Boyd Holbrook of 'Logan' dishes on his villainous character

We all know who Wolverine is and if you never, nicely you happen to be most likely not going to see "Logan."

But if you are a fan of this hugely-anticipated final movie featuring Hugh Jackman as his iconic, gruff superhero, then you have a lot of concerns about Boyd Holbrook's character Pierce and his Reavers.

Certain, they appear very menacing, but what do they want? Exactly where do they come from? And what's up with Pierce's mechanical arm?

Holbrook was kind enough to cease by "Popcorn with Peter Travers" and we have ALL the answers you happen to be looking for. Here's what the actor had to say:

Never let his name Donald Pierce fool you

Travers didn't pull any punches soon after seeing "Logan," calling Holbrook's character a "rat bast---."

"Almost everything begins with the script," he told Travers, explaining that his character's accent adds to his menacing demeanor. "It was written as Southern, so I drew off [my experiences, getting from Kentucky]."

What makes the accent so creepy is "there's a hospitality to it," which throws you off, Holbrook said.

Travers even mentioned the initially conversation amongst Pierce and Wolverine comes off like he's a fan of the former X-Males hero.

He's no pushover

Holbrook added that a couple of cosmetic additions, such as his tattoos, "inform a backstory" about his villainous function.

"You can inform he's military," Holbrook explained. "There's wounds ... his mannerisms."

In you've noticed his mechanical arm, Holbrook said his character "chopped [it] off" to make the "upgrade."

The Reavers

This ex-military group and its leader, Pierce, is a "brilliant engineer with sort of neurotical robotics" who can repair these who have been injured in battle, hence the upgraded limbs.

"You got a guy who feels a small bit inadequate," he said. "He’s not as certified as the mutants are. He's trying to strengthen himself."

X-23

A young girl Laura is fundamentally a young, female version of Logan, who he at some point requires beneath his wing, according to trailers and clips.

Holbrook made it appear like the Reavers had a hand in building her. "That's his item," Holbrook mentioned.

"That is a security threat against society," he stated.

The R rating

Holbrook stated the rating tends to make this film the sort of Wolverine film everybody has been waiting for.

"It’s public knowledge that Hugh’s taken a spend cut to make this film," he said of the rating. "I think in a way it is type of going to quench the thirst of the audience, the fan base, simply because you generally want to see what this guy is really capable of."
