Billy Bob Thornton, Dennis Hopper to Headline Deadly Creatures Voice Cast


Here’s a bit of an odd story to start the week off with. Award-winning Hollywood actors Billy Bob Thornton and Dennis Hopper have signed on with THQ to voice characters in the upcoming Wii exclusive Deadly Creatures, which is currently due out in February. What’s odd is that the two actors will voice human characters in the game, not the game’s starring scorpion and tarantula. Sure, talking scorpions and tarantulas would’ve been weird, but nothing’s too far fetched for a videogame. I didn’t even realize Deadly Creatures was going to have human characters in it. If they’re voiced by two noteworthy actors like Thornton and Hopper there definitely has to be a deeper story going on than what’s been shown thus far. Interesting, very interesting…

“What surprised me about Deadly Creatures is how it looks…like watching a movie,” said Billy Bob Thornton. “The scorpion and tarantula are like two actors meeting up for a gun fight.”

“Gamers are really going to love Deadly Creatures,” added Dennis Hopper.

“Billy Bob Thornton and Dennis Hopper’s involvement as the voice talent for the human characters in Deadly Creatures is a testament to the game’s high level of quality,” said Nick Wlodyka, General Manager, Rainbow Studios. “The AAA talent helps bring this cinematic storyline of greed and betrayal to life in a one-of–a-kind action-thriller exclusively on Wii.”
