Since the Beta Peter Dinklage's voice over work for the guardian's ghost has been the target of ridicule, and it's hard to argue that many parts of the performance felt "phoned in". Many have said this this was on purpose; afterall he is playing a robotic character, why should it should scared, angry, or happy. Regardless, the community and Bungie felt strongly enough that the actor just didn't fit as the Ghost so they have completely replaced him for the upcoming expansion The Taken King and re recorded all of the previous dialogue with the new voice.
Many gamers will be familiar with the new voice of the companion ghost as he has been the lead in other games like Uncharted and Assassins Creed. Nolan North is a legend in the voiceover community and appears to be extremely excited to be joining the project. In an interview with GameInformer had this to say about his role.
It’s interesting, because at one point they find another Ghost that’s been killed,” North says. “A Ghost is not just something that can be turned back on. It has an idea of ending. It understands mortality. It has a vested interest in helping you succeed.
