Tim Curry, star of Red Alert 3 (Update 2, Full Cast List)

by

It’s the truth, if news coming out of the Leipzig Games Convention is to be believed. Kotaku reports that casting details for the new game were revealed at an EA press conference:

The leaders of the three factions — Allies, Empire of the Rising Sun and the Soviet Union — will be played by JK Simmons, George Takei and Tim Curry, respectively.

Which, to be frank, is all kinds of awesome. The cutscenes of the Command & Conquer series have always been a cheesy, B-movie-style highlight of the games, and casting an experienced scenery-chewer like Curry makes perfect sense. Oh, and EA are upping the hot chick quotient too, with the new inclusion of Jenny McCarthy as Tanya.

What’s more, Kotaku hints that Peter Stormare will at least be appearing in a cinematic trailer for the game. Peter-bloody-Stormare!

UPDATE: CVG have got even more details and a full cast list, bless ’em. Here it is:

  • Gemma Atkinson (Hollyoaks)
  • Tim Curry (Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Hunt for Red October)
  • Andrew Divoff (LOST)
  • Kelly Hu (X2, The Scorpion King)
  • Jenny McCarthy (Scream 3, former Playboy Playmate of the Year)
  • Ivana Milicevic (Casino Royale)
  • Jonathan Pryce (Pirates of the Caribbean)
  • J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man, Juno)
  • Autumn Reeser (The OC)
  • Peter Stormare (Prison Break, Armageddon)
  • George Takei (Star Trek, Heroes)
  • Randy “The Natural” Couture (former UFC Heavyweight champion)
  • Gina “Conviction” Carano (Undefeated Elite XC fighter, American Gladiators)

UPDATE 2: The hi-def trailer is now online here.
