FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - 03-24-10 - dSonic, the award-winning game audio production company behind the voice-overs for "Prison Break: The Conspiracy" shared an exclusive video that features Robert Knepper today: http://www.youtube.com/user/dSonicInc#p/u/0/WcsJWnouka8
Knepper reprised his role as "T-Bag" for the upcoming title based on the hit TV series, Prison Break. The game, developed by Zootfly, will be published by Deep Silver.
Knepper, who now has a starring role in the TV show "Heroes", was one of seven of the Prison Break cast members to trade location shooting for the recording studio. Stars Wentworth Miller ("Scofield"), Dominic Purcell ("Burrows"), Peter Stormare ("Abruzzi"), Wade Williams ("Bellick"), Rockmond Dunbar ("C-Note") and Amaury Nolasco ("Sucre") all lent their voices to "Prison Break: The Conspiracy", which will be released in the U.S. on March 30th.
dSonic co-founder, Simon Amarasingham explained what it was like directing the stars, "Prison Break: The Conspiracy was our first real taste of Hollywood and it was lots of the fun. The celebrities were all super nice and really enjoyed getting back into their characters from the show. They were excited to see previews of the game and I remember Dominic Purcell in particular having a really huge smile on his face when he saw his character in the game for the first time."
Amarasingham added, "It was invaluable having Gregor Bajt, Zootfly's art director, right there in the studio with me because he just knew the game inside out and was able to provide a lot of context for the actors when they were recording their lines. It was fun to be able to point to Gregor when the stars were commenting on how the game was looking as well!"
