Bethesda's upcoming stealth-action game Dishonored will be the latest to tap Hollywood voice talent to bring its characters to life. The publisher announced the voice cast for Dishonored today, revealing Star Wars hero Carrie Fisher, Thelma & Louise actress Susan Sarandon, and a host of others.
Fisher will be heard in Dishonored over a loudspeaker in the game's city of Dunwall as the broadcaster of government propaganda. Academy Award winner Sarandon will play former aristocrat Granny Rags, an elderly blind woman who has become deranged after years of living on the streets.
Other Hollywood actors lending their voices to Dishonored include Brad Dourif (Lord of the Rings, One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest), who will take on the role of an inventor named Piero. This character creates a number of devices that main character Corvo can use.
Rounding out the voice talent for Dishonored is John Slattery (Mad Men, The Adjustment Bureau), Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs, Free Willy), Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass, Hugo), and Lena Headey (300, Imagine Me & You).
Bethesda also announced today that the he soundtrack for Dishonored was composed by Daniel Licht, who previously provided music work for Dexter and Body of Proof.
Set for release on October 9 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, Dishonored is a first-person action game that puts players in the boots of Corvo, an assassin tasked with protecting the empress of a stylized steampunk city known as Dunwall. When the empress is murdered and Corvo framed for the killing, sinister forces grant the accused assassin supernatural abilities to pursue his revenge.
