Dominic Monaghan (Lost, Lord of the Rings) and Shawn Ashmore (X-Men: Days of Future Past) will feature in Remedy Entertainment’s upcoming Xbox One-exclusive Quantum Break.

Remedy announced the news via its official Twitter account with an image of the two actors in their motion capture suits in a Los Angeles studio.

“I’ve been holding this in for a while!” Ashmore said on his personal Twitter account. “Feels great to finally say I’m apart of @remedygames #QuantumBreak! It’s going to such a great game!”

Last month, Remedy released the 16-minute gameplay trailer below, which offers a good look at Quantum Break’s “time-amplified” gameplay.

Quantum Break is not just a video game, as it’s also going to be paired with a live-action show. The game tells the story of the heroes while the show clues us in on the villains. The Quantum Break show was unaffected by Xbox Entertainment Studios’ recent closure.

Guy Gisborne

Lord of the Rings actor Andy Serkis will play a lead role in upcoming stealth game Volume, from Thomas Was Alone creator Mike Bithell. The Gollum actor will voice a villain named Guy Gisborne.

You might be wondering how Bithell was able to attract Serkis to the project. After all, Serkis–who will appear in next year’s Star Wars: Episode VII–is a top talent in Hollywood. According to Bithell, Serkis was his “dream” actor for the role, and, after some initial struggles, Bithell was able to snag him for the game with help from British casting studio Side.

“We’d been looking for an actor to play Gisborne for a while, and even come close to casting it with different folks,” Bithell told Gamasutra. “After one of those attempts fell through, it was a back to the drawing board moment, and I decided to stop compromising, and go for my dream actor for the role– who I’d get if practicality and reality weren’t an issue.”

“Thank god [Serkis] said yes, and had some time clear in his busy schedule,” Bithell added.

This is not Serkis’ first video game appearance. He played Gollum in the Lord of the Rings licensed games, and had parts in Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and Heavenly Sword.

Volume launches in 2015 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC.
