Celebrity lead in the gaming industry, Nolan North has voiced hundreds of characters in all different shapes and sizes. The most popular character has been Nathan Drake from Uncharted and Desmond Miles in Assassins Creed. Obviously his accomplishments don’t stop there. If you check Nolan North on Wikipedia you will find an exceptionally long list of what he’s done.
He’s now moving over into a role in Star Trek 2 thanks to Nathan Drake. J.J. Abrams (creator of Lost, Fringe and Director of the rebooted Star Trek) and his son are huge fans of Uncharted.
“I just worked on Star Trek 2 with J. J. Abrams,” he revealed.
“The reason I did that movie – it’s a very small role – but it’s because he and his son are huge fans of Uncharted. I met him doing some work on Super 8 and he said ‘We’re doing Star Trek, you wanna do it?’ And I said I’d love to.
“He’s a huge fan of gaming and he was telling me how people just don’t understand [the medium] yet, but they’re going to catch up. They don’t understand how amazing this technology is and it doesn’t get the respect it deserves, but if it keeps making the money it makes you’re going to see more and more people converted.
“I mean, Gary Oldman, one of the greatest actors on the planet, did Call of Duty. He wouldn’t have done it 10 years ago. It’s a new age dawning, and I’m just really proud to be part of it.”
Star Trek 2 is set to be out May 2013
Good on you Drake..errr…Nolan.
