Logan Marshall-Green’s character in “Lou” is the mysterious Philip, whose presence in the trailer alone suggests he is the story’s bad guy. Considering his experience in the horror genre, that is not too far a stretch for this actor. Clearly a fan of the thriller, mystery, and horror genres, Marshall-Green has starred in several creepy films over the past two decades of his acting career.
Fans of M. Night Shyamalan might recognize him from the 2010 film, “Devil,” (Shyamalan is the story creator) where he played the “mechanic,” one of five occupants stuck in an elevator and who may or may not be the devil himself. Though of course, audiences might find him more familiar with the role of Travis Scott in ABC’s mystery-thriller series, “Big Sky.” He also earned some chills in 2015’s “The Invitation” and 2018’s “Upgrade.”
However, his most notable role might just be as Charlie Holloway in Ridley Scott’s “Alien” origin-story prequel, “Prometheus.” The Hollywood horror blockbuster featured an amazing cast, and Marshall-Green starred alongside Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, and Charlize Theron (just to name a few). Fans should remember Charlie Holloway as Elizabeth Shaw’s (Noomi Rapace) colleague and lover. No spoilers here, but in true Ridley Scott fashion, Holloway makes a memorable exit in the film.
