Wentworth Miller: Hiking with Tyron Leitso!

Wentworth Miller: Hiking with Tyron Leitso!

Wentworth Miller goes for a hike with his Dinotopia co-star Tyron Leitso on Thursday afternoon (April 15) in Los Angeles.

The 37-year-old former Prison Break actor will be playing Chris Redfield in the upcoming movie Resident Evil: Afterlife, brother to Claire Redfield (Heroes star Ali Larter).

“The first thing I didn’t do is Google Chris Redfield,” Wentworth told Moviefone. “But I did Google pictures of him, and went to a lot of different fansites. I remember thinking, ‘If what I’m seeing is an accurate representation, this guy is straight from the WWF!’ His arms were the size of tree trunks, and I only had 4 weeks to prepare for this movie! They say that ignorance is bliss – which I think in this case is a good thing. I went into filming a blank slate. I hadn’t seen the movies, never played the video games. But I quickly became aware of a rabid, huge fan base for the movies, the video games and this specific character. I wanted to proceed with respect.”

Resident Evil: Afterlife is due out September 10, 2010.
