Actor and Film Vet Sharlto Copley Circles Back to Roots With Dell and Adobe

Popular South African actor Sharlto Copley, best known as Wikus van de Merwe in the critically acclaimed hit District 9, has had an unusual career arc. As a late-blooming actor he’s played otherworldly everymen (Neill Blomkamp’s District 9 and Chappie), a villain (Elysium), a howling mad special ops mercenary (The A-Team) and a superhero-turned-LAPD detective in the first original series from Sony PlayStation (Powers). He was hardly waiting tables before that.

An early adopter in every sense of the word, Copley’s been experimenting with new technology since he first acted in and cobbled together his own short comic skits and action sequences using two Betamax VCRs as a kid.
