Posted on October 2, 2007, Stephany Turok – Star Studded Line-Up Lend Voices to Newest Installment
Prominent actors will star as the major characters in the new sci-fi FPS shooter Turok, from Touchstone and Propaganda Games. Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood, Hitman), Powers Boothe (Deadwood, SinCity), Ron Perlman (too many to mention), William Fichtner (Prison Break, Invasion) and Donnie Wahlberg (New Kids on the Block) are among the actors who recorded the voices of characters in the game, which will be released on February 5 for the PS3, and Xbox 360.
Set on a dark, mysterious planet in the future, the player will take on the role of Joseph Turok, a former black ops commando, now part of an elite special forces squad, known as Whiskey Company, which is on a mission to take down Roland Kane and his army, the Mendel-Gruman Corporation. As Whiskey Company’s ship approaches the planet inhabited by Mendel-Gruman, the ship is shot down. Turok is stranded on the planet and must locate other crash survivors while confronting Mendel-Gruman soldiers and a variety of dinosaurs and other ravenous creatures.
Gregory Norman Cruz provides the voice of Joseph Turok and the other members of Whiskey Company are: Timothy Olyphant (as Cowboy), Ron Perlman (Slade), Donnie Wahlberg (Shepard), William Fichtner (Logan), and Powers Boothe is the voice of the villain, Roland Kane, an escaped war criminal and Turok’s former mentor.
“The actors who lent their voices to Turok are a testament to both the magnitude of the project and the interest of top-notch talent,” said Josh Holmes, vice president and general manager of Propaganda Games. “The characters in the story are paramount to the experience and we have assembled an outstanding cast to assure high quality performances across the board.”
Some of the actors lending their voices to Turok have a history of playing characters in video games before. Powers Boothe was featured in Area 51, and William Fichtner appeared in GTA: Vice City and San Andreas. Ron Perlman, though, is the seasoned veteran of voice acting for video games, and has appeared in numerous titles; Fallout 3, Justice League Heroes, Gun, Narc, Halo 2, The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, and many more. This is Timothy Olyphant and Donnie Wahlberg’s first foray into the voice acting field (for video games anyway).
