Jeremy Snead, creative director at Mediajuice announced that Sean Astin will appear in Video Games: The Movie!, the documentary film about video games crowd funded by a very successful Kickstarter campaign. Astin, who considers himself a hardcore gamer, is best known for his roles in Goonies and The Lord of the Rings films (and who reprised his role as Samwise for The Lord of the Rings: War in the North videogame).
"You read the subject line correct, Mr. Sean Astin is now a part of Video Games: The Movie!," wrote Snead in a update to the Kickstarter campaign page. "Sean and I have been in touch for the past year and I have given him occasional updates on our film. Sean is a huge gamer and has wanted to be a part of VGTM from the beginning but his filming schedule hasn't allowed it...until NOW."
