Joel Kinnaman burst onto the big screen this year in a big way as Colonel Rick Flag in Suicide Squad, and did a terrific job as the by-the-book Spec Ops soldier who was forced to babysit a batch of deranged psychos.
Kinnaman is now training vigorously for his new Netflix series Altered Carbon, in which he plays Takeshi Kovacs, a mercenary who undertakes a dangerous mission which could have far-reaching consequences for humanity.
The actor recently shared a video of his training to his Instagram accountant, which showed him learning knife combat techniques with the film’s stunt crew.
Altered Carbon is an adaptation of the novels by author Richard K. Morgan and will run for 10 episodes. Screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island, Terminator: Genisys) was hired to adapt with Game of Thrones veteran Miguel Sapochnik directing the first episode.
