DC Douglas, the actor who played Albert Wesker in Resident Evil 5, has told Destructoid that working on the game was as good as his gig on the NBC sitcom Boston Common.

When asked if games provide the same amount of prestige as TV and film, he readily agreed that it’s a medium that’s come of age.

“Are you kidding? I am getting just as much response from fans AND industry folks regarding RE5 as I did when I was a recurring on NBC’s Boston Common in the mid 1990s,” he said.

“VG has arrived. Now actors just have to get some residuals for our work like we do with films and TV.”

Funnily enough, he never mentioned if his small stint on the campy soap Passions caused the same stir.
