With Leigh Whannell's The Invisible Man now out on 4K and Blu-ray, I had the chance to interview Aldis Hodge over Zoom as part of a virtual press junket. Not only did we discuss the important role his character, James Lanier, plays in The Invisible Man opposite Elisabeth Moss' Cecilia Kass, but we also discussed the physicality and innovative approach to his memorable fight scene, as well as his upcoming roles and his love of horror movies:
