Earlier today Bethesda and Zenimax announced a number of top flight voice actors for their upcoming MMO Elder Scrolls Online.
While it might be a stretch to refer to all of them as A list the majority of them are well respected actors with a number of accolades to their credit.
- John Cleese (Monty Python Fame) plays Sir Cadwell, the cheerful and endearingly mad lost soul who is not afraid of anyone, even a Daedric Prince.
- Bill Nighy (Love Actually, Pirates of the Caribbean) portrays High King Emeric, a merchant prince whose luck and determination won him the throne.
- Kate Beckinsale (Underworld) takes on the role of Queen Ayrenn, the leader of the Aldmeri Dominion and Queen of the High Elves who is far more comfortable with a blade than her crown.
