The Evil Within's Cast Includes Freddy!
Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami is pulling no punches with his anticipated new survival/horror project.
He knows the importance of stellar voice acting these days, especially for a game that will thrive on its atmosphere. That's why the cast for The Evil Within is pretty darn impressive.
Developer Tango Gameworks has recruited actors from the legendary "Nightmare on Elm Street" films and TV shows like "Dexter" and "Hell on Wheels." Most notably, actor Jackie Earle Haley, who played the iconic Freddy Krueger in the "Elm Street" movies; he'll be voicing the main antagonist, Ruvik. Here's some solid talent:
- Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen, A Nightmare on Elm Street) - Main antagonist Ruvik
- Anson Mount (Hell on Wheels) - Protagonist Sebastian Castellanos
- Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter) - Sebastian's junior detective partner, Juli Kidman
The latter is important because in the game's first expansion, players will assume the role of Juli Kidman. This DLC will be part of the $20 DLC Pass, if you're wondering. Said Mikami:
"One of the most crucial elements to any successful survival horror game is the setting and sound, which includes the depth and authenticity of the voice acting. We brought together a great cast of experienced actors to help ensure that players really believe our characters' emotions and the tension they feel in every scene."
The Evil Within releases on October 14 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
