Mark Rolston the voice of Deathstroke in Batman: Arkham Origins

Warner Bros. confirms The Shawshank Redemption actor behind the voice of mercenary assassin in upcoming game.

The Shawshank Redemption and The Departed actor Mark Rolston is responsible for the voice work for Deathstroke the Terminator in Batman: Arkham Origins.

Creative director Eric Holmes revealed the news last night during a Reddit AMA.

"Wow, there have been so many people chasing that one. Exclusive reveal, it's Mark Rolston who brings the Terminator to life," Holmes said.

Rolston also played Lex Luthor in the Young Justice TV series and provided the voice for Captain Del Rio in Halo 4.

Voicing Batman in Arkham Origins is Roger Craig Smith, who played Ezio in Assassin's Creed II and Chris Redfield in Resident Evil 6. The Joker will be played by Troy Baker, who voiced Joel from The Last of Us and Booker DeWitt in BioShock Infinite.

Deathstroke is one of multiple assassins in Batman: Arkham Origins, which will be released next week on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC.

I pretty much hate the concept of prequels but I am super excited for Origins. Batman done right can never fail.

Who's Mark Rolston? I know Shawshank Redemption, it's one of my fav movies of all time, did he play that gaylord? =(

They're not as "productive" as Nolan North, but each actor has played has several big leads. I guess either the voice acting world isn't that large or they got one job because they did a previous job well, just like film actors (or maybe a bit of both). It doesn't sound like any character will sound weird or wrong, so that's good.

Deathstroke is such a cool character. Can't wait for this game.

@Quarkzquarkz You may best remember Mark Rolston as Private Drake in ALIENS. He high-fives Vasquez with the line... "Oh, Vasquez, you're just too bad." after Vasquez insults Hudson in the famous scene below.

Hudson: "You ever been mistaken for a man?"

Vasquez: "No. Have you?"

@Gegglington Troy Baker absolutely nails the Joker. He's a fine choice. Hamill was good, but he's not doing it any more. Time to move on.
