Right we’ve danced the Hempen jig enough over Rockstar’s latest game La Noire but in their very latest trailer for the 1940s themed, sandbox detective game, entitled Investigation & Interrogation, we couldn’t help but notice a few familiar faces.
The technology used to realistically recreate the faces of those actors and actresses used in the game is known as MotionScan, a new system for 3D motion capture, and as you can see from the video above the results are breathtaking. Long gone are the days of trying to figure out the actor who voices your favourite in-game character as you can easily determine who it is from their almost identical CGI doppelgangers.
Michael Gladis who plays Paul Kinsey in the hit series of Mad Men and apparently appeared in that Liam Nesson and Harrison Ford submarine Russkie flick K-19 The Widowmaker.
Greg Grunberg the cop from Heroes.
Brain Krause who played Leo Wyatt in Charmed and also popped up in an episode of Mad Men.
Patrick Fischler who played obnoxious comedian Jimmey Barret in Mad Men, Phil in Lost and Detective Kenny ‘no-gun’ in Southland
We’re going out on a limb with this one but we’re pretty sure that’s Courtney Gains, famous for his role as Hans Klopek in The Burbs and Sgt Eugene McVey in Memphis Belle.
Did you spot any more?
