Celebrity voice cast announced

BioWare and Electronic Arts have announced their celebrity voice cast for the highly anticipated Mass Effect 2. Headlining the group will be Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning actor Martin Sheen ("The West Wing").

The rest of the cast includes Seth Green ("Robot Chicken"), 2009 Emmy Award-winner Shohreh Aghdashloo ("House of Saddam"), Adam Baldwin ("Chuck", "Firefly"), Yvonne Strahovski ("Chuck"), Keith David ("Crash"), Michael Dorn ("Star Trek: Deep Space Nine") Tricia Helfer ("Battlestar Galactica"), Michael Hogan ("Battlestar Galactica") and Carrie-Anne Moss ("The Matrix").

"Emotionally engaging narrative is a key design pillar for BioWare, and the top-notch voice talent in Mass Effect 2 helps drive this goal," said BioWare co-founder Dr. Ray Muzyka. "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!"

Sheen will play the role of the mysterious Illusive Man who leads Cerberus, a secretive paramilitary organization dedicated to protecting human interests in the galaxy. The group was a centerpiece in the Mass Effect novel and will have a larger role in Mass Effect 2.

Yvonne Strahovski plays Miranda Lawson, a deadly Cerberus operative who has been genetically engineered for superior mental and physical traits. Seth Green and Keith David will both be reprising their roles as Joker and Admiral David Anderson respectively. The rest of the cast rounds out with Tricia Helfer as EDI, the voice of the new Normandy; Carrie-Ann Moss as Aria T’Loak, the crime lord who rules the planet Omega; Shohreh Aghdashloo as Admiral Shala’Raan vas Tonbay; Michael Hogan as Captain Bailey; Adam Baldwin as Kal ‘Reegar; and Michael Dorn as Gatatog Uvenk.

Mass Effect 2 releases on both the PC and Xbox 360 on January 26 in North America and January 29 in Europe.
