The folks over at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have announced the cast for their upcoming title Lollipop Chainsaw. We’re already super excited to get our hands on the game, and the awesome staff that is being directed by filmmaker James Gunn has us more excited than ever to sit down and play this sucker.
From the Official Press Release
Tara Strong, the renowned voice behind dozens of video game and cartoon characters, including Harley Quinn in last year’s Batman: Arkham City, stars as the game’s central protagonist, Juliet Starling. Michael Rosenbaum, known for his role as Lex Luthor in “Smallville”, voices the disembodied head of her boyfriend, Nick.
Outside of the two leads, the rest of the cast is no less impressive with names appearing from all over the film and television industry. Checking in to bring some verve to Cordelia is Linda Cardellini, known best as Lindsay Weir from the cult classic “Freaks and Geeks”. Shawnee Smith, one of the stars of the first four Saw films, and Michael Rooker, of “The Walking Dead” and Slither, also appear in the game. Veteran TV and film actor Gregg Henry (“24″, United 93, Black Dahlia) takes on the role of Juliet’s father and brings all the flair one would assume given his Elvis-inspired pompadour and roots as one of the greatest zombie hunters ever.
Swan, Romero High School’s resident Goth, will be played by James’ brother, Sean Gunn, who also appeared in the 2010 film Super and “The Gilmore Girls”. The final piece to this puzzle is the impressive set of lungs on rocker Jimmy Urine from the band Mindless Self Indulgence. On top of contributing to the game’s soundtrack, Jimmy lends his voice talent to the deranged Zed.
Available on June 15th, Lollipop Chainsaw is the ‘un-deadly’ story of sweet but killer zombie hunter Juliet Starling and her quest to uncover the root of a colossal zombie outbreak. With her wickedly awesome chainsaw in hand, Juliet slices, dices and splits her way through hordes of the undead but soon realizes the horde is only the opening act to a festival of zombie rock lords determined to kill the chainsaw-wielding cheerleader. The game will be available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
