Kinnaman told Collider that he is honoured to be working with the veteran actor, and revealed some of his thoughts on the recent Academy Awards.
"I still think it made everybody that voted for the Oscars look bad that they didn't vote for Gary Oldman, because what he did is so difficult in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," he said.
"I mean, I loved The Artist. I thought it was fantastic. I saw it early before the whole hype of it and I thought that French actor [Jean Dujardin] did a great job, but he's more like that guy. I've seen him in interviews and he is a bit animated like that character. But Gary Oldman disappears into his character. It's so subtle."
RoboCop is scheduled to start filming this September. It is slated for a 2013 release.
