The lights are on
This morning, we shared with you new hands-on impressions of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. WB has also delivered some information about the voice cast, scribe, and composer that will be bringing the project to life.
Troy Baker (The Last of Us, BioShock Infinite) will step into the protagonist’s role once again as Talion. He’s joined by Nolan North (Uncharted, Deadpool), Alastair Duncan (Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance), Laura Bailey (Mass Effect 3, Halo 4), and Liam O’Brien (Final Fantasy XIII-2, Titanfall).
The soundtrack is being composed by Gary Schyman, who scored all three BioShock titles, the Destroy all Humans games, and more. The original story, which takes place between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, is being written by Red Dead Redemption scribe Christian Cantamessa.

Well that's quite the cast they have. This game just keeps looking better and better.
Nothing but talent here. The story must be good if written by one of the guys who wrote RDR.
Damn, that's a hell of a cast they have.
I'm so excited for this game, but if it does end up failing, it definitely won't be because of the voice acting. I prefer Troy over Nolan, but to see them both in the same game is gonna be amazing.
I love Nolan North. Now all they need is Jennifer Hale.
Wow, that's quite the cast!
Sounds like a good crew to me.
OH CRAP!!! SARAH!!!
Video game all stars?
Impressive cast. Won't have to worry about the voice acting in this one. This game keeps sounding better and better.
Oh corse they are in it, they are the voices of everything. The other actors are just Troy and North under different names so they can get multiple pay checks.
I'm burnt out on them, especially Nolan since he barely changes.
Same reused voice actors once again, and again, and again. They are good and all, but would be nice to give some other actors a chance, god forbid to get some new talent, and voices in these games. Tired of instantly being able to pick out which actor does what since they sound the same in almost every game they do.
Troy Baker AND Nolan North, yes please!! What a sick trailer this games looks so next-gen it's awesome. Now............Do I play Inquisition or Mordor first? I'm buying both and Alien all at the same time just because the thought of not having each of them bothers my soul.
