• EA and Starbreeze Studios have announced that actress Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Men In Black II) and actor Brian Cox (The Bourne Identity) will headline the Hollywood cast of Syndicate.  The stars take on the role of cutthroat executives working for the biggest and most aggressive syndicate, EuroCorp, in a near-future world ruled by three mega-corporations.

    “Syndicate immerses players deep into a dystopian world of unscrupulous corporations and chip augmented enforcers,” said Mikael Nermark, CEO of Starbreeze Studios.  “These agents are the weapons of this war for market dominance and we needed strong talent to represent these intense characters.  We are honored to have worked with the incredible Rosario Dawson, Brian Cox and Michael Wincott to make this world come alive.”

    Dawson, the famed actress of Unstoppable, Sin City and Grindhouse, plays Lily Drawl, the rising star of EuroCorp.  With a shattered and conflicted psyche, Lily is torn between the demands of her corporate masters and the underground resistance to syndicate rule.  She knows that this balancing act can only last for so long before she falls, most likely, to her death.

    “I’m amazed how videogames have become so deep in story, delivering fantastic worlds and memorable characters rivaling big Hollywood films,” said Rosario Dawson.  “I was excited when EA approached me to play Lily Drawl in Syndicate.  She’s an interesting and strong female character.  How cool is it to play the mastermind who designed the military chip inside the player’s head!”

    Rounding out the cast is Emmy Award-winning actor, Brian Cox (The Bourne Identity, X2, Troy), who plays Jack Denham and Michael Wincott (The Crow) who voices Jules Merit in Syndicate.  Both play significant roles at the top of Eurocorp’s organization.  Jack is the ruthless power behind the boardroom throne, while Jules is a highly regarded senior agent having led many successful operations against the Aspari corporation.
