Milla Jovovich, in her role as wife of the director of lead publicist for the Resident Evil movie franchise, just confirmed that Leon Kennedy will make a live-action debut in the next RE film, where he will be played by something called Johann Urb.

You might remember Urb from films such as (adjusts glasses, reads from paper) "Eastwick, 2012, The Hottie and the Nottie, 1408, The Mountain, The Bank Job and Strictly Sexual." That's provided you remember those films.


At least the resemblance is there.
