‘The Killing’ star Joel Kinnaman describes his ‘RoboCop’ suit as ‘uncomfortable’

The reboot of the 80’s hit RoboCop lands in 2014 and fans are always eager to hear more about the suit and what it’s like to wear the suit.

“It was very uncomfortable,” the Swedish-American star says of RoboCop’s new body armor, designed by Oscar-nominated costume designer April Ferry.

“I’m not wearing much under the suit… you feel naked. Also, when the cameras weren’t rolling, I [felt] awkward and embarrassed. It was hard to move my head and everything was making my back ache. I used that awkwardness because that’s what Murphy would’ve felt, times a thousand.”

Set in 2028, RoboCop follows copper Alex Murphy (Kinnaman), who’s injured doing his job and transformed into a bionic police officer.
