Tales From the Borderlands announces all-star cast

So Brock Samson and a Jedi apprentice walk into a bar, which Nerdist is sitting at...

Okay, so Tales From the Borderlands won't play out precisely like that, but Telltale Games' latest adventure will have that kind of star power going for it, as the developer has announced the voice cast that will be taking part in the episodic series.

Sam Witwer, from the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed games, and Chris Hardwick (The Talking Dead, @midnight) have joined the cast for the project. Hardwick will play the main role of Vaughn, while Witwer will voice the character of Rhys, his best friend. These two are Hyperion workers who venture out into Pandora to seek a mysterious vault key.

In addition, Nolan North (of Uncharted fame) and Patrick Warburton (Brock Samson of Venture Bros.) will join the cast, along with various Borderlands vets, including Dameon Clarke reprising his role of Handsome Jack.

Telltale will be showing the game behind closed doors next week at E3. No doubt we'll be getting an earful.
