With Ellen Page slated to star as the main character Jodie Holmes, it’s not surprising that Quantic Dream would nab another major star. According to GamesIndustry International, William Dafoe will be voicing a character in the game as well. Though his role has not been revealed as of yet, it shouldn’t be too long until that information is released.
This won’t be Mr. Dafoe’s first time voice acting for a video game. He reprised his role of Norman Osborn a.k.a. the Green Goblin in the Spider-Man video game released in 2002, and he was also the basis of the villian Nikolai Diavolo in the 2004 James Bond game Everything or Nothing. Of course, just because he was the villain in those games doesn’t mean he’ll be a villain in Beyond, right?
Besides William Dafoe, other notable people who were confirmed to be in this game include David Gasman, who played Paco Mendez in Quantic Dream’s other big hit, Heavy Rain. If you couldn’t recognize him in the E3 trailer, he was the police officer. I’m sure as time goes on we’ll be seeing more big name actors join the list!
