Dio cut from Brütal Legend credits

Ronnie James Dio, of heavy metal band Dio fame, has apparently been cut from Brütal Legend’s voice actor list.

The singer’s management has reportedly confirmed the news, not citing any specific reasons. It noted that actor Tim Curry will be filling the position.

Dio and Ozzy Osbourne, who’s appearing in the Schafer title, have a “feud” going on, apparently, which may account for the deletion.

Via Spinelanguage and Joystiq.

    “Ronnie James Dio, of Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Dio and lately Heaven and Hell fame, has apparently…”

    There you go Pat, fixed that for you ;-)

    BTW, I don’t know if double-O had a hand in this, as the article implies. I’d suspect *other* parties interested to cut Dio from the picture, especially with the latest Black Sabbath, sorry Sharon, scratch that, Heaven and Hell lovely album out. It’s never too late to grow some balls Ozzy!

    I can’t imagine that Ozzy and Dio STILL have a feud going on…that would be ridiculous.
