DRAKE will voice a character named Jace Stratton in the upcoming video game, “Gears of War 3″.
Jace will be one of four playable characters. (–Jace was a main character in the “Gears of War” comic book series. He appeared very briefly in “Gears of War 2″ . . . but in that game, he was voiced by someone else.)
Look for Gears of War 3 to drop Aprill 2011
Rod Fergusson, Epic’s Executive Producer, says, “When we began casting for the role, So Far Gone had just (been) released, and Drake’s combination of heart and grit was just what we were looking for. Rather than search for somebody who sounded like him, it was clear that we should approach him directly… fortunately he turned out to be a huge fan.”
And Drake jumped at the chance to be a part of the blockbuster franchise.
He says, “When Epic came to me with the role, I couldn’t pass it up. They’ve created an amazing character in Jace and I’m looking forward to my tour in Delta Squad.”
