Considering that Namco's classic arcade icon Pac-Man is pretty much nothing but a huge mouth, it's a little surprising he's never really used it to do much of anything but eat.
That's going to change with Pac-Man World 3 for the PlayStation 2, GameCube, Xbox, PSP, and PC, as voice production company Outsource Media announced today that it has given the yellow wonder a voice courtesy of actor Martin T. Sherman. According to his Internet Movie Database listing, Sherman has previous experience voice acting in games from Timesplitters: Future Perfect and Driver 3, as well as some live-action experience, as in the new Elijah Wood film Green Street Hooligans.
Sadly, it seems that people have forgotten that Pac-Man already had a voice. The not-so-classic 1982 Pac-Man cartoon saw the golden gobbler voiced by Marty Ingels, who also spoke for '70s Grape Ape sidekick Beegle Beagle.
