Mad Men’s Aaron Staton Goes Virtual for the New Game from Rockstar – LA Noire

On the set of Mad Men playing account executive Ken Cosgrove, Aaron Staton deals with multiple cameras but probably not 32 at one time. A new venture from Rockstar Games called LA Noire is set to turn the video game world on its collective head with one of the most detailed and most researched games of all time.

The reason for the 32 cameras? He’s starring as a rookie detective for the LAPD in 1947, and every facial expression and mannerism will be caught and transformed to place him in the incredibly accurate world of Los Angeles on the brink of the Golden Age. The actors who are playing the many different characters in this game must actually act, because the smallest move of an eyebrow or a smirk will be used to determine by you the player if a suspect is lying or telling the truth in the interrogation room. The same goes for witnesses on the street, possible corrupt detectives, and the victims themselves.

Take a drive through the streets of Los Angeles in this wonderfully gritty time period. Seven years in the making, LA Noire hits the stores on May 17th, and don’t be surprised if it’s the coolest game you’ve ever played.
