Mass Effect 2 Is Full Of Stars

BioWare has revealed the voice cast for Mass Effect 2, with a cast of new and returning voice actors that covers just about every corner of science fiction fandom.

Of course the biggest addition to the Mass Effect 2, Martin Sheen as the Illusive Man, has already been outed, but he's just the tip of the iceberg as far as new cast members are concerned. BioWare has pulled in talent from multiple television and movie properties in order to help facilitate a more emotionally engaging story.

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.

BioWare co-founder Dr. Ray Muzyka took the announcement as another opportunity to spout his catch phrase.

"Emotionally engaging narrative is a key design pillar for BioWare, and the top-notch voice talent in Mass Effect 2 helps drive this goal. Credible, powerful personalities are vital to delivering a compelling story experience in BioWare's games, and we have assembled an amazing ensemble cast that surpasses the very high bar set in the original Mass Effect!"


    keith david is probably the coolest cat ever born.

      And better known I would have thought for being the Arbiter, from the Halo franchise. Not that guy in Pitch Black and that other Riddick movie I will not name.

      Heh 2 Halo people, him and Baldwin.

        He's also Sgt Foley in Modern Warfare 2

    not bad i like micheal hogan was the shit in battlestar i just looked at the IMDB to see who was returning and Marina Sirtis was Matriarch Benezia im just thinking how thier gonnna write her back in didnt really die or liara flashback sequences (also i know shell probably do another charictor im just being incredibly wry)

    You know what would have been a cooler title for this article? 'My God, it's full of stars!'
