It depends on the context. An express interest is a
- Particular; specific:
interest: The manager has an express interest in getting a large pay raise.
An expressed interest is one that has been stated or explained:-
- a. To set forth in words; state: express an opinion.
so the manager has an expressed interest in whatever he said he was interested in (even if he was only pretending).
