Fable 3 gets a little Oscar glamour as Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley joins the cast.
Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley will appear alongside the Jonathan Ross and John Cleese in the upcoming Lionhead title Fable 3. “I’m a voice in a new videogame shortly – Fable 3,” said Kingsley. “I’m a wonderful wizard character who is the king of Mist Peak.”
“It’s very energizing and good for us actors to realize that [acting] is so diverse now,” he added. “[Games] are as big a jump now as I suppose when cinema was invented, when people went from the stage to the cinema thinking: It’s not really acting, is it? Now, it’s videogames – and it is acting. It’s very demanding.”
Kingsley won his Oscar in 1982 for his performance in Gandhi, and has been nominated for three more since then. Kingsley is also playing the character of Nizam in the Prince of Persia movie and appeared in Uwe Boll’s Bloodrayne.
We try not to talk about that that last one.
