Bethesda continues trend of having old accented actors in their games.

Quote:
If you're the sort of person who just can't get into a role-playing game unless a famous person's voice periodically appears to tell you to do a quest or something, then I have wonderful news: famous actors are in Bethesda's upcoming first-person role-playing game, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Following in the footsteps of such contemporaries as Patrick Stewart and Liam Neeson, veteran Swedish actor Max Von Sydow headlines Skyrim's cast as both the narrator of the game's most recent trailer, and as Esbern, "a chronicler and agent of the Blades who has survived in hiding." Exactly how much Von Sydow we'll get in the game is currently unknown, but when you get the star of such prestigious films as The Seventh Seal, The Exorcist, and Flash Gordon in your game, one would hope you'd get a fair amount of interaction with him.

Elsewhere in the cast, we have Christopher Plummer, the actor most famous for his role in the brilliant 1987 film adaptation of the TV series Dragnet, but also for other, less famous movies like The Sound of Music, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, and the upcoming David Fincher adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Plummer will play Arngeir, "a powerful Greybeard elder" among an "order of philosopher monks."

The last of the big three additions is Joan Allen, the woman you should most certainly recognize as Pamela Landy in the Bourne trilogy, the mom from Face/Off, and the bitch-in-heels warden from the surprisingly great Death Race remake. Allen stars as "Delphine, one of the last remaining members of the Blades – an ancient warrior society once sworn to protect the Emperor."

Other, less famous actors in the cast include Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter (who also happens to be married to the head of Bethesda's parent company, Zenimax CEO Robert A. Altman); Babylon 5 star and B-movie queen Claudia Christian; former frequent L.A. Law guest star and voice of Woodhouse on FX's Archer, George Coe; Battlestar: Galactica's Michael Hogan; the woman who played Simone in Pee-Wee's Big Adventure (Diane Salinger); Weeds regular Renee Victor; and Czech bad-guy-for-hire (see his work on everything from MacGyver to Angel) Vladimir Kulich.

That's a lot of famous people, but Bethesda still has a long way to go if it wants to match up with the L.A. Noire voice cast, which boasts roughly ten famous people for every minute of gameplay. And as we all know, the number of popular actors contained in a video game is a direct analog to its level of quality. It's science.
Maybe this time Lynda Carter will be more than just a fucking Orc shop keeper. Also, Woodhouse from Archer is the best. The best. Also, Michael Hogan was in Mass Effect 2 so fuck you for stealing, Bethesda. THAT SHIT DON'T FLY.


I dunno why this is news. But now you know.

So is this the reason why in like, so many of the RPGs I've played with voice acting, they all sound vaguely British at best, or outright British (or some manner of European) at worst?

Yeah. See, WRPGs have this fascination with British people. It makes sense for something like Fable which is just fake Britain. But for something like Oblivion and Skyrim, I guess it's because they really like Lord of the Rings or something even though I think that people from different regions should not all sound like they came from England.

Good, so I wasn't just imagining that a lot of WRPGs seem to like British accents, subtle or not. Here I thought I was crazy.

Those two things aren't mutually exclusive, ya know.

I can dig British accents, but they may be overused or overhyped at times.

I wonder what actual professional voice actors/actresses are in the game, i'll have to look that up as that interests me more.

I gues they want you to think Skyrim is Britain, which makes sense in Fable like Droog said, not so sure here. Hell dragons appear in more than just British films and folklore.
