CSI: NY Stars Star in Video Game Adaptation


Ubisoft’s CSI: NY crime-solving PC game comes out next week, and fans of the TV series fretting over whether or not the actors from the show would star in the game need worry no more. The entire CSI: NY leading cast did in fact lend their voices and likenesses to the game, Ubisoft has announced today. That means you can expect to see and hear Gary Sinise, Melina Kanakaredes, Carmine Giovinazzo, Eddie Cahill, Hill Harper, Anna Belknap, Robert Joy and A.J. Buckley virtually reprising their respective roles come November 18th.

“In creating CSI: NY – The Game, it was vital for us to remain true to the television show as much as possible,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Ubisoft. “We are delighted to have all of the show’s leading actors in the video game to further solidify the game’s faithfulness to the television series.”

Hit the jump for four behind-the-scenes interview videos with actors Gary Sinise, Melina Kanakaredes, Carmine Giovinazzo and Eddie Cahill as they share their experiences working on the game and a gallery of screenshots showing the entire cast depicted in their graphic novel art style likenesses.
