Speaking to People.com, Max Payne movie actor Mark Wahlberg has said he won’t play the game itself because he’s scared of getting addicted.

“I didn’t want to play because I have an addictive personality,” he said. “I got more responsibility now than I’ve ever had with the kids and everything else. I don’t want to be spending 14 hours on the videogame and then eight hours on the set. It’s not going to work out.”

We reckon “14 hours” is probably wishful thinking, Mark. Film’s out next year.
