The cast of Bethesda's Dishonored has been announced, and it's full of big names. Susan Sarandon, Brad Dourif, Carrie Fisher, John Slattery, Michael Madsen, and Lena Headey are all lending their voices to the action game.
Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon is making her videogame debut. She will play Granny Rags – a former aristrocrat who's fallen on hard times and now begs in the street. Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe-winner Brad Dourif takes on the role of the inventor Piero, creator of the mask worn by Corvo as well as a wealth of gadgets Corvo can use. Emmy winner Carrie Fisher can be heard broadcasting government propaganda over loudspeakers throughout the city of Dunwall, where the game is set.
