Bethesda gets a stellar cast for “Dishonored”

“Dishonored,” the upcoming steampunk-esque revenge-themed title from Bethesda Softworks and Arkane Studios, will have a cast of voice actors including Oscar winner Susan Sarandon.

Sarandon won her Academy Award for her role in 1995′s “Dead Man Walking.” In the movie, Sarandon played Sister Helen Prejean, an nun who while opposing capital punishment, tries to prevent the execution of a murderer played by Sean Penn. In Dishonored, Sarandon will play Granny Rags, who Bethesda describes as a “an intriguing old blind woman now deranged after years of street life.”

From Bethesda’s announcement:

Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe-winner Brad Dourif takes
on the role of the inventor Piero, creator of the iconic mask worn by
Corvo as well as a wealth of gadgets Corvo can use. Emmy winner and
Hollywood-icon Carrie Fisher can be heard broadcasting government propaganda over loudspeakers throughout the city of Dunwall, where the game is set.

The all-star cast continues with John Slattery (“Mad
Men,” “The Adjustment Bureau”) who takes on the role of Admiral
Havelock, a Loyalist who helps Corvo on his quest, as well as Michael Madsen who brings his videogame voiceover experience to the role of Daud, a mysterious assassin. Chlo Grace Moretz (“Kick-Ass,” “Hugo”) portrays Young Lady Emily, the Empress’ daughter who is kidnapped after her mother’s death while Lena Headey joins the cast as Calista, Emily’s caretaker. In addition to the star-studded voice cast, Composer Daniel Licht (“Dexter”) lends his musical talents to create the game’s original score.
