Broken Age

Jack Black Joins The Voice Cast Of Double Fine's Broken Age

In a new video showcasing the voice actors of Broken Age, Double Fine revealed that Jack Black (among other notable voice actors), is joining the cast as Harm'ny Lightbeard, "The lifter of clouds." The announcement of Black's inclusion was made official during Double Fine's panel at PAX.

Jack Black has worked with Double Fine before, when he played Eddie Riggs in Brütal Legend. His role in Broken Age appears to be more of a cameo, as he punches Tim Schafer in the end of the video below as retaliation for giving him a small role.

The video also reveals that the talents of Jennifer Hale (Mass Effect, Bioshock Infinite, etc.), Richard Horvitz (Raz from Psychonauts), and many other new and returning Double Fine actors will be making an audible appearance in Broken Age.

Broken Age's firm release date is still ambiguous, but Double Fine is hoping to get at least some of the game in players' hands in early 2014.

  • Why am I not surprised. Oh yes, the amazing Brutal Legend. Hoping this one is a great game as well!
  • why's jack black the highlight of this report? it's cool but the fact that raz is returning in a way has me more excited
  • I don't think its that Jack Black won't have a "big part" in Broken but more so compared to his role in Brutal Legend it is "small".

  • Brings back memories of Nacho Libre.

  • Ok people poll time:

    should we be excited that so many of the brutal legend cast are back and working together (which feels like a good sign) or disappointed that is not Brutal Legend.

  • Awesome, love the guy.

    Forever The D!

  • Sweet.  Tim dropped a hint of calling "Mr. Black" in the most recent documentary, and I'm really glad they came through.

  • "I hope I can meet her some day, so I can poke her with my stick!"

  • This is awesome news.

  • Oh how I wish for a Brutal Legend 2.
  • Jack Black is the *** man. Long live the D!!!

  • Man, I love Brutal Legend. I replayed it about a month ago, and it was as good as I remembered. That game is criminally underrated; it's just so damn creative, it's hard not to love. I guess that statement applies to Double Fine in general.
  • WE WANT BRUTAL LEGEND 2

  • They couldn't find something better to spend money on? I'm guessing a Jack Black impersonator would cost 1/4 the price
  • Brutal Legends 2 CONFIRMED.



    John Cygan......the voice of Solidus Snake?
  • Brutal Legend 2. Do it. Polish the RTS elements or lose them completely.

  • The Jack is back in Black and it feels good.

  • Reminds me of Brutal Legend

  • Am i the only one that thinks tim chafer looks like jack blacks long lost half brother
