February 10, 2004
Three Hollywood heavy hitters have lent their talents to the much
anticipated stealth-action game Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell® Pandora
By: Jared Black
Joining the game:
· Dennis Haysbert (Irving Lambert)-Widely recognized from his role
as President David Palmer in the hit Fox television series, "24",
Dennis Haysbert is an established screen actor who has appeared in
numerous films including Far from Heaven, Major League and Heat.
Haysbert joins the cast as Sam Fisher's supervisor and colleague,
Irving Lambert, who provides direction to the lone agent from Third
Echelon headquarters deep within the NSA.
· Michael Ironside (Sam Fisher)-Famed character actor Michael
Ironside reprises his role as Sam Fisher in this sequel to the
original best selling video game, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell®.
Ironside's gravelly voice helps bring Fisher's tough-as-nails
character to life. Fans know Ironside from his roles in movies such
as Top Gun, Starship Troopers and Total Recall.
· Lalo Shifrin (Composer, Original Theme)-Respected composer Lalo
Shifrin has more than 184 film credits under his belt, and is most
widely recognized as the creator of the Mission Impossible theme
song. His talent for creating tension and excitement through music
is evident in the theme he composed for the game.
This roster of entertainment industry icons is fitting for a game
that is already making Hollywood history. In January, Tom Clancy's
Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow became the first video game to
premiere in or around a film festival, when it debuted at a VIP
event coinciding with the Sundance Film Festival. Considered to be
one of the most anticipated games of 2004, the game was recently
featured in MTV's "Ultimate Video Game Countdown."
"The tense realism, compelling storyline and attention to detail
that you expect from Tom Clancy are evident in Tom Clancy's Splinter
Cell Pandora Tomorrow," says actor Dennis Haysbert, a longtime fan
of Tom Clancy's work. "Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow
unfolds just like a movie: It's a conspiracy-ridden storyline that
explores the shadowy world of international espionage. With its
stunning visuals and strong use of light and shadows it looks like a
movie too. I can't wait to play it with my son!"
