Updates on Black, Judge from San Diego Comic Con

News about Stargate stars Christopher Judge and Claudia Black has come out of the San Diego Comic Con recently:

He was a panelist with the Dead Space team from Visceral Games who are developing the animated film Dead Space Aftermath for which he lent his voice. This report from Game Spot gives us an glimpse into his Dead Space experience:

Next it was Judge talking about his voice acting work in Dead Space Aftermath. Judge, who has a sci-fi background playing Teal’c on Stargate SG-1, was asked about some of the challenges going from a traditional acting medium like television to using purely his voice in an animated movie. He joked that the hardest part was going from a “monosyllabic” character like Teal’c to playing someone far less stoic. Expanding on that joke with some seriousness, Judge said that he initially had a hard time believing that the script was for an animated movie, praising the script for being far more “emotional” than most animated fare. They then showed a very work-in-progress clip from Aftermath, which despite its unfinished animation, served to show that the plot will deal with Judge’s character searching desperately for his daughter.

G4TV reports that Judge’s character’s name is Cutner and that Aftermath will be released in both DVD and Blu-ray formats.

In this report from Gamer Zines, we get a summary of Aftermath as it applies to the world of Dead Space:

Due to release in January 2011, Dead Space Aftermath, the animated feature, will explain the events of the first-responder mission to Aegis VII and explores how the Government sends an unwitting crew of people to get exposed to Marker shards. The Government is secretly trying to produce a viable “Marker blueprint” carrier, no matter the costs.

She was a panelist with Epic Games during which she announced that she will be doing voice work for Gears of War 3. From the Epic Games website:

The spectacular conclusion to one of the games industry’s most memorable and celebrated sagas, Gears of War 3, is poised to take the world by storm next spring. At this time next year, fans around the world will experience the epic story finale to the Gears of War trilogy, when the third installment in one of the biggest franchises in Xbox history arrives in stores worldwide: April 5, 2011, in North America, April 7 in Japan, and April 8 in Europe and the rest of the world.

More about her character comes from Cinema Blend’s Game Blend and Digital Spy:

Sci-fi fans will be pleased to know that the space vixen, Claudia Black, from former popular shows like Stargate: SG-1 will be joining the voice-cast of Gears of War 3. […] Claudia Black’s role will be designated to the sexy female [COGS] soldier, Sam [Byrne]. She’ll be hanging with the big boys (literally, they’re very big) and blasting down on the Locust horde like no tomorrow.

Black’s previous Epic Games title was Mass Effect 2, which was released in January this year.
