“The one who knows your secret is the monster. When I ring the bell again the monster will turn around and start walking. With each step, he will age by one year. When he reaches 70, the monster will die. There’s no need to worry. It will be a very peaceful death. Now, good luck to you.”

Oldboy (2003) dir. Park Chan-wook

Interview Magazine: Rami Malek
As the breakout star of the much-talked-about series Mr. Robot, Rami Malek is giving us one of the best performances on tv and just a glimpse of the great talent he can become.

Malek, 35, has been acting professionally for over a decade. He established himself as an edgy character actor in acclaimed indies like Short Term 12 (2013) and Ain’t Them Bodies Saints (2013), and has worked with the heavy-hitting directors Paul Thomas Anderson (The Master, 2012) and Spike Lee (Oldboy, 2013; Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, 2015), but as he tells his friend and Mr. Robot superfan Robert Downey Jr., playing Alderson has opened up a whole new world of possibilities, including his first leading film role, in Sarah Adina Smith’s mystery Buster’s Mal Heart, which he recently completed filming. Downey Jr. caught up with Malek by phone in early June, a few weeks after he visited the Mr. Robot set in New York

An interview with Rami Malek by Robert Downey Jr., and an advertisement with Idris Elba on the side of the article?  I’m REALLY surprised that my ovaries didn’t spontaneously combust when I read this.  

I’m also surprised that the intro didn’t mention The Pacific.  Malek’s performance of Snafu is what got him his role in Mr. Robot.
