This is somewhat special, because Rockstar didn't explicitly tout him around as part of the marketing campaign, as is the case with Beyond: Two Souls. To my knowledge, there hasn't been a situation in recent memory where the actor who portrayed the lead character was featured as prominently as is for her part in Quantic Dream's Beyond: Two Souls.
