'Saints Row: The Third' (ALL) Unveils Celebrity Voice-overs

by Rainier on July 19, 2011 @ 8:37 p.m. PDT

The Syndicate, a legendary criminal fraternity with pawns in play all over the globe, has turned its eye on the Saints and demands tribute. Refusing to kneel to the Syndicate, you take the fight to a new city, playing out the most outlandish gameplay scenarios ever seen. Strap it on.

Years after taking Stilwater for their own, the Third Street Saints have evolved from street gang to household brand name, with Saints sneakers, Saints energy drinks and Johnny Gat bobblehead dolls all available at a store near you. The Saints are kings of Stilwater, but their celebrity status has not gone unnoticed. The Syndicate, a legendary criminal fraternity with pawns in play all over the globe, has turned its eye on the Saints and demands tribute.

Refusing to kneel to the Syndicate, you take the fight to Steelport, a once-proud metropolis reduced to a struggling city of sin under Syndicate control. Take a tank skydiving, call in a satellite-targeted airstrike on a Mexican wrestling gang, and defend yourself against a highly-trained military force using only a sex toy in the most outlandish gameplay scenarios ever seen, igniting a city-wide war that will set Steelport on fire.

Saints Row: The Third gives you control of the Saints at the height of their power, and you live the life to show for it. Now Steelport is ripe for the taking, and it's up to you to make the city your own. Mold the skyline based on your choices, outfit your crew in classy gangster gear or furry costumes, and make life-or-death decisions that will change Steelport, and the Saints, forever. This is now your city. These are now your rules. Strap it on.

Sasha Grey, Hulk Hogan, and Daniel Dae Kim will headline the all-star cast of Saints Row: The Third, lending their voice talent to key characters in the upcoming open-world action game.

Actress Sasha Grey (The Girlfriend Experience, Entourage) takes on the role of Viola DeWynter, who along with her twin sister Kiki, are the masterminds of the Syndicate’s financial empire. Through Viola and Kiki’s savvy, if not ruthless business sense, the Syndicate’s profits have increased ten-fold in Steelport.

Legendary professional wrestler Hulk Hogan steps into the role of Angel De LaMuerte, a legendary professional wrestler. Betrayed by his former tag-team partner Killbane, now the merciless leader of the Lucadores street gang, Angel teams with the Saints to take over Steelport, and exact his own brand of violent revenge.

Daniel Dae Kim (Saints Row 2, Lost, Hawaii Five-0) reprises his role as Johnny Gat, chief lieutenant of the Third Street Saints and your right-hand in Saints Row: The Third. Now an international celebrity, Gat is the epitome of high-class crime as he licenses his likeness to Saints clothing lines, Saints energy drinks, and even the classiest ride in Steelport, the Johnny Gat-mobile.

Both Sasha Grey and Hulk Hogan will be attending Comic-Con in San Diego this week, signing autographs on Thursday, July 21 at the Saints Row Booth, #5145. Later, Grey and Hogan will attend the Saints Row media event at the FLOAT rooftop bar at the Hard Rock Hotel at 7:00 p.m. in partnership with IGN. The event is by invitation only, and it will be awesome.
