With the sound and voice work being such an integral part of The Darkness's critical success, what news of the voice actors?

It was confirmed today at Hell Descent that Mike Patton will bring his unique vocals back to the role.

Mike Patton's return may not alleviate some of the concerns about the development team behind the game switching hands from Starbreeze to Digital Extremes, but at least we all now know we'll have something familiar to look forward to!

The Darkness II is scheduled for an Autumn 2011 release.

Who did Patton play? 'Cuz the Italian idiot that you play in the game has both the most annoying voice ever along with the worst lines ever.

"I used to think of the subway system as a big plate of spaghetti, with all the trains being meatballs."

Ugh.
Your mom!

[Mike Patton] played the voice of The Darkness, the creature which possessed Jackie, the main character in "The Darkness". Jackie was voiced by [Kirk Acevedo]. No word yet if Acevedo will return to play Jackie in the sequel.

I think Jackie's lines got a bit better further into the game, i sort of remember ... a quick search and

Jackie Estacado: "I got my first kiss down here. I was fifteen. Some hooker named Candy. She crossed her legs, broke my sunglasses. Good times."

What really had me hooked on the first Darkness were the random phonecalls.  I spent hours dialing every phone number I could find on the internet just to listen to those funny, bizarre, and sometimes creepy conversations.  Awesome.  I hope they have some kind of addictive easter egg in the new one.

Just one darkling?? :(

I was a big fan of the interaction between the multiple Darklings - this better be 'one muthafuckin' charming' Darkling... ;)
