Logan Marshall-Green has come aboard Ridley Scott's mind-bending sci-fi thriller Prometheus. He will be joining Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, and Kate Dickie for what is being described as an Alien spin-off.

Logan Marshall-Green will play Holloway, a crew member of the space ship searching for extraterrestrial life, and romantic liaison for the ship's captain, played by Noomi Rapace. The role was reportedly a hot commodity in Hollywood amongst young male actors.
