James Franco Also Wonders Why Prometheus Characters Are Such Jerks

James Franco continues to blog for the Huffington Post, and this time, he wants to talk Prometheus (though he doesn't acknowledge the rumors that he was once pursued for Logan Marshall-Green's role). Turns out, the film left Franco asking one of the same questions we've been pondering. "Everyone wants to examine the unanswered questions about origins — why the robot is so evil and how this story links to the later films — but I wonder why every character in this film is such a dick," writes the actor. This is a pretty good part, too: "I don't know much about Scientology except for the abridged version I saw on South Park, but the origin story in Prometheus reminded me of that."
