The name's Bond.
It is my great pleasure and honor to announce to the voice acting community that one of your own has been cast as the voice of the British super agent James Bond for an upcoming Bond video game to be released toward the end of 2008.
The character may look like Daniel Craig but his pipes belong to David Houston!
Man, is it ever time to go get a gaming console ;)
Activision recently revealed that there are two James Bond videogame titles currently under development.
Source MI6 Gaming Central says:
It is believed this 'casting' announcement relates to the first game in development by Treyarch, and will be a blend of elements from Casino Royale and the upcoming Bond 22, which is expected to ship alongside in November 2008.
David has had quite the time keeping this cat in the bag but the news got out somehow so he can sit back and enjoy the perks that come with being the voice of Bond.
Mr. Houston, hats off to you!
Raise your proverbial glass in a toast to David Houston by leaving a comment :)
