“Ben Mendelsohn loves Pac-Man. He’s a wizard on the pinball table. But when it comes to virtual-reality gaming, his experience amounts to a single session on a horror simulator. “You’re in a house and there are gobliny-type dudes coming towards you as the lights go out,” the Australian actor recalls. “I’d hear a noise — GRAAH! — and look over and there’d be some beast that’s advanced.” So he got a little scared? “No, I’m not giving you that,” he shoots back, fixing Empire with a gimlet glare. “I found myself immersed.””
