The voice actor for the lead character in L.A. Noire is "Mad Men's" Aaron Staton, while Staton says he enjoys games, particularly Grand Theft Auto IV, he usually skips over the cutscenes.
Staton, who portrays Ken Cosgrove on the AMC series, tells Game Informer in its latest edition that he's played all of the Grand Theft Auto games, with Vice City his favorite. However:
As far as open-world games, or anything with a story, in the past, I've usually skipped the cutscenes to go into the gameplay. Which is a funny thing, but I'm just being honest.
Staton adds that L.A. Noire will be different of course, and will either blend cutscenes and gameplay more artfully or, I dunno, make one dependent upon the other. Either way, he says, you should totally not skip through his dialogue. "[It's] about trying to enhance the experience and bring those two together into a singular experience, rather than two separate things, where you're playing, then you put the controller down and watch," Staton said.
