Xbox One-Exclusive Quantum Break Cast Includes Game of Thrones, LOTR, X-Men Actors

X-Men's Shawn Ashmore and Dominic Monaghan of Lord of the Rings and Lost fame will play two lead roles.


Remedy Entertainment has announced the full actor lineup for its upcoming video game/TV show hybrid, Quantum Break. As previously announced, the Xbox One game (which we saw more of this week at Gamescom) follows the story of the heroes, while the live-action TV show focuses on the villains.

Quantum Break's cast is headlined by X-Men actor Shawn Ashmore and Lord of the Rings and Lost star Dominic Monaghan in two of the lead roles. Game of Thrones actor Aidan Gillen and Lance Reddick from The Wire will also appear in Quantum Break.

Take a look at the full cast below the video. It's not immediately, however, which characters are heroes and which are villains. It's also possible that the distinction between hero and villain may be a little fuzzy.

Quantum Break was originally scheduled to launch in 2015, but was later shifted to 2016. At Gamescom this week, Microsoft announced the game's new release date.
