Kavanagh's credentials read like the type of guy Paramount would want if it plans to finally kick off that gaming initiative mentioned almost a year ago. Most recently, he was an executive at Kuju, but before that he was VP of product development at Eidos, allegedly giving titles like Hitman, Deus Ex and Timesplitters the green light. After that, he had a stint running Crystal Dynamics and Ion Storm. His earliest work was as a programmer for Atari.
Now we wait to see if Paramount actually commits to the game space like Warner Bros., or if Kavanagh works on his version of the "Barney Stinson Video Resume" (found after the break) while keeping the executive chair warm for the next guy.
