Hitman: Absolution Goes Hollywood


IO Interactive is determined to make Hitman: Absolution a cinematic game, (and judging from the cutscenes I saw when I demoed it at NYCC, they're succeeding nicely), so to that end, they've assembled a Hollywood cast for it. But not only did the actors and actresses perform the voicework, but they were also motion-captured so it's a full performance from H-to-T (as Tyra would say). Here's the main stars:

Agent 47: David Bateson (though William Mapother did the motion capture)
Diana Burnwood: Marsha Thomason
Benjamin Travis: Powers Boothe
Birdie: Steven Bauer
Blake Dexter: Keith Carradine
Sheriff Clive Skurky: Jon Gries
Layla Stockton: Traci Lords
Sanchez: Issac Singleton
LaSandra Dixon: Vivica A. Fox
Wade: Larry Cedar
Cosmo Faulkner: Jonathan Adams
Jade: Shannyn Sossamon
Victoria: Isabelle Fuhrman

It think it's interesting how now they can actually motion capture the actors to truly replicate them in the game. Although some of the more recognizable actors in L.A. Noire were a bit distracting. Still, they didn't say whether or not their likenesses would be used as well (but David Bateson already has the hot bald killer look going on). Hitman: Absolution is due out on November 20 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
