Lollipop Chainsaw isn’t the cheap date haters might think it to be, Warner Brothers and Grasshopper Manufacture have just unveiled the voice-cast for this game and it’s a list full of quality voice-actors from a number of popular television works.
First on the list working with filmmaker James Gunn (Super, Slither, Dawn of the Dead) is Tara Strong, voicing central protagonist Juliet Starling. Tara Strong is a renowned voice actor, having worked as dozens of video game and cartoon characters, including one of last year’s most respected titles; Harley Quinn in Batman: Arkham City. Voicing her disembodied boyfriend is Michael Rosenbaum, known for his role as Lex Luthor in Smallville.
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 Cardelleni, 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 (the not-too-much-seen-so-far Merle Dixon) 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 has also appeared in the 2010 film Super and 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.
Lollipop Chainsaw will be available on June 15th 2012 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. For more check out our previous articles on the game here and here.
