A smiling Sam Worthington ambles into a Beverly Hills hotel suite looking a little doughy for an Avatar action star. But he’s fine with the assessment.

“I don’t really like going to the gym,” the Australian actor admits. “Now I try to put that into my characters.”

Certainly, the 35-year-old has more choices after starring in James Cameron’s sci-fi blockbuster, Avatar, and the gods-and-monsters hit, Clash of the Titans. (The sequel, Wrath of the Titans, is set to open March 30.)

He hasn’t received an official start date for the next two Avatar pictures, so he’s forging ahead with his own career moves. And that brings us to Worthington’s lead role in Man on a Ledge, which opens Jan. 27.

The film, directed by Asger Leth, is a combination of heist picture, crime thriller and procedural. Worthington’s Nick Cassidy is an escaped convict and former New York police officer, who is hanging out on the 21st-floor ledge of Manhattan’s famous Roosevelt Hotel.

Threatening to jump, Cassidy has an ulterior motive, as he negotiates with an officer (Elizabeth Banks) at the scene. While she tries to talk him in, he’s trying to expose the corrupt cops who framed him for a diamond heist that sent him to prison.

Total Film was on-set of Wrath Of The Titans, and we caught up with Perseus himself, Sam Worthington, to find out more about the swords and sandals and whopping great monsters epic.

Given the lukewarm response to Clash Of The Titans, audiences may need some convincing if they’re to go on another ride with Perseus.

But Wrath is set 10 years on, and Worthington’s convinced that the team have the story elements cracked this time around.

“It’s about a dysfunctional family,” he explains. “You’ve got a guy – a son – that doesn’t like his Dad. His real Dad. And his real Dad is having problems with his brothers. The son has his own son now, his own family and his own responsibility, and it’s about keeping the family together.

“That’s basically how we looked at it. Then you thrown in a shit-load of monsters and special effects and you should have a good movie.”

Worthington was also keen to emphasise the physical nature of Perseus’ struggle: “[Me and director Jonathan Liebesman] are both fans of movies where the hero is not only reluctant but can get beat up a lot more,” says the Avatar star.

“If you look at things like Die Hard and Lethal Weapon, the main hero got his arse handed to him. And we went, ‘Even though Perseus is half-god, he’s also half-human, and if you keep knocking the hero down he struggles a lot more’. In the first one Perseus is a bit of a superhuman and he doesn’t seem to get hurt. In this one, he gets hurt all the time. That was something we strove for.”

Wrath Of The Titans
opens on 30 March 2012.
