    Joel Kinnaman Reveals: Peeing in Robocop Suit Wasn't Easy

    Most superheroes would probably agree it's hard for them to, well, pee.

    Those suits make it pretty hard to do your business.

    Just ask Joel Kinnaman, who stars in the new Robocop reboot (in theaters now) as the iconic cyborg crime fighter.

    "There was a procedure," he told me at the movie's premiere in Hollywood. "It took awhile, but you get through it. They didn't have to take me [to the bathroom] but they had to remove certain parts, the essentials."

    But it was all worth it.

    "It was great wearing the suit in that it made me feel badass," Kinnaman said. "But it also made me feel some of the vulnerability that the character was going through and that was an interesting contrast of emotion, being amputated from the throat down but at the same time having this almost invincible incredible new body. The suit helped me understand some of those thoughts."

    Kinnaman remembers seeing the original Robocop for the first time. "Sometime when I as nine or 10 years old," he said. "I've seen it like 20 or 25 times. I know it by heart. I loved it and still love it."

    His costar Gary Oldman also recalled his first time.

    "I remember it being sort of sci-fi horror," said Oldman, who plays Robocop's scientist creator Dr. Dennett Norton.. "There were a lot of heads rolling around with a lot of blood and guts and all that kind of stuff. I thought it was cool."

    Directed by Paul Verhoeven, the original Robocop was released in 1987 and starred Peter Weller in the title role.
