masi-okaMasi Oka, the actor best known for his role in the Heroes TV series, is also a real gamer. As a proof, he is planning to create a MMORPG-based game and movie together with Dreamworks, based on a pretty interesting concept that I believe all gamers had in mind at a given point.

While playing one of his favorite MMOs, Masi Oka realized that in there you can be whoever you want to be (hopefully he didn’t realize that after flirting with a “girl” for ten days only to find out that “she” had a beard and was named Bob). Either way, he asked himself a question: “What if you had to live up to the person you created in the virtual world?” The answer will most likely be revealed by the movie and the computer game to follow it.

Other details, however, are unknown at the moment, but we do know that the game (as well as the movie) will be titled The Defenders. And if it will be a MMORPG, it will be the first such game to be developed simultaneously with a movie. However, I doubt that Oka’s The Defenders will be MMO since these games usually require long development cycles before being ready for the public.
