The cast for Double Fine's Kickstarter success story, Broken Age, keeps growing. Wil Wheaton, Jack Black, Jennifer Hale, and Adventure Time's Pendleton Ward have all already been announced, but Double Fine President Tim Schafer revealed yet one more big name at this year's VGX.

Elijah Wood will join the cast of Broken Age as the voice of Shay, one of the game's main playable characters. Wood is perhaps best known for roles in The Lord of the Rings films as Frodo Baggins.

The story of Broken Age will allow players to switch back and forth between the game's two main characters. Schafer describes them as two young kids who's seemingly small actions end up having world-changing effects.

The first part of Broken Age is set to come out sometime in January.
