With Mass Effect 2 BioWare seems to be intent on making sure that the members of the Sci-Fi Actor’s Guild (if there is indeed such a thing) are able to stay steadily employed and keep their resumes nicely padded.
Tricia Helfer, Carrie-Anne Moss, Michael Hogan, Adam Baldwin, and Michael Freakin’ Dorn? If you don’t recognize these names, you need to turn in your geek card along with your rubber Vulcan ears and replica lightsaber. And that’s not even counting Liz Sroka, Seth Green, and the deep, commanding pipes of Keith David returning from the first Mass Effect.
And then we come to Martin Sheen – a big Hollywood name saddled with what is possibly one of the worst character names in history, “Illusive Man”. Not even The Illusive Man, you’ll note. Just Illusive Man. *Groan* They could have just called him “Mr. X” and been less cheesy.
Regardless, this is shaping up to be one hell of an epic assemblage of talent. Take a look below for yourself.
Mass Effect 2 will be warping into a spaceport near you on January 26th (29th in Sector Europa) of 2010.
