We're fans of survival horror videogame Silent Hill. We're also fans of survival horror zombie-novela, The Walking Dead.
In an interesting twist, those two franchises' fates have become intertwined as the newest Silent Hill game has tapped the talents of The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus. Reedus, popularly known as the crossbow-using Daryl Dixon in the TV series, has become a major character in the new Silent Hill game, currently being developed by Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima and director Guillermo "Pacific Rim" del Toro.

While film adaptations of videogames aren't a new thing, the act of using a real actor's likenesses in a high-profile videogame is a fairly fresh concept. Hoping to hop on to the trend before everyone else does, here we play casting director, and pick the real actors we'd put in our favorite videogames. And we're sticking to Pinoy artistas for this one guys!

Why: Because, duh, Derek has a shaved head like Shepard.
