Today at RTX Austin, Rooster Teeth’s annual fandom convention, Gray G. Haddock, Head of Rooster Teeth Animation and showrunner for the upcoming anime-style series gen:LOCK, announced the Rooster Teeth voice cast for the show, and released a second teaser that features David Tennant voicing the character Doc for the first time. In gen:LOCK, Earth’s last free society is on the losing side of a global war, and recruits a diverse team of young pilots to control the next generation of giant, weaponized robot bodies known as mecha. These daring recruits will find, however, that their newfound abilities come at no small cost.
Lindsay Jones (voice of Ruby Rose in RWBY) will voice Razzle, Chase’s squadron leader. Miles Luna (voice of Jaune Arc in RWBY) will voice Miguel Miggs Garza, Chase’s best friend. Blaine Gibson (voice of Nerf in Camp Camp) will voice Sinclair, an experienced ranger recruited to the gen:LOCK program, Haddock (voice of Roman Torchwick in ?RWBY?) will voice Leon, a mech unit leader, and Chad James (voice of Boomstick in ?DEATH BATTLE?) will voice Jodie, a mech pilot and close friend to Miranda.
gen:LOCK’s voice cast is led by Michael B. Jordan (Black Panther, Creed) who voices the main character, Julian Chase, and also includes Dakota Fanning (The Alienist, Twilight Saga) voicing expert mech pilot and Chase?s love interest, Miranda Worth, K’ichi Yamadera (Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell) voicing Kazu Iida, one of the new recruits transferring from Japan?s military forces, to fight alongside Chase in the gen:LOCK program, and Tennant voicing Dr. Rufus Weller aka Doc, a lead scientist with the Experimental Science Unit (ESU) and the inventor of the gen:LOCK technology.
