The voice cast for Bethesda’s upcoming Fallout: New Vegas has been confirmed, with Ron Perlman, Matthew Perry and Danny Trejo taking on roles in the upcoming post-apocalyptic role-playing shooter. Bethesda have also confirmed that there will be other, unannounced celebrity cameos throughout the game.
Ron Perlman returns as the game’s narrator, a role he has fulfilled for every Fallout game to date; Matthew Perry plays a smooth-talking two-faced gangster called Benny; and Wayne Newton takes on the role of “Mr. New Vegas”, radio DJ of the Mojave Wasteland.
Three more celebrities are to voice playable companions in the game too: Danny Trejo (Machete, From Dusk Till Dawn) is Raul the Ghoul, a mechanic and former gunslinger; Zach Levi (Alvin and the Chipmunks 2, Stuntmen) is Arcade, a member of the Followers of the Apocalypse who hides a mysterious past; and Felicia Day (The Guild, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog) is Veronica, a sarcastic Brotherhood of Steel scribe.
Some more minor roles include: Kris Kirstofferson as Chief Hanlon, a grizzled solder at the end of his career; Rene Auberjonois as the enigmatic and reclusive Mr. House; Michael Dorn as Marcus, an intelligent super mutant last seen in 1998’s Fallout 2; John Doman as Caesar, the charismatic and powerful dictator at the head of Caesar’s Legion; and William Sadler as Victor, a friendly robot with the personality of an old-fashioned cowboy.
“The Fallout franchise has taken narratives in interactive entertainment to the next level, and we could not be more excited about the all-new celebrity lineup for Fallout: New Vegas,” said Pete Hines, vice president of marketing at Bethesda. “The voice acting provided by these actors helps drive the compelling and immersive story of Fallout and further adds to the overall gameplay experience.”
