Square Enix revealed the cast of the upcoming Hitman: Absolution, which for a little while was a point of controversy as actor David Bateson had previously confirmed that he had been “unceremoniously dropped” as Agent 47 earlier this year. In August, however, Square Enix confirmed that Bateson would be the voice of 47 again, stating that Bateson’s absence made the development team realize what they were missing, and reached out to him to resume voicing the role.
Big names on the casting roster include actress Vivica A. Fox, former porn star Traci Lords, and actor Keith Carradine as new antagonist Blake Dexter.
