Sir Ben Kingsley Goes From Prince Of Persia To Fable III

Sir Ben Kingsley, who won an Academy Award for his portrayal of Gandhi in the 1982 film of the same name, will soon be playing a role a little less historical, landing a part in Lionhead's upcoming Fable III.

Kingsley - who many gamers are soon to be re-acquainted with thanks to his appearance in the Prince of Persia movie - continues a fine tradition of the Fable series, ignoring more typical American voice actors in favour of quality British talent.

Like John Cleese, for example, who will also be in game, playing...your butler. John Cleese and a guy who's won an Academy Award for best actor? Beats hiring Nolan North!
