Lollipop Chainsaw to feature all-star voice cast

Warner Bros Interactive has lined up a stellar cast of recognisable names to supply vocal performances for its hyperactive new action game Lollipop Chainsaw.

The new Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 title features a script written by Hollywood filmmaker James Gunn, of Slither and Dawn of the Dead fame, helping the project to attract some top acting talent.

Playing the lead role of zombie-killing cheerleader Juliet Starling is multitalented voice-acting legend Tara Strong, a veteran of hundreds of animations and videogames, including the part of Harley Quinn in last year's Batman: Arkham City.

Michael Rosenbaum, aka Smallville's Lex Luthor, voices the disembodied head of Juliet's boyfriend Nick, while the supporting cast is fleshed out by acclaimed actors like Linda Cardellini, Shawnee Smith, Michael Rooker and Gregg Henry.

Meanwhile, rocker Jimmy Euringer of the band Mindless Self Indulgence will play the deranged punk boss Zed, as well as providing contributions to Akira Yamaoka's soundtrack.

Lollipop Chainsaw is out this June and is the latest over-the-top action spectacular from Grasshopper Manufacture and maverick designer Goichi Suda, creator of No More Heroes and Shadows of the Damned.
