Mass Effect 3‘s cast of voice actors is largely the same as Mass Effect 2‘s, with Martin Sheen (the Illusive Man), Mark Meer and Jennifer Hale (Male and Female Commander Shepard), Seth Green (Joker), Tricia Helfer (the Normandy’s A.I. EDI), Yvonne Strahovski (Miranda), Carrie-Anne Moss (Aria T’Loak), Ali Hillis (Dr. Liara T’Soni), Keith David (Captain Anderson), and Lance Henriksen (Admiral Steven Hackett) all reprising their roles in the galactic war to save the galaxy from the Reapers.

Two new faces, um, I mean voices are also joining the cast this time out. In his first-ever video game performance, Freddie Prinze, Jr., rising to fame in the I Know What You Did Last Summer teen horror flicks in the late 1990s and more recently seen in the final season of 24, will be starring in Mass Effect 3 as a marine named James Vega.

Another newcomer to the cast is G4 TV / IGN host Jessica Chobot, who is basically famous for licking a PSP and being the mythical hot geek gamer chick. Appropriately, she’ll be playing as a bosomy news reporter named Diana Allers.

Mass Effect 3 ships in North America on March 6th (March 9th in Europe) for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, with an early playable demo due for digital download release on February 14th.
