Rami Malek and Christian Slater on “Mr. Robot” 2.0
Last year’s Golden Globe winner for Best TV Drama, Mr. Robot was rightly hailed as one of the most original new series on television. Christian Slater took home his own Best Supporting Actor Globe for his role as the mysterious and unpredictable leader of a shadowy anarchist hacker collective, while Rami Malek was nominated for his groundbreaking role as Elliot Alderson, the coder who turns hacktivist, when he’s recruited by Mr. Robot’s (Slater) “F Society”. It all makes for a pretty high bar, as creator Sam Esmail gets ready to release the anticipated second season on USA Network. Listen to Malek and Slater as they tell us why the follow-up will more than live up to expectations – even as it eerily mirrors reality.
