Chris O'Donnell lands role in 'Max Payne'

Posted on

It seems there are advantages to playing Meredith’s spurned lover on Grey’s Anatomy. Chris O’Donnell, who hasn’t headlined a major film since 2000’s Vertical Limit, just landed a role opposite Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis in Max Payne, Twentieth Century Fox’s live-action adaptation of Rockstar Games’ shoot-’em-up game. Payne is the story of a cop (Wahlberg), haunted by the death of his family, who’s hot on the heels of a series of new murders. O’Donell will play executive Jason Colvin. John Moore (Behind Enemy Lines) is directing the crime noir drama, which is currently shooting in Toronto, from a script by newcomer Beau Thorne.
