If you’ve been reading Collider for any amount of time, you know how we feel about Milo Ventimiglia. Since first interviewing him about a year and a half ago, Milo has been a great supporter of the site and has made himself available whenever we’ve had a question. Also, he’s one of the nicest actors in the business.
Anyway, at this year’s Comic-Con, the cast of Neveldine/Taylor’s “Gamer” was out promoting and Jonah was able to sit down with Milo as I couldn’t make the interview. But don’t worry, Jonah stepped up to the plate and asked some great questions. So if you’d like to see Milo talk about his work in “Gamer”, “Heroes”, and video games, take a look after the jump:
Finally, here’s a link to some clips from “Gamer”and the synopsis:
GAMER is a high-concept action thriller set in the near future, a time when mind-control technology has taken society by storm. Humans control other humans in a mass-scale, multiplayer online game. Reclusive billionaire Ken Castle (Michael C. Hall) has created the controversial form of entertainment, “Slayers,” a hugely popular game that allows millions to act out their innermost desires and fantasies – online – in front of a global audience. Gaming has evolved into a terrifying new dimension…mind control… manipulation… people playing people!
At the center is Kable (300’s Gerard Butler), the superstar and cult hero of “Slayers,” the savage, ultraviolent first person shooter game. Kable is controlled by Simon, a young gamer with rock star status who continues to defy all odds by guiding Kable to victory each week. Taken from his family, imprisoned and forced to fight against his will, the modern day gladiator must survive long enough to escape the game to free his family, regain his identity and to save mankind from Castle’s ruthless technology.
