Lex Luthor to voice Dark Sector protagonist

Dark SectorSmallville fans might recognize the main character of Digital Extremes’ upcoming third-person action game, Dark Sector, by his voice. D3Publisher issued a press release yesterday, announcing that Lex Luthor actor Michael Rosenbaum will be voicing the virus-infected, cybernetically-enhanced tough guy when the game releases later this year.

From the press release:

Rosenbaum will bring to life the character of Hayden Tenno, a cold-blooded, ruthless killer who awakens after an attack with an infection that has granted him inhuman abilities. Through the storyline and Rosenbaum’s voice over, players will experience Hayden’s transformation into something more than he was, his fight against the powers taking over his body and his evolution as he becomes a hero. Dark Sector is slated to ship to retail stores in North America this spring 2008.

"We are thrilled to work with Mr. Rosenbaum on Dark Sector," said Peter Andrew, vice president of product development, D3PA. "His experience in portraying tormented characters on-screen translates incredibly well to the tortured character of Hayden Tenno in Dark Sector, a true anti-hero who makes no excuses for his actions. The combination of his voice talent and the compelling storyline of Dark Sector will offer a truly immersive experience for players."

I honestly don’t know much about the caliber of Mr. Rosenbaum’s acting, but I’m guessing it’s not too terrible, considering he has a pretty steady job as a real-life actor on a fairly popular TV series. What do you think, GN faithful? Is he a good pick?
