After the reveal a couple of weeks back that Will Yun Lee would be heading up the voice cast of United Front Games’ Sleeping Dogs, I’ve been curious about how the developer along with publisher Square Enix planned on filling out the rest of the voice cast. And apparently, they decided to go the Hong Kong/Hollywood route, bringing on a lot of familiar actors from both industries.
More details about the cast as well as some expanded story details after the jump.
Stone, Liu, and Lee are joined by the previously announced Edison Chen (Infernal Affairs), and Tom Wilkinson (Batman Begins), who plays police inspector Pendrew. Perry Shen (Better Luck Tomorrow). Mortal Kombat’s Robin Shou joins the cast along with James Hong (Blade Runner, Kung Fu Panda), Kelly Hu (X2), Yunjin Kim (Lost), Terrence Yin (New Police Story), and Tzi-Ma (Rush Hour).
The story follows Will Yun Lee’s undercover cop character Wei Shen as he infiltrates the triads, gaining the trust of his childhood friend to join the Sun on Yee organization and eventually working his way up the ladder to become a lieutenant to boss “Red Pole” Winston Chu (Shen).
Sleeping Dogs will be available August 14th for the PS3, PC, and Xbox 360.
A new trailer for Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone‘s Gangster Squad has been released!
The crime drama hits theaters September 7 – we can’t wait to see it! Here’s a synopsis:
Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and – if he has his way – every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control.
It’s enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop…except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen’s world apart.
Emma Stone has revealed how she overcame crippling panic attacks as a child by embracing acting.
The Help star felt unable to leave her mother’s side until she decided to focus on the arts after she was cast in a school play at the tender age of six.
She told Bliss magazine: “It hit me really hard. It freaked me out and I couldn’t leave my mom’s side, but then I remembered how good it felt to be on stage. I met other people like me, who liked the same things I liked. It became this place where I could be myself and express myself.”
Stone is fast becoming one of the most popular female stars in Hollywood – boys want to date her and girls want to be her best friend.
Last month in London she sparkled at the premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man, in which she stars as Peter Parker’s girlfriend Gwen Stacy, her highest-profile role yet.
And last year Stone reached the A-List ranks of fame, after playing two highly-likeable characters in two of 2011′s most commercially successful films.
As Skeeter in The Help, a bright Southern girl seeking civil rights for the black women in her community by telling their stories in a novel, Stone won both critical acclaim – scooping a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress and winning a Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Cast – and more fans.
Her popularity was also recognised last month when, at the MTV Movie Awards, Stone was awarded with the first-ever Trailblazer Award for her wildly successful career – all this at the age of 23 – and her ability to connect with audiences.
Emma is going to be featured in the August edition of British Vogue. I have added 1 new picture. Enjoy!

She kissed Ryan Gosling in “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” stole the show in 2011′s “The Help” and dates her “Amazing Spider-Man” costar Andrew Garfield.
Still, Emma Stone came from humble beginnings, and she’s the first to admit it. The actress got her start covering Pat Benatar’s “We Belong” on “The New Partridge Family,” which aired in 2004 on VH1.
“It was totally, 100 percent a reality show,” Stone told The Daily Beast of the series, based on the ’70s hit show “The Partridge Family. “My mom had never pushed me to audition for anything, but she saw a commercial on TV for it and said, ‘You look like Susan Dey a little, and just dyed your hair brown … Why don’t you give this a shot? I have a weird feeling.’ I did it and ended up winning. I don’t regret it for a minute.”
