    According to the details revealed, Skyrim will feature an ensemble cast of Academy Award nominees, including Christopher Plummer ("The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo", "The Insider"), Max Von Sydow ("The Exorcist," "Minority Report"), and Joan Allen ("The Contender," "The Bourne Ultimatum").

    Christopher Plummer, a two-time Emmy Award winner, two-time Tony Award winner and Academy Award nominee, takes on the role of Arngeir, a powerful Greybeard elder. An order of philosopher monks who are masters of the Way of the Voice, the Greybeards live in silent isolation atop Skyrim’s largest mountain.

    Academy Award nominee, Max Von Sydow, stars as Esbern, a chronicler and agent of the Blades who has survived in hiding. Long obsessed with the foretold return of the dragon Alduin, the World Eater, Esbern will teach you how to confront this epic evil.

    Tony Award winner and three-time Academy Award nominee, Joan Allen, will be making her videogame debut as Delphine, one of the last remaining members of the Blades – an ancient warrior society once sworn to protect the Emperor. Like you, Delphine is trying to unravel the mystery of the dragons’ return.

    In addition, iconic actress and singer, Lynda Carter (“Wonder Woman”), voices Gormlaith Golden-Hilt, one of the Nord heroes who overthrew the dragons in ancient times.

    "It’s been incredible to have all these actors together," said Skyrim director Todd Howard, Game Director. "When you start a project, you always make your wish-list of actors, and to actually hear them in the game, it’s amazing. We can’t wait for everyone to experience it."

    Skyrim's cast also includes

    Michael Hogan ("Battlestar Galactica"), who plays Imperial General Tullius, in charge of crushing the Stormcloak rebellion.

    Vladimir Kulich ("The 13th Warrior," "Smoking Aces") portrays Hogan’s nemesis Ulfric Stormcloak, Jarl of Windhelm and charismatic leader of the Stormcloaks, who aims to make Skyrim independent of the Empire.

    Claudia Christian ("Babylon 5") joins the cast as Legate Rikke, General Tullius’s chief lieutenant, a loyal Imperial officer as well as a Nord who firmly believes Skyrim must remain part of the Empire.

    Diane Louise Salinger ("Carnivale"), Renee Victor ("Weeds"), and Saturday Night Live-alum George Coe ("Transformers: Dark of the Moon") round out the star-studded cast of more than 70 different voice actors delivering over 60,000 lines of dialogue.

  • Todd explains merits and demerits of developing Skyrim for Xbox 360

    In the latest issue of Edge Magazine, Skyrim Game Director Todd Howard details the merits and demerits of working on console.

    Skyrim screen

    Todd explained that Skyrim development team found it a lot easier and comfortable developing Skyrim for Xbox 360, and also claimed that the console has many working advantages as compared to PC.

    "We are very comfortable on 360," Todd said. "Yes, it will look better on PC. The PC has moved on a lot. With the kinds of things we do where we are streaming a lot, even your average hard drive on your average PC these days is crazy fast at ripping data.

    "The negative on PC is that there are still a lot of layers of API before you can look at the hardware. So we might be able to get the data faster on PC, but what we do with that data is still easier on 360 and PS3 where we can look directly at the memory registers and do what we want.

    "This is our third go around on these systems, so we are a lot more comfortable than we used to be."

    At present Bethesda is so confident about console version of Skyrim that they are opting to show Xbox 360 version of the game at trade shows, claiming that it's "much easier" to demo.
