In Part Two of our interview with actor Joel Kinnaman, he talks more about his portrayal of Detective Stephen Holder on Season Two of AMC’s THE KILLING (Sundays at 9 PM), plus how his upcoming role as the lead in the remake of ROBOCOP will differ from the original.
AX: Who do you think is a better cop, Holder or his partner Sarah Linden?
KINNAMAN: She has a very strong, intuitive strength and she kind of goes into the mind of the killer, and Holder comes from the street and that’s how he reasons and he can tell a liar when he sees one. So I think they compliment each other really well.
AX: Do you and Mireille Enos, who plays Linden, have conversations about how you’re going to do scenes together, or do you just hit the set and see how you work with each other as you do the work?
KINNAMAN: We’re really good friends and so if we’re in a scene that we have questions about, then we’ll talk about it, but our chemistry is so good that we always find a way to work it out. Usually, we actually work it out while we’re doing it. It’s very easy. We both find it very easy to play off each other, so it’s a very positive work relationship.
