Just last week it was rumoured that actor Guy Pearce had a role in Ridley Scott‘s upcoming sci-fi non-Alien prequel Prometheus. Now it is confirmed, The Playlist managed to wrangle it out of some of the reps for the actor and he is indeed in the film. There is no word yet on the role he is playing but the cast is pretty stacked full of great lead actors with big parts, he’ll make a great addition. Pearce is a very talented actor and has a lot of strong roles under his belt, most recently in The King’s Speech.
Prometheus is currently shooting in London in 3D, heading for a June release date next year. It stars Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba, Sean Harris and Rafe Spall.
