Actor Sir Ben Kingsley has confirmed he’s to appear in Fable III.

He now joins a massive list of other celebs to join the Lionhead RPG, including John Cleese, Jonathan Ross and Stephen Fry.

He will play the role of the “King of Mist”.

“I’m a voice in a new video game shortly – Fable III. I’m a wonderful wizard character who is the king of Mist Peak,” Kingsley said to CVG.

He goes on to add: “It’s very energising and good for us actors to realise that [acting] is so diverse now. [Games] are as big a jump now as I suppose when cinema was invented, when people went from the stage to the cinema thinking: It’s not really acting, is it? Now, it’s video games – and it is acting. It’s very demanding.”

Fable III’s due out by the end of the year for 360.
