VGW: As games continue to prove themselves as the future of entertainment, and as Hollywood actors step into larger roles in groundbreaking games, more of their fellows are seeing what a lucrative proposition this is. And why not? Voice work is, undeniably, shorter, easier work than shooting a live-action movie (hours in a sound booth as opposed to months on location), and as major talent your only job is to show up and be, well, you. Take for instance, Mass Effect 2 and Martin Sheen. Truly, I can think of few better actors for such a role. Sheen’s voice holds within it the weight, seriousness and haughty demeanor necessary for the Illusive Man. But therein lies my bone of contention: that’s just Martin Sheen in general. If you watch him in Apocalypse Now, Wallstreet, or The West Wing, he sounds the exact same. He did not need to become the Illusive Man, rather the Illusive Man needed to be Martin Sheen.
