Exclamation Similarity between L.A. Noire and the movie "L.A. Confidential"

Well i just got the hunger for "noire" movies so that i've been looking for such movies. One of them discovered was "L.A. Confidential".
While watching the movie, I couldn't have notice the similarity with L.A. Noire...

And They Are:

Fact #1

Leland Monroe (Noire)



Leland 'Buzz' Meeks (Confidential)




--------------------------------------------------

Fact #2

Mickey Cohen is mentiond in both L.A. noire and "" Confidential!


I'll keep posting my findings...

1. I can't believe you have never seen L.A. Confidential and 2. You know that Mickey Cohen was a real life mobster in LA right? So that would explain why they are in both trying to keep things in semi realism or truth.

I just watched this last night and saw some similarities as well

The smart Detective who is always looking for the justice and does not follow the other cops.

Noire: Cole Phelps
Confidential: Edmund Exley
(Also both get caught having sex with a lady)

The famous cops

Noire: Roy Earle
Confidential: Jack Vincennes

The Drunk Cop

Noire: Rusty Galloway
Confidential: Dick Stensland

The Irish police captain

Noire: James Donnely
Confidential: Dudley Smith

There are cops that are involved with heroine trade and working with the mobsters.

The breaking and entering scenes reminded me so much of the games as well as all of the cars.

There is probably more also

Leland Monroe is one of the best game character to actor likenesses I've ever seen, its voiced and clearly looks like Fringe actor John Noble.

Who would you cast if they made LA Noire the movie ?

I've not played the game very long yet, but for me Michael Rapaport would be perfect for the role of Cole.

Because they are made with real actors and motion capture technology.
