As ludicrous as it might sound, UBG defends Mark Wahlberg's recent comments about his experience with Max Payne. Asking the question, can Wahlberg really pull off the swagger of Payne without touching a controller?
I said this to begin with. If, that's if, the movie turns out sub standard then screen writer/Director are to blame, not Mark being unwilling to play the game. He's simply a tool, his actions written, his script written, few actors have the credentials to actually effect the outcome or direction of a movie, Mark Wahlburg is not one of these. His research will be adequate, but there are plenty of other ways to do that than just play the game. I've played both games, should I play the part? No, I maybe a gamer but I'm no actor, Mark is an actor and obviously not a gamer. But he's playing the role, not the game.
I agree with you completely, they should be able to mould him into the role. he's an actor, he gets told the role and acts as best he can. The ones who need to make sure they've gone through the game is definitely the screen writers/directors. I hope they don't take into account the second one much though, the first was incredible and the second was just stupid ( imo ) at points.
I agree. Mark is a tool.
