Ben Kingsley to appear in Fable III

He will play a "wonderful wizard". 

Veteran actor Ben Kingsley has signed up to provide a voiceover for Fable III.

"I'm a voice in a new videogame shortly - Fable III," he told CVG. "I'm a wonderful wizard character who is the king of Mist Peak."

According to Kingsley, "It's very energising and good for us actors to realise that [acting] is so diverse now. [Games] are as big a jump now as I suppose when cinema was invented, when people went from the stage to the cinema thinking: It's not really acting, is it? Now, it's videogames - and it is acting. It's very demanding."

Kingsley joins the likes of John Cleese and Jonathan Ross in signing up for Fable III. The game is due out in the autumn - catch up with all the business over on the gamepage.
