The prolific voice actor, Michael Rosenbaum, widely recognized as Lex Luthor from the television series Smallville, will be taking on the role of Hayden Tenno, demonstrating his gradual transformation in Dark Sector.
D3Publisher of America (D3PA) announced today that Michael Rosenbaum will voice the protagonist in Dark Sector. The actor has done extensive voicework (including The Flash in Justice League) but is most widely recognized for his role as Lex Luthor on television’s Smallville. Rosenbaum will take on the role of Hayden Tenno, dealing with a transformation that is giving him odd powers and changing him from a ruthless killer into a hero.
“We are thrilled to work with Mr. Rosenbaum on Dark Sector,” said Peter Andrew, vice president of product development, D3PA. “His experience in portraying tormented characters on-screen translates incredibly well to the tortured character of Hayden Tenno in Dark Sector, a true anti-hero who makes no excuses for his actions. The combination of his voice talent and the compelling storyline of Dark Sector will offer a truly immersive experience for players.”
Dark Sector thrusts players into the role of Hayden Tenno, a covert operative sent on a dangerous mission into Lasria – an Eastern European city on the brink of ruin that hides a deadly Cold War secret. Attacked by an unknown enemy, he awakens to find part of his body altered – infected by a bio-weapon that has granted him inhuman abilities. Now, Hayden must learn to evolve along with his powers, to survive and to become a hero.
Dark Sector will be released on PS3 and Xbox 360 in Spring 2008.
