Dishonored Features Star Studded Cast

Dishonored Features Star Studded Cast

Voice acting is a cornerstone of any great game. Taking a note from this belief, it seems that Arkane Studios has spared no expense on the voices of some of the characters of Dishonored.

The all-star cast of Dishonored begins with Carrie Fisher, best known as Leia Organa from the Star Wars series, will be voicing various government propaganda recordings. Chloe Grace Moretz, acknowledged for her role as Hit-Girl from Kick-Ass, will voice Young Lady Emily, daughter to the Empress. Lena Headey, better known as Cersie Lannister from HBO’s Game of Thrones, will voice Emily’s guardian Calista. John Slattery, famous for playing Roger Sterling in AMC’s Mad Men, will voice Admiral Havelock, an ally to Corvo, the main character. Brad Dourif, a Golden Globe winner, will voice Piero, an inventor who created Corvo’s iconic mask. There is even an Academy Award winner – Susan Sarandon, known for her roles in Thelma and Louise and Dead Man Walking. Sarandon will voice Granny Rags, a blind woman who has become deranged from being forced out of aristocracy into the streets of Dunwall’s poorer districts. Lastly, Michael Madsen, who played Budd in Kill Bill, will uniformly voice Daud, a mysterious Assassin.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes video of the cast in action:

    there was a really interesting interview on Xplay the other day, they had nolan north on there and a few other industry peeps and the question was is it really worth developers spending such big bucks on hollywood stars?
    it was really surprising and interesting to see what the general consensus was.
    everyone there said no.
    most of the time its not really worth it, its not required.
    i cant see a million dollar paid actor from the biggest best hollywood studio making a game like uncharted or whatever any better!
    only place where it would improve the game is where your trying to make a drama story, when your really trying to connect with the audience and your trying to tell a deep complex story it works wonders!
    so yea i think its a massive waste of money to hire these
    million dollar actors for a game, especially if your just doing voice acting!
    only game where it would be worth it is a game like beyond two souls, i was actually really surprised and elated elan page is the main star.
    thats really going to help the game bring it to another level!
    however hiring her to play as elana in uncharted 4 would be a MASSIVE waste of money!
