As if the nerd appeal of Mass Effect 2 weren't already burying the needle, today BioWare shed some more light on the game's voice cast, which is basically a murderer's row of sci-fi regulars and dependable character actors. Keith David (Men at Work, the second Westside Connection album) and Seth Green (Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch: Make My Video, Old Dogs), whose characters return from the first game, are joined by Martin Sheen ( Apocalypse Now, Spawn), Shohreh Aghdashloo ("FlashForward", The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2), Yvonne Strahovski ("Chuck"), Adam Baldwin ("Firefly", My Bodyguard), Michael Dorn (“Star Trek: The Next Generation”, Saints Row 2), Tricia Helfer (“Battlestar Galactica”, Halo 3: ODST), Michael Hogan (“Battlestar Galactica”), and Carrie-Anne Moss ( The Matrix, "Models Inc").
That's a pretty solid cast, most of whom already have a fair amount of voice-over experience, but really, we're just happy that Keith David is back. Vinny points out that this video is basically the cast of Mass Effect 2. Also, Keith David's finest work. Enjoy.
Actually, scratch that. If Mass Effect 2 is going to take cues from anything, it should be this.
