The writers’ strike might have brought Season Two of NBC’s Heroes to a premature end, but series star Milo Ventimiglia isn’t just sitting around twiddling his thumbs; in fact, you’re about to see quite a lot of him at a theater near you.
As Ventimiglia tells Entertainment Weekly, he’s working on two films before Christmas — and that’s in addition to Pathology, the long-delayed medical thriller he’ll be starring in early next year. Dig it:
I’m pretty busy. I’m doing two features before Christmas. One is called Game, and that’s with Gerard Butler and Amber Valletta. It’s written and directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the same guys who did Pathology, the movie I have coming out in the spring.
Game finds Ventimiglia playing, in his words, “a very interesting futuristic character that’s not necessarily in control of himself.” He’s also playing the villain in Chaos Theory, an independent feature “about a guy who leads a very organized life, and someone comes into that life and just sets a downward spiral in motion.”
