Kane, Kucan return to C&C

Actor Joe Kucan to reprise role as leader of Brotherhood of Nod; Kane to appear in high-def live-action scenes in new version of RTS series Command & Conquer.

Command & Conquer games without legendary supervillain Kane are like the original Star Wars movies without Darth Vader. Likewise, Kane not being played by actor Joe Kucan is like Vader without the baritone voice of James Earl Jones.

Thankfully, Electronics Arts knows the strength of the Dark Side is strong, and today announced that Kucan will reprise his role as the leader of the Brotherhood of Nod in the upcoming Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars.

Kane will appear in high-definition live-action cutscenes throughout the game, which will propel the game's sci-fi story forward. Tiberium Wars is set in the year 2047 on an Earth that has been almost completely covered in resource-sapping Tiberium crystals. With few zones left that are actually inhabitable, Kane leads his army on a quest to conquer the remaining safe zones, and gamers must try to stop him.

Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars is being developed by EA's Los Angeles studio and is slated to ship in 2007 for the PC. For more information on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

they may look similar but as mentioned above: Kane = Joe Kucan where as Yuri = Udo Kier

Is it just me, or does Kane bear a striking resemblance to Yuri?

Is it just me or is that new video with Kane (official trailer 3) out of sync when he talks?

lol, glad EA had the sense to get this guy back. Possibly could have been a revolt otherwise. Ironically, I wonder if James Earl Jones will be back, as he was in C&C 1 :)

C&C is the only game I know of that actually does live action cutscenes properly.

Wow, EA did something right for once. Without the Live-action cutscenes, its just another warcraft with different units. C&C RULZ!!!!

tough guy? why do all tough guys look so effeminate? and rasslin is more than a little homoerotic. i mean, close-body grappling while wearing only lurid tight shorts and maybe masks and all that butch talk? it's just amusing, thats all..!
