Ben Kingsley has confirmed that he will be providing his voice for the upcoming Xbox 360 game Fable III. Kingsley (probably best known for starring in the biopic Gandhi) will also be playing the villainous Nizam in the upcoming game movie adaptation Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.
“I’m a voice in a new video game shortly – Fable III. I’m a wonderful wizard character who is the king of Mist Peak, said Kingsley. “It’s very energizing and good for us actors to realize that [acting] is so diverse now. [Games] are as big a jump now as I suppose when cinema was invented, when people went from the stage to the cinema thinking: It’s not really acting, is it Now, it’s video games – and it is acting. It’s very demanding.”
Fellow British actors Jonathan Ross, Stephen Fry and John Cleese will also be lending their voices to Fable III.
