may still lack a publisher
, but what it does have is a sad little king of a sad little hill. High Voltage announced that it has cast Firefly
's Badger, Mark A. Sheppard, as the voice of Mr. Ford, the lead role in the upcoming Wii-exclusive shooter. The Conduit
is the latest line item on the British actor's resume, following work in Battlestar Galactica
and In the Name of the Father
, though to us he'll always be a petty thief with delusions of standing.
The game's credits will include another Sheppard as well. William Morgan Sheppard
, whose voice can be heard in such games as Metal Gear Solid 2
and Escape from Monkey Island
, will voice John Adams, while Olympian man-cake, Kevin Sorbo
, will take on the role of the title's bad guy, Prometheus. There continues to be no word on what company will bring The Conduit
to store shelves in early 2009
, though with High Voltage forking over enough cash to secure Hercules, we have to believe an announcement isn't far off.
