SEGA signs Bishop for Aliens vs Predator

Henriksen: not bad for a human.

SEGA has persuaded renowned actor Lance Henriksen to appear in Aliens vs Predator, due out this February.

You'll know him better as Bishop, of course - the android of Aliens.

Henriksen will reprise his AVP: Aliens vs. Predator role as Karl Bishop Weylund, the man upon whom android Bishop was based.

"They've made me look very good," said Henriksen. "This is the first time I've been fully represented in a game, with my voice and how I look, and the Rebellion guys have done a great job. I might score from this game!"

Henriksen didn't begin his acting career until he was 30 years-old, having spent his youth getting into trouble and spending some time in jail. Still, he soon became pals with James Cameron and Bruce Kenselaar and the rest, as they say, is history.

Did you know that James Cameron originally had Henriksen in mind to be The Terminator? Nor did I until I read Wikipedia.

The original Terminator.

Henriksen has also appeared in Modern Warfare 2 as General Shepherd, The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena as Dacher and in Mass Effect as Admiral Steven Hackett.
