Activision has pulled out all the stops when it comes to True Crime's voice actors. The cast includes Christopher Walken as FBI field agent Gabriel Whitting as well as Laurence Fishburne as drug kingpin Isaiah “The King” Reed. In addition, the game will include Mariska Hargitay as New York Police Lieutenant Deena Dixon; Mickey Rourke as New York Police Detective Terrence Higgins; Esai Morales as New York Police Organized Crime Unit chief Victor Navarro; Traci Lords as madam Cassandra Hartz; and up and coming actor Avery Waddell as former gangster turned cop Marcus Reed, the game’s main character and Isaiah Reed’s son.
“With a voice talent roster of this caliber, we are bringing drama to videogames on an unprecedented level that is on par with movies and television shows,” said Will Kassoy, vice president of global brand management, Activision Publishing. “True Crime: New York City was developed with the help of two former New York cops who advised us on real-life police scenarios which were then brought to life through the rich characters portrayed by the voiceover talent.”
To say that's an impressive list would be an understatement. The game is due later this fall for the PS2, Xbox, and GameCube.
