Crackdown 3

The 50-year-old actor plays Commander Jaxon in the long-awaited third instalment of the action-adventure franchise, and has opened up about how much more difficult it is imaging you are a character inside a video game.

He told Pedestrian TV: "With this video game, with 'Crackdown', I had all the motion capture nodules all over my body and the markings, and I was in a big giant empty room, so I had to imagine where everything was, and that was hard, that was a whole different thing.

"They were telling me, 'oh, these are your people in front of you and this is the button, and the council is here,' and I was like, what? That was really difficult."

The 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' star added how anyone can play the game, even if they haven't played the original and 2010 follow-up.

He also admitted it's like a "Terry Crews simulator".

He explained: "It's kinda standalone.

"You don't really have to have played the first two Crackdowns in order to be a part of this one.

"Right now it's actually, you know, the biggest, most giant, most crazy version, which is a lot like me [laughs]. I tell people it's the Terry Crews simulator."

'Crackdown 3' is released on February 15 on Xbox One and PC.
