Former O.C. bad boy and current Tom Hardy doppelgänger Logan Marshall-Green posed for “The Sin” issue of BULLETT Magazine, looking all sorts of sexy. The theater vet talked about his love of Shakespeare, and credits his mother for keeping him and his twin brother, Taylor out of jail…most of the time (“I mean, we still went to jail but…”). Just like Trey Atwood…
“I spent a couple of nights in jail,” Marshall-Green said of his younger days in South Carolina. ”But it could have been worse, and we owe a lot of that to my mom, who somehow found a way to instill in us some sense of responsibility and moral fiber.”
Though he’s done well for himself on-screen, Marshall-Green’s heart clearly belongs on the stage. He recently moved to Los Angeles, but splits his time between there and his East Village abode. “Theater is a very religious thing for me,” he explained. ”When you’re performing eight times a week, you’re being asked to carve your heart out, or fall in love, and every night you are challenging yourself to do that. It’s one of the toughest jobs out there.”
Did you know that Marshall-Green initially wanted to be a sportscaster? “I didn’t want to be in the theater, even though I’d done it my whole life. I just wanted to perform live. I wanted to be the next Bob Murphy.” The young buck wanted to broadcast Mets games on the radio. Alas, his destiny led him towards the stage.
“For me, the most important movement of the audience isn’t getting butts in seats, but getting them to leap forward from those seats. There’s beauty to the nonverbal conversation being had between actor and audience,” Marshall-Green explained. ”I can’t remember who told me this, but someone once said something to me to the effect of, ‘You’re in charge.’ It’s not about manipulation or forcing anything, it’s just about letting them know when they’re going to laugh, when they’re going to cry, or when they’re going to stop laughing. Great actors move and the audience follows.”
Prometheus opens tomorrow (June 8th).
