A collection of big-name Hollywood actors are lending their voices to the upcoming Fallout: New Vegas.
Developers Bethesda Softworks announced today that the cast of the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Fallout 3 will include: Ron Perlman, Matthew Perry, Danny Trejo, Wayne Newton, William Sadler, Zach Levi, Felicia Day, Michael Dorn, Kris Kristofferson, John Doman and Rene Auberjonois.
Ron Perlman (Hellboy) returns to voice the narrator in Fallout: New Vegas, a role he has played in every major Fallout game to date.
Matthew Perry (Friends) plays Benny, a smooth-talking, two faced gangster, and Wayne Newton takes on the role as Mr New Vegas, the radio DJ of the Mojave Wasteland.
Three celebrities take on roles as playable companions in Fallout: New Vegas: Danny Trejo (Machete, Predators) is Raul the Ghoul, a mechanic and former gunslinger; Zach Levi (Chuck) is Arcade, a member of the Followers of the Apocalypse who hides a mysterious past, and Felicia Day (The Guild) is Veronica, a sarcastic Brotherhood of Steel scribe.
The cast continues with Kris Kristofferson (Blade) as Chief Hanlon, a grizzled solider at the end of his career, and Rene Auberjonois (Boston Legal, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) as the enigmatic and reclusive Mr House.
Michael Dorn (Star Trek: The Next Generation) reprises his role as Marcus, an intelligent super mutant, who was last seen in 1998’s Fallout 2; John Doman (Mystic River, The Wire) is Caesar, the charismatic and powerful dictator at the head of Caesar’s Legion.
William Sadler (Shawshank Redemption) plays Victor, a friendly robot with the personality of an old fashioned cowboy.
“The Fallout franchise has taken narratives in interactive entertainment to the next level, and we could not be more excited about the all-new celebrity lineup for Fallout: New Vegas,” said Pete Hines, Vice President of PR and Marketing for Bethesda Softworks.
“The voice acting provided by these actors helps drive the compelling and immersive story of Fallout and further adds to the overall gameplay experience.”
In addition to the cast, players can expect to hear even more celebrity cameos throughout the world of Fallout: New Vegas.
Fallout: New Vegas is set in a new location, Las Vegas, and developers promise it takes all the action, humour and post-apocalyptic grime and grit of the beloved franchise and raises the stakes.
It is set to be released in October on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
