A selection of voice actors who’ll be appearing in Dishonored 2 has gone up at that retailer-associated publication which is posting all the Dishonored 2 stuff at the moment. While celebrity voice actors don’t always deliver in videogames, the choices are at least very encouraging.
First of all, Corvo (who was silent for the original game) will be voiced by Stephen Russell, of Thief: The Dark Project series fame. This is rather appropriate, given how many nods and design inspirations for Dishonored came from the older Looking Glass Studios titles. Now Garrett will practically be showing up in the sequel.
The other voice talent is more familiar from recent pop-culture series’ like Daredevil and Game of Thrones. From the former, you have Vincent D’Onofrio (Fisk/Kingpin) as the Duke of Serkono, and Rosario Dawson (Claire) as Captain of a vessel called the Dreadful Wale. From the latter, Pedro Pascal (Oberyn), who’ll be playing the leader of a gang called the Howlers.
They’ll also managed to get Sam Rockwell (Moon, Galaxy Quest), and Jaime Hector (The Wire). Plus, in a slightly surprising move since the original voice actor narrated the E3 ‘reveal’ trailer, a re-cast Outsider. He’ll now be voiced by Robin Lord Taylor (Gotham). Mind you, since the Outsider is a trickster a change of voice isn’t too out of character.
Finally, co-protagonist Emily Kaldwin will now be voiced by Erica Luttrell, who is brilliantly credited as being best known for something called The Magic School Bus. This is another re-cast; possibly in order to differentiate between younger and older Emily.
