But will it be fun? I need to know.

Special Agent Lundy would be proud

Jesus fucking christ on a cracker is a line a want to hear Jennifer Carpenter saying in this game.

Though I did hate Debra at the end of Dexter, I would still find that funny.

If Jennifer Carpenter doesn't say fuck the game will be a complete failure.

I really like Anson Mount, but that sounded like some really forced acting. Hopefully that's not a final take.

Is this really Hollywood talent?

I could swear I've seen her wear that same exact shirt on Dexter. Did she raid the costume closet before she left?

This is for the localisation right? I thought this game was supposed to come out like next month.

She only owns three shirts and doesn't wear set provided costumes. Actors are so picky! :v

@tharrington: It's a Shinji Mikami game. It will always sound forced.

Anson Mount would be the best Joel (TLoU).

Not the Jenifer Carpenter... No &*&$# way.

I've never thought that voice acting in video games was entirely essential, but if you're going to go for it, these are some solid choices.

Jackie Earle Haley is pretty awesome. I want this game to be good so horror/survival horror games can start coming back to consoles again the way they used to.

Everything I've seen points to "no", but who knows?

You're watching some people practicing their lines in a recording booth, of course it sounds forced.

I wish video games would stick with professional voice actors. Voice acting isn't screen acting, and casting Hollywood talent is almost always just a marketing gimmick, trading a better performance for recognizability.

maybe its just me but I thought Jennifer's acting got way better as Dexter went on.

...if only we could say the same about the show.

Holy crap, Freddy Krueger has a beard!

Jackie Earle Haley is an excellent actor.

Totally! She carried that show through the later seasons as far as I'm concerned.

This is actually pretty cool.

Jennifer Carpenter was the best thing about Dexter towards the end. From the start of Season 7, she absolutely killed it. Seeing she's a part of this makes me immensely more interested in the game. <3

Jackie Earle Haley made Watchmen...

Hell on Wheels is a extremely underrated tv-show. The first two seasons are pretty good, I definitely enjoyed them but they also had a few issues, but season 3 was nothing less of amazing. I have never seen a show grow so much in quality from one season to the next. Hell on Wheels has quickly gone from a show I really enjoyed to watch, with a few missteps, to one of my absolute favorite shows on tv right now. And it's definitely the best thing on AMC right now.

So glad to see Anson Mount getting more work.

Posted by ripelivejam

is The Evil Within basically a triple A title now? seems like it's getting promoted the shit out of.

Posted by Radio_Resistance

@castiel: I wanna show some HoW love too :P. Second and third seasons were kind of all over the place, but I blame that on the showrunners/creators who essentially burned down the house before leaving each season... but this current season has me hooked--might be the best one yet, at least so far. My fav AMC show is still Mad Men, though!

And I'll show some Jackie Earle Haley love as well. Hell with Watchmen, he was fantastic on Human Target.

I just want to know if this game is going to be good or not. Don't play with my heart Mikami

Posted by cooljammer00

Great, because we all love it when celebrities do random Japanese games localized for American audiences.

Posted by Klager

Jackie is definitely a get and he sounds great, but the other two sound flat as pancakes.

I prefer real voice actors.

Posted by MiniPato

Can someone timestamp when the celebrities talk about how they were a gamer because they loved "X Game?" That stuff is cringe-y.

Posted by OMGmyFACE

A trailer featuring actors talking about video games never ceases to hype me up. The second I saw a hot dude looking at his hand and mumbling about playing video games when he was a kid... that's how I knew this game is going to be amazing.

Posted by teejmorrison

Don't know who Anson Mount is... but that voice acting sounded terrible.

Yes because smart is associated with a nerd? WTF Jennifer Carpenter.
Still, knowing that these are the voice talents I'm on board.

Edited by AHappyPanda

Man. Anson Mount is not good at voice acting.

Posted by yakityyakblah

Wow, when the trailer showing off the voice acting still has bad voice acting in it...

Edited by MildMolasses

does anyone aside from Bethesda do these weird announcements?

Follow up: has anyone ever bought a game because of a celebrity voice cast?

Posted by manbot47

These type of celebrity voice-talent interviews always seem really forced and awkward. It's obvious most don't care about games yet they pull out the one or two they've ever played like it's a fun hobby they never let go of. It's cool if you don't give a shit, just don't try to pander to me.

Posted by LackingSaint

Jackie Earle Haley seems great; I think he has the potential to be a really great voice actor in the future.

Yeah, it sucks that they have to stick to a script and pander to people with the whole ''I'm a gamer too, ya'll!!'' when it just comes across as so fake. One of the ''best'' example of this was Powers Boothe and his love of the Donkey Kong during Hitman Absolution's own celebrity cast trailer. In reality Donkey Kong was probably the only video game he could even name off the top of his head.

Some cool names looking to star in this all the same. Shame about Jon Curry, though, as it appears he was the placeholder for Sebastian Castellanos. Also worth noting that the game is looking much better in recent showings, too. Julie Kidman's face is a particular improvement.

And that still does nothing to change that it plays like shit.

He plays the main protagonist in Hell on Wheels, Cullen Bohannon. His acting on that show is actually pretty badass, it's like he's been born to play that role. Guess good acting skills don't simply translate into good voice acting skills?

I love Jennifer.
