With just over a month until its launch, BioWare is offering up a few behind-the-scenes details about the cast they’ve reunited for Commander Shepard’s big finale. It seems the whole crew is back together for one last adventure aboard the Normandy…with one notable exception.
The star-studded cast for Mass Effect 3 includes the return of Golden Globe winner Sheen (“The Departed”, “Apocalypse Now”), Seth Green (“Robot Chicken”, “Family Guy”) as Joker, Tricia Helfer (“Battlestar Galactica”) as the Normandy’s A.I. EDI, Yvonne Strahovski (“Chuck”) as Miranda, and Carrie-Anne Moss (“The Matrix”) as Aria T’Loak. Other returning fan favorites include [Mark] Meer and [Jennifer] Hale as Male and Female Shepard, Ali Hillis as Dr. Liara T’Soni, Keith David (“Platoon”) as Captain Anderson and Lance Henriksen (“Aliens”) as Admiral Steven Hackett. [Freddie] Prinze, Jr. (“24”) and Jessica Chobot (G4 TV) as news reporter Diana Allers, are the newcomers to the series.
Absent from this press release is any indication of who will be taking on the role of singing Salarian scientist Mordin Solus. Though the popular Mass Effect 2 crew member has been prominently featured in pre-release trailers for the upcoming finale, the decision of who will replace Michael Beattie remains under wraps.
Mass Effect 3 is scheduled for release on March 6th, 2012. Enjoy the video!
