If you were excited about Dark Sector before, brace yourself. D3 Publisher has announced that Hollywood actor Michael Rosenbaum will be lending his voice to the game’s lead character, Hayden Tenno. Rosenbaum is best known for his work as Lex Luthor on the CW’s Smallville.
“We are thrilled to work with Mr. Rosenbaum on Dark Sector,” said D3’s vice president of product development, Peter Andrews. “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.”
Rosenbaum is no stranger to voice acting — he’s lent his voice to a number of cartoons, including Teen Titans. But you guys might also recognize his voice from Sega’s Yakuza, where he voices the heartless mafia scum, Nishiki. In other Rosenbaum/videogame related “news,” the actor also owns a Galaga arcade cabinet, one of his first purchases when he first starting bringing in money.
Dark Sector should (finally) be out this spring.
