EA looks to Hollywood for Syndicate’s voice cast

Friday, 10th February 2012 17:22 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

EA has announced the voice cast for Syndicate, and it includes names which should be very familiar to you.

Providing the voice for Lily Drawl is the lovely Rosario Dawson (Alexander, Sin City), Brian Cox (The Bourne Identity, Troy), will play as Jack Denham and Michael Wincott (The Crow) lends his voice to Jules Merit.

Jack is the “ruthless power behind the boardroom throne” for the Eurocorp organization, while Jules is its “highly regarded senior agent” who has led “successful operations against the Aspari corporation.”

Drawl, is the “rising star of EuroCorp,” who is torn between “the demands of her corporate masters and the underground resistance to syndicate rule.”

Here’s what Dawson had to say about lending her voice to the game: “I’m amazed how videogames have become so deep in story, delivering fantastic worlds and memorable characters rivaling big Hollywood films,” she said. “I was excited when EA approached me to play Lily Drawl in Syndicate. She’s an interesting and strong female character. How cool is it to play the mastermind who designed the military chip inside the player’s head!”

Syndicate releases February 21 in North America and February 24 in Europe for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

    Trudat.

    Spend on the writers, save on the actors.

    Brian Cox’s voice is always worth my money.

    Writers are a sorely underused resource in the games industry.

    And guess which area of our industry suffers the most?

    This, conversely, is why I love Obsidian so much – they’re a studio of developers who can actually write. And not write worth shit, not write a little bit, but are actually good at it.

    They’re the only developer that still exists that I’m aware of that actually employs talented writers. All of the others have died off.

    More is the pity.

    Publisher higher-ups love it though, rubbing up against ‘stars’, “High Rosario, yeah, we did some pretty big numbers this year, pretty big”

    Rosario Dawson’s last sentence reads like it’s from Digitiser :-)

    Ahh but the true reason for doing celeb voice actors is so they hopefully get more buyers from fans of the actor/actress.

    Dear Mr TheWulf,

    Obsidian wrote Alpha Protocol. They have their off days just like everyone else.

    Yours, AZ.

    Speaking of characters, voices and actors… When did Jill Valentine became so ugly and Chris Refield became so fat? I mean, I really can’t think a lot while looking at that image to your right.
