If you’ve been on social media, or if you’re just a Netflix fan, you’ve probably heard of Mike Flanagan’s latest horror series called “Midnight Mass.” Apparently, even the hit series has video game inspiration – at least from one of the main actors in the series.
Rahul Kohli, who plays Sheriff Hassan (very excellently, I might add) has confirmed that he is paying homage to Joel from The Last of Us with his look on the show. He mentioned it in a video chat with YouTuber Kristen Maldonado.
For me personally, I have implemented a few things myself. The sheriff’s look was inspired – or at least his haircut and beard and stuff – as it was inspired by Joel’s character in The Last of Us. It was my little tribute. – Rahul kohli
You can watch Kohli mention this around 3.35am.
It’s really a nice touch of Kohli, isn’t it? Of course, a live show of The Last of Us is in development and the first image of it has been released.
It’s another great example of movies and video games intersecting in ways we never would have thought of, and I’m not complaining.
In other The Last of Us news, Naughty Dog confirmed that they are still working on this mode and will post more information “when it’s ready”.
