Moviegoers, Meet Your New Leon S. Kennedy

Leon S. Kennedy is in the upcoming Resident Evil: Retribution 3D, and actress Milla Jovovich has confirmed that Johann Urb will be playing the role. You might remember Urb from such films as Eastwick, 2012, and The Hottie and the Nottie.

Jovovich confirmed the casting in a recent tweet: "AND if u checked out my vid yesterday from the table reading u wld hve noticed Johann Urb! He is our Leon Kennedy n looks jst like him BTW!!"

Judging from the images above, there is a pretty decent resemblance between the two, right down to the same dopey haircut. In the film, Kennedy is leader of a resistance movement who helps Jovovich battle the Umbrella Corporation and zombies. Didn't they do all of that already? I have to admit, my memory of these movies is growing increasingly hazy.
