While the game itself remains a cipher, wrapped in an enigma, and smothered in secret sauce (that one goes out to all my fellow NewsRadio fans), Tales from the Borderlands is putting together a strong cast of voice actors to drive home its storyline set after the events of Borderlands 2.

Telltale has confirmed that the episodic adventure based on Gearbox’s shoot ‘n loot first-person RPG shooter series will star Chris Hardwick (Nerdist), Sam Witwer (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Battlestar Galactica), Nolan North (pretty much every game you can think of, but mainly known for Nathan Drake in Uncharted), Patrick Warburton (The Tick, Seinfeld, NewsRadio), and other returning actors from the original Borderlands cast, including Dameon Clarke as Handsome Jack.

Hardwick and Witwer will play the roles of Vaughn and Rhys, best buds who work for the Hyperion Corporation and journey to Pandora to find a secret vault key. The other actors will be voicing other characters, we just don’t know who they are. No word yet on who will be voicing the game’s two playable protagonists, Fiona and Rhys.

Hopefully Telltale and Gearbox will provide more specifics about Tales from the Borderlands next week at E3. If the first episode really is going to hit this summer, it’s about damn time for some actual gameplay footage to be shown.
