Tricia Helfer lends voice to Black Cat in Spider-Man: Web of Shadows

Former model and current Battlestar Galactica actress Tricia Helfer is easy on the eyes, we suppose. We’d go as far as to say that she’s what you kids are calling “hot.” So we guess it’s a shame you’ll only be hearing her voice in the upcoming Spider-Man: Web of Shadows

Helfer will be lending her voice to the game, playing the part of the mischievous Black Cat. To celebrate this huge announcement, Activision Blizzard have thrown together a nice package of new Web of Shadows screenshots, a video of Helfer doing what she does best (voice acting, you perverts), and a big ol’ headshot. Our day is complete.

Celebrity voice talent is good and all, but it hasn’t always worked out for the Spider-Man games. Does anyone remember Tobey Maguire’s and Kirsten Dunst’s stellar performances in the Spider-Man 3 videogame? We’re trying to forget, too.

And what’s up with Helfer starting off that video with “Hey boys”? You know, there might be a few female gamers interested in Web of Shadows (and Helfer) — how about addressing them, eh?
