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:
