Prepare for quite a mix of known actors and actresses handling live action scenes in EA's upcoming Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 title. The video game publisher is bringing together an interesting combination of "award-winning actors, action stars, science fiction legends, up-and-coming starlets from around the globe and even mixed martial artists."

EA today unveiled the cast plugged into this version of the Command & Conquer franchise's "trademark live-action movie sequences." It includes: Gemma Atkinson (the UK’s Hollyoaks), Tim Curry (Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Hunt for Red October), Andrew Divoff (LOST), Kelly Hu (X2, The Scorpion King), Jenny McCarthy (Scream 3, former Playboy Playmate), Ivana Milicevic (Casino Royale), Jonathan Pryce (Pirates of the Caribbean), J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man, Juno), Autumn Reeser (The OC), Peter Stormare (Prison Break, Armageddon), George Takei (Star Trek, Heroes), and two of the most recognizable names in competitive mixed martial arts Randy “The Natural” Couture (former UFC Heavyweight champion) and Gina “Conviction” Carano (American Gladiators).

EA believes this cast mix will deliver a quality production on level with that of movies and television shows. The publisher said those wanting to see more of the cast in action can order a special limited edition of the game, debuting this fall for the PC and Xbox 360. It includes a bonus DVD showing interviews with the talent and a behind the scenes look at the shooting of the game’s cinematic sequences.
