I hope they don't use any well-known actors for the voices. I don't want to be talking to some Archer and not be able to stop seeing Orlando Bloom in my head. I'm like this is movies too when actors become so famous that they stop acting and their character becomes little more than an extension of themselves.
Christopher Walken as Cain, anyone?
You just KNOW that would make his massive ramblings hilarious to listen to, his voice has a way of making fucking anything funny. He could tell me I contracted HIV from a disease ridden prostitute, and I'd still giggle like a schoolgirl.
In all Seriousness though, I hope we don't get massively known actors for this game. There are some who can pull it off and not annoy the hell out of me (Like Liam Neeson in Fallout 3, he did a hell of a job), but usually when big actors do voice acting in games, you can't get them out of your head.
Little known actors, or better yet, the people who did the voices in D2/D1, would be much preferred. But I guess if Blizzard wants to sell celebs to us through their game, oh well, I'll manage.

I do think that Michael McConnohie should definately make a return to do at least 2 voices. He is one of the most incredible voice actors I've ever heard.
Voices he has done:
Warcraft III: Lord Uther, Kel Thuzad
WoW WOTLK: The Lich King, King Ymiron, Commander Colurg
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie (1990): Tatsu
Check him out on IMDB, his list of work is incredible!
Also, an obvious return, already confirmed is, Michael Gough for Cain.
But I do agree with at least 90% of the voice actors either returning from DI and DII, or they are unknown. BLIZZARD, GET A LOT OF ENGLISH ACTORS. They have better vocal training than Americans.
Starcraft fans had the same hope. Too bad Blizz was more interested in getting the hot Sci-Fi actress of the month instead of the classic voice behind Kerrigan back.
Ozzy, Raimi, the BG chick... it is all about the celebrities these days, baby!
She's not just any sci-fi chick. She's good in being the bad guy or should I say girl (especially if you watch her on Battlestar Galactica) and she's someone you LOVE to hate. I bet she can do a good job replacing the original Kerrigan. Have you watch "Old Rivals CG"? That's an example how good she can do the job, just you wait and see.
