21.Dec.2009 A Tale of Two Shepherds
Certainly and absolutely, I’m the first person in the entirety of the interwebs to make this realization/comparison (sarcasm!), but “Mass Effect” hero John Shepherd looks a helluva lot like “LOST’s” Jack Shepherd!
I caught a few of these screen shots from the upcoming “Mass Effect 2” on Kotaku last week and it hit me, “John Shepherd. Jack Shepherd! Matthew Fox should be in a ‘Mass Effect’ movie!” This was, of course, pure brilliance.
I’ll keep this argument concise, but here’s how I see it…
1. “Mass Effect” is a rich science fiction game with a great story and great action. It would make an awesome movie, as it’s cut scenes and previews prove.
2. Matthew Fox is pretty badass, is great in “LOST” and fought ninjas in “Speed Racer,” so I would love to see him in more action movies. (This is not sarcasm. I really enjoyed “Speed Racer” and Matthew Fox fighting ninjas in that movie was roughly 20 percent of the reason why. For the record, John Goodman fighting ninjas formed another 20 percent of my enjoyment factor.)
For more proof that Matthew Fox would be great in an action movie, observe this photo!
3. Matthew Fox/Jack Shepherd looks a lot like John Shepherd from “Mass Effect.” (A fact I didn’t notice till now, as I played “Mass Effect” with a created character…who looked dumb, or kinda like me.)
4. In conclusion, due to this super obvious and clear evidence, Matthew Fox should play John Shepherd in a “Mass Effect” movie. And if you weren’t convinced so far, I am sure this creepy mash-up mugshot will do the trick…
I rest my case.
Hollywood, you can send me a check as soon as you read this. You’re welcome.
