Robert Clotworthy confirms he returns as Jim Raynor in StarCraft 2
Joystiq recently interviewed Chris Sigaty about StarCraft II single player. This interview revealed that the former voice actor behind Jim Raynor had returned, despise their decision to change its direction with a fresh voice actor, one that met Chris Metzen’s original plan. For those who think to have read wrong, I contacted Robert Clotworthy, who I interviewed twice in the past two years. This is what he said this afternoon:
Robert: Yes, I can confirm that I’m working with Blizzard Entertainment to reprise my role as the voice of Jim Raynor in StarCraft II. I’m looking forward to the release of the game and I hope that StarCraft players will enjoy going into battle with Jim and following his adventures throughout the galaxy.
Hurray for Robert, and hurray for the fans. Jim Raynor is back ! Now we would be in bliss if Glynnis Talken returns as Kerrigan the Queen of Blades. Hugs to Glynnis, if she is reading.
Update: SCLegacy contacted Glynnis Talken. At this point she has not been hired to reprise Kerrigan.
