David Tennant Joins Cast of Rooster Teeth’s gen:Lock


At the recent Television Critics Association tour, digital media and entertainment company Rooster Teeth announced the inclusion of British actor David Tennant to the voice cast of their new sci-fi animated series, gen:Lock.

The announcement, which was made by Rooster Teeth co-founder and CCO Burnie Burns, is a big deal as David Tennant is considered as geek royalty due to his roles in various popular franchises, such Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Jessica Jones, and most notably the sci-fi juggernaut that is Doctor Who, where he played the 10th doctor for several season/series.

Since gen:Lock is a sci-fi story with anime-inspired 3D visuals, Tennant will be right at home as he voices yet another doctor, this time around it’s Dr. Rufus Weller aka Doc – the lead scientist of the Experimental Science Unit and the inventor of the gen:Lock technology. He will be joining other stars such as Michael B. Jordan, Julian Chase, Dakota Fanning, and Koichi Yamadera.

“My jaw hit the floor when I directed David as Dr. Weller for the first time,” said showrunner and head of Rooster Teeth Animation, Gray G. Haddock. “He instantly nailed the breadth of emotion, both the humor and seriousness that Weller brings to the show — there are moments that will absolutely make the audience choke up. When you listen to him play scenes against other performances such as Michael B. Jordan’s Chase, you can’t believe this cast is real.”
