Who would like some news?
Deep Silver have posted voice cast for Saints Row IV, so we now know some more about exactly which older characters will be appearing in the game.
These characters are expected to mostly appear within simulations, but I'm hopeful that all of them will be unlocked as Homies in the game.
Most of them are voiced by the same actors, which some unfortunate exceptions. I assume that Eliza Dushku and Mila Kunis are not within the budget.

Original Deep Silver news post: http://www.deepsilver.com/news/newsdetails/article/saints-row-iv-voice-cast/
- I'd just like to repeat how much I dislike so-called "news" sites who re-post information as if it is exclusive to them, without crediting the actual source.
- I know I discussed this in a recent blog post, but the reason I bring this again is that because of this type of poor news reporting, it actually took me a few minutes to determine where this information originated.
- Every website posting about this list is getting their information from this page: http://www.deepsilver.com/news/newsdetails/article/saints-row-iv-voice-cast/
- When my brother's parrot gets an exclusive interview with Steve Jaros, then we'll credit my brother's parrot. But when my brother's parrot's dentist's friend reads LameGameReporter, who got their information from the publisher's website, we don't credit my brother's parrot (the middle-man), we credit the publisher's website (the source).
- Because that's where the information came from, even though I heard it from a parrot.
- This has been a policy on the Saints Row Wiki for some time. But like all policies, it's open to discussion.
- So if you think we should start crediting my brother's "stuff my parrot says" blog for all news, let me know your reasons, and we'll start using it for all references.

- Argh, where's Andrew Kishino!? Aside from the lack of Donnie, this character list is lookin' real good.

- Apparently there was a longer leaked list, but I haven't been able to find it anywhere, so I'm unsure if it even exists.
