Rofl, this is great, why didn't they show this before, the blooper outtakes of the actors?
Would've been a fun extra on the game to watch.

Also, I think there's technically no facial animation done, it's an actual actors face/head in full 3D, recorded by a dozen cameras surrounding the actor's head, while recording their lines, and then all merged together to make one full 3Demensional video image.

You can even see the light of that room reflecting in their eyes, because the room had to be so well litted from many angles, so you wont see any shadow or darker side on their faces showing in the finished stage, and their hair changes because of different recording sessions, Cole's side burns change lenghts every now and then.

There's probably been some animation involved, like the fingers and objects and such, but for the face and head, probably no need.

LA did an amazing thing with facial animations and capture....I hope all games should follow its lead, (I'm looking at you new Deus Ex: outdated facial animation).
