Mila Kunis Prepares for Max Payneby Matt Richenthal at . Comments
Mila Kunis may currently be best known for her role as Jackie Burkhart on That '70s Show - but that may soon change as the actress who also voices Meg Griffin on Family Guy takes on a number of new film roles.
First up, Kunis will star in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, in which she plays the object of Peter Bretter's (Jason Segel) post-breakup affection, Rachel Jansen.
Kunis is also currently shooting a video game adaptation of Max Payne opposite Mark Wahlberg. She'll play the character of Mona Sax. Just the name sounds hot.
Reelz Channel recently spoke to Kunis about her work on Max Payne:
"I can't really reveal too much," the actress said of the project. "I play a character named Mona Sax who is based on the video game, but doesn't necessarily come in until [the game] Max Payne 2, if I'm not mistaken. Max Payne loses his wife and goes on this spree to find out why she was murdered.It's kind of lapse of three years and he goes on this mission and his child gets murdered, his wife gets murdered and it's this cop who is distraught and dark and cold and all he wants to do is just figure out why and who. My character -- her sister gets murdered by who she assumes is Max Payne.
They bond over the loss of a loved one, not necessarily knowing why or who [the other person is], and they go on this mission together."
Kunis added that she's actually gotten the chance to play the Max Payne game a bit before jumping into the role.
"I am a gamer. I did play Max Payne when it first came out [but] I'm not the best at first-person shooter games like Halo and Max Payne because I have very little hand/eye coordination required for moving up and down and to the side."
That's okay. Her other assets more than make up for it.
