It's never very nice when they change actors. Like it films. You want the same actor playing the same character each time!

True, but its as with most changes: it usually takes a little getting used to.

The thing is, Jimmy's voice is so specifically charismatic. I just would hate for it to be ditched.

Where these actors in the original Starcraft or only in the new Starcraft 2 (i.e. the released videos, which I haven't seen much of)?

Leord3658d ago

These two were the actors from the game. Glynis Talken did play Kerrigan in the cinematics we have seen, but some random guy played Raynor. Now they have scrapped both the old ones and the new ones, meaning we might not hear Kerrigan as we remember her, OR Jimmy boy.

WTF it wont be starcraft with out them.

Gut feeling says no: don't try to fix something thats not broken. But who is to say the new blood (if there is going to be any for these 2 roles) isn't able to surpass the originals?

Ye its never good when original actors get changed and it just proves the fans weren't too happy about it.
