Syndicate Stars Rosario Dawson, Brian Cox
EA and Starbreeze Studios are enlisting high-profile actors for the voice cast of first-person shooter Syndicate. Rosario Dawson and Brian Cox will both play major characters in the game.
Dawson (Clerks II, Death Proof) will play Lily Drawl. Like the player, she's an agent employed by the syndicate EuroCorp. However, she's conflicted about her job and sympathizes with the underground resistance to the megacorporation's reign.
"I’m amazed how videogames have become so deep in story, delivering fantastic worlds and memorable characters rivaling big Hollywood films," said Dawson. "I was excited when EA approached me to play Lily Drawl in Syndicate. She’s an interesting and strong female character. How cool is it to play the mastermind who designed the military chip inside the player’s head!"
Cox, who appeared in X-2: X-Men United and The Bourne Supremacy among many others, portrays Jack Denham in the game. Denham is said to be the ruthless EuroCorp executive described as the "power behind the boardroom throne." I'm gonna guess he's a bad guy.
Michael Wincott (Alien: Resurrection, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves) was also confirmed for the voice cast. He plays a seasoned EuroCorp agent. Considering he mostly plays villains in films and video games (he was the Prophet of Truth in Halo 2), it's safe to assume he's not your BFF in this game.
"Syndicate immerses players deep into a dystopian world of unscrupulous corporations and chip augmented enforcers," said Mikael Nermark, CEO of Starbreeze Studios. "These agents are the weapons of this war for market dominance and we needed strong talent to represent these intense characters. We are honored to have worked with the incredible Rosario Dawson, Brian Cox and Michael Wincott to make this world come alive."
Syndicate will be released later this month on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
