This last Friday, Mr. Van Hoven invite one of his college friends, James Mount, to come to speak at Oratory. James is currently working as an actor for TV, movies, commercials, and video games. He started out in theatre in middle school and continued through college before eventually doing it full-time. He even gave us some clips of Mr. Van Hoven with long hair during their college production of Hair.

James started off by showing some roles he has taken on during his acting career. Two of the biggest roles shown were Agent Thoms in Homeland and Officer Dove in Gotham. Mr. Mount even gave the boys his Joker laugh, which he used for the shoot. He also recounted actually getting his nose broken during that scene, which forced him to go to the hospital to get it fixed before finishing the scene.

One of the most intriguing parts of James’s presentation was the work that he had done for video games. Some notable ones included Rockstar games such as LA Noire, Max Payne 3, and Red Dead Redemption. His experiences working with Rockstar also involved motion capture, which he showed off to Oratory in some of his videos. Mr. Mount also gave some fun anecdotes from his time working at Rockstar including one about jumping off a tower even though he usually does not do his own stunts.

Overall, everyone was thrilled by his presentation. We all appreciated the time he spent and will gladly welcome him back if the chance arises.
