An inFormal poll of the office reveals that I was apparently in a distinct minority in my appreciation of Cole McGrath's gravelly tones in the excellent InFamous, the PS3-exclusive open-world electric superhero romp from earlier this year.
Apparently even Sony itself disagrees with me, as word from voice actor David Sullivan's Twitter indicates he's auditioned for the role of Cole, which is apparently being recast in the inevitable sequel. Here's the original tweet, as reported earlier today by G4.
"First voiceover/motion capture audition today for a video game," said actor David Sullivan over Twitter this morning. "Re-casting of Cole in the sequel of Infamous. 'I'll melt your face.' e.g"
However, Sullivan has since deleted the offending tweet and replaced it with a slightly more equivocal version. Of course, the fact that someone got uppity enough to make him remove his comment just validates the whole affair further.
Had a very cool audition today for role in a very famous video game that I'm not allowed to talk about.
With apologies to Sucker Punch, Uncharted 2 has just unseated InFamous as my favorite PS3 game this year, but I'm still very much looking forward to the further adventures of Cole McGrath, whatever he sounds like next time around. Did anybody else like that character? Who's ready for more InFamous around here?
