Jack Black Not Doing Voiceovers

Posted Wed, May 07, 2008 by RadarX

Celebrity voice over talent for videogames isn't a new thing whether it's Grace Park in Command and Conqueror 3 or Heather Graham in EverQuest 2. Will Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning find such talent for their game? A rumor was apparently circulating Jack Black would be doing such work but fortunately Massively contacted EA to dispel this meaningful misnomer.

All of these well-known actors, and more, were rumored to be playing big roles in EA Mythic's in-development title. Discussion of these actors has been swirling through WAR forums for a few weeks, and was repeated on a popular Warhammer-related podcast. Certainly, with EA backing the game's production, it doesn't seem out of the question that such A-list celebrities could be corralled for contributions. Most of them have already done voice work in games before, making it all the more likely. For confirmation Massively contacted a press representative that works with the company. We recieved this humorous response in return: "We looked into this voiceover talent list, and it is not true. Sorry to disappoint! WAR will definitely have high-quality voiceovers, but no Jack Black."
