In the action thriller I Am Number Four, directed by D.J. Caruso and currently in theaters, actor Kevin Durand plays the imposing commander of the Mogadorian army that is in pursuit of the nine Lorien teenagers who have escaped their own planet with their guardians and come to Earth. It is his job to track them down and eradicate them, one by one, wherever they are hiding.
During a recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, Kevin Durand talked about getting offered this unusual role, developing the character into something more multi-dimensional and playful, learning the complicated Mogadorian language, and trying to keep his make-up from melting off during a Florida summer. He also talked about his role opposite Hugh Jackman in the upcoming action drama Real Steel, opening in November. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
