Quantum Break's hero was always going to look like Iceman


"If you've been following Alan Wake developer Remedy's Xbox One exclusive Quantum Break, you might have noticed a seeming last-minute casting change at Gamescom 2015, as protagonist Jack Joyce suddenly gained a new and different face. Despite speculation regarding evil twins and merging realities (pretty par for the course when a game is about time travel), the truth is far more mundane: the original Jack was a stand-in."

Yeah I got that impression too from the interview with Sam Lake. Loving the new cast.

I have to say, I actually am more interested with him as the lead. He's not the most "emotional" actor I've seen, but I do like him for these sort of roles. He fills that type of role well and is still young and able to lead such a role for many years without issue or starting to look old.

I thought he did some good work on The Following. Or maybe that was his twin brother.

Plus if anything happened to him like he got tired of the role or he had an accident....he has a twin

You don't get that everyday

Why was the original on the cover art then?

Why the hell as Jack Joyce now got a weird hunchback due to a badly modelled new head?

Lol some things don't add up. Plus, the old Jack seemed to be a more capable actor.

RIP old Jack Joyce, he was my Joyce and now i have a crappy new one :( for some reason, it feels like Eight Days, like it's gone now for good.

I knew it! He is Iceman.

When I first saw Quantum Break, the main character looked like Phil Spencer with a cleft chin.

Yeah I was confused when I saw him in the gamescom preview, but it makes sense. Can't wait to play this game and watch the show, I hope it's a hit.
