Saints Row 4 features voices of Neil Patrick Harris, Nolan North, Troy Baker, and others
Deep Silver has released a partial vocal cast list for the upcoming, open world title, Saints Row 4, and it's full of names that both gamers and good 'ol regular folks alike will recognize.
Just be forewarned, as some of the characters are identified, so there's potential spoilers. Read on to see who's who in Saints Row 4.
- Nolan North - Easily one of the most prolific voice actors in gaming, North's past credits include Drake of the Uncharted series, Desmond of Assassin's Creed, and countless other games, TV shows, and movies.
- Troy Baker - Another actor with a huge list of credits, Baker most recently voiced BioShock Infinite protagonist Booker DeWitt and Joel in The Last of Us, and is set to voice the Joker in Batman: Arkham Origins.
- Laura Bailey - Having worked on the third game, Bailey continues work on the Saints Row series. She's also worked on Fallout: New Vegas, Halo 4, Resident Evil 6, and alongside Baker as BioShock Infinite's Lady Comstock.
- Robin Atkin Downes - As far as games go, Downes is perhaps most recognized as George Washington in Assassin's Creed III and the associated DLC, as well as Kazuhira Miller from Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, and the upcoming Phantom Pain.
- Diane Michelle - Not as prolific as some of her Saints Row co-stars, fans will know Michelle's pipes as Mira and Dr. Warren from the first Mass Effect.

Saints Row IV sees players who have gone from taking control of the streets to now ruling the enitre country as the Commander in Chief. Instead of common gangsters, players now must fend off an alien invasion with little more than a wide range of presidential super powers. Easily the most realistic premise in gaming.
Saints Row IV will launch in North America on August 20, for PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
