After starring turns on the television series ”NYPD Blue” and Broadway’s Glengarry Glen Ross , actor Gordon Clapp has found a way across the digital divide. He voices General Randall—a rough, buff, self-serving zealot--in Prototype , Sierra Entertainment’s highly anticipated video game, slated for release in August. (See the trailer at http://www.­prototypegame.com.) Randall tries to rein in Prototype, a young man granted superhuman powers who is attempting to recover his memory. ”Randall’s a bad guy, but he’s got a full head of hair, so it’s a tradeoff,” Clapp says, laughing. ”A whole new generation of fans will think this is what I look like. Even my son suddenly thinks I’m cool. Now I just have to figure out how to work one of these games.”
