Interview: L.A. Noire's Adam Harrington Shoots Straight On Playing Corrupt Cop Roy Earle

A few weeks back, we spoke with actor Patrick Fischler about bringing to life infamous bad man Mickey Cohen in Team Bondi and Rockstar Games' L.A. Noire. So in preparation for the release of the upcoming downloadable vice case “Reefer Madness,” which will be released on July 12, we put the screws to Adam Harrington, whose slick-talking and deeply corrupt Roy Earle no doubt made a few gamers want to punch him in his smug, yet dashing, face. He’s just one of those kinds of characters you just can’t help hating but also can’t help being captivated by, because he just commands such a presence on screen. We chatted with Harrington via email to find out what it was like to work on one of the most technologically groundbreaking games of all time,and the unique challenges and opportunities it presented along the way.

G4: How did you get involved with L.A. Noire? When did you first hear about the project, and what drew you to it?

Adam Harrington:
The first time I heard about the game was when I was invited to a casting session for Roy Earle, and then I was lucky enough to be hired. I was immediately drawn to the genre that L.A. Noire was taking on, and the fact that right from the beginning, it felt like it was going to be a movie that you could play. It felt different than other things I had seen before in video games. It was taking an entire genre and pulling the player into that world. And I thought the character was, from what I saw at the beginning, just so well-written, and was a great classic film noir character.
