Hulk Hogan and Sasha Grey join Saint's Row: The Third’s voice cast

Shares

THQ’s Saint’s Row: The Third is sounding more like a cross between a muscle-bound beefcake and a porn star following news that former wrestler Hulk Hogan and former naked-person-of-note Sasha Grey will be joining the cast of voice actors. Hogan and Grey will be joining recurring cast member Daniel Dae Kim (Lost) and ought to up the ante for the kind of flashy fun the series is known for.

Dae Kim reprises his role as the now world-famous lookalike Johnny Gat, which is weird because, let's be real here, even Daniel Dae Kim isn't world-famous for looking like Daniel Dae Kim. Grey plays Viola DeWynter, a crime magnate characterized as  “savvy, if not ruthless.” She looks a bit like Sasha Grey if you squint. Hogan plays Angel De LaMuerte, a former pro wrestler who, perplexingly, looks nothing like Hulk Hogan despite being basically the exact same person with “also he's a violent criminal” tacked on the end. Do you dig this kind of stunt-casting? If there's any game that deserves a cast of outspoken brawlers and porn stars, surely it's Saint's Row, right?

Both Hulk Hogan and Sasha Grey will be at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego and will be signing autographs on Thursday July 21 at the Saints Row booth (#5145). Expect more news on THQ’s sandbox crime spree as Saints Row: The Third’s November 15 release date draws nearer.

    @corndog501 Sasha Grey has said she is done with the pornographic part of her career.

    Sasha Grey huh? I know of her work lol
  • corndog501 - July 20, 2011 4:30 a.m.

    I'm kinda in the same boat as you last three, also I think Sasha Grey is still an active porn star, so she hasn't hit ex-porn star status.

    @EnigmaSpirit Personally, I can't imagine recognizing Sasha Grey to be a bad thing in any way

    @EnigmaSpirit: Lol, the second part of your post was exactly what I was thinking when I saw her name :P However, it is still gonna be an awesome game, cannot wait to whip some people with a giant purple dildo!

    This game is definitely not going to be getting any awards for acting... is it bad if I recognize who Sasha Grey is?

    Hulk Hogan, leader of a Luchadore gang? Do the developers know what Luchadores are? The complete antithesis of what Hulk Hogan was.

    wow. i cant wait. seems pretty cool if you ask me.
  • FauxFurry - July 20, 2011 2:04 a.m.

    @Doctalen-It's far more likely that she gets her upper body blown off. Now Angel De LaMuerte you can count on getting ample topless scenes from!
  • FauxFurry - July 20, 2011 2 a.m.

    Wrestler,Porn-star, what's the difference? Oh, yeah. A porn star wears more clothing before the director yells "Action!" and the foreplay is the main event for wrestlers. The caliber of their acting is indistinguishable from one another, though, not that it makes either product these actors ply their craft in any less fun for the viewers if it doesn't add to the charm. With a name like Angel De LaMuerte, you just know that he's the guy who got Macho Man his final booking to go wrestle angels and the big boss man in the sky.What a heel.
  • Doctalen - July 20, 2011 1:55 a.m.

    I wonder if Sasha Grey's character will be taking her top off at some point in the game.
  • onetimebuster - July 20, 2011 1:49 a.m.

    Not hogan why i understand the former pornstar but hogan come on.maybe they have a part in the game for a washed up wrestler if they do then im fine with it.
  • samsneeze - July 20, 2011 1:41 a.m.

    Hulk Hogan? HELL YES! Kinda makes me wish we had Savage instead though...
  • SonicX_89 - July 20, 2011 1:36 a.m.

    I never thought much of Hulk Hogan but Henry Gilbert's disdain for him kinda influenced my opinion of him.
