It appears as if Obsidian Entertainment is making good use of what little interaction there is to be had in the Fallout universe. Fallout: New Vegas will feature a line-up of notable actors filling speaking roles in the game, with a list that includes Matthew Perry, Kris Kristofferson, Danny Trejo, and even Chuck's Zach Levi.

But perhaps most importantly, Ron Perlman will be the game's narrator. It's a position he's filled often in the series, and most recently with Fallout 3.

William Sadler, Felicia Day, Michael Dorn, John Doman, Rene Auberjonois will join Perlman and the other mentioned actors. In a cute twist, so will Mr. Las Vegas, Wayne Newton. The singer will play a radio DJ who riffs on himself, proving once and for all that what stays in Vegas must really stay in Vegas
 

 
Speaking to USA Today about the role, Newton said his character "has a perverted sense of humor." He added later that he has never had the time to play a game before, nor has he ever acted for one. This'll be a first time for a man who has, honestly, probably seen a little bit of everything else.

== TEASER ==As for the rest of the cast, Trejo will play Raul the Ghoul, a gunslinger; Perry will play a gangster; Levi will play a member of the Followers of the Apocalypse named Arcade; John Dorman will play the dictator Caesar; Dorn will continue his role as the intelligent super mutant Marcus; Kristofferson will play a grizzled soldier named Chief Hanlon; Sadler will play a robot named Victor; and Felicia Day will play a Brotherhood scribe named Veronica.

That's a lot voices, and apparently there will be even more cameos in the game. Fallout: New Vegas and its line-up of crazy voice talent ships this October.

Fallout!

Sounds like Obsidian is trying.

I'm kinda not a big fan of "star casts" but I guess the game won't get any worse for it

Where's Malcolm McDowell?

Hey yo we made money fools.

Where's Keith David?

#9 Posted by MrKlorox (11209 posts) -

Beats the like four people used to voice all of Oblivion and Morrowind. Fallout 3 was hardly better.
 
Whoever cast the voice of Three-Dog in F3 should be run over by a bus.

No Liam Neeson!? :'(

#11 Posted by CookieMonster (2416 posts) -

Havn't heard of any of them except Zach Levi. Game still doesn't show enough change to warrant a purchase.

#12 Posted by Mystyr_E (1190 posts) -

what's awesome: Felicia Day's voice is in it
what's not awesome: her face and body are not

#13 Posted by bonbolapti (1611 posts) -

that's cool that Matthew Perry is in it. He's apparently a huge fan of Fallout 3

#14 Edited by Doctorchimp (4074 posts) -

Not surprised Matthew Perry got in on the action, I forget what show he was on, but he was talking about how he hadn't slept the last night because he was on his 360 playing Fallout 3 all night. 
 
I gained a lot of respect for him that day. 
 
EDIT I forgot to mention, this is still Obsidian making this so who the fuck knows how it'll turn out...

#15 Posted by Jimbo (9800 posts) -

All of those actors are voiced by Nolan North.

#16 Posted by Jayross (2365 posts) -

Yvone Strahoski, and now Zachary Levi?  
 
Alright, cool. 
 
Let's hope that New Vegas isn't a glitchy mess.

You've never heard of Wayne Newton...?
#21 Posted by StingingVelvet (569 posts) -

Holy shit Marcus is back!  EXCELLENT.
 
I wonder if the boys over at No Mutants Allowed are going to throw a fit over that or be overjoyed.

Great. Maybe 15 more famous voices and they'll start making games that are not heavily broken or technically fucked.
#23 Posted by CL60 (16906 posts) -

Matthew Perry? Really? I know he played a lot of Fallout 3 though.

#24 Posted by dvorak (1496 posts) -

The rest of the cast is voiced by our main man, Nolan.

#25 Posted by MDlax43 (2 posts) -

I was on the fence about this one, but now that i know Matthew Perry is in it, consider it a day one!

" I wonder if Matthew Perry being in this game has anything to do with him playing a shitload of Fallout 3. I mean, seriously. Could he play any more video games? "

That actually can be a serious hand injury. My mom had the same injury on both hands, albeit it certainly wasn't from gaming. When I heard about him getting it from constant game playing, he gained a staggering amount of gamer cred with me. I couldn't imagine having that injury as a gamer... at least he could pay for it immediately instead of having to wait months and months without being able to use his hands. If he left it untreated he could have lost all use of his thumbs for the rest of his life. The horror.
 
edit: well actually he just needed a steroid injection to cure his. my mom needed surgery because she let it go unattended so long.

I know how it'll turn out; amazing

Matthew Perry?  Wasn't expecting that.

#31 Edited by MarkWahlberg (4601 posts) -

You know who I wish was still alive so they could do voice work in games? William Holden. 

#32 Posted by BunkerBuster (1042 posts) -

Waiting for the big reveal that Nolan North will voice the father of the protagonist.

#33 Posted by PhatSeeJay (3322 posts) -

Mathew Perry? Could he BE any more of a mutant?

The guys in Obsidian were responsible for the first  3 Fallouts (not including Fallout 3). If anything it should be vastly better than Fallout 3. Obsidian are bad at making game engines, but since they already have one from Fallout 3 they can focus on what they do best, the story.
 
In theory.

Cool about Matthew Perry. He was on The View explaining to the ladies how he hurt his hand from playing Fallout 3 so much. They didn't get it. 

#41 Posted by radioactivez0r (842 posts) -

Now please find a character actor who I don't like.  Danny Trejo and William Sadler?  Wow, suddenly I have to pay attention to this game - and go play 3.

You should be run over by a bus too!
#43 Posted by OneKillWonder_ (1726 posts) -

That's a pretty great cast. Mathew Perry is almost the last person I would expect to be a huge fallout 3 fan, but that's cool that he is anyway. I bet Zach Levi was pretty happy to be in this game, too. And Danny Trejo and Kris Kristofferson being in the game is simply bad ass. Can't wait to play it.

Could this wasteland be anymore apocalyptic?

#45 Edited by MrKlorox (11209 posts) -
@Gregomasta:  It's called Tenosynovitis (he might simply have had Trigger Finger, but both are common to eachother). My mom contracted hers on her right hand by banging her hand on the bar to make a cheering noise when drunk one night (amazingly stupid idea). Then while she was coddling and not using that hand she messed up her left hand by overusing it and carrying her heavy-ass bags (multiple purses) the wrong way too often. She eventually had to have surgery one at a time for each hand to be able to use them again. Now her thumbs/fingers sometimes lock in a bent position and she has to manually un-hitch them. It makes me cringe just thinking about it.
#46 Posted by thwak (104 posts) -

Fuck yeah! Matthew Perry!

#47 Posted by CookieMonster (2416 posts) -
@Milkman: Just googled him. He doesn't appear to be that big outside the US, and doesn't seem to be from this generation of music either. 
#48 Posted by codejunkie83 (12 posts) -

Ahhh, awesome. I agree, Oblivion and FO3 definitely needed more varied voice acting.

#49 Posted by Jaqen_HGhar (882 posts) -

Sounds good. I was going to try and not buy this until it goes for a discounted price (due to small amounts of money available) but I think I must have it fast. 
 
Weirdly I haven't seen any comments about them trying to "pad the game with celebrities to make it good" yet. Huh.  
Would be stupid to say anyway, since even the first game had a few great actors. Sure, they weren't as big then, but they sure are now! 
I am of course referring to Richard Dean Anderson and Tony Shalhoub, though Brad Garrett and Keith David are somewhat well known as well. So yeah.  
Go Fallout!
