“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

shoots back, fixing Empire with a gimlet glare.
