When you play Saints Row: The Third later this year you'll be hearing the voices of big stars.  The franchise has always excelled at scoring top-flight voice talent, and now we know some of the new (and not so new) voices we'll hear in Saints Row: The Third.  THQ has announced three actors today: "Actress" Sasha Grey, Legendary pro-wrestling star Hulk Hogan, and Daniel Dae Kim.  

Daniel Dae Kim (Lost, Hawaii Five-0) will be reprising his role of Saints lieutenant, Johnny Gat, Sasha Grey (The Girlfriend Experience, Entourage) will play the role of Syndicate mastermind, Viola DeWynter, and Hulk Hogan will voice Angel De LaMuerte, a legendary professional wrestler, and leader of the Lucadores street gang.  Look down for screens.

Saints Row: The Third comes out this fall.



THQ UNVEILS CELEBRITY TALENT IN SAINTS ROW: THE THIRD
Sasha Grey, Hulk Hogan and Daniel Dae Kim headline all-star cast

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, THQ and Volition, Inc. announced today.

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.
