The first solid details for Agent 47's next engagement have spilled onto the internet today, revealing Hitman: Absolution's villain Blake Dexter, his celebrity voice and confirmation of the return of 47's handler, Diana Burnwood.
Actor Keith Carradine will assume the role of Dexter and British actress Marsha Thomason will take over the role of Diana Burnwood from Vivienne McKee who provided her voice in the previous Hitman games. "Diana is 47′s only true human contact," Thomason told The Hollywood Reporter. "They’ve known each other an extremely long time, and in the Hitman world, she is what Q is to James Bond. So she sets the assignments, tells him where to go and who to kill."
"The character I play in Hitman: Absolution is as multidimensional as any well-imagined character should be," Keith Carradine said of 47's nemesis, Blake Dexter. "The vividness of the world entered by the gamer hinges on detail. To fully engage the attention of the player requires nothing less than the most completely realised universe of geography and personality."
Apparently, there is a host of other Hollywood stars set to lend their larynxes to Hitman: Absolution's cast, with IO Interactive enlisting more than a dozen noted actors for the game. The developer has captured a number of “complex scenes” with up to seven actors on set at one time, for inclusion in the game, hinting at some pretty dramatic scenes in store.
"We had actors like Marsha and Keith come in and do full-body acting with facial and voice being captured simultaneously in scenes," said the game's Director, Tore Blystad. "Some of these scenes were very complex with all kinds of props and interactions amongst the actors."
Hitman: Absolution is shining up its dual Silver Baller pistols for a 2012 release.
