Actor Sean Bean just can't catch a break. If there's one thing he's known for, it's his ability to die a great death. Because of that, it shouldn't be a surprise that with his involvement in Hitman 2 that his role is to ... yup, you guessed it: Die. Just ... uh, don't talk about it on Twitter.
The reveal came from Twitter user @TheFatConsol3R when he shared the below ban notification:
Following the ban, the team over at VG247 essentially put Twitter on blast for a good cause. The result? TheFatConsol3R is back and ready to kill Sean Bean. In the strictly fictional sense ... we hope.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of the upcoming Hitman 2 video game” said Bean in a recent press release, “It’s always exciting to take on a new role, and I look forward to seeing my character in action when the Elusive Target mission launches.”
