One of the many things I love about Bethesda is amidst the compelling worlds they create visually, they still put a premium in getting top level voice talent for their videogames. This morning, the company announced Susan Sarandon, Carrie Fisher (Star Wars), Michael Madsen (Donnie Brasco, Kill Bill), and John Slattery are among the actors signed on for the upcoming title Dishonored, a story which centers on the adventures of Corvo, a supernatural assassin who is out for vengeance.
Sarandon, who oozed sexiness years ago opposite Burt Lancaster in Atlantic City, will play Granny Rags, a deranged elderly woman who crosses paths with our protagonist, with Madsen serving as the voice of Daud, a fellow assassin. Fisher’s voice will be heard through speakers that spew out propaganda through the city of Dunwall (where the story is set). Slattery, best known as Roger Sterling from Mad Men, is Admiral Havelock, a person who helps Corvo in his mission. Dexter composer Daniel Licht created the score for the first person shooter, which will be available for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 consoles October 9th.
“Having such talented actors voice Dishonored’s compelling cast of characters adds a rich, powerful element to the game,” said Arkane Studios president Raphael Colantonio about the title, which also features the voice talent of Chloe Grace Moretz and Game of Thrones actress Lena Headey. “We want to draw people into this virtual world and make it feel real. This celebrated cast adds wonderful depth and credibility to the overall Dishonored gameplay experience.”
Here’s a behind the scenes look at the voice cast, from NBCNews.com.
