The actors behind Battlestar Galactica’s Saul Tigh and Caprica Six are lending their fucking voices to Mass Effect 2. I’m going to lose my god damn mind.
One of the reasons I love Mass Effect so fucking much is that it allows me to dabble in the sort of universe that makes my nerd dong all salty with fluids. It’s like being able to run around the Battlestar Galactica or Star Wars universe. Calm down douchebags, I know it’s not an exact analog, but it’s close enough.
So, being able to hear their silky smooth and gruff voices respectively is putting me into a nerd froth. Also, the rest of the voice acting list is pretty impressive too:
We’ve got Tricia Helfer and Michael Hogan from Battlestar Galactica playing the voice of the new Normandy and Captain Bailey respectively. From NBC’s Chuck comes Yvonne Strahovski as genetically engineered Cerberus operative Miranda Lawson, joined by co-star Adam Baldwin, better known as Firefly’s Jayne Cobb, who’ll be taking on the role of Kal ‘Reegar. Marina Sirtis from the original Mass Effect taps out and fellow Star Trek: The Next Generation cast member Michael “Worf” Dorn taps in as Gatatog Uvenk. The Matrix’s Carrie-Anne Moss portrays Aria Y’Loak, the crime lord who rules the planet Omega. Finally we have Emmy-award winning House of Saddam star Shohreh Aghdashloo will play the role of Admiral Shala’Raan vas Tonbay.
And of course we can’t forget returning cast members Seth Green, who had some of the first game’s best lines as Normandy pilot Joker, and The Chronicles of Riddick’s Keith David, returning as Admiral David Anderson.
Shazam! I can’t wait.
