Sony has revealed that LittleBigPlanet 3’s antagonist “Newton” will be voiced by the famous actor Hugh Laurie.
Laurie is largely known for his role as Dr. Gregory House in the medical TV series “House” and he seemed pretty excited to play the villain in the upcoming video game.
I took Newton to be an enthusiast, first off all. He has a dark side but you have to love the character, you have to love the world of it and you have to throw yourself in. It’s actually not nearly as different as I might’ve thought ten years ago, I might have though ‘this is a whole different thing, I don’t know anything about this.’ But actually, storytelling is storytelling whatever form it takes.
Hugh Laurie will be accompanied by Stephen Fry in LittleBigPlanet 3, as Fry has been chosen to be the narrator for the game and it will be his voice that will be guiding you throughout the whole story.
Laurie and Fry would make a pretty good team as they have worked together on “A Bit of Fry & Kaurie and Jeeves and Wooster” in late 80s and 90s.
We will see what impact both of these talented individuals will have on LittleBigPlanet 3, when we get our hands on the game on 18th of November for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
