Rebellion have confirmed that Lance Henriksen will appear in Aliens Vs Predator as Karl Bishop Weyland, a descendent of Charles Bishop Weyland, the founder of the infamous Weyland-Yutani corporation from the Aliens universe. He will lend his likeness and voice to the production.

"They've made me look very good," said Lance Henriksen, "This is the first time I've been fully represented in a game, with my voice and how I look, and the Rebellion guys have done a great job."

Yeah well, Henriksen does a lot of stuff when the paycheck is right. He is right up there with Jeremy Irons and Christopher Walken. Nevertheless, nice news.

The last I heard he had a popular TV series... 
 
He probably does lots of voice work, I can imagine his voice being very popular.

Lance Henrikson is awesome as and actor and his voice overs are always superb. Fun to think that he was to be auditioned as the Terminator role back in the day.

after hearing him in both mass effect and MW2  his voice has changed so , so much... its almost unrecognisable to the Bishop from the movie. 
 
I totally hear he sells self made pottery on a website.

He is Admiral Hackett in Mass Effect right? And he was Sheppard in MW2, I thought he sounded very similar in both games 
 
And also, wasnt his voice and likeness used In Escape from Dark Athena? Awesome voice

@Venatio:
i dont know about Dark athena but in Aliens he's very softly spoken but in  his recent voicework he sounds like a man who smokes nonstop  from the moment he wakes up to the moment he goes to sleep (this isn't a complaint about his voice acting as I find it to be of a pretty good standard)

Yeah, he, Nolan North and Keith David are great video game voices

 He sounds a little croakier than in his Alien performances, but that's only natural with the passing of time. His voice is still very recognisable, imo it's still distinct.
