Danny McBride, known for his outstanding comedic chops and sharp improvisational skills, recently spoke with Hitfix and of course, the topic of the upcoming Alien: Covenant came up.
McBride is featured in the film, but according to the funny man, there won’t be any comedic relief in the picture, so cast aside any hopes of golden one-liners or light-hearted relief from McBride. Apparently, his character is a straight shooter.
Let’s just hope he survives to appear in the next Alien flick, perhaps with a joke or two to dole out. Although, director Ridley Scott doesn’t seem to be the kind of filmmaker to worry about funnies in his masterpiece epic.
Check out what McBride had to say about starring in the Alien: Covenant, and dig on his take of the movie’s tone. You might like what you hear!
