Lance Henriksen Moves Bishop To Aliens Vs. Predator

Sega and Rebellion Entertainment's upcoming Aliens Vs. Predator gets a little more Alien cred in the form of Lance Henriksen. The actor has been tapped to reprise his role as Bishop in the forthcoming shooter.

That's Karl Bishop Weyland, mind you, descendant of Charles Bishop Weyland from the Aliens vs. Predator film and not the milk-blooded Bishop 341-B from Aliens. So expect human coloured blood to explode from this Bishop, should we get the chance to cause him bodily harm.

"This is the first time I've been fully represented in a game, with my voice and how I look, and the Rebellion guys have done a great job," Henriksen said in the announcement. "I might score from this game!"

Yes, Lance Henriksen is looking to pull some tail from Sega's Aliens Vs. Predator, a pick up tactic he might find more difficult than originally thought.


    I LOVE Henriksen, and not to rain on anyone's parade and all, but this model of him looks nothing at all like him.

    When will artists get it in their stupid heads that facial symmetry is not just about mirroring one side of the face to the opposing side. They have to be uneven, naturally! Humans have freakishly uneven left and right sides to a face, which make up the unique look. But by being completely symmetrical and even, on both sides of the face, gives off the "uncanny Valley" look present in so many of today's computer models.

    The only one game that I can think of where the artists have got it right is in Mass Effect, the symmetry is perfectly natural, never does any one character model in the game have the same mirrored sides.

    Still, I'm looking forward to an import copy... Damn Australia and it's ridiculous banning!!

      Well it is supposed to be a descendant of Bishop.

      funnily enough he did admiral hackket in mass effect 1 and yea i dont see the point of banning games 1 phone call to my cousin in new zealand and a wire tranferr and ill have the game 3 days after release

    Man Lance Henriksen is one awesome dude.

      Hell yeah, loved his recent turn as General Shepherd in MW2, sounded perfect for the role
