I never noticed that. Dreamcast Steve clearly is based on Leo from the same film. They definitely changed it in CVX to not get sued in all likelihood.

I never really saw the resemblance besides the hair and hairline, Steve's face is different enough sorta. It's weird too because while Jack won over Rose easily, Steve never even got close lmfao

With Alexia, that is new to me. This...makes the Ashford twins even freakier though.

That’s interesting. And I never found her attractive outside of that movie.

I think it's pretty clear he's Leo. Although I'm not entirely sure about Leon. That hairstyle isn't a common thing. I feel like it was at least partially inspired by Leo but the DC Steve is a clear copy of his hair in the mid 90s. Both of these as we know were post Titanic and he was a megastar after that.




I tend to think they based Leon's on Furlong. It's literally a duplicate of his in game model's hair and it's even closer in RE4.

Oh yeah I mean Steve's hair is DEF Leo. Can't argue with that, especially when other games like MGS2 took some clear inspiration from Titanic. But I don't think his face has any resemblance.

I can see that with OG RE2 Leon however, which may make sense with the Terminator esque Mr. X...

I can definitely see Leon in Steve, but it's not explicitly him. It just looks like they loosely inspired the face but 100% copied the hair. The fact Steve was changed in a later release of the same game shows they were worried about getting sued and it has to be for that reason. Like I said Leon is kinda vague, but it's definitely either Leo or Furlong they got the idea from.
