Serkis gets Age Of Ultron role

Andy Serkis has said that he will have a role in the upcoming film The Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

The Lord Of The Rings star has co-founded a performance capture studio called the Imaginarium, which was already a part of the new Avengers film, but now the actor has revealed that he will play a part, too.

He told Variety: "The Imaginarium is the performance capture consultant, and I'm playing a role (in both The Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Star Wars Episode VII). On The Avengers, I've been working closely with Mark Ruffalo."

Asked whether viewers would actually see his face on screen or if it was a performance capture role, Andy replied: " I'm not at liberty to mention. But it's all the same to me. I've never drawn a distinction when playing a role, whether it be live action or performance capture.

"Acting is acting. It's just basically what you wear to the set that's different."

The Avengers: Age Of Ultron is due to be released in cinemas on April 24, 2015.
