I find rather haunting in a good way.

    Wow! Stephen Lang seems really cool, and possesses a degree of humility, which is always refreshing in an actor (especially one having appeared in one of the biggest movies ever made). Tbs, I have to mention how cool Disqus is. I mean, this is the first time that I have navigated here, and yet because they are using Disqus I can just comment with no fuss and absolutely no registration nonsense.

    Very cool.

    Now back on track: Jason Momoa doesn't fit Conan as movie watchers remember him, though–and admittedly I have not read the novels–quite a few posters say that he actually resembles the character more than Arnold does.
