From what I've seen of his work in BioShock Infinite and Batman (I had no idea he was Two-Face), this adds to my excitement for The Last of Us. Naughty Dog sure knows what they hell they're doing. Great pick for the lead imo.

I was completely convinced that Robin Atkin Downes was actually playing Joel due to his constant collaboration with Naughty Dog. Joel did, after all, sound very similar to Capelli in Resistance 3.

EDIT- I'd say Troy's career will sky-rocket next year judging by the fact that he is playing the leads of two of the biggest games in 2012.

Hi, I'm Troy Baker and you might know me from games such as...

Troy gets around with voice acting in games.
I remember in the PS2 era, JRPGs especially, where we almost hear a Yuri Lowenthal, Steve Blum, and Crispin Freeman all the time, lol.

But this gen seems more of Nolan North.

I like Baker's work as Yuri (Tales of Vesperia) and Kanji (Persona 4), never thought he's spreading with Vincent (Catherine), Booker (Bioshock Infinite), even the controversial re-dubbed James Sunderland (Silent Hill 2).

And now this game.

I don't mind it though.

Make sure he's reprising his role as Kanji again in the extra / added scenes of English version of Persona 4 The Golden

NO WAY that was not Ellen Page... SHE LOOKS JUST LIKE HER!
SolidGear3  +   1521d ago
Ellen had to at least did the damn MoCap.. If not, she'll probably sue for using her likeness without permission.
Zachmo182  +   1521d ago
Is it me or does she look like the chick from Juno?
SolidGear3  +   1521d ago
That's Ellen Paige.. Her name is even Ellie in the damn game yet it's not Ellen Paige.. Plagurism of likeness!!

Baker seems way too young for the character he's providing the voice for...
Why didn't they get someone of age? Someone who fits the bill and actually looks gruff and grizzly or whatever, to sell the character better. I mean look at him - Baker is wispy as hell. The guys practically a French duke! Not to mention ubiquitous as hell. If the industry is so starved of actors right now then maybe I should lend my talents - I can do a killer Crocodile Dundee impersonation. That's gotta come in handy for something.

Joel voice fits him well.
