Umbrella stockholder Albert Wesker will have more than classy shades and sadistic banter to his credit when he returns in Resident Evil 5
, complete with moves from a General Hospital
heartthrob. IGN reports that the former S.T.A.R.S. captain will be played by stunt man and former daytime TV actor Ken Lally
, who will lend an extra motion-captured step to Wesker's swagger.
The actor, whose on-camera resume also includes playing "The German" in two episodes of Heroes
as well as an unnamed security officer on Enterprise
, got his combat chops early on as the son of an N.S.A. operative, leaving us hoping that this role will be a case of art imitating life. Well, without that whole virus thing.
