Mike Colter is Agent Locke in Halo: Nightfall

How do you guys feel about Colter playing Agent Locke? Is anyone familiar with his work? Discuss below.

This is old news (we knew about this before E3), by the way.

Kind of old new that Mike will be playing the Agent.

I’m not all to familiar with his work.

From a recent interview, we know that this is not only his first time working with Halo, but with video games in general.

Sauce.

Ahaha, I must’ve missed that little detail… Well then I guess we’ll find out something new tomorrow! Anyone know his work, though?

Well, i’d say that’s both a blessing & a curse. I’m indeed pretty curious how he’ll play Locke.
But he seems capable. I have faith.

Here’s another recent interview I found:

http://o.canada.com/technology/gaming/halo-nightfalls-mike-colter-discusses-his-role-in-the-upcoming-live-action-halo-series

Mostly made for TV movies and part pieces on television shows. He was in Million Dollar Baby however, as the one boxer that Eastwood had trained for years. He’s also been in Men in Black 3 (I forget the exact role but I’m pretty sure it had something to do with Agent J’s life before he got “reset”, I could be wrong though).

Most recently in my mind is he’s been in Kevin Bacon’s “The Following” as the agent who assumes command of the FBI sometime in Season One. Nothing monumental, but I’m fairly certain he’s going to be solid.

Is this image from Nightfall or just a picture of him in another movie?
His style doesn’t look very ONI, maybe he is undercover or it’s the pic that is confusing…

Here is what i mean for ONI style: http://www.halopedia.org/File:Legends_officer.png

EDIT: well, way better here: http://o.canada.com/technology/gaming/halo-nightfalls-mike-colter-discusses-his-role-in-the-upcoming-live-action-halo-series

Mike is a pretty great actor from what I saw in American Horror Story. But I’m more interested in discussing the little tid-bit of plot that was in the article…

Locke, a new character in the “Halo” universe, plays a major role in “Halo 5: Guardians,” which releases on Xbox One in 2015.

Halo/Dead Space crossover for Halo 5?

Maybe he was an ODST who is eventually recruited by ONI. It looks like ODST armor.

By the way people, we’ve got an official discussion for Nightfall in the Universe section. We should direct further conversation there.

If im being completely honest, i’ve never heard of him before.

So, is he any good at acting?

I liked the Q&A though.

Locke & his team go investigating terrorist activity, and eventually happen upon “an ancient, hellish artifact during their search”.

Could this be the threat the Arbiter was referring to in the MCC trailer? The reason that he knows being Locke.

I’m sure ONI agents don’t just have one change of clothing. I’m sure they something sleek, official, and professional looking (like the picture you linked) and something that is better suited for combat (Locke’s get-up).

It depends on their role, if they are very near to combat zones and actually engage (which is so rare for ONI, excluded undercover agents) they could wear something like that.

Ridley Scott is involved.
