The stars behind gaming's voices

Games: Area 51 and XIII (PS2, Xbox, Gamecube)
Star: David Duchovny as Etahn Cole/XIII
Best known for: Playing agent Fox Mulder in The X-Files

We all know him as Fox Mulder from the X-Files, of course, but he's done some games work too. His performance in Area 51 was a little too understated for our liking (a little enthusiasm, David - please), but still, his voice is familiar to any sci-fi fan... which probably accounts for quite a large portion of Area 51's audience demographic anyway.

And, we have to admit, we had forgotten that he was in the decent cel-shaded first-person shooter XIII as XIII himself. It's as if the Men in Black erased our memories. Spooky indeed.
