After concluding the genesis storyline of Sonya, Jax and Kano last week with episode #2 of Mortal Kombat: Legcay, this week a new chapter begins, featuring action hero Johnny Cage!
This episode has a noticeably different feel to it and opens in a style similar to E! True Hollywood Story. Johnny Cage (Matt Mullins) is a once famed action star searching to rebuild his legacy as a leading actor in the world of entertainment. Cage's ideas revolve around creating a reality show where he would physically disposed of criminals with actual martial arts rather than any staging whatsoever. Network executives shoot down this idea, but repackage Cage's idea and market it to another action star (Erica Cerra). This enrages Cage to the point where he attacks several members of the production crew and security. Cue Shang Tsung's (Johnson Phan) entrance. He offers Cage an "escape from everything" as the episode comes to a close.
In this episode, members of the cast and crew from MK: Legacy (Kevin Tanchaeron) as well as the Mortal Kombat video game development team (Ed Boon) make cameo guest appearances. See who else you can spot!
