Fallout: New Vegas Features an All-Star Voice Cast

Bethesda Software has recently announced their voice cast for the upcoming New Vegas title. I must say that I’m really impressed with the lineup. Not mentioned on the following list is ‘Mr. Las Vegas’ himself, Wayne Newton, who will be voicing the character ‘Mr. New Vegas’, which is a programmed radio DJ. Here is the main cast list:

  • Ron Perlman (“Hellboy”, “Sons of Anarachy”)
  • Matthew Perry (“Friends”)
  • Mr. Las Vegas himself, Wayne Newton
  • William Sadler (“Shawshank Redemption”)
  • Zach Levi (“Chuck”)
  • Felicia Day (“The Guild”)
  • Michael Dorn (“Star Trek:The Next Generation”)
  • Kris Kristofferson (“Blade Trilogy,”)
  • Danny Trejo (“Machete”, “From Dusk Till Dawn”)
  • John Doman (“Mystic River”, “The Wire”)
  • Rene Auberjonois (“Boston Legal”, “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”)

Bethesda has also stated that players can expect to hear “even more celebrity cameos throughout the world of Fallout: New Vegas.” Pete Hines, President of PR and Marketing for Bethesda had this to say about the voice cast:

“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. The voice acting provided by these actors helps drive the compelling and immersive story of Fallout and further adds to the overall gameplay experience.”

Is it just me, or do these remind you of beefed up claptraps from Borderlands?

Bethesda has also put out a nice little description for each of the characters:
— Perry’s character, Benny, is the head of the Geckos family. A smooth-talking criminal but also a bit of a weasel, Benny may sound dangerous, but isn’t that tough. Ultimately he’s more of a ruthless pragmatist than a villain.

— Zachary Levi’s playable character Arcade, is a member of the Followers of the Apocalypse who hides a mysterious past. He’s described as quiet, analytical, and cautious. Highly ethical and moral, he understands the post-apocalyptic world is one in which sometimes, people just have to be shot in the head. HE is more concerned with large-scale issues than the needs of individuals. He may appreciate what individual people go through, but firmly believes that it’s more important to affect large-scale societal change than to fix problems little by little.

— Another newcomer who will be familiar to video gamers is Felicia Day (The Guild), who voices the playable character Veronica, a sarcastic Brotherhood of Steel scribe.

— A third playable companion is Raul the Ghoul, a mechanic and former gunslinger voiced by Danny Trejo (From Dusk Till Dawn).

— Ron Perlman (Hellboy) returns to voice the narrator inFallout: New Vegas, a role he has played in every major Falloutgame to date.

— Actor and singer/songwriter Kris Kristofferson (The Blade Trilogy) plays Chief Hanlon, a grizzled solider at the end of his career.

— Rene Auberjonois (Boston LegalStar Trek: Deep Space Nine) is the enigmatic and reclusive Mr. House.

— Michael Dorn (Star Trek:The Next Generation) returns as Marcus, an intelligent super-mutant, last seen in 1998’s Fallout 2.

— John Doman (Mystic RiverThe Wire) plays Caesar, the charismatic and powerful dictator at the head of Caesar’s Legion.

— William Sadler (The Shawshank Redemption) is Victor, a friendly robot with the personality of an old fashioned cowboy.

Obsidian Studios has been at the helm of this title, with the game set to release October 19, 2010 on PS3, Xbox and PC.
