The lights are on
Bethesda has announced the voice cast for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and it includes some pretty impressive talent.
Distinguished actors, actresses, and Academy Award nominees such as Max Von Sydow (The Exorcist), Christopher Plummer (The Insider), and Joan Allen (The Contender) slum it alongside some actors who will likely remain regulars on the sci-fi convention circuit (if they're lucky) like: Michael Hogan (Battlestar Galactica), Claudia Christian (Babylon 5), Vladimir Kulich (Smoking Aces). Wonder Woman Lynda Carter also appears in the game as one of the Nord heroes.
All told the game includes over 70 actors with more than 60,000 lines of dialog.

I'm impressed that they have such high profile actors for voice work!
I'm surprised that Seth MacFarlane didn't get in here somehow. Or Charlie Sheen, at the very least. Seems logical that he would be a Ka Po'Tun...
Can't wait to hear more of Max Von Sydow, I love him in the trailer!!
Wow, I have to respect their ability to obtain these actors for these roles. It wasn't enough that Sean Bean (Ned Stark) and Patrick Stewart (Jean-Luc Picard) voiced the surviving Tamriel family of the kingdom while Terence Stamp had one of the major protagonists voiced, or Liam Neeson (Qui-Gon Jinn), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Malcolm McDowell (Alex of A Clockwork Orange), or even Odette Yustman/Annable (a very gorgeous woman) for Fallout 3 to its glory...but it's good to know that Bethesda's track record for getting high quality voice acting is not slowing down.
BTW, Lynda Carter was in Oblivion as well. Good to know she gets a more major role in this one.
ah strange brew. one of my favorite childhood comedies.
I already knew about most of those but ti's always nice seeing Skyrim will have a lot more voice actors, and hopefully better voice acting in general :)
awesome lineup. hard to believe but skyrim keeps getting better with every bit of info they leak. ;)
