We don’t know about you, but whenever we get delivered news regarding the upcoming title Lollipop Chainsaw, this song immediately pops into our head and we can’t get it out for quite a while after. Just us? Okay then!
Back to the actual news, Warner Bros and Grasshopper Manufacture have today revealed the impressive voice talent behind the characters that will feature in Lollipop Chainsaw’s “wonderfully wicked world of gumdrops and gore”.
Tara Strong, the voice behind many video game and cartoon characters (including Harley Quinn in Batman: Arkham City), stars as the game’s protagonist, Juliet Starling. Michael Rosenbaum, best known for his role as Lex Luthor in Smallville, voices the disembodied head of her boyfriend Nick.
The rest of the cast is no less impressive with names appearing from all over the film and television industry. Cordelia is voiced by Linda Cardelleni, best known as Lindsay Weir from the cult classic Freaks and Geeks. Shawnee Smith, one of the stars in the first four Saw films, and Michael Rooker, known for Walking Dead and Slither, also appear in the game. Experienced TV and film actor Gregg Henry (24, United 93, Black Dahlia) takes on the role of Juliet’s father.
Swan, Romero High School’s resident goth, will be played by James’ brother Sean Gunn, who has also appeared in the 2010 film Super and Gilmore Girls. Finally, rounding the cast off nicely, the game will feature the vocal talents of rocker Jimmy Urine from the band Mindless Self Indulgence. On top of contributing to the game’s soundtrack, Mr Urine will lend his voice to the deranged Zed.
Check out the trailer featuring the vocal talent below, and be sure to let us know what you think.
Lollipop Chainsaw is set to be released on June 15th for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
